Everything in my fanbrain connects somehow to due South. Now I want All The Fic about Ray Kowalski responding to the Cubs winning the World Series after 108 years of not winning (and yes, I myself am working on fic for this).

BTW, I am a born and raised Chicagoan. Last night between midnight and 1:00 AM I went driving up and down my local main street participating in the car-horn honking and banner-waving.

For this year's due South Canadian Six Degrees Big Bang [personal profile] mific wrote and illustrated a wonderful F/K fic of adventure, danger and romance titled
In Which Ray and Fraser Go in Search of the Hand of Franklin ; I wrote a complementary piece for it titled Twelve Questing Pieces. Both of these fics are rated mature-to-explicit and with no applicable archive warnings.

Mific's 25,325-word work will appeal to a wide readership while I expect that my 1,121-word work -- being both poetry and unconventional format -- will have a rather limited readership. The unconventionality is that for each of the twelve chapters of the original fic I wrote a chapter in a poetry form, selecting and arranging them chapter by chapter in a specific order to create an acrostic that spells out FRANKLIN HAND. To see how that works, read down the initial letters of the twelve poetry forms that correspond in order to the twelve chapters:

Fibonacci Sequence poem
Rispetto poem
Alphabetical poem
Nonet poem
Katauta Sedoka poem
Lai poem
Italian Sonnet poem
Novelinee Sequence poem

Haibun poem
Aubade poem
Nursery Rhyme poem
Decastich poem

Two dSSS treats written in etheree form. (Etheree is a poetry form that consists of ten lines of unmetered and unrhymed verse, the first line having one syllable, each succeeding line adding a syllable, with the total syllable count being 55; a double etheree counts up to ten, and ten again, and back down to one with the total syllable count being 110.)

Title: Diefenbaker - Etheree
Fandom: due South
Character: Diefenbaker
Category: Gen
Word-Count: 47

Summary: Who's afraid of the big bad wolf? Miscreants. Who's afraid of the big bad dog? Anyone with baked goods.

AN: Written as a treat for the wonderful [personal profile] verushka70, who is a dSSS pinch hitter so awesome that even the extreme pain and compromised movement of tendonitis and epicondylitis combined did not stop her from volunteering to pinch hit and then following through to make the deadline. Her request was for Badass!Diefenbaker.

I should not even be blogging right now. I should be offline and working on my dSC6D BB complementary...but I just had to stop and squee about Paul saying that people come up to him -- even 21 years after the premiere of dS! -- and tell him "I emigrated to Canada because of due South"! (And they are from all over the world: one of these people Paul quotes was from Finland).

The power of dS -- it is all around the world and it never fades!

Link to vid where Paul says the above, then talks about Hyena Road, and then drinks some beer in honor of Edmonton's Oktoberfest: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/paul-gross-talks-hyena-road-oktoberfest-on-edmonton-am-1.3254708
