Review:
Before Ray ever meets Fraser, he meets someone else. Someone who tells Ray he’s not long for the world.

Generally speaking, I’m fond of the humorous stories in Due South fandom. This, though, is a beautifully dark exception.

This is one of the best stories dealing with suicide I’ve come across. The changes to Kowalski’s behavior, no matter how minute, make such a difference to the outcome. The slowly deepening paranoia is simply beautiful.

The best thing about this fic is the juxtaposition of Ray’s suicidal visions and his daydreams of him and Fraser. Ray breaks down before the reader’s eyes.

Sadly, missing is the scene of Ray admitting his problem and beginning to be put back together. But the coda at the end almost makes up for it.
