When did I start shipping Sirius/James and why: I started shipping Sirius/James mutually tonight (I already had Sirius->James as part of my headcanon, for a while). I was doing some plot work on my Severus/Lily AU fic and decided to try and nail down who I wanted to pair James up with in the end (since I didn't want him forever alone) and it suddenly struck me that I had not seriously considered the obvious: mutual Sirius/James! Of course! How did I not see it before? I love the Relationship Upgrade trope, Sirius/James goes perfectly with my #1 OTP of Severus/Lily, Sirius gets to be with the one he loves, and I'm hard pressed to think of who else I could have Sirius fall in love with besides James (somehow I can see James falling in love again if he doesn't get to be with Lily, but I had trouble picturing Sirius as anything other than a casual dating bachelor if he wasn't with James...or maybe Remus, but I prefer Tonks/Remus to Sirius/Remus, so...). Ah, now James/Lily makes my shipper heart sad for two reasons, LOL (although I support it in canon). Sirius/James is now officially my #2 OTP. :)

If anyone knows of any Sirius/James fics that go AU with an S/J happy ending (and don't include Lily bashing), please do rec them to me. Like with Severus/Lily, I'll read the canon compliant fics every now and then, when I can handle being gutted by the angst and/or when I can handle the bittersweetness of a momentary getting together before the relationship is ultimately doomed, but I prefer a fic where my shipper heart doesn't have to be sad (for either of my OTP's, but if I'm going for S/J I'll be focused on S/J). S/J fics that don't mention the impending doom and could be taking place in an AU where S/J wind up together, would work, too. Angst that resolves to a happy ending is also cool.

Feel free to rec me any really good S/J fics, though, even if they are likely to gut me or are bittersweet, as I can always add them to my 'to be read' pile, for later. ;)

My personal favorite is garderob, which is technically a collaboration between fictionalcandie (who mostly writes under gailsauce) and duva. There is some canon-compliant/dark stuff in there, so watch your step, but overall it's very "Sirius and James live happily ever after. Yayyyy!", which is my absolute favorite type of fic.

Welcome to the fandom!
