in Due South

Writing style

mergatrude feels Basingstoke's due South stories

"[…] all pack some kind of punch, whether it be serious, sexy or silly. She's a self-proclaimed non-romantic. The majority of her due South fics are Fraser/Vecchio, and they are unsentimental and usually heart-wrenching, though not without great comic touches. For her Fraser/Kowalski fics, well, 'romp' is the word that springs to mind. I like her Kowalski voice, and I like the way her Kowalski seems able to break Fraser out of whatever funk he's in."[1]
