(at least until Fraser fell for someone else)
due South Seekrit Santa request #1
What I would like most this holiday is the story of Benton Fraser’s first US Halloween, please. This would be when his good friend (not lover, or at least not yet) Ray Vecchio tells him about the crazy customs of American Kids in Chicago at Halloween, and Ray and Benton are enlisted/persuaded/cajoled/blackmailed into taking Ray’s nieces and nephews trick or treating. There may be an old-fashioned Halloween party at the station. There may be a bad guy that they have to thwart or someone in need that they have to help in order to save the day. There should definitely be an Innuit story and a chase to keep Diefenbaker from eating chocolate. I would so love to read this chapter of their friendship, woven into a holiday I deeply love.
Thank you kindly, Santa!
