Reactions and Reviews
Well, the author dedicates this story, “This slashfic is for Ewan McGregor, at least,” and summarizes it with the words, “Wherein first names are revealed and used; Ray comes in Canadians and goes to Canada; and Diefenbaker makes three new Scottish friends, however reluctantly.”
Despite the breezy tone of the synopsis this is a long, sometimes painful story in which none of the relationships come easily. There’s a lot of yearning, jealousy, fear, and heartbreak, especially for Turnbull, whose history is a match for Fraser’s and Ray’s, i.e. full of parental estrangement and romantic calamity. Furthermore, the problems don’t magically disappear when the characters take one another to bed; instead, they’re forced to confront new issues: When somebody leaves you, can you be with someone new without forcing him into the role of the one who’s gone? Can you ever have parity in a relationship with someone you consider your superior?Fortunately, there is also humor, kindness, bravery, friendship, and, yes, extremely hot sex.
