"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling only recently revealed that Harry Potter's godfather, Sirius Black, was born on November 3. Yesterday, in honor of what would've been his 56th birthday, Rowling shared some fan art showing Sirius and James Potter, aka Harry's dad:
Today seems a very good day to share my favourite fan art of young Sirius with his best friend. No crying, now. https://t.co/nLwdYADwBq— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) November 3, 2015
The artist is probably crying with joy to be singled out. We see James and Sirius (smoking?! tsk tsk) in 1978. Since Sirius was born Nov. 3, 1959 and James on March 27, 1960, that would make them around 18-19 here. James only lived until 1981, murdered by Voldemort on Halloween when he was just 21. Every time Rowling takes us back down memory lane like this we want to re-watch that video combining "Harry Potter" character deaths with "Furious 7's" "See You Again."
You probably saw that Rowling is working on a children's book, and she said she has many more ideas for adult books, but we'll have to see if she can ever create another world that makes us feel as much as Harry Potter. We may not be able to take it!
