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."
- Could, Would, Will ( Fraser/Vecchio) An aching meditation on Fraser's aloneness, on his aloofness.
- Bugs and Thorns. (Fraser/Kowalski) Ray applies his skills and detects Canadian flirting.
- Chopsticks and Curling. (Kowalski/Turnbull) Fraser is heterosexual, but Turnbull isn't. This is a lovely take on RayK/Turnbull.
- Indecorous. (Sherlock/John/Mary) Developing poly relationship longfic.
