Fandom: due South

A Guide to due South on LiveJournal


“I first came to Chicago on the trail of the killers of my father and, for reasons that don’t need exploring at this juncture, remained, attached as liaison to the Canadian Consulate.” ~Benton Fraser, several episodes

Constable Benton Fraser’s search for the killers of his father leads him to Chicago where he forms a partnership with Detective Ray Vecchio of the Chicago PD. When his investigation brings down a top-level Mountie, Fraser is ostracized for his efforts and assigned to the Canadian Consulate in Chicago where he continues to work as liaison with the Chicago PD, first partnering with Vecchio (until he takes a deep undercover assignment), and then with Ray Kowalski. During the course of their partnership, Fraser forms a deep friendship with both Rays, and while this is a cop-drama injected with a lot of humor, it is also their story.

For additional general information check out the fandom overview at crack_van here. There are also essays regarding several pairings at ship_manifesto here.
