Reactions and Reviews
Every time I look at this, I think "I'll just read a little bit", and then get sucked in and have to re-read the entire thing again. The characterization is fantastic, the voices are spot-on, the plot and subplots are fun, and the secondary characters and OCs are perfect. Ray in this is a Ray-ish delight, full of snark and attitude even as he half-kills himself to do whatever is necessary to be there for his friend, even if it means teaming up with the Dragon Lady. Thatcher is totally Thatcher -- and sympathetic. And Fraser bends without breaking. The story does what the show manages so well: taking something serious and blending it with humor. There's nothing funny about the main storyline here, but you'll grin, and sometimes giggle, your way through it anyway.
