Lovely job! Not only does your essay show their love for one another -- we see your love for them, too, nice and clear.

Thank you, lynn!

Yay - I'm so glad I managed to get some of my enthusiasm across. Lord knows how I love these two!

(and thanks for the email. Trying to fix but having issues. Will try it again tomorrow)

*blows kisses*
Good work! Now I really have to rewatch my tapes, don't I? :)

(...and thanks for the rec! *g*)
Oh yes - you SO have to go rewatch your tapes!

(And no! Thank YOU for that wonderful storyl. One of my all time favorites by far *g*)
What a great essay! I was waiting with baited breath for this and it really lives up to my expectations. You've captured so much of their love and snark and irritation and attraction and devotion and hotness.

Thanks babe.

Oh, thank GOD it wasn't like, "I've been waiting for this? Feh."


So glad what I was trying to accomplish came across well. You're wonderful for letting me know!

*licks you back*
Now that was a fantastic essay. Wonderful job.
Aww, honey! You're so wonderful to say so!

Thanks SO much!

(so - are you ready for the hard core DS pimping estrella to come out and get you yet? *g*)
But when the cancellation really counted - when it was finally time for Benton Fraser to return to the Great White Nothing, he did it in style.

If ever a show loved its fans due South is it. Instead of trying to force feed us some het romance for our own good it followed its characters from courtship - a late night dinner in the first episode - to declaration - I love you, Fraser. / And I you, Ray. - to proprosal - We still partners? / If you'll have me. - to riding off into the horizon with each other. All involved should be richly rewarded just for that.

You'd probably have a harder time proving that these two guys aren't in love with each other than proving that they are...

Lol...My mind boggles at the math involved in trying to prove they don't love each other when it's so obvious that they do.

Really lovely essay. Makes me love them all over again.
Thank you! Your comments made me ssquee ever so much, so yay!

And yes, god, I just *love* these two. So glad you liked the essay and thanks again!
Very nice essay :)
Thank you! I can't wait to see yours!

One) I love this essay

Two) I love it even more that you wrote it in Due South style

Three)Paul Gross joins the list of Richard Burgi and Christopher Judge as guys who can have all my money and love forever.

Since I have not seen all of the last season yet. (DVDs in June of 2005! Eva is getting them for me from Canada! The waiting is killing me! **sobs**) Why are they holding hands in that icon of yours?

I love that half the slash fandoms are like, I dare you to tell me they aren't teh Gay. Now, if you will excuse me, the hell with this coherence, I'm going to go stare at the pretty pictures and maybe watch Call of the Wild again. [For only the sixth time ha!]
Yay! So glad you liked the essay *g*

Why are they holding hands in that icon of yours?

Because they're so very in love?


Ok. Actually, thats a scene from Odds and Fraser was on the ground and Ray pulls him up and they (swear to god) hold haands for a way long time while looking up at the roof of the building. A VERY long time *g* (Because - again - they're soinlove)

And yes, CotW is so very teh gay. Wonderful episode. Wonderful slash. Wonderful men *g*

Again - thank you!

Finally got around to reading this tonight - I was saving it for a quiet moment. *g* Fabulous summary of the relationship and the show, with great recs (and thanks for the quote! I said that? Really? Cool! :D )


It occurs to me now that I might have - oh, I don't know, *asked* you if I could quote you in this.


Sorry, L. I'm such a rude bitch sometimes *g*

(And thank you! And yes! You did say that in one of those 'what's the sexiest pairing? what's the most romantic pairing meme's a while back and it always stuck with me because of how true it is. Sigh. Next time though, I shall ask *g*)
Thanks to you and this essay, I was up until 4:30 this morning reading DS fic. I should feel really guilty about that. *grins*
I was up until 4:30 this morning reading DS fic


Oh shit. Is there something *wrong* with that?


Hee! Thank you, celli!
I love your essay...
I read most of the story you've rec...
And now I got more to read...

P.S. They are so together.
Oh yay! Thank you for reading and letting me know you liked the essay!

(And yes - gah! SO in love *g*)

Thanks again!
Wonderful essay, sweetie. I knew you could do it.

I love this pairing, it just is. I am a bit intimidated and in awe of the fandom. You all seem like such a tight knit group.

Thank you, doll. *felt tingly all over after reading this*
Thank you, spren!


And really, DS is a wonderful, wonderful fandom. You need to hang out more!

*crooks her finger and beckons you over*
I read this very quickly last week, and have finally gotten back to savouring it, saying "Yes!" emphatically, and nodding my head vigorously. Fabulously concise summary of what we all love. And that's why we all love you!

Oh yay! Thank you, M! Your comments made my day!

*snugs you*


Just, wow.

Nice job, honey.

Re: ...wow.

*smooches you hard*

Why thank ye, darlin *g*

Re: And They Lived Happily Ever After

…And they lived happily ever after.

And they do. See?

I can't think of anything to say except that this is absolute perfection, E. :)

Thank you so much for this.

Re: And They Lived Happily Ever After

hey, yms! I'm so sorry, I don't remember seeing this comment before!

thank you though, I really appreciate you're reading and commenting!
I know you posted this essay ages ago, but I've just now discovered due South and I can't tell you how very much I appreciate your essay and all the lovely links and recs. Thank you so much!
oh! I'm so very glad you found this and it's helpful for you! DS is the most wonderful fandom ever. Seriously. So good luck and have fun!

thank you again!
