Review:
The other 'Ray K is a mechanic' AU, only this time Fraser is an academic and Vecchio is a mobster (boo! hiss!) For those who haven't been able to tell thus far (i.e., those who haven't read any of my previous Due South recs), I'm a big Vecchio fan, so the fact that I can rec a story in which Vecchio is the *bad guy* must tell you something. And that something is that this fic rocks. Fraser is repressed, Ray K is sparking with energy, and Ray V...well, best I don't think about that too much. On top of all of that, the majority of the story takes place during a Chicago heat wave, and Fraser doesn't have air conditioning. Who does he know who does? Ray K, of course, necessitating long, hot, sweaty hours spent half-naked at Ray's apartment. Come on, how can you possibly skip this story with a teaser like that?

(For those that actually want plot: Fraser is a professor struggling to come back after getting thoroughly screwed by Victoria at his last job. Ray K is the mechanic who works on Fraser's jeep. They bond over chess, spend lots of time together beating the heat, and then run into mob trouble due to the fact that Ray V's marrying Stella and Stella sucks. At least I can get behind that last characterization.)

Excellent Fraser and Ray voices, with a good assist from Dief and Welsh. A perfect fic for those who are already missing the summer.
