Disclaimer: These characters aren't mine; they're the property of J.K. Rowling. "since feeling is first" is by e.e. cummings and is also not my property.
Summary: At the age of 65, Eileen Prince Snape is as surprised as anyone to find that she's finally developed an interest in being anybody's wife or mother.
Author's Notes: Femme, I was delighted to get the opportunity to write an Eileen-centric story! I tried to work in as many of your likes as possible. The story does require a slightly different reading than the usual for the Snape family backstory, but I hope very much that you enjoy it. I especially owe thanks to my betas, D and D, for being speedy, insightful, supportive and willing to call me out on my stupidity when I need it. Extra special thanks to bethbethbeth for organising this wonderful fest and being such an awesome and understanding mod!
since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world
my blood approves,
and kisses are a far better
fate than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
-the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says
we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph
And death i think is no parenthesis
--e.e. cummings, "since feeling is first"
