I agree with your choice. Ruth would not get over something like this so easily.
How many of us have ever seen our boss have sex with another at work. And if he or she had a history of adultery, plus ongoing affairs s/he would be thought of just as Ruth sees Harry , if not worse.

He's disgusting. Hope Ruth moves on. What a laugh, ' I love u even though I'll have sex with another AND let discover it.
Not to mention while at work...

I think in a situation like this, a phone rant is quite polite of Ruth! At least she didn't go all Vickie Westbrook on him and have cards printed up that say On Her Majesty's Sexy Service and then hang them in sex shops all over town, not that Ruth really would ever do something like that.

""Some goodbye that was," Ruth muttered darkly"
- Insert here some form of half-knowing, half-evil laugh...
| Tentative Steps chapter 4 . 8/27/2010
"Opening the door, she wasn't prepared for what she was about to see. Harry had fallen asleep on her door step."
- Well. That was a giggle!

Argh argh argh argh, nothing like a little AU to keep you on your toes!

I'm about 70-something fics behind, so forgive me for reviewing it all in one chapter.
I like it when people take a different storyline - well done! It's good to see Harry's darker side explored. I always think that there is very little you can't make a character do provided you give just cause and explanation. Our Spooks characters are all human after all. Yes, he wouldn't do that on the show but you've acknowledged that and put this situation into context for us :)
I agree that, after that way you pitched the story, you were right to not have Ruth forgive Harry so easily in Ch11. That's not to say it shouldn't or couldn't be done by any means - but you made the right decision in this context.
All in all, an interesting read to give a different take on some HR anger. Thanks!
ps: check for missing words ;)

Oh wow, you moved me to tears.
I agree, you should leave it there. Ruth's POV was just perfect.
Definitely do a sequel though :D
| Novindalf chapter 11 . 5/3/2010
Well I would have said continue this here, but it looks like you've already made your decision.

I also had to turn my face away: so that my parents didn't see my silent tears. This was a beautiful, emotionally charged chapter: heartbreaking yet beautiful. Despite always wanting them to have a happy ending, I agree that it wouldn't be right for her just to completely forgive him.
I think that this is the right place to end this fic, but if you were to do a sequel it could explore how they slowly begin to regain their trust and move forward, hopefully towards some sort of stability.

idea for the follow on
harry disappears and hits the bottle and ruth is the only one that can save him and she forgives him
| Forever. Ruth chapter 11 . 5/1/2010
What an emotionally charged chapter - I have to agree with TheCAO and FluffySpook ending the fic here is the way to go... While it would be a challenge to write, I would very much like to see a sequel of how they move on from here - to see what steps Harry would take to try to regain the trust that was lost - and whether Ruth will let him...
| FluffySpook chapter 11 . 5/1/2010
You're right, Ruth wouldn't just let this pass over - you've hit the nail on the head writing this chapter. I actually feel awful inside, because this is so life like and could easily make a real episode. Really heartfelt stuff here.
(Sorry I've taken so long to review by the way.)
| Symphony In Blue chapter 11 . 5/1/2010
It'll break my heart and that of many others if you leave it like this. This really is one of the saddest Ruth/Harry things I've ever read! But of course it's your story, so it's for you to decide whether to continue or not.
