due south - the hangover
children of dune - leto 1
seperis
*sprawled drunkenly across bed*

I have a Due South hangover. Actually, this reminds me of the time I was tripping in my best friend's not-boyfriend's dorm porch, where I had a long conversation with everyone regarding aspirin. It took several hours. There were also leaves involved and superhearing and later, a game of paintball with balls that had yellow tracks behind them. I also discovered that even knowing a wall existed was enough to set off my claustrophobia.

(weird. I was going somewhere with this. I have no idea where.)

In no particular order--I'm so not kidding, I feel wiped.

A.) Oh. *softly* So that's Kowalski.

I just had what appears to be an epiphany regarding Fraser's extremely narrow concept of who he's willing to become obsessed with. Wow. I--really did think people were exaggerating? But apparently no, no, you were not.

Jesus. Kowalski. I--no, later, when I don't feel vaguely drunk and blank eyed. Jesus.

B.) Season two--wow.

C.) Season three--Jesus Christ

D.) Season four or part two of season three--what the fuck? Really. Really?

E.) No, seriously. I'm in some kind of glowy post-finale--really? Seriously. Oh my God--and I seriously keep forgetting how to type.

Oh my God. Kowalski.

...okay, I'm sorry, but I was emotionally fragile after Victoria and now there's all this--I mean. Okay, stopping now before I forget English.

In further news, my first season discs were stolen by my mother, who has fallen hopelessly in love with Fraser and wants to marry him and have babies. I--nevermind. This is my family. She actually watched the first ep of season three first and got that terrifying fixated look that kind of told me I'll be rewatching everything again with her. I do not find this difficult to do, but I swore Child to silence (he who has stolen my season two discs) because if I had to cry through that, she's damn well going to have it hit her like a train. Family, share, blah blah blah. I am petty and vindictive and I'm going to cry again and that should be shared.

...I really feel like I hallucinated some of this. It's the weirdest sensation.

cesperanza -- I finished your webpage. Eventually I'll send feedback. That was--a lot of fic.


I seriously stumbled getting otu of bed and kept expecting to end up in snow.

That was like, the trippiest expereince of my life and that includes that damn acid trip becsue this one was like, twenty something hours long and involved, what appears to be, Fraser and Kowalski getting married on a mountain and I'm sorry, I'm not used to the text being explicit.

OMG, "Chicago's Most Wanted"!!!!

I mean, "Kowalski is Bleeding" is magnificent, as is "Scrabble" and well, you know, *every story there*, but CMW *pwned* me.

I loved that one and Eight Sessions. I think Eight Sessions was my favorite, but really, I'm not entirely sure of my own name right now, so could be anything.

God this is good stuff.

Nothing, nothing makes me grin and flail quite so much as Fraser and Kowalski.

I love Fraser and Vecchio, but I love Fraser and Kowalski for like, this entirely different set of reasons. And I swear Victoria's Secret is still influencing me so much, because I ended up trying to analyze Ray in light of that and it's just *strange*.

LOOK I JUST COULD NOT CONCEPTUALIZE OKAY? IT WAS LIKE EPIPHANY.

Yup. That's Kowalski. *massive grin of F/K-induced happy*

I had no idea it was like that.

*paws weakly at screen* Love.

I mean, head kicking! And MASSIVE woobiness! And deeply intense loyalty! And competence kink! And giant, soul-hurt places of emptiness and need that just VACUUM right together and STICK! *has to lie down*

Yeah, okay, when your eyeballs stop feeling sandpapered, there's, you know, *waves* pages of recs. You did start with the best. :-)

Head-kicking, kind of terrifying (seriously, he's freaking *scary* when either armed (all the time) or interrogating someone).

*flails at you* Oh, I love this! Because you've made me remember how much I love it too! And just, oh, Fraser abandonment issues OMG! Kowalski! BOOOYYFRIENDS!!!!

They set off. Together. Into the sunset. I--what the HELL did they think they were doing? It's practically canon. All that is missing from the screen is the actual buttsex.

Although I would not complain if there was more kissing. *looks thoughtful*

God, Mounty on the Bounty and Fraser's depression was just--and the thing with the "WE WILL BOTH TRANSFER" because for Ray, it's not enough not to work with Fraser--he has to make sure Fraser never dates works with anyone else.

I just--boggled at that. Because my God, Ray. Your issues, let me show you them. They might be familiar from earlier in the season? When you were kind of doing something similar with your ex-wife?

So in love. They just--so much. Wow.

OMG Lookit all the joy I have ahead of me as my Due South arrived today! Or I hope that it is - otherwise I have no idea as the note says my package-to-pick-up is from Jamaica of all places.

It sounds absolutely fabulous and I plan to completely devour dS this weekend. Oh yes. Drown my achy neck problem in boys and snow and doggie (or is that wolf?)

Have you seen it before??? Or first time?

I seriously feel like a junkie. I keep groping to rewatch eps.

I got into Due South after I saw a promo shot of Fraser and Kowalski. Kowalski? Day-AM! Have you read any of Speranza's Due South stories?

Ok, I am an idiot and should read to the end of your post before I start to squee. But yeah, I think that 8 Sessions was my favorite Speranza fic, too. Though Chicago's Most Wanted? Ooooohhhh....

Oh hell, you are making me want to buy the whole thing on DVD and watch again. I haven't seen dS since it aired on TV over here (UK). It's been YEARS. And I don't have TIME for another fandom.

*wonders how much it is at amazon*

ETA: Complete DVD set available brand-new via third-party merchant on amazon.co.uk for £15.42!!! (approx $30). Guess what I just bought! *g*

Due South is the best show ever made and the slash is, to this day, still the best, hottest, most realistic i have ever read. Also, i hate you a lot! Where did you get all the eps from? I've been searching on the net but can't find somebody to sell me the entire series!

I bought mine at Deep Discount (it arrived today!) for $27
http://www.deepdiscount.com/viewproduct.htm?productId=44713950
(Be sure not to ok the $10 cash back award they ask you to say yes to - it means $12 a month in reality if you check the small print)

this is..fuck, let me say it again;I'm so glad you stumbled upon this,cause now I don't have to worry about actually articulating my utter and complete adoration for dS-you're doing it for me*emits some not-for-public-ears-noises*
Kowalski-hell yes. damn.jesusfuckonastick.just.yes. my love for them as a couple(and Fraser patting Ray on the shoulder before they set off on an adventure is, for Fraser, an equivalent of jumping his bones for anyone else*g*) knows no boundaries. I mean, it's canon. as for fanfic;when I got addicted/slammed right into it like a freight train/got obsessed with it, one of the first fic recommended to me was cesperanza's "Eight sessions" and, well...good recommendation sounds like an understatement of the century but I've used up all my vowels, so...yea. Kowalski. and Fraser. sitting in a tree. kissing. life is good.*g*

I'm still *not over that*. And that following the speech from his dad on teh mountain about partnership! About how he and his mom were partners. I boggled. Because really. Really.

I'm in awe that you finished it already, and all of Cesperanza's amazing fic...don't worry though there's a ton of wonderful stuff at the archive.

I always loved the Fraser/Ray V. friendship, but it was just missing something to get me over into the slash space and when Ray K. showed up, I went *oh-so that's it.* Of all the other people that wanted Fraser and loved Fraser, there was no one else that would have gone into the wilderness with him.

As far as the actors, the chemistry was incredible. Weird, quirky, playful, intense. Just lovely.
