Funny, quick, interesting, and something that fell into place very nicely without any central planning.
Being sorted into Gryffindor was possibly the worst fate imaginable for Sirius Black, eldest son of a long line of ancient and noble pure-blooded Slytherins. He inevitably found himself pushed and pulled between his Dark family and his Light friends, and he wasn't even sure what side he was supposed to be on anymore.
We know that Dorcas Meadows was killed by Voldemort himself, but why? What made her so important that he had to personally search her out himself? And is that fact that she was next to Sirius in that Order picture significant?

"One more thing I've learned about pain. It makes you innumerate. You lose the ability to count your blessings. All you can do is wait for it to go away. Get yourself through the day. That's doable. I have things to do, people to see. Then go home -- and get yourself through the night." So how do you cope with losing Sirius Black -- again? In the aftermath of the Department of Mysteries battle, Remus Lupin tries different ways. Because whatever gets you through the night is all right. [Not R/S, by the way.]
[AU OotP] After his exoneration, Sirius Black discovered that picking up the pieces of his life was not exactly the easiest thing in the world, especially since his former almost-fiancée was determined to ignore his existence.

And then a slightly mad former dark wizard with a death wish decided to rejoin the Death Eaters in order to complete his final mission: destroying the Horcruxes. As usual, Harry remains completely oblivious.

Sirius Black grew up in a house which taught him that he was superior to other people, who were heartless, and showed little or no emotion. And when a person lived his first eleven years like this, one would easily expect him to turn into a pureblood maniac, a dark arts addict, and an immediate Slytherin. But when Sirius Black was the first of his kind to defy that rule, things changed.
Throughout their years at Hogwarts the Marauders have always lived their lives in the same way, making the same choices and decisions over and over without change. Lily has always pushed James away in fear that if she lets her guard down he will let her down. Aurora is positive she's not in love with Remus and won't hear any different because she is ultimately afraid of what will happen if she faces her emotions. Raine is afraid to speak. Peter has always hid in the shadows of his three best mates. Well, this year they all decided that it is time for change. This is the year they never expected to come.
