Chicago's Most Wanted by Speranza (NC-17)

Title: Chicago's Most Wanted by Speranza (NC-17)
Fandom: Due South
Pairing: Fraser/Kowalski
Categories: Humor, Angst, Action, Amnesia
Length: Epic
Warnings: n/a

Author on LJ: cesperanza

Review:
Due to circumstances that do not need to be explained at this juncture (but which are explained in the story), Fraser finds himself without his memory and with the understanding that he is a criminal. Being Fraser, he promptly decides to be the best criminal he can be. While donating a ton of money to charity. And poor Ray is the sucker who has to catch him.

I love amnesia!fic, I love Speranza's DS stories, I love humor, I love angst, and I love quirkiness. All of which are present in abundance in this story. Frankly, this is awesome enough to have been an episode of the show, with a slashy/smutty bonus (just in case you needed a bit more convincing). All around wonderful.

Oh my God, I'm so, so glad that you recc-ed this!!!!!! ^____________________________^

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I was a fan of Due South at the time the show first aired, but I was barely ten so it was touch and go if I saw an episode out of four (plus, the TV channel that aired the show wasn't exactly reliable about showing the story in order/with all the episodes/ and so on).

But a couple of weeks ago I decided that I wanted to watch it again (believe it or not, but it was because I read a Stargate Atlantis/Due South fics ^^;;; ) and so here I am. I just finished watching the episodes and decided to use epic-recs to find the best DS fics instead of running in circle on the net, searching for decade old fics.

Anyway, I have to say, this was the best DS fic so far that I read (and I've already read something like 30 fics in about three days ;p ).

Again, Thank you !!!

(God, I need a DS Fraser/Kowalski icon! ^____^ )
