Sirius Black
(This is a ficticious journal of Sirius Black for the RPG ootp_united, maintained by infinitenesmith. All Harry Potter characters and references ©JKR.)


Name: Sirius Black
Age: ~36
About him: Rumors of his death have been greatly exaggerated. Alive and well, holding down the fort at Grimmauld Place until he can find a better place to live.

(In fact, his "death" at the Department of Mysteries was a ruse, carefully planned by him and Dumbledore in an attempt to give Sirius more freedom. The Death Eaters are convinced he's dead and have taken their attention away from him completely. The Ministry, having been let in on the truth, is giving him a full pardon, and so Sirius is finally able to live a more public life.)

Troubled and irresponsible, determined to the point of stubbornness, borderline obsessive, and tries to hide his inner sensitivity with marginal success--all inner workings of Sirius Black.

Although fiercely loyal to the Order, Sirius has a tendency to let his personal problems and his past get the better of him. The good old Black family genetics (plus twelve years in Azkaban) ensure that he has some measure of suppressed anger and possibly insanity; he snaps at the drop of a hat, has frequent breakdowns, and lives in a perpetual state of knurdness, which partly accounts for his suffering from an excessive form of alcoholism. Cigarettes are another vice of his, although he usually takes care not to smoke in the house when those possessing a more sensitive nose are around.

Sirius has always had an affinity for rock and rock 'n' roll music, especially the Muggle variety. In his youth, he frequently went behind his mother's back to record shops and built an impressive collection of albums, including music by the Beatles, the Grateful Dead, the Who, Led Zepplin, the Moody Blues, the Rolling Stones, and a wizarding band called Ouroboros. (Ouroboros was made up entirely of half-bloods and Muggle-borns and was forced to go into hiding after their 1974 album due to the severity of the first war, a move which made their albums become incredibly valuable almost overnight.)

Wizard robes don't find their way out of Sirius's closet unless absolutely necessary. He feels more at home in jeans and t-shirt, although he doesn't bother with decency when he's in the house alone and can often be found lounging in his boxers. Most of the clothes he wore before landing in Azkaban no longer fit, due mostly to his forgetting or not wanting to eat most of the time. Although he'll eat if someone puts food in front of him, years of prison food and a subsequent diet of booze have left him with little desire to prepare his own meals.

Considers his glory days over in the dating department. Just the tiniest bit vain when it comes to his hair. Hates Snape, worries about Harry, considers Remus his best friend. Still finds Dumbledore to be a fountain of wisdom, if somewhat odd wisdom. Is deeply in love with Samantha Johnson for reasons he can't quite explain, and probably wouldn't admit to himself if he could.

You smell a little like summer
But you always look like rain
You take too long in the shower
But lately I can't stand to pass the blame
'Cause I just wanna feel beautiful
And I just need you to be okay
Still, I envy what you're hiding
And somehow I think that I miss feeling that way
~ Almost Awake, "Ray Gun"

The deep end, the deep end
People talk a lot but they don't know
They pretend, they pretend
They don't really know how deep it goes
~ They Might Be Giants, "Climbing the Walls"

Full bottle in front of me
Time to roll up my sleeves and get to work
And after many glasses of work
I get pain in the brain
~ They Might Be Giants, "Your Own Worst Enemy"

I'm so happy, dancing while the Grim Reaper
Cuts, cuts, cuts, but he can't get me
I'm as clever as can be, and I'm very quick
But don't forget, you've only got so many tricks
No on lives forever!
~ Oingo Boingo, "No One Lives Forever"
