    Summary

    You see– Clarke, by all means, shouldn’t exist. Everyone in her family, for as far back as they can trace, has been either an Alpha or an Omega. Never has a mere Beta sprouted on their family tree. Her Uncle Russell even insisted on a paternity test when she turned eighteen and still hadn’t presented as either, much to Abby’s unending embarrassment. All of them go on and on about it. How dare she spit on their pedigree like this!

    Of course that embarrassment is Clarke's fault, it's her personal defect that keeps her from presenting.

    ***

    Clarke is the only Beta in her strictly Alpha/Omega family and pack in a world where A/Os are considered the cream of the crop. She's been just about shunned, yet is still expected to come home for Christmas to endure her Mother's disappointment, her snotty cousin's bullying, and her Uncle's-- and pack Alpha's-- distain.

    So what happens when her roommate's asshole older brother-- who's also kind of her rival-- offers to pretend to be her Alpha boyfriend so she can stick one to her family for once?

    And what if his motives aren't anywhere near pure?

    Summary

    i.

    The thing is - he keeps trying to leave.

    He tries to slip out of the wedding without her noticing. He says goodbye to Luke and Lorelai, kisses his mom’s cheek, wraps up some of the best cake for the road, and is halfway through his shitty car door when he feels an unmistakably small hand on his shoulder.

    “I wasn’t sneaking out,” he says, and he should’ve gotten over this, this embarrassment and shyness and palm-sweating. These are distinctly teenage things.

    “Could’ve fooled me,” she quips back, but there’s really no venom in it. She looks nice, in a blue dress and gently curled hair. She always looks nice.

    “You’ve got my number.”

    “I put the snake emoji next to your contact.”

    “You’ve got my address.”

    “It is in fact saved with your number.”

    Summary

    She wore that Granger expression, the one that said she was going to bully someone into something. Draco had a bad feeling it was about to be him. “I’ll marry you,” Hermione said.

    “Don’t be ridiculous.”

    “I’m not doing it for free. I marry you, then after a year we divorce and you agree to fund S.P.E.A.M.B. In perpetuity.”

    “Out of the question.”

    “It’s just one year. We would both get what we want.”

    “Contracted marriages require consummation,” he said, adding a leer for good measure.

    Granger had gotten more attractive since their Hogwarts days, he would give her that much. Her jumper was atrocious, though. He had half a mind to burn it.

    To his everlasting shock, she merely shrugged. “It’s just sex. I’ve had it before and I presume you have too.”

    She was utterly serious. Draco stared at her and contemplated being married to her. She was irritating and he might make her promise to never wear that jumper again, but it was better than the alternative.

    Draco would do just about anything to avoid being poor.

    “You’re serious?”

    “Completely.”

    “Then congratulations, Granger. You've got yourself a husband.”

    Summary

    I know this a long shot but I’m looking for a fic that I think was called called Picking Up What You’re Laying Down by verbaepulchellae.
    I think I might have seen someone comment recently that they had a copy of it saved before it was removed from ao3 and would love to read!
