|Reviews for a Disarranged Marriage

Good story but she should have kept Marcus. Ron is a putz.
| MulberryPicking chapter 9 . 5/11/2021
Yeah, whenever I read this I have trouble seeing how it would ever be good or healthy for her to get back with Ron. This chapter & the previous are why. Yes, he is justifiably angry, and not in the best emotional health from recent events. But he takes her agency away, and he is nasty with her. That kind of nastiness will come back at the worst times in a relationship. (Anyway, team-eventual-Marcus)

I love this story, love your writing. The only thing I didn't love is that I'm completely against Hermione ending up with Ron, lol! I really liked the way you write Marcus Flint - here and in other stories of yours - and how you humanize him - along with many other Slytherins. There's so much to their story that doesn't get taken into consideration, as far as family loyalties and expectations. So their too often untold stories color the way they appear in canon and, often, fanfic. Your ending is just maddening. I mean that in how Harry totally got handed his way because of who he was, not because of the rightness or wrongness of things. But I could see that totally happening in the wizarding world, for exactly the reasons Hermione points out. So really, it's the perfect resolution for the marriage law. And hit me like a ton of bricks (hence the 'maddening' comment). Love the wizarding world, hate the business-as-usual corruption. And kind of hate how Harry doesn't get why Hermione and her crew aren't celebrating. Totally Harry!
Anyway, thanks for a really great read, the kind that stirs up emotions! 3

Rereading this for the second time (that makes three overall) I'm thinking if this isn't the most beautiful piece you have written? I mean right here, the beginning of chap 7, the funeral, the picture of Hermione dropping the pensive orbs in her parent's grave? I know that feeling so well that it hurts, just having buried my mother as the last of her generation, the last one but me remembering my own childhood, sitting here with her photograph albums and the memories of memories not mine anymore, now she isn't here anymore to tell me about them...
Wooff, when you are at your best, you are good!
| Swa-Sa Masou chapter 23 . 12/28/2019
I've totally read this before- I must have skipped what younger-me considered exposition chapters.
I apologize for that!
I'm reading it chapter-by-chapter this time!
| Swa-Sa Masou chapter 18 . 12/28/2019
This specific chapter seems so familiar, but I don't recall reading the previous 17.
Also, I think that was in a Dramione fic.
Too much time on this site over too many years does weird things to a girl's memory of plots!
Still enjoying this!
| Swa-Sa Masou chapter 10 . 12/28/2019
I'm loving this so far- but I'm hoping there's a reconciliation between Hermione and Ginny! I love the conversations and closeness between the two in the books and in much of the fanfic I've read. If you don't have them reconcile, I understand. It makes sense after Ron's broken heart that Ginny would side with him.
I'm interested to see where along the way they both realize they have actual feelings for each other!

I'm so happy there is an alternative ending. Weasley's were such terrible, egotistical personnes in that story, I haven't yet digest Ginny tantrum and her marrying Harry ...i'll just pretend I haven't read this chapter!
Really, after such a beautiful story between Marcus and Hermione thank for the other fanfic (the only epilogue as far as I'm concerned )
| Angie106 chapter 40 . 11/17/2019
what happened to Marcus?!
| Angie106 chapter 28 . 11/17/2019
Ginny is another selfish person in this story...
| Angie106 chapter 21 . 11/17/2019
the bloody duo are selfish gits.
| Romily chapter 40 . 10/1/2019
Not the pairing i hoped for for a happily ever after
| SophisticatedSage chapter 40 . 9/29/2019
| ForksintheRoad chapter 4 . 9/5/2019
This is my favorite chapter, not because it is happy, but because it is so well written. It makes me cry every time.
| Atrumnex chapter 40 . 8/25/2019
I'm hoping this has a sequel or something cuz I love Marcus
