Pairing: sirius black x auror!reader
Requested by: anon
Summary: Sirius grows very protective of you. Maybe it’s part of his loyal nature, maybe it’s instinct , maybe he just feels the need to protect you…
Warnings: swearing, mentions of injury
Wincing as Mrs Weasley dabbed essence of dittany into the deep cut in your cheek, you gritted your teeth, trying to suppress your groan of pain.
“Almost done, dear,” she said kindly. The weasley matriarch, like many members of the order, had a bit of a soft spot for you. You had graduated hogwarts only a few years prior, and you were very recently named as a junior auror. To a lot of them, you were in the same category as Harry and his friends, fighting the elder’s war. That being said, you were fiery, unafraid to speak out if you disagreed, and always willing to help out, even if it meant putting yourself at risk.
“Miss YLN… seems somebody forgot ‘protego’…” you rolled your eyes at the familiar drawl of Severus Snape.
“Nice of you to show up, Severus,” you said icily, your back to him. He expected you to still call him professor, or at the very least Snape, but you insisted on using his first name, to piss him off if anything.
Mrs Weasleys eyes flashed slightly. “That’s all done. I’m afraid it’ll scar a bit… nothing too drastic,” you shrugged. You were fine with getting stars for your work- you had a rather nice jagged one just above your ear. “Anything broken, dislocated? Sprained? Twisted?” You shook your head smiling at her as she put her stuff away.
“Perhaps, Alastor… you should consider sending more… experienced… aurors on these raids of yours…” Snape smirked. “It seems Miss YLN still struggles with the most basic of defensive spells,” you pursed your lips, and before Moody could defend you, you rounded on Snape.
“And perhaps you should shut the fuck up for once in your life,” you hissed. “I put up with enough of your shit as a teenager. I don’t need to put up with it now. If you’ve so much to say about my capabilities as an auror and a member of the order, take it up with Dumbledore. Oh, sorry, forgive me. You’re too busy being his and Voldemort’s little lapdog, and planning out how you’re going to make eleven year olds cry in a few months time,” the room had fallen silent and Sirius, who had just walked in, laughing with remus, watched the situation intrigued. “And as a matter of fact, there are two more confirmed death eaters rotting in Azkaban, and three under interrogation because of me tonight, so don’t you fucking dare question my abilities as an auror,” you didn’t give Snape a chance to reply before you turned on your heel and marched out of the room, the air glittering around you as you brushed past a stunned Sirius and Remus.
There was a knock on your door. “It needed to be said,” you called out, inspecting your new scar in the mirror. “Come in,”
Sirius came in and arched his brows at you. “I mean… that was impressive,” he grinned at you. “You’re sharp with your words, YN… but in terms of defence…”
You glared at Sirius. “If you dare agree with Severus, you and him can go and fuck yourselves,” you said, though your eyes glimmered with hurt. Sirius’s grin fell.
“No no, love, no not at all,” he said softly.
You sighed, turning to face him. “It’s just… when I was at school… my defence teacher was rubbish. Utterly crap. And then when Harry came and got rid of him, It was time for me to leave school. So… most of what I know I learned myself or… picked up from the other aurors…”
He frowned at you. It hurt, seeing you like this. You were normally so full of fight. “I just feel useless,” you mumbled, looking down, your entire body seeming to wilt. In a few short strides, Sirius was hugging you tightly.
“You are not useless, YN. Don’t you ever say that,” he said firmly, rubbing your back as you cried softly. “Like you said, just tonight you got two death eater bastards locked up, and three suspects. D’you know how amazing that is? Some aurors are lucky to trace one suspect. So what if you get a bit bloodied up in the process? We’re here to patch you up if you need it, and frankly, it shows that you put up a fight,”
You smiled, sniffing softly, feeling a bit better. You grinned up at him. “Tell you what, YN… I’ll teach you. I’ll get remus to help, and we’ll teach you the basics that them shit teachers didn’t teach you,” he smiled and you nodded.
“I’d like that very much,” you said softly. “Thank you,”
“Anything for you,”
