Review for Harry Potter and the Marriage Contracts

And another thing. Harry and Hermione are a bad couple too. Shock! Their mental injuries from their childhoods are too traumatic for them to be able to live together. Its been said that Harry wants a family, and maybe he does, but that's not what he needs. He needs PTSD therapy, with war veterans and a seriously talented mental health counselor. Only after his head is straight should he entertain taking a wife. The Harry in this story is OOC, its true, but this isn't a serious story. Its a light romance and some humor. The real Harry would be physically injured, shell shocked, and probably hospitalized after fighting Voldy to death. He wouldn't be in school chumming it up in good humor and mocking Dumbles for kicks. In this context, OOC is fine. This Harry is mentally healthy, and Ron is his usual self, an idiot.
Hermione has been deceiving herself, just as Ginny has, convincing herself she'll be happy if she attaches herself to one of her friends because she's aware of the loneliness which is looming with graduation. Hermione has alienated the wizarding world by the wrong blood and being too damned smart, and rubbing it in everyone's noses for 7 years. She's the kind of girl to get Nobel prizes and go on book tours and TV to keep rubbing people's noses in it and wonder why she doesn't quite get the respect she's after. In her way she envies Harry. But its a different envy from Ron or Ginny. At least she knows Harry, and in most stories she doesn't play for him because the smart part of her knows it would hurt them both. Hermione isn't suited for relationships because she hasn't figured out people enough to get along with them. Until she learns psychology and human dynamics, she's going to be alone. That's her reality. Books and knowledge are a crutch for her problems with people.
AU Post OotP, No HBP, With Voldemort gone it's time for Harry to Live.
