Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Ibskib
Review:
Oh well, it would be a lot more entertaining if she had found a way to abolish that law for all the other girls now and in the future who are forced to marry, I can never really enjoy marriage law fics were they just go along with it, doesn't seem very heroic to me.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Starfox
Review:
Nice loophole, but - Buffy could slay the law. Or the idiots who try to force such laws on people. I never really understand why anyone would think the bunch of spineless sheep making up the Wizengamot would be able to force people like Harry, Hermione, and other heroes of the war, much less Buffy, to marry anyone. Such a law is clearly evil (it's rape), which makes its creators fair game for slaying.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ephiny
Review:
I love this story. I've always believed that Connor and Dawn were Buffy and Angel's kids. It made for a better story. The only reason I gave it a 9 instead of a 10 was because it ain't long enough. I think that you could make it a lot longer and it would be a lot better, but it was very good.

Glad you you enjoy it, sorry I couldn't think of anything else to add to this.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from obscure
Review:
Marriage law fics are something I have always detested, mainly due to the characters habit of just accepting it, which for someone like Buffy, or Willow, in the Buffy universe, (or in the Harry Potter universe a character like Hermione just blindly accepting it) seems utterly ridiculous. Although I enjoyed the subversion, I think I prefer the concept of them telling the British Ministry to 'go to hell' or something to similar effect seems more in keeping with the characters, or subverting it to an extreme marrying Ginny (the law specify's pureblood its not Buffy's fault they failed to specify Gender).

Really you don't think the a Scooby way of handling things by B.S'ing your way through the laws and using technicalities? Besides who says that Angel would stay, it would just be legally they were married. Kind of a nah nah thing.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from WolfWriter
Review:
You're forgetting that AS her adopted father, Giles can loathe Angel as much as he pleases. What father DOESN'T hate his daughter's boyfriend/husband?

He can play nice in front of Buffy, of course, but in private, he can hate the doofus as much as he wants and no one can say 'Boo!' about it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from khaos
Review:
An interesting but unrealistic way to deal with the situation. Buffy could simply go back to the US, who's going to force her to marry there, no country is going to accept a foreign power operating on their territory. If that doesn't work she could seek political asylum in Germany, France, Italy... any country where forced weddings are prohibited. If that still doesn't work the Watcher's Council is an important force in the supernatural world, it could use its influence, maybe by not extending its protection against vampires to wizards. Not to mention that Giles is both a citizen of magical and muggle Britain, he is probably on first name basis with the PM and the Queen, the wizarding world making laws harming normal citizens is not going to turn well for them. Likewise imposing absurd British laws to American citizens is not going to sit well, what happens when the US wizarding gvt decides to cut ties with the British Ministry?

Sorry for my rant, but when reading the summary I was really hoping for a marriage law fic that did not end up with a marriage.
Comments from author:
That's okay this is mainly my own personal jab at the challenge that the scoobs for some reason decide not to fight the law and suddenly find their true love after two chapters and by the 4th are jumping into bed with the person. This way she technically avoided the marrying aspect. Besides who says they have to stay together why can't Angel leave town the next day after the court show? Its just that technically they're married by the old magic laws.

Review:
Ok this is a 10/10. Not a fan of Buffy and Angel but this so works and it is funny as hell. Love to seem more with them trying to force the others into weddings lol.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from spk
Review:
Loved it! Great job! My only issue was that you basically explained the whole story in your A/N at the beginning, so there was no surprise to it. Still, I enjoyed it. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
I've always thought that there wasn't a whole lot wrong with the HP-verse Wizarding World that couldn't be solved with the application of several small tactical nuclear bombs. Their behavior here certainly confirms my genenal opinion of them...
