There were many things Sirius disliked about Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place, he reflected when he returned there, after offering it to Dumbledore for the Order of the Phoenix. He disliked the dust and the narrow corridors and the moth eaten curtains and rugs. He disliked the stuffed elf heads, and the living elf that crawled around the place. He disliked the hideous troll's leg umbrella stand in the corridor that Tonks always tripped over. He disliked the memories that it held for him.

But most of all, he disliked the screaming portrait of his mother that hung by the door.
