Reactions and Reviews
[reviewed along with A Little Voodoo]: This was one of the first stories I stumbled on at the hexwood archive (otherwise just know as the Due South archive if I've confused you, check my links page it's there). I really liked it, I'm fascinated by parallel worlds. The prospect of our lives turning out differently and yet we end up with the same people somehow. How even though things change, in some ways they are the same. This is what these stories are about, things happening in a divergent manner and yet, ending up with the same people playing the parts. Of course, Fraser and Kowalski are together, I wouldn't have it any other way. The characterizations are good and I like the element that shows in the second story that we can try to drastically change who we are, but our intrinsic selves will reemerge given a change. You can't be anything, but who you are. Fraser is quite different in the first one, or trying to be. His true self shines through in the second one though, he can't help it. Who would want him to? We can shut ourselves off from who we are as protection from getting hurt, but we want to be that so badly, it can't be hidden or stopped. I love this AU, almost forgot to rec it, shame on me. Oh, I also love the idea of Fraser in drag. If that didn't get you I don't know what will.
