I don't really like infidelity fics. For me, fanfictions, movies and all that are there as tools to forget real life and the whole sets of problem for a bit.

Infidelity is too close for comfort. I can't say that I can be faithful to my partner forever, because who knows what might happen in the future? I guess I'm not an optimist.

Back to infidelity snarry fics.
If it's Harry cheating with Snape, it's okay for my snarry side. :)

But if they're in a relationship and one of them cheats, even if it's meaningless (like Dracofiend's "Dalliance, A Convenience"), it still hurts.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. Which is why in fanfics, as well as in books/movies/anime etc, I always chose to read the happier/hopeful things.

While infidelity is something that happens everywhere and can be quite realistic (if written well of course) it is still something I would not like to read and will avoid if there is a warning, especially if it's within the snarry pairing.

If it's Harry cheating on Ginny (or Cho?)it might not bother me as much if they are not married yet etc but I do like Ginny and if there's a lot of Ginny bashing in the fic (or if she is generally portrayed as a bitch XD) I will not like it.

And err, I think that's all I have to say in the matter. Yeah.

:D
We're very different here.

My favorite HP character is Severus Snape, and I wanted to see him in a slash. So I looked for anyone who can... balance him out? Headstrong just like him. That's how I ended up as a Snarry fan. :D

Have you read the ones I listed? In all of them Harry is cheating on Ginny with Snape.

I've read "Being Snape", it's definitely a must read. Hm. Perhaps even an absolute must read. :D Wonder why I haven't put it on my bookmarks.

Seeing all these comments about "Sadness of Eros", I think that I have to find the right time and mood to read it. :)
I can't open the "Between the Lines" and I suppose I shouldn't read the companion fic before reading the main fic?

There's a fic where Snape went crazy because of Nagini's venom. He thought that he's married to Lily and has a son named Harry. I forgot what's the title or who wrote it, but it's also an excellent fic in this theme.

And have you read AbsoluteConcept and Dracofiend's "Those Who are Vigilant"?
