DS Rec List  
As it seems to be my way, I've been putting together a Due South rec list. There is sure to be plenty more to come, but for now, here's what I've got, over at my Dreamwidth journal (which has kind of become my fic rec journal):

due South: Fraser/Ray K fic rec list.

That doesn't even include all the fics I've bookmarked as being awesome over the last several months. I love the DS fandom- so, so much good stuff.

Oooh. So the real question is, if I've never watched any Due South, which ones should I read?

Heh, well, I highly recommend you watch some Due South, as it is adorable and sweet and fun and totally insane. It's very easy to just jump in most of the time, as it's not a big arc sort of show.

It looks like someone put the pilot episode up here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mDOyeR7mB (It's two hours long but made of awesome).

Fraser, the mountie, has two different Chicago cops named Ray that he works with. The first Ray, Ray Vecchio, is a lot of fun, but it's the second Ray, Ray Kowalski, who he has the super slashy relationship with (hand holding, buddy breathing, riding off into the sunset on a dogsled together...)

(Here's a two minute fanvideo about their slashiness: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBNuFiAFWUc)

But if you want to read fic without having seen any episodes, hmm... probably any of the long ones would be ok- more details in the long ones. Speranza's stuff is really good... I dunno. I didn't read the fic until I'd seen a good portion of the show.

Why'd I expect that that's what you'd recommend? I'm going to try and watch some over Xmas break (I tend to go obsessive when I start new shows, so I need to make sure I have the time to inhale at least the first season...)

Hehe, I understand. It's definitely addictive, so Christmas would be a good time. :D
