When you are suffering artSlump and your WIP/abandoned folder is out to heeeeeeeeere you must kneecap your responsibilities and spend the weekend imagining Budapest.

This photoset is giving me life.
I don’t remember meeting him, or even spending a moment with him, but I can feel it stronger than anything. I’m crazy about him! I love him!
Omfg I Can’t Cope.
Right, so I had a bit of a moment at Gillian Anderson.
can’t forget Reese Withouterspoon
I think due South, both the RayV and the RayK era, holds up remarkably well, even now! I do think some episodes are very cringe-worthy and problematic in a more self-aware fandom (in a more self-aware society, for that matter) - like Mojo Rising, that was terrible - but I don’t feel educated enough to make in-depth statements about that.
The episodes that are purely police procedure however, still contain everything they did back then; the wackiness, the friendship, the fish-out-of-water element that they never got tired of playing. And sure, due South was never going to be deemed Super Serious Amazeballs Breaking Bad Levels of Proper Television ™ but if you watched it back then, you probably weren’t looking for that anyway; you were looking for a wacky buddy cop show with a mountie licking stuff and a Chicago cop with an attitude, getting into increasingly ridiculous situations together. And watching the episodes now, today, you still get that.
Plus, there’s the whole… actual ending of the show where they literally rode off together into the
sunset snow. House MD may have done it, but by george, due South did it first, and if that’s not enough squee for the ages, then I don’t know what is.
…also, I’m apparently incapable of writing due South with a capital D. Huh.
That’s what happens when you collect together a remarkable group of people who really love organization and want fanworks to be findable. It breaks our hearts to see even one work vanish into the void.
(For those who don’t know, “- Ambiguous Fandom” is AO3-speak for “There’s more than one completely unrelated fandom by this name, so the generic form will be shared and useless for filtering.” Each of these tags has at least two subtags for the actual fandoms involved. Here, check out some of these unfortunate cases, bathed in the tears of wranglers:
- The Eagle - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between The Eagle of the Ninth and Ørnen: En krimi-odyssé)
- The Runaways - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between the movie, the tv show, and the band)
- Graceland - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between the tv show and the album)
- Borgias - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between the tv show and the other tv show)
…AAAAAAAAAND (drumroll please):
- The Avengers - Ambiguous Fandom (shared between an awesome British tv show originally from the 60s and some comic book thing)
Remember, peeps: Leave your ambiguous tags at the door when you come party at AO3.)
(This has been a PSA from one of your friendly neighborhood Avengers wranglers. No, not those Avengers - the other Avengers. You know, the ones with the awesome lady spy.)
