Got a question for fanfiction writers/readers  
In setting up a new relationship and ending an old one, where is the line between realization and ship/char bashing?

What I mean is let’s say I’m writing a fic where C2 and C3 get together but it is set in a season where C1 and C2 are together. If C2 realizes the relationship is not working out, is trying to justify the breakup to themselves, where is the line where it is serving the story vs. bashing? Is there a line? (And feel free to link this so I get a variety of replies, not just from friends, though you all are A-MAH-ZING)

Also, anyone have some time to beta one maybe two 5 things fics for me this weekend, preferably someone who has a good Spike voice cause my Spike voice is lousy?

IMHO, as long as the above scenario is fairly clear in the fic and C2's thoughts are fair to both relationships - not harping only on the bad, but recognizing the good as well, I think you're okay. If it's appropriate, allowing C2 to have a little grief over the end of the C1-C2 relationship goes a long way, again IMHO.
