Summary: After Voldemort’s defeat, and in order to keep control of Harry Dumbledore enacts a marriage contract between Harry and Ginny. Bound by Pureblood Traditions, Harry can only use that to his advantage. Not a Harry/Ginny fic. Pre Slash.
Why You Should Read This: This is a take on Ginny’s dreams of marrying the Boy-Who-Lived come true, but the life she imagined and what really happens? Not the same thing at all! With help from Dumbledore an old Tradition gets used, with results that aren’t entirely expected! Help for Harry comes from an unexpected quarter, but it works out nicely. If you don’t care for Dumblebore &/or select Weasleys, this is a interesting story to read. Starts off as Harry/Ginny, and ends as happily and very much slash-fic for all!
