Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts. The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/films/J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! A list of upcoming topics can be found here.
This week's topic is:
The Marauders—you can't help but love them all, even stupid Peter. But Sirius Orion Black is my favorite. Padfoot is actually my favorite character in the whole series. He's devilishly handsome, hilarious, talented, and charming. Padfoot is at the top of his class, alongside Prongs, and he barely even tries. He was able to overcome his family's awful prejudices and allowed no one to influence his morals or values. Sirius is one of the truest Gryffindors. All the cards were lined up for him to be sorted into Slytherin, but he wasn't. Padfoot's loyalty to his friends is another amazing quality of his. It must have destroyed him for people to think that he betrayed James and Lily. He would have gladly laid down his life for them or any one of his other friends. The Marauders were lucky to have Sirius.
