A Fine Line: Severus Snape/Harry Potter

Title: A Fine Line
Pairing: Severus Snape/Harry Potter
Fandom: Harry Potter
Spoilers: Through Order of the Phoenix
Notes: Page numbers refer to U.S. paperbacks.
Disclaimer: Snape/Harry is a popular pairing, and it's one people ship for very different reasons. I think this is a relatively comprehensive view of those reasons, but it's inevitable that I haven't hit on everything. People may have other reasons, or may disagree with some of what I say here. I think that's brilliant and lovely and I'd love to hear your thoughts, particularly if they're different than mine. Please. Call me out.
Acknowledgements: Piles of thanks to my f-list for the beta, to the Snape/Harry community for their suggestions and comments and entire existence, aubrem for holding my hand, cordelia_v for assorted assistance and comments and critique, and individum for helpful tips. Also, I'm crap at titles, so apologies on that.
ETA 2008: Obviously, a lot has changed since I wrote this essay. I'm not going to update the meta, but I have updated the links. Except I did it over here. Most of the links in this post are currently broken; I'm not sure when I'll get around to fixing them.
