The Arrangement

Disclaimer:All characters belong to J.K. Rowling. I'm just having a little fun with them.

Summery: James Potter never married Lily Evans. Who is Cale Snape and what does have to do with James Potter and Draco Malfoy? Does Harry Potter still exist?

A/N:This is completely AU. However there are spoilers for Book 1 and Book 3. This story will be SLASH. There will also be mentions of MPREG, though it is not descriptive. Story is PG-13 for now. Rating may change later as this is a WIP. This will eventually be HP/DM.

Prologue

James Potter made his way out of Hogwarts castle under his invisibility cloak. He was glad the full moon wasn't for another week. Despite this fact he was headed for the Whomping Willow and the passage to the Shrieking Shack.

It was the night before his and his love's graduation from Hogwarts and he had something he had to do. He did not want to be separated from the one he loved and was preparing to make it known to his one true love-his soulmate.

As soon as he was in the passage under the willow he took off the cloak and began to run to the shack. A few minutes later he reached the entrance and stopped to catch his breath. He slowly opened the door and made his way up the stairs. When he reached the top he made his way to the room Remus often slept in the day after the full moon.

When James entered the room he saw Severus Snape and both men's faces lit up with smiles. The gap between them was quickly closed. They wrapped each other tightly in their arms and stayed that way for several minutes.

James slowly pulled out of the embrace to look into Severus' eyes. James took a hold of Sev's hands and led him over to the bed in the middle of the room. Once Sev was sitting on the edge of the bed James dropped to one knee and pulled a small velvet box out of his pocket.

"Sev, I love you so much. I'm tired of sneaking around with you. I want the whole world to know that we are together. Would you do me the honor of bonding with me so I can show the whole world who I belong to?"

Severus just sat there looking at James for several minutes. James was beginning to think Sev was going to turn him down when Severus finally spoke.

"Are you sure about this James? You know how Headmaster Dumbledore feels about two wizards bonding."

"What can the headmaster possibly do to us? We're graduating in the morning. He can't stop us from spending the rest of our lives together." James said soothingly, hoping Severus would say yes.

"Oh, James. I would love to bond with you and spend the rest of my life with you." James slipped a plain gold band onto Severus' hand and then leaned forward to kiss him. Sev had just made him the happiest man on earth.
