Author's Note: Infidelity is normally not a big kink of mine, but I got this little idea in my head and it would not leave me alone until I wrote it. Lots of love to capitu and alley_skywalker for the hand holding and beta. You guys are awesome!

Read on AO3

This was an interesting one for me, because infidelity is, generally speaking, a major dislike for me. In fact, it becomes a pretty big squick when it involves my OTP cheating on one-another....which is exactly what I wrote.

H/D and James/Teddy are my two *big* HP ships, so it was a bit weird to be struck by such an urgent plot bunny. But I found the whole thing strangely enjoyable. I think because I didn't delve into the aftermath at all, it worked out okay. And the fact that it was actually inspired by a completely unrelated fic I'm working on. So it's sort of an AU of an AU of that fic...

I debated for a while about potentially changing the pairings, maybe making their primary pairings het, or maybe having James be with Scorpius for extra dirty feels,. But, in the end, I figured I'd go with my initial bunny.

I was a little nervous about posting it, because I know infidelity is a pretty common squick, especially when it comes to H/D. I definitely knew it wouldn't be a super popular entry, but I was really happy with all of the really wonderful comments I got. :D

I'm with you about Infidelity. I have to be in a special mood to read it, but when it works, damn it works! :)

It's definitely a tricky thing! So I'm extra glad you were so awesome and took a look at this for me. <3

I'll admit to not having read it, infidelity being a part, certainly. But I wanted to say that sometimes it really is satisfying to write something different even when you know it may not be a blockbuster. So Kudos to you for going out on a limb! :)

Thanks, hon! It was definitely an idea that I wanted to see through, and I think knowing and accepting that it wasn't going to be a big hit really let me just have fun with it.

It's a very strange feeling though, writing something that you wouldn't normally read yourself.

It is. I do it a lot. I've argued with myself about whether I am some kind of hypocrite for refusing to read things when I've written similar. I can only say that the two things aren't really the same. I get a different kind of pleasure from writing, getting wrapped up in the storytelling. With reading, I'm looking for certain things and in some ways I'm more emotionally invested in the characters when I am reading for pleasure so it's harder to read things I don't like. Anyway, trust me, I do know what that's like. I try not to worry about it anymore and just do what makes me happy.
