Hey! Could you give me a list of your top 10 marriage law fics

First, we have a tag for marriage law: if you want to explore the topic.

I was selected by my fellow admins to answer this question because I’m a sucker for this trope. Here are some of my favorites that are complete:

Lost Images By: EvilGu -M- Epilogue up! MARRIAGE LAW Hermione must marry Draco Malfoy- the only wizard that (begrudgingly) petitioned for her who is not actively trying to kill her. If only there was some loop-hole… Can the unlikely pair survive marriage, in-laws, ghosts, murderous enemies, and their own traitorous feelings?

Sold by Gryffindorclutz - M - **!!**Reworking of another story. Typical Marriage law fic rules N/C [warning: dark] 

How to Play the Baby Game in 365 DaysBy: little miss moonlight - M -  AU 7th year,the Minister has decided to pass a law to prevent his fear of Wizarding Extinction by passing a last minute law. This allows for the most unlikely, forced, couples to marry within 2 weeks and at least one baby within the year. Main paring HGDM A Dowry of a Single Galleon by Bunney - M - A Marriage Law has been enacted by the Ministry and Purebloods are being forced to choose a Muggle-born spouse. After an untimely meeting in Diagon Alley, Draco Malfoy sets his sights on Hermione Granger. Originally posted to Livejournal in 2004.
Matched By: longdistance -M- The wizarding community has not quite bounced back in terms of numbers since the end of the war. Desperate times call for desperate measures and a Marriage Law is enacted by the Ministry. Hermione isn’t even dating anyone, let alone ready to be someone’s wife. Draco has a secret that he’d rather not share. Odd couples are made and they have a year to figure it all out.

Revenge Is All The Sweeter By: Twilight to Midnight -M- A marriage law has come to pass; an unfaithful boyfriend has been caught and an enemy has been chosen. Draco and Hermione discover the fine line between love and hate. Won 2nd place at the Dramione awards for best Draco and best action/adventure!

Trusting the Enemy by gnrkrystle - M- Draco and Hermione are thrown together by a marriage law, Lucius might have gotten more than he bargained for when he suggests the match.

Laws of Marriage and Exes By: Sweetly Sarcastic -M- Hermione proposes to her ex to satisfy the Marriage Law. It goes… poorly. It doesn’t help that her ex is Draco Malfoy.

Accidental Magic By: margaritama -M- Trying to stay apart, only pulls you closer together. A Marriage Fic with a twist – a fun experiment in marriage, contrasts and distaste.

Here are some of my favorite marriage law WIPs:
The Silk Thread By: LoverGurrl411 -M- Dumbledore’s dead, the ministry’s desperate and crumbling around them, and war is on the horizon-but the only war that truly matters has yet to begin: the war of hearts. In between silence and hatred lies a twisted desire that will either consume them, or help them survive Voldemort’s rise to power together. Marriage Law Fic. AU Seventh Year. HBP Compliant.

Howl For Me By: Kittenshift17 -M- With the wizarding population at an all time low, the Ministry enacts a Marriage Law, magically pairing couples who’d never in a million years agree to even speak, let alone wed. Paired off with Malfoy, Hermione has to suffer the added indignity of the Ministry banning all contraception and forcing fertility treatment and aphrodisiacs on them all. Draco’s secret makes it worse.

An Unconventional Escape  By: Ariel Riddle - M, WIP - The landscape of the Wizarding world has changed drastically. The Dark Lord has successfully taken over both the Muggle & Magical world. But with the future of their race threatened by infertility, Voldemort is forced to enact a controversial new law. When Draco is faced with the decision of choosing a Muggleborn-there can only be one witch suitable for him. Voldy wins AU Dramione.

The Alkahest by Shadukiam - M, WIP - The Marriage Law, once enacted, has the power to destroy Hermione’s perfectly normal life. Luckily, she and Ron are already planning to obey the horrific law together as a team… Until a Malfoy-shaped wrench gets thrown into the works. Dramione. Cover by littleneko1923 (thank you!).

The Marriage Bond By: givingthisatry -M- A Marriage Law fic with a twist. 10 years ago by Ministry decree, Hermione and Draco were ordered to marry. 10 years ago Hermione said no, breaking the law and retreating into the muggle world. Now she’s back. Suddenly he can’t escape her, but the real question is - does he want to anymore? Dramione - M for adult themes and some lemons in later chapters


At the age of sixteen, Willie Francis had a death sentence on his head for murdering his boss. As with most crime of 1945, the state of Louisiana could not prove that this young man was a murderer, instead he was just suspected, charged with little evidence, and sentenced.

When it came to his date with the electric chair, something went horribly wrong. Spectators reported that the teenager screamed in pain from behind the leather hood, and exclaimed: “Take it off! Take it off! Let me breathe!” as the supposedly lethal surge of electricity was being applied. Willie became the first person in American history to survive an execution by the electric chair. It was later uncovered that the chair, nicknamed Gruesome Gertie, had been set up by a drunk prison guard.

After his ordeal, Willie was left with horrific burns on his forehead, not to mention the psychological trauma. Hearing of the botched execution, a young lawyer by the name of Bertrand DeBlanc decided to take the case. He argued that it was unjust, and cruel and unusual punishment, as prohibited in the Constitution, to subject him again to the execution process. He took the case to the Supreme Court, but lost against an all white jury. Two years later, Willie returned to the electric chair to meet his fate. His last words were “I’m about to meet the Lord with my Sunday pants and Sunday heart!”

javdux  asked:

Anitfa is attacking the wrong enemy. There are fascist out there but you're supporting them. Please learn what sharia law is. People are enforcing it on others. Because of this gays are being, thrown off rooftops, there's an increase in female discrimination, an increase of RAPE, an increase of violence against women, an increase of RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION, and a 550% terrorist attacks. All this is happening in Europe, Sweden, etc. And it's all linked to refugees and immigration you are for.

