Characters: Severus Snape, Eileen Prince, Tobias Snape, Lily Evans, Petunia Evans
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): LGBT slurs; implied domestic violence between spouses.
Note: I like something Laverne Cox said: "Sylvia Rivera warned us about becoming a movement that was only for white, middle class people." She was talking about how dysfunctional the LGBT community is, but it's a healthy warning for any space, including Harry Potter. It's no fun to limit Snape as a cis gay man. This story, Aegris, is based off the idea that Snape may be a trans woman. The book Eileen Prince reads is Pragmatism by William James, published 1907. Lastly, thanks to AP for planting the idea; and, williamsnickers, my faithful editor!
Summary: Severus, at nine years old, meets Lily Evans. He is not in love, but he is strangely drawn to her.
