Oh this gives me so many feelings I had to take a moment before I could summon enough coherence to reblog it. Because they were both painfully lonely until they met, and now they face death with such equanimity because dying in the arms of the person they love best in all the world doesn’t seem like such a bad way to go.
sometimes I just like to remind myself how Ray and Fraser look at each other this is a good example
#due south #i’m sure all crime-fighting buddies find the time for looks like this #while hiding on boats full of criminals #looking for gold and toxic waste #because it’s always the right time to look at your partner like this #always #kiwi’s gifs reminded me of this moment #a thing of beauty is a joy forever
there are red ships and green ships but there’s no ships like pirate ships full of gold and toxic waste
wait that’s not how it goes
That’s so how it ought to go though
I just love how he literally hides behind his Mountie identity. Especially that bottom cap from Victoria’s Secret (should I worry that I can identify a random screencap? No? Ok good I won’t!) where he’s remembering how he turned her in and feeling bad about it, and then he dips his head all sorrowfully like that and hides behind the hat as if he’s saying, but I had to because I am a Mountie, that’s all there is to me so there was no choice to be made. But that’s not quite true, is it?
Either I’m sorry, or you’re welcome.
I have nothing more to add to this.
And what more could anyone possibly say?

It was VERY disconcerting to watch that episode of due South as a Xena fan. It wasn’t just “my, Paul Gross, you are a beautiful woman!” it was “my, Paul Gross, you are embodying my Xena: Warrior Librarian Princess fantasies RIGHT NOW.”
Rule 2.3 of the SHIELD legal department might be ‘Under no circumstances is Capt. Rogers to be allowed anywhere near the Canadian Consulate or 27th police precinct in Chicago. Or Canada, in general. Even for reasons that do not need exploring at this juncture.’
Oh man no but can you imagine though. Can you imagine.
Steve Rogers and Benton Fraser, standing outside Al’s Italian Beef, shooting the shit and eating sandwiches, while Tony Stark and Ray Vecchio look on in gleeful horror.
I have lost my words with how much I want this
I cackle every time I see this scene.
Ray Vecchio is a perfect human being, alright
And if there is anyone on this show I aspire to be more like, it’s grumpy, fashionably challenged Ray Vecchio.
Due South - Ray Kowalski endangering his life in wildly bizarre ways for Fraser.
The last one is not voluntary so much as Ray being pushed out of an airplane as a result of the biggest whopper Fraser has ever told. “Look, Ray - turtles!” And he knows, he KNOWS that Ray will look, because he never lies, and because life with Fraser really can get that ridiculous that turtles might indeed be flying at high altitude. I mean, it’s Canada, it’s weird like that.
Fraser, you are one manipulative, magnificent bastard.
This, this, so much this.
Fraser is the master of the strategy my mother always told me to follow: tell the truth as often as humanly possible, so people will believe you when you lie.
Fraser does not tell a lot of straight up lies (though I seem to recall him being quite good at talking around the truth and leaving out important pieces of information), but when he does, even when they are outrageous, people reflexively believe him.

↳ They shot at me, they shot at my friend. I want to know what it is we walked into.
Fraser when he’s really really really unbearably angry is the most amazing thing ever.
I think you meant most attractive thing ever
Oh wait no shit I forgot about Fraser in half-drag nvm
It should be impossible to be this adorable.
Due South is great because 1. Mounties 2. Chicago 3. Diefenbaker.
“Do you find me attractive?”
“Very much so, yes.”
TURNBULL IN THE LAST GIF. HE SHIPS IT.
Curse whoever decided to light the buddy breathing scene so darkly. Didn’t they know how terrible that would be for graphics makers? HONESTLY.
Weirdest Due South publicity shots ever, y/y?
…What is the point of the middle one omg

I blame tumblr user golugranu.
Vriska is Victoria. Dave is Ray K. We keep arguing about who Thatcher is.
I think we have learned one thing from this: Karkat should never slick his hair back. Also, Terezi is attractive in the serge.
The first shirt Ray V/antas is wearing is pulled from the show. The second one is my heinous creation. The corresponding moment in the show was by the time Ray V was dressing better, but it amuses me to put Karkat in awful 90s shirts.

I wish more due South fic had Bob Fraser in it.
I love cranky ghost dads.

“ Dating ? This isn’t dating,” Vecchio retorted. “This is Fraser acting like—”
“Like Shaft, ” Ray said glumly.
They let that sit between them for a moment.
“Can you dig it?” Ray asked.
“Shut your mouth,” Vecchio said.

ugh and fraser just assumes there will be a next time FRASER
Ray: “I just like a woman who is, you know, a woman!”
Fraser: “Oh, that’s—that’s picky, Ray.”
Ray: “Oh, don’t get in a snit.”
Fraser: “I’m not!”
Ray: “Well good!”
Ray: “So what’re you doing after work?”
Fraser: “Nothing with you.”
Ray: “You’re so sensitive!”
Okay, and Ray’s…good lord, I don’t even know what to call that. Casual cissexism and biological determinism and binarism? It’s a pretty gross comment. Anyway, Ray’s grossness (and written-in-the-90s-on-a-cop-show) aside…this exchange is a great example of what is so delightful (and so totally moiraillegiance) about Fraser and Vecchio’s relationship.
