Title: "Does he take sugar?"
Author: Aeshna
Rating: PG, gen
Characters/Pairing: Charles
Warnings: allusions to ableism
Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] firstclass100 comm, challenge "Discovery".

He thinks he understands now.

They see him... and yet they don't. They see the wheelchair, see their own assumptions and unthinking prejudices, see a hundred and one things that aren't him. He's still the same man he was: the same intellect, the same education, the same wealth and influence. Fundamentally, nothing has changed.

And yet everything has, because all they see is the damned chair.

As they might see blue scales or fur....

As they might see green hair or dark skin or silver eyes....

As they might see a hand-stitched yellow star.

Yes, he thinks he understands now.
