i wish i had known in that first minute we met the unpayable debt that i owed you  
Unlike A Sister by Michelle AD

have i pimped this already? it's a WIP. WAAAAAAAH??? I KNOW! i never participate in reading WIPs cos it leaves me bereft and wanting and feeling abandoned but hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng YOU GUYS! this is so full of post-war angst and fluff and anticipationandsexinessandtensionandLONGING. Harry is full of longing without the typical man!pain tropes because this Harry is a mature and adult Harry with cognitive reasoning and maturity and rationality and jealousy. and he's grown up but now grown into who he is or is meant to be for himself but he isn't and it. is. frustrating. and evol and the slow disintegration of marriage and they're clinging on to what they feel is right because the kids are The Kids and they fall on their swords. every. single. time. (except for that part where they makeout with each other cos they can't help the pull) and shouldn't they? shouldn't they fall on their swords? it is what heroes do after all. it's what righteous heroes do. or maybe i've been listening to Ohbijou and Antlers a bit too much? yeah? maybe? maybe. slay me seven ways to eternity.

I'm not a fan of adultery in my stories but it *sounds* from what you're saying - "clinging on to what they feel is right", "they fall on their swords. every. single. time" - that this is a safe story for me to read?

I'll give it a gander, thanks for the recommendation!

Normally I hate those stories too but this is the first time in the history of ever that I've wanted two characters to commit adultery cos it'd be the right thing to do. LOL. Oh god that sounds fucked up and illogical but... *tears* MY KIDS. OH, I cannot. I shipped them before I even knew them and canon just shreds my heart. The great thing about this fic is that they fight it so valiantly and it's completely gut wrenching and heart breaky and such a 'them' thing to do.

tl;dr: I'm GLAD you're giving it a go!

I generally can't stay away from good fic even if it is a WIP. What can I say, I like to torture myself. I read this last night, and OMG IT IS AWESOME! I want a new chapter so freaking bad, but it doesn't look like the the author is a regular updater : / Oh well, it'll be one of those pleasant little surprises when she does.
