"Sirius Black, what is this?"

Sirius jumped and spun around. His mother was standing in his bedroom, staring with horror at his walls, which he had been in the process of papering with pictures torn from Muggle magazines.

Sirius was silent as she pulled them off the walls, but when she stormed out, he hissed, "Because I'm a Black."