Hold my beer.

Wow.  Incredible.  How can one person fuck up so badly in seven sentences?  If there was a gold medal in bullshit “logic,” our money would be on you to win it.

You get things off to a merry start by equating the 1.8 billion Muslims in the world with the maybe 32,000 fascist shitstains that are in Daesh (aka ISIS, aka ISIL).  You’re taking the behaviour of .0017% of Muslims and claiming that all Muslims are like that.  It would be literally more accurate to claim that all Americans are in or sympathize with the KKK, since KKK members account for about .0025% of the U.S. population.  Not only do the overwhelming majority of Muslims reject Daesh’s ideology as being distinctly unIslamicMuslims are overwhemingly the victims of Daesh’s fascist terror campaign.

You also fucked up with the sharia law dogwhistle, didn’t you?  Yeah, we know what sharia law is, but it’s obvious that you don’t and you’re the one that should do some learning.  We think you should start with this or ask the imam at your nearest mosque to school you.

Don’t you think it’s weird that in places like Dearborn, Michigan (Muslim population 30%) or Birmingham, UK (Muslim population 22%) “sharia law” (or whatever the fuck your misinformed ass thinks it is) isn’t being “forced on other people?”  Because when we go to those places we see Muslims going about their lives and minding their own business and not trying to implement sharia law or forcibly convert people.

Isn’t it strange how countries with significant or majority Muslim populations like Azerbaijan, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Niger, Northern Cyprus, Sierra Leone, Tajikistan, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey, and Uzbekistan haven’t adopted sharia law?  So maybe you shouldn’t sweat it too much, partner.

Was there a horrific increase in violent hate crime in areas controlled by Daesh?  Of course there was; Daesh is a fascist organization and wherever you find fascists, you find discrimination and violence (more on that in a second!).    That’s why anti-fascists from all over the world have travelled to the area to fight Daesh and defend the Rojava revolution.

(above, members of Tabûra Enteransyonalin Rojava)

You do know about Rojava, right?  The revolution which is replacing fascist rule with an egalitarian, explicitly feminist form of anarchism called democratic confederalism?  That’s being built and defended by people who are mostly Muslims?  And it’s working?  Here, find a grownup to read this to you.

BTW, special mention to you for using the murders of LGBTQ+ people by Daesh as a screen to hide your Islamophobia.  That’s real fucking classy.  We would bet a million Euros you have sweet FA to say about Russia’s anti-gay law or the murders of LGBTQ+ people throughout Europe when it’s non-Muslims that are the perpetrators.  Fuck.  Right.  Off.

But before you do, let’s delve into the increase in religious discrimination in Europe that you’re so worried about, because we are too:

Seems like the most-discriminated religious group in Europe are Muslims, javdux; so maybe your perpetuation of racist, Islamophobic bullshite isn’t helping any.

But it’s really terrorism you’re worried about?  So are antifa.  That’s why we’re fighting against the people that are 5x more likely to kill Europeans in terror attacks - those people being neo-nazis.  

It’s funny that you single out Sweden as a place that is under seige from a discriminatory horde of violent Muslim terrorists.  Sweden has taken in a higher number of refugees per-capita than any other European country - 163,000 in 2015 alone. And it did experience three terrorist attacks this year.  One was by a Muslim asylum seeker that had been rejected by Sweden and was to be deported but no motive has been established.  But the two before that were by neo-nazis in the “Nordic Resistance Movement” who bombed two refugee shelters 

There’s been zero correlation between sexual assault numbers and refugee intake numbers in Sweden or in Germany - the country with the largest number of refugees overall.  Refugees are correlated with a drop in crime rates in the UK and in the US.   

Do you know what else happened in Sweden after it took in so many refugees?  It experienced its largest economic boom in five years, thanks to the newcomers 

So basically, javdux, you’re correct that Daesh = fascists but you’re dead wrong that Muslims = fascists (at least any more than any other religion).  You have no idea what sharia law is.  Your concern about discriminatory violence in Daesh-controlled areas is contradicted by your lack of support for the antifascist volunteers who are fighting Daesh in the YPG,YPJIFBTabûra Enteransyonal, and other antifa units.  And your alleged concerns about rapes, crime, terrorism, and religious discrimination are either terribly ill-informed or pointed in the exact opposite direction of where they should be.  

You really need to get your shit together in short fucking order of STFU.

  • Travis: my character is a human fighter named Magnus Burnsides. he is a big guy and he has sideburns and a beard but the sideburns are longer than the beard. he lived in the town of Raven's Roost until his wife and father-in-law were tragically murdered, an event that still haunts him to this day. Magnus's alignment is Lawful Good and he will do whatever it takes for the sake of justice. he is always looking to help and protect others and he can't stand to see people in pain. Magnus is a very personal character to me.
  • Justin: my character is... a wizard... named... Taako. and his last name is the same but spelled different. he is an elf... from... New Elfington. and he talks like my friend Michael for some reason. also he is gay.

Whoever had the foresight to believe that law/crime procedure shows would be a hit was a motherfucking genius and deserves some love.
