First DS fic posted: October 2008
Full disclosure: I suppose I am not completely unbiased, as I found Sionnain's Due South fanfiction before I found anyone else's, discovered that people write Ray/Ray, and now LJ Due South fandom is stuck with me.
Pairings: Sionnain is an enthusiastic Ray/Ray shipper, who has also written Fraser/Vecchio/Kowalski, Fraser/Vecchio, Kowalski/Stella/Vecchio, and Kowalski/Mike Sweeney in her Due South/Durham County crossover stories.
Style and strengths: Sionnain usually writes longer stories, but has also written shorter pieces and drabbles. One of her greatest strengths is in her ability to consistently and accurately capture the voice of the characters she’s writing, both in her use of dialogue and her story exposition. Sionnain’s stories are often sensual and sexual, with optimistic and happy endings, but she doesn’t shy away from writing angst. Sionn has also made vids and fanmixes, and recorded podfics.
Other DS/C6D activity: Sionnain has written widely in the C6 fandoms, including Hard Core Logo, Battlestar Galactica, Durham County, Last Night, Twitch City, Suspicious River, Slings and Arrows, and Flashpoint.

Some favorites:

No Sudden Moves and No Regrets (due South, Vecchio/Kowalski, PG-13, about 3500 words)

This is a sentimental favorite of mine, as it’s the first Ray/Ray story I read. Sionnain balances humor, snark and romance perfectly.

Grocery Lists (due South, Fraser/Vecchio/Kowalski, PG-13, an image-heavy media-fic)

Not only does this piece always make me laugh out loud, it also demonstrates sionnain’s talent for voice, as the story is told entirely (and the characters portrayed completely accurately and cleverly), through a series of scrawled notes.

were no crime (due South, Fraser/Vecchio, R, about 3000 words)

I love this story; how the romance develops so naturally from the friendship between Ray and Fraser, and how the characters are so well-drawn, with Ray’s exasperation and Fraser’s uprightness. I also love how Sionn used setting in this story; Chicago emerges almost as another character.

Unfettered (BSG, Leoben, Kara, PG, about 2000 words)

That missing scene between Kara and Leoben in the series finale? Sionnain wrote it beautifully, capturing two of the show’s most tricky characters and providing some much-needed closure.

And Watch the Clock Ticking Slow (Last Night/Durham County, Patrick Wheeler and Sadie Sweeney, PG-13, about 3600 words)

A brilliant blend of two very different fandoms, and a character study that’s wonderfully bittersweet.
