** Also featured with the romance between Female Shepard and Garrus Vakarian, particularly in [=ME3=]. No matter what Shepard's done, [[spoiler: such as bringing on the destruction of the quarian race or sabotaging the genophage cure,]] Garrus will still support and care for you. Heck, even when you ''break up with him'' he's totally understanding and remains warm to you when most people would "get in the skycar and leave".

* ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]'' plays it straight to an extent. When Mary Jane Watson's boyfriend Randy Robertson finds out that she's secretly a web-slinging superheroine, he's not so much upset by the fact that she's a superhero as the fact that she originally wouldn't tell him the truth about it. What ''really'' pisses him off, though, is when he learns that her ArchEnemy Jack O' Lantern knows her real identity.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8751000/1/Guardian-of-Light Guardian of Light]]'', the main character Helen [[spoiler: discovers that Pitch is her father]]. Jack isn't her boyfriend [[spoiler: at this point]], but he doesn't hold this against her despite everything, and is willing to protect her at all costs.

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] (although this may be a retrospective way of seeing it) in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. Leo seems to be accepting of all the weird things Zoë tells about happening to her - but it turns out that was only because he thought she was lying. In the words of another jerk he hangs out with, "You've got to respect a girl who realizes romantic relationships are based on lies and goes to town with it!" As soon as Leo finds out it was all true, he feels betrayed, and they eventually break off.

So what now? How will he react? Well, it turns out he's [[MilhollandRelationshipMoment perfectly okay with it]] (well, for the most part) and completely understands. That's right, as a reward for your sacrifices, the PowersThatBe will make sure that you end up with a truly noble and loving soul who loves you for who you are and doesn't care what you are. So no worries! And besides, he might have been in the same boat as you.
