Beth H is long-time fanfiction writer who wrote in due South fandom from 2000 until somewhere between 2004 and 2006.[1] As of 2014 her most recent works on the AO3 were MCU and Harry Potter. In Due South fandom, she wrote mostly Fraser/Kowalski slash. In ds_profiles, mergatrude says: "Beth writes with a deliciously light sense of humour and an obvious love of her characters. She revels in the whackiness of due South and makes it seem entirely plausible." [2]

Notable Works

due South

  • Like a House on Fire, co-written with Kellie Matthews (Fraser/Kowalski, NC-17, 92,688 words). Fraser and Ray have moved on with their lives post-Quest, but once they're back together they're the old duet.
  • If It Walks Like A Duck… (Fraser/Kowalski, NC-17, 27,718 words). This is a great misunderstanding story. While the boys are hankering for each other, too afraid to say anything, an old friend of Ray's just assumes they are together.
  • Unplanned (Fraser/Kowalski, PG, 3114 words). They're really just like an old married couple!
  • Internal Affairs
