Sirius awoke to horrific screaming that he was quite sure he'd heard enough of in life.

"ASSOCIATING WITH MUDBLOODS! HALF-BREEDS! MUGGLES! HORRID BOY, TARNISHING THE FAMILY NAME! OUT! OUT OF MY HOUSE! DISGRACE TO THE WIZARDING WORLD! MY SON, MY OWN SON!"

He kneaded his temples with his fingertips, hoping that dealing with his mother's screaming voice after his death was merely temporary. Perhaps once he was done experiencing this particular horror, he would be able to do something more interesting, like haunt Harry, or spy on Remus in the shower.

"FILTHY BOY, STUCK WITH YOU FOR ETERNITY!"

No, apparently it isn't temporary at all.

The teenager, clothed in Quidditch robes, looked down at the newest arrival to the Other World, who was currently staring at his hands in apparent confusion. "You're dead, Sirius." It was a matter-of-fact statement, not a question.

"How dead? Definitely dead, or didn't-see-a-body dead?"

"Didn't-see-a-body dead. You tumbled through the Veil of Utter Doom."

"Veil of Utter Doom?"

"That's what we call it here. Most of us come to the other world via actual deaths rather than stumbling through some Ministry-protected Death Curtain." The boy -- Cedric -- snorted.

Sirius frowned. "Is it more like never-coming-back dead, or haunts-you-in-your-sleep dead?"

"Never-coming-back dead."

"Well." He coughed. "That sucks."
