Writing style

exbex says about Sionnain's due South writing:

"One of her greatest strengths is in her ability to consistently and accurately capture the voice of the characters she’s writing, both in her use of dialogue and her story exposition. Sionnain’s stories are often sensual and sexual, with optimistic and happy endings, but she doesn’t shy away from writing angst." [1]

Notable Works

due South

  • Grocery Lists (Fraser/ Kowalski /Vecchio, PG-13, an image-heavy media-fic) Laugh out loud funny, this story also demonstrates Sionnain’s talent for voice, as the story is told entirely (and the characters portrayed completely accurately and cleverly) through a series of scrawled notes.
  • were no crime (Fraser/Vecchio, R, about 3000 words) - the romance develops so naturally from the friendship between Ray and Fraser, and the characters are so well-drawn, with Ray’s exasperation and Fraser’s uprightness. Also, nice use of setting; Chicago emerges almost as another character.

Battlestar Galactica

  • Unfettered (BSG, Leoben, Kara, PG, about 2000 words) That missing scene between Kara and Leoben in the series finale? Sionnain wrote it beautifully, capturing two of the show’s most tricky characters and providing some much-needed closure.


  • And Watch the Clock Ticking Slow (Last Night/Durham County, Patrick Wheeler and Sadie Sweeney, PG-13, about 3600 words) A brilliant blend of two very different fandoms, and a character study that’s wonderfully bittersweet.
