While some intersex people are diagnosed later in life, Lily Luna was diagnosed as intersex at birth. The Healers immediately started debating the surgical procedures Lily Luna would need, only to be interrupted by Harry and Ron.
Harry: “is my baby healthy?” Healer: “technically but…” Harry *opening the delivery room door*: “so the baby is healthy?” Healer “yes but surgery…” Harry *steering the Healers towards the open door*: “oy Ron, does it sound like this person is saying that my baby is healthy?” Ron *helping to crowd the Healers into the corridor*: “it does sound like they’re saying the baby is healthy” Harry: “well if the baby is healthy I think we can put experimental, cosmetic surgeries on the back-burner, don’t you?” Ron: *prying the Healer’s hands off the door frame* “yes that seems reasonable” Harry: *pushing the door closed* “I think this conversation is over and…” Healer: “Mr Potter I must insist…” Ginny: *from the bed* “fucks sake, someone hold the baby and pass me my hexing stick” *Molly silently hands Ginny her wand while the Healers back away from the door, hands raised in surrender*
Hermione disappeared to research intersex people in the magical world; returning a few hours later with half the Hogwarts Library and a stack of leaflets for intersex support groups. Two of which she’d actually helped found years before Lily Luna’s birth.
Harry was pleasantly surprised by The Prophet’s respectful announcement of Lily Luna’s birth (no misgendering, leaked medical details or speculation about the The Chosen One’s reaction). Harry later found out that within 72 hours of Lily Luna’s birth, Draco Malfoy had issued elaborate and terrifying threats of gender discrimination lawsuits to every magical editor in Britain.
Molly spent the next 3 months knitting the entire Weasley family bright yellow jumpers with purple O’s instead of the initials, inspired by the Intersex flag. Because there is no world where the Weasleys weren’t 110% extra about supporting their youngest grandchild.
When Lily Luna asked Aunt Fleur if wanting to know about makeup meant that they had to “choose” to be a girl Fleur stroked Lily Luna’s hair and told them that: “You know, the Beauxbaton’s boys were always so much better at applying makeup than the girls. They used to hold winged-eyeliner workshops in the Prefect’s bathrooms”. Lily Luna went home smiling and spent the rest of the afternoon teaching Al how to contour.
On their graduation from Hogwarts, Charlie invited Lily Luna out to the Dragon Reservations in Romania. They already knew that intersex characteristics were common among magical creatures but watching a flock of Scarlet Lilies at play still made Lily Luna well-up. Uncle Charlie may have also had something in his eye.
I started this post after realising that most of my headcanons for intersex Lily Luna won’t fit into my current fic. It’ll probably get a lot longer.
Please do let me know if you see anything insensitive or inaccurate in this post. It was written in consultation with two intersex people but I’m not personally intersex and welcome feedback :)
