    Typical MC fics involve "Oh my gerd! We're betrothed! I guess we have to go through with it. Twu lerv."

    What I'm looking for is something along the lines of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Where they actively try to kill each other, in overly insane ways, so they don't have to get married. It would be good for a longish one shot if nothing else.

    Why hasn't someone done that before? That sounds awesome.

    I can't give you a fic, but I can give you a plot bunny I had:

    Essentially, back in sixth year, Pansy tricked Harry into signing a marriage contract by playing the "I'm just a poor, abused Slytherin girl who just wants to escape my Death Eater family and join your side" card, leading to a whirlwind romance where Harry, thinking with his dick, signs a marriage contract so that he can have sex with her. The moment the ink was on the page she reveals the ruse: she never cared for him, she just wants to inherit his money when Voldemort inevitably kills him.

    Unfortunately for Pansy, Harry beat Voldemort and now the two of them are stuck together. The fic opens post-Hogwarts and follows Harry and Pansy as they each try to make each other's life so miserable that they ask for a divorce (the party requesting the divorce loses the cash). To feature both of them trying to sleep around and constantly cock blocking each other. Sexual tension mounts as neither of them are getting any, and Pansy is teasing Harry to try to break him.

    I wouldn't want to play the fic as a straight-up romance because that's not the point, but the idea is for the two of them to develop a kind of camaraderie based on this competition they have going between them, and ultimately end up quite comfortable with each other.

    I’d rather them just try to kill each other. Maybe a scene where one of their friends tries to help out... It's a Pansy and Harry Contract. They're fighting, wands blazing. Chunks of the castle walls, Mrs. Norris, a house elf, and what appears to be half of Dumbledore's beard flying everywhere. Then Draco pops up to help Pansy. Harry and Pansy turn on him and blast him away, because only they can kill each other. They each pissed the other off that much.

    Just mindless violence. I'm a very simple person.

    Seems like you're on the cusp of writing it yourself, tbh. I say go for it.

    I'm simple, but I'm also kinda involved in other things. That's why I was looking for something that had already been written. Alas...

    @Taure: if you want to watch that plotline, What Happens in Vegas is literally that with Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz.
