Reactions and Reviews
This is the fic that sold me on the threesome thing. It's a crazy, hurtful, mixed up thing, not easy or smooth for any one of them. You can see what Ray is aiming for, you can see what he wants, and you can see why it doesn't work. It's just - it hurts to read, but is tremendously well-done. 
A post-CotW story about a love triangle, it's hot and angsty and sweet and manly. RayK is believably non-reflective, doing his thing and not quite getting why RayV and Fraser have any problems with the situation. But I particularly like the Ray Vecchio in this story, so grounded and dependable. Fraser's reactions are in character, especially at the end. Give this one a try, even if Ray/Ray stories aren't your thing.
