First DS fic posted: March 2009
Full disclosure: Aria and I are friends, and she has beta-read for me.
Pairings: Her main pairings are Fraser/Kowalski and Fraser/Kowalski/Vecchio, but she has also written Kowalski/Vecchio.
Style and strengths: Aria's writing ranges from light and funny, to heartwarming, to tense and angsty. She likes the magical realism aspects of due South and writes them wonderfully. Her dialogue is delightful, and she has a talent for letting the characters shine through, so that I love them even more.
Other DS/C6D activity: She has also written Battlestar Galactica (Kara/Leoben), Hard Core Logo, My Life As A Dog and Slings & Arrows. Aside from fic, she has also written quite a lot of due South meta, mostly on episodes of the show.
Katabasis (F/K, R, 17,000 words)
Ray finds that Fraser has gone off into the Borderlands, and goes after him. This is a rewriting of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth as a due South story, with Bob Fraser making an appearance, naturally.
Magnetic (F/K/V, R, 20,900 words)
This is a delightful post-CotW story where Fraser, Ray and Ray realize that they belong together. There is tension, sexual and otherwise, but it's also a very warm and loving story.
And Count Myself a King of Infinite Space (Hard Core Logo/Slings & Arrows, Geoffrey Tennant and Billy Tallent gen, R, 5700 words)
This story brings out interesting parallels and connections between HCL and S&A. Also, there is Joe Dick's ghost, which can only be FTW.
