Reactions and Reviews

This is another newish fic, only a few months old. As you can see from the pairings this one has some het to it, a good bit, Frannie/RayK. I'm usually not to big on het, but I really enjoyed this one. She really made the pairing work for me. Mainly, because it's about two lonely people reaching out to one another for a night. I like the way the story of how they got together unfolds. It's not romantic, but you can see that Frannie and Ray care for one another. Though the story revolves around this one night Frannie and RayK spent together Fraser is always there. Like a spector in both of their hearts. Only one of them actually managed to win Fraser's heart though. Ray just has to be brave enough to go and seek Fraser back out. This is a lovely story with lots of layers. Love found in unexpected ways. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. [1]

Due South, and I'm afraid I need to err on the side of caution here, even to the extent of not giving y'all pairing information. See, Dira's style is so closely tied to the slow reveal these days that I feel guilty even mentioning that this is a kidfic, because I'm afraid I'm destroying some part of the essential experience of reading it. But, well, this story does belong in this set, as Frannie has a baby, after all - a baby who is probably made mostly of orange juice, actually. And I don't want to wait the slow eternity it will take me to assemble another surprise set. So I'm sort of going with the worst of both methods of recommending - I'm putting the story here, but not saying much about it. But, hey, did I mention that there's a kid in this? In the GTO, even, which shows the sincere importance of the kid in question. There's also a gradual build to a very happy ending (which I, for the record, consider to be absolutely mandatory in kidfic). Mostly I love this one for the sheer plausibility of it; I mean, I love improbable dS fic as much as the next raving Mountie-and-cop-fixated loon; our canon welcomes improbability with open arms, after all, so why shouldn't I? But still, I love the realism here; I read it thinking hey, yeah, that could happen, and that's a great feeling, especially when the ending puts god in his heaven and everything right with the world. Bonus: after you read this, you'll be able to dress like a Canadian. Only with less emphasis on the flannel and ear flaps, I would hope. [2]
