Catching up -- haven't been in a DS mood for a long time, and there's so many great stories I've missed.

And this just killed me. The turtle died, and Ray dropping the basket, and Fraser thinking a clean break would be less painful -- and there's nothing so moving as hearing Fraser say, "I need," because you know how hard that is for him ...

oh, this is just beautiful. i held my breath the whole time i was reading.

also, now i can't get the magnetic fields song out of my head...
I will stay if you let me stay
and I'll go if you let go
but I won't go far away
because you're my only home

got here via rispacooper's rec. there is so much in the words, and even so much more in the words they didn't say. this story is full of everything a reader needs and wants from these guys, i'm completely in awe of how you pull it off so (seemingly) effortlessly and gracefully..
thank you for sharing this beautiful piece!

Wow. This really is an amazing story. So richly detailed and nuanced, and what an original turn with Beth. And painful, and bleak, and then comes the light. Wonderful.

Oh, yay for crack van recommendations; I've somehow missed reading this, vigilant as I've been about reading transects across the fandom. This is as jam-packed a piece of short fiction as I've read in due South, and that's saying a whole lot.

Julia, yowza

Back for a reread. I love this story. THey are both so very, very desperate.

That was amazing.
Oh, so that's puce.: ray's armmijmeraar on December 9th, 2009 11:47 am (UTC)
Oh, man. I read this and tagged it for delicious quite a while ago, before I was as deep into due South as I am now, before I knew who Beth Botrelle was, and. I'm reading it again and I'm welling up. I have this, pit in my stomach, and I know they love each other but I know it hurts too, godgodgod.

A flister and I were talking about this the other day, that the ideal thing for them would to be together in Canada, and you have written every single reason why in this short fic. The sheer desperation Ray has for Fraser, not for someone, or anyone, for Fraser is why I OTP them so, so hard.

This is wonderful, everything it needs to be, even now, four years later, thank you thank you <3
