Title: The Question of Ghosts
Canon: Due South
Pairing: Stanley ‘Ray’ Kowalski/Benton Fraser
Rating: Mature [R]
Word Count: 6,375
Summary: It didn’t matter, Fraser thought, if sometimes the flicker of Ray’s reflection graced the curve of his water glass, or if Ray’s distinctive outline wavered in the heat from the fire. It didn’t matter if Diefenbaker’s eyes tracked a shadow that Fraser couldn’t see, a shadow that seemed to dance soundlessly across the uneven panels of wood that made the humble cabin’s floor.
Recommendation: This was breaking my heart, but I promise a happy ending. The last little bit was a really nice touch as well.
