When one had known a friend since they were in short pants there was little secrecy in the friendship. Felton and Miles knew everything about one another and were brothers in all but blood. After all the general inquiries had been satisfied Felton drew closer and dropped his voice. “Barrington, I’m not entirely sure how to tell you this, but Ezra Harcourt is in a bad way. He might not make the winter.”

“Thorne, I,” Miles began, but could scarce draw breath. Surely Felton had to be exaggerating or he had gotten the news wrong somehow. “Tell me everything.”

Miles Barrington was not going to let Ezra Harcourt put himself into an early grave, even if he has to marry the man.

“Ain’t no such thing as marriage paperwork on rim planets, Mister Lawyer,” he shakes his head. “Paper is too damn precious to waste on putting down words about somethin’ you can just go and tell people about when they ask.”

The lawyer narrows his eyes, clearly alarmed at the notion of an improperly documented marital union.

“So …” he says slowly. “Are you saying that … uhm … where you are from, there is no official ritual to seal a marriage bond?”

“There’s a ritual alright,” Jayne grins. “Just don’t involve no paperwork.”

“I have an idea, actually,” Su Zhe said. “Though I’m not sure if your highness will think it is too bold or indiscreet.”

Su Zhe’s plan, as it turned out, was for the two of them to get married.

There were a couple things addressed to him, which Shouta set aside to look at later – chances they were something sent to him by the precinct – and then Shouta got to the bottom of the pile.

Just a simple manila envelope with sticky note on it that said “Yamada-Aizawa”.

Shouta frowned at it, picking it up. It didn't look like something sent through the mail. He sighed, carefully picking the envelope open and preparing himself to call up either Hizashi or Tsukauchi. The little metal tabs bent back with no trouble and he tipped the contents out into his hands. Paper, which he assumes is better than pictures of questionable origins - at least, it's better until he reads what the papers say.

But Barney has caught wind of him again, and even the Black Widow can’t protect him from the powerful crime syndicate that is after him now. Clint needs a place to lie low, somewhere so far away from Earth that his enemies can’t find him. So Natasha suggests that he consider the benefits of an arranged marriage on a faraway planet.

It seems like a mutually beneficial arrangement. But can two independent men move past their secrets and build a real life together?

Not Part of the Plan - Annie D (scaramouche) - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
Castiel's spent most of his adult life keeping his head down and staying out of trouble. This is a deliberate choice on his part, because as a cousin of the King, he'd rather stay unimportant and forgotten. This changes abruptly when King Michael decides that he has a better use for Castiel: he is to be wed to a noble member of the neighboring Republic, as part of an agreement between their two nations.

Castiel knows he has to obey, but that doesn't mean he won't rebel in what small ways he can. Unexpectedly, his actions end up having far-reaching consequences.

Mike isn't entirely certain how he let Donna and Jessica talk him into marrying Harvey while his boss was in a coma, even if they swore he wouldn't mind. He thought the hardest part would be going to the hospital and confronting the sight of his boss and friend lying there, but instead it turned out to be confronting his growing feelings for a man he'd never imagined seeing in a romantic light. Harvey's just glad he woke up from his coma, and trying to not be too upset that he's now married to the Associate he's had a crush on for over a year.
