Makeup by j-s-cavalcante & kalena (NC-17)

Bonus Rec!

Title: Makeup
Fandom: Due South
Pairing: Fraser/Kowalski, Fraser/Kowalski/Frannie
Categories: action, angst, case file, cross-dressing, drama, hurt/comfort, discussion of pregnancy, romance (in a way), virgin to gay sex
Length: Epic (~50,000 words)
Warnings: mention of pedophilia; discussion of incest, and although there's no actual incest this story has an incestuous feeling; this is a story about forced sex (someone made them do it) and discussions of its repercussions; this does not fall under my definition of rape per-say, but may fall under it for someone; I would highly recommend reading all of the authors’ warnings before reading this

Review:
Fraser’s been kidnapped and the ransom is made up of some pretty strange items. When Ray asks Frannie to lend him her makeup, she gives it to him with minimal fanfare, but when he asks for her underwear, she lets him know there's no way she’ll give it to him unless she gets to go with.

I love this story, believe it or not, for Frannie. She is so strong in this, and deals so well with Fraser being a bit of a dope. Ray is really great as well. His voice makes this story a whole lot lighter than it would otherwise be. Lt. Welsh also has a great cameo in this.

It's great how the authors took this common ‘someone made them do it’ plot and made the story as much about the aftermath as it was about the forced sex. I also love that the forced sex wasn’t anywhere near perfect.

There is something about the beginning and ending of this story that doesn’t completely jive. The jump straight into plot with the long slow ending does make the ending feel a little anti-climatic.
