    Did it have to be either/or? Why not both?

    I believe Ms. Rowling might say...

    Sirius was there for the tie in to Harry's parents. Once that was established, he needed to go. He had nothing left to offer the story. They already had his house, his story, the reality of Azkaban, and his vengeance upon Peter. Remus basically leaves the story after HPATPOA. All Sirius had left to offer was binge drinking with Harry and exposing Snape's secret too early. Imagine Sirius trying to assist Harry and company in HPATDH.... Imagine it... Seriously... Think about it...

    Sirius would have mucked it up worse than Ron. And if he'd found out about Regulus' sacrifice, he'd have tried to out do him. Really, if Bellatrix hadn't killed him, someone else would have done it before the final battle... one of the Deatheaters, Voldemort himself... or even Snape. Sirius was a loose cannon... and Snape would not have regretted sectum sempra-ing him one bit.

    And Sirius would also have competed for Harry's already tangled and fragile emotions. No, Sirius was marked for death by the author from the moment he flew away on Buckbeak.

    Arthur, on the other hand, was the source of information about the inner workings of the Ministry. He was also the patriarch of the Weasleys. Of the two, he was the much more stabilizing father figure for Harry. Arthur could do much more to resist Voldemort by working inside the Ministry and by gathering allies than Sirius ever could.

    Why did you make Ron x Hermione canon despite your better judgement of them not being compatible as a couple?
    Why did you make Harry x Ginny happen when you made Ginny rather dislikeable in things related to Harry?

    I'm still wondering how horcruxes were actually made, and how did Voldemort learn to make them?

    I think Hermione said that she found the exact instructions in one of the books and that the book was still available in the Restricted Section while Riddle was in the school since the books were removed by Dumbledore.

    How clearly do you visualize a scene before you start writing, and when do you know it's completed?
