Harry saw Sirius duck Bellatrix's jet of red light: he was laughing at her.
'Come on, you can do better than that!' he yelled, his voice echoing around the cavernous room.
The second jet of light hit him squarely on the chest.
The laughter had not quite died from his face, but his eyes widened in shock.
Harry released Neville, though he was unaware of doing so. He was jumping down the steps again, pulling out his wand, as Dumbledore, too, turned towards the dais.
It seemed to take Sirius an age to tall: his body curved in a graceful arc as he sank backwards through the ragged veil hanging from the arch.
Harry saw the look of mingled fear and surprise on his godfathers wasted, once-handsome face as he fell through the ancient doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment as though in a high wind, then fell back into place.
Harry heard Bellatrix Lestrange's triumphant scream, but knew it meant nothing — Sirius had only just fallen through the archway, he would reappear from the other side any second . . .
But Sirius did not reappear.
'SIRIUS!' Harry yelled. 'SIRIUS!'
He had reached the floor, his breath coming in searing gasps. Sirius must be just behind the curtain, he, Harry, would pull him back out . . .
But as he reached the ground and sprinted towards the dais, Lupin grabbed Harry around the chest, holding him back.
There's nothing you can do, Harry — '
'Get him, save him, he's only just gone through!'
' — it's too late, Harry.'
'We can still reach him — ' Harry struggled hard and viciously, but Lupin would not let go . . .
There's nothing you can do, Harry . . . nothing . . . he's gone.'

~ J.K.Rowling - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Chapter Beyond the Veil)

Can we get this straight? My favorite character fell through a freaking curtain. Why? Awesome depiction! 💜

Did they ever find Sirius's body? I'm just asking because if they didn't... well, the book didn't say that Bellatrix hit him with a deadly curse, so isn't there some teeny tiny minuscule possibility that Sirius is alive in a parallel world? Yes I am aware that I make no sense.

god, I remember when I first read it. I was crying and everything and then I was like, "wait! It was really vague so he'll pop out from outta no where and be like 'lol, jk I'm still here!'" I was SO sure that he was still alive and JK would bring him back. So I waited... and waited and I was all the way through the godD*mn epilogue thinking "WHERE IS HE!!!?" -sigh- smh. He's still alive I just know it!

*sobs* I can't believe it, even though the series is over, I keep expecting him to pop out of the veil and be like, "hehehe- just kidding."

Fantastic comic. I just look at it and think "professional comic book."

That piece of skin was supposed to be Lupin, holding Harry back, but there was a huge chunk of text all over his face, so I decided to just draw him in a vague way :blushes:

Thank you so much for your comments! :glomp:
