"Marriage Law" parody. A speech by Minister for Magic "Iron Molly" Weasley and a visit from McGonagall wreck Snape's comfortable life as an outlaw in hiding.
- -snicker- -chuckle- -guffaw- OMFG, that's hilarious throughout!!! I could almost feel sorry for Severus under these circumstances, but he's getting the best possible choices in his situation. I doubt he ever expected Iron Molly to play this kind of game but I suspect that, in the end, he'll find it for the best (or at least good for him to accept it that way, I wouldn't want either of those ladies unhappy with me).
- Oh, BTW, I really think that one of them should be reading that classic wizarding crime novel by Snappdove, "The Case of the Toxic Spell Dump". The actual novel in OTL is enjoyable as is, and if you're fairly familiar with LA, esp. the west end of the San Fernando Valley, there're some downright hilarious bits (co-incidentally, Turtledove lives at the very west end of the San Fernando Valley - in OTL, the location he gives for the bad guys' plant is occuppied by Rocketdyne and was previously owned by General Atomics when both were North American subsidiaries spun from the same missile program, Navaho). As you may gather, I rather enjoy Harry Turtledove's works, too.
