How to Get Over Sirius Black's Death

When Sirius died in the fifth Harry Potter book, it devastated many of us loyal fan girls. These are steps to help you get over his death.


1. Read the scene where he dies, over and over. It will make it hurt less as you begin to accept the truth.

2. Realize that JK Rowling is very considerate towards us fan girls and mentions Sirius a lot in the 6th and 7th books and even includes flashback scenes that he is in.

4. If all else fails, just live in denial.
