An outstanding new entry for a well-established fandom. The author beautifully captures RayK and Fraser's dialogue and inner voices. The story is present tense, and includes suspense and plot. It's framed by alternating Ray/Fraser storytelling, looking back from the future to the story's now. That sounds complicated (and I'm sure it was to write!) but it provides a nuanced look at how curiosity turn to friendship turns to deep friendship turn to love.
This lovely extract occurs when our boys arrive at a Canadian Shack™, and Fraser notices Ray's confusion:
Fraser wonders whether he should offer to top-and-tail, sleep at the foot end, maybe even on the floor, but he’s had an exceptionally long day, he’s exhausted, and moreover he’s tired of negotiating with a man both unnervingly vulnerable and constitutionally incapable of backing down. If they have to end things here, so be it. It’s been a day of endings.
