    Summary

    No_one_in_particular and I exchange stories each year for Yuletide. Here's year two, for her prompt based on the 1978 made-for-TV miniseries called THE DARK SECRET OF HARVEST HOME. (Each year I've picked her most obscure prompt. One day I'm going to pick a fandom someone else knows about. Possibly.) The teleplay stars Bette Davis as the Widow Mary Fortune, and also David Ackroyd, Rosanna Arquette, Joanna Miles, Michael O'Keefe, Rene Auberjonois and a very young Tracey Gold.

    The miniseries itself is based on the novel HARVEST HOME by Thomas Tryon, and follows fairly closely, if recollection serves.

    My prompt: Justin's ghost talks to Nick.

    I had "A Tell-Tale Heart" in mind while writing this. No idea if that came through.

    You probably need to know how the miniseries ends to read this (spoilery, if you can spoil for something that aired in the 70s): After Nick witnesses what "no man sees, nor woman tells," the Widow Fortune cuts out his tongue and eyes.

    Since the more obscure the fandom, the more I go on: there's backstory in the end notes.

    Written with much love for my best friend:)
