This Chapter: James shows Sirius around Godric's Hollow, and Sirius is undone by kindness. (Sirius's PoV)
Author's Note: Apologies again for the lack of Remus in this chapter. This and the last were supposed to be a single chapter, but it ran too long. I promise puppy snuggles in Ch 4. Is it creepy that I made James sit and eat cakes on his own future gravesite?
"Have your family been here all that time?" Sirius asked as they wandered over to an empty patch of grass a couple of rows back from the Dumbledore stone and sat down to eat the rest of the slightly squashed cakes Bathilda Bagshot had given them.
"Yeah," said James comfortably, reclining on the grass with a cake and a contented sigh, one arm bent behind his head. "The Potters, at least. Mum's family come from the south originally."
Sirius stuffed the last cake into his mouth and regarded his friend, envying his sense of belonging. James was as much at ease here, among the graves of his ancestors, as he was in his own bedroom. Sirius's own parents had nothing like this to pass on to their sons. Everything they had to offer felt empty compared to it.
