First thing: thank you! I read your story in two days (yes, I really was that hooked), and loved every moment of it. And, while I remember to say it: this is the first story to make me laugh out loud in a verrrry long time. It was the ice fishing comment, and Ray's response afterwards. So beautifully in-character for both of them, and so well put that it just, well, tickled me.
You have a natural instinct for character interaction. Fraser and Ray's bannter was so well done I could hear their voices very clearly. Your other characters were nicely rounded, showing that you can construct your own people and not rely on the show's creations too heavily. They were believable and well-rounded, and you didn't over-exagerate the two leads.
Y'know, I knew it was Myers at the very beginning. When Jill is going over the cases on her own into the early hours, and Myers made her jump, I knew immediately that they were the killer. Weird, eh? Anyway. I loved it, and it will be joining my Favourites archive very shortly.
Only one criticism: please break future stories into chapters. I did find it a little difficult to find my place again! I thank Bill Gates for the Hibernate function in Windows...
Anyway, it was a very good story, and I shall certainly read more of your writing in the future, and most likely come back to this one and read it again!
All the best,

This is an absolutly brilliant story, it is funny and moving and shares and "emotional honesty" with the show. Even knowing that there was a plot twist (I read the other reveiw before I read the story) I was still shocked by the ending of the case. Well done, I hope that you publish lots more stories. Thankyou

I really enjoyed this.
You captured both Ray and Fraser's voices and mannerisms perfectly, to the point I could hear and see them in my head as I was reading. I chuckled aloud more than once at the customary banter between them but there were also several touching moments that really illustrated their bond of friendship without ever making it too mushy or over the top.
I'm normally a little ambivalent about romantic interests, especially in a love-triangle type situation, but I liked Jill and I thought you dealt with her wondering about her feelings for Fraser - while falling for Ray - very convincingly. I did smile at Fraser allowing Ray to spend some time alone with her and stepping aside, as it were, at the end.
As far as the story goes I must applaud you; I genuinely did not see the conclusion coming and I was as suprised as everyone else when the murderer was revealed. Whilst his reasoning for his actions may not make sense to a sane person I suppose that is the point really, as he was clearly disturbed after all that had happened. Sometimes it is very easy for the storyline to be overlooked in favour of character interaction but in this you maintained both superbly.
I'd definitely be interested to read more 'Due South' stories if you were to post them.
