Dramione Fanfictions Clichés. Gotta love them ^.^
Every once in a while I’ll go into the dramione tag for some fic recs and I’ll spot someone asking to help them find a certain fic they read but didn’t bookmark. They’ll describe it and it’ll be like:
And I really sympathize with them because I’ve been in the good ship dramione for over ten years. I want you to find your needle in the haystack.
This is probably a good time to stop the buzzfeed crawl.
In my old age I just want to be left alone to ship in peace. Hermione shipping wars were dead until it got frankensteined by Rowling. We’ve moved on to our crack ships, leave us be.
So someone definitely sat down and thought about magical contraception in the Harry Potter universe.
It’s really weird when Harry Potter characters call out Merlin’s name in the middle of sex in fanfiction. When did that become a thing, because I’m betting there’d be a portrait of the guy somewhere in the HP universe completely baffled by that.
I really find the trope of “marriage laws” in Harry Potter fan fiction highly improbable. (Yeah I’m looking at you dramione writers) It suggests that somehow Wizarding England exists solely in a vacuum where no other communites of magic exist when that simply isn’t true (did you skip through pretty much all of Goblet of Fire or did you forget about France and Bulgaria?). In the most popular scenarios, where ministry law mandates that pure bloods and muggle borns MUST marry and conceive, absolutely reeks of eugenic undertones that I can not take any of it seriously because it displays a clear lack of understanding of the non-magical themes within the novels (choice, freedom, autonomy etc).
I dislike strongly Marriage Law themed fics, especially when the AU is a post voldemort world in which he was defeated. I feel like it hides behind the guise of being mostly innocuous in the possibilty of it ending well for the two protagonists, by couching the language of abuse and control behind what is supposed to be perceived as a noble act on the part of the governing body.
Half the time the logic is there aren’t enough magic babies being born and fearing the possibilty of magical extinction purebloods must marry and bed muggle borns? Or because tensions post war are so high the ministry is forcing all unwed wizards and witches into marriages that have been predetermined for them? In a world where a jaded psychopath literally waged war against people who did not come from magical blood lines, in other words perpetrated genocide upon mixed wizards, muggle born wizards, and muggles, the next logical act must be to pass a marriage law to help calm everybody down?
I mean, just c’mon.

“Harry slammed his book shut. It wasn’t really a book, because the pages were made of lasers and the words were made of headless women making godless love to dragons made out of motorcycles, but it was still reading.”

J.K. Rowling’s charity giving knocks her off Forbes’ billionaires list
Author of the ‘Harry Potter’ series is no longer in the billionaires’ club — thanks to simply being an incredible person.
In this House, the traits associated with Taurus that will be most emphasized are materialism and loyalty. These Slytherins will be almost blindly loyal to their friends and allies, and they will value wealth and the trappings of wealth over more intangible assets. Determination will also be emphasized. All Slytherins are determined, but the stubborn Taurus Slytherin is unstoppable once they have their mind set on something. A large number of Slytheirns in this sign work for Gringotts after graduating from Hogwarts, for they are very good with money.
Haha, how fun.
Coincidentally, I was sorted into Slytherin for Pottermore, I think it’s because I chose the single black glove during the ceremony.
