I read this quote from Harry Potter in the book or on the Internet, I don't remember. I think I read it 3-4 years ago. It was like

Things are gonna get serious for you.

This quote was a play on his name.

This conversation took place between Sirius Black and someone (who was a Muggle, not a wizard).

I think he was riding his motorcycle as well.

It's a long task to go through all the novels, but I tried looking in those where Sirius appeared. However, I still couldn't find that quote.

    Perhaps it was just a meme?

  • No. I don't think so. It was in the snippet of the story.

The quote is from an untitled 2008 short story sold at a charity auction:

'Things'll be seriously black for you in a minute, you cheeky little--'

    Ah, fair enough. I assumed that was authorized since it was so easy to find and openly shown in a well-known site, but feel very free to roll my edit back.

    @Gaultheria - A good quality scan of both sides of the postcard used to be freely available online from Waterstone's website. As far as I'm aware, there were never any official transcripts made.
