He touched, and let his fingers explore the delicate globes; like his own, but
so marvellously different, "Youre lovely, you do know that, dont
you?" Ray said directly to the phallus, seriously, "Very lovely."
Trapped in a sauna, Ray Vecchio knows perfectly well how to handle the heat... and an

Canada by Sarah Bellum

Revenge by Catherine
Ray checked his wrist, a drop of blood was welling to the surface. Shocked, he
stared down at her, wide-eyed with surprise, and a hint of fear.
Fraser searches frantically for Ray, trying to find him before Victoria is able to
complete her plans for revenge.

Slightly inconvenienced by a misstep, the boys have to find new ways to amuse themselves.
After the Fall by Cyble
The shadowy figure in the next bed shifted in the darkness, hands raised to
press against hidden eyes. Ray knew the look that would be in them now. He wondered if
Adams eyes had looked that haunted after the fall.
If Your Heart Is Tired
Unable to face another day of desperate longing, Ray decides to break his ties
with Benton Fraser.
Even thinking about fucking Benny felt like he was corrupting an innocent; hed
never be able to bring himself to touch him.
Somewhere In My
Heart by James Kythe Walkswithwind
Unable to change who he is, to be someone he isnt, Fraser believes he can
never be what Ray wants.
After a few moments of silence, Ray heard, "I bet your friend doesnt talk to

"His fathers dead."
"And what am I?"
Co-operation two stories by Quill
Red serge, guard duty, and a Chicago heat wave do not mix, but Ray Vecchio has the
"Do it, Fraser," was all Ray said. Sighing, Fraser turned around and slipped
out of his soiled uniform. Ray sat back and watched, enjoying the whole thing.
Sans Souci, At
the Urging of a Mountie and Benny Love a trilogy of stories by Julien
Fraser has always been able to get Ray to do what Fraser wants, but this time
hes playing for the highest stakes ever. Old fashioned courting and romance are all
he has to get through to a jaded cop.
"Dont go getting any funny ideas, okay? Dont you be making any
plans that involve my butt!" Ray crossed his arms and shuddered a little, then
wandered safely out of Frasers line of sight.
"What was the plan?"
"I was waiting until you were ready, Ray. I wanted to let it happen naturally between
us." "Thats it?" "Well, I didnt say it was a good
Ringin In The New
Year by Gillian
"Just once," Louie muttered, pouring half the bottle into
Frasers punch, "Just one Im gonna see this guy with egg on his face. If

I'll Oh, God, Im gonna puke..."
Its Dogs That Fetch,
Ray by Trish Darbyfeld
Getting Dief washed is just one more of the many errands Ray cheerfully runs for
Benny on an average day. Not!
Silence Keeps The Door
by Gloria Lancaster
A very long story that spans episodes, seasons, themes, and emotions.
He was nine years old again, and powerless, silent, gagged and muffled, and screaming
inside, but no one could hear, and Ray would die here, in the dark, because no one would
ever hear him screaming.
I learned to love him, I shall
just have to learn not to. And everyday, please God, it will get easier and easier.
I really shouldnt have
kissed him that time, not like that. He looked as if Id punched him or something. Am
I so very unlovable.
Every sense Ray had was filled
with Fraser, and with the love he felt for this man. Im lying in this mans
bed, this man has kissed me, undressed me; Im fucking this man, equal, honest to god
fucking, raw and so good Im gonna die if it stops. Ill just die, thats
all, just die.
And other stories there is
simply no more room for on this flier to describe...
