Written in September 2002 because I had nothing particularly sensible to add to an on-going 'writing men as men' blog/lj discussion (although I was following it - in all its twists and turns - with great interest), and I thought the following, um, something or other might amuse somebody.

I started writing "Freak" in the summer of 2000 soon after I became interested in dueSouth, but after three months of opening and closing the story file, all I had was a small collection of loosely related scenes. I was given some good comments on those scenes from some of the members of a list I was on at the time. I have a distant memory of Gearbox and Mia, in particular, offering useful feedback (I just hope I took it!), but I'm sure there were others whose input I've since forgotten, and for that, I apologize.

In any case, long before the random scenes I'd written could coalesce into a finished work, an image of Fraser and Kowalski sharing a kiss in the doorway to Ray's kitchen popped into my head, and I started working on "Touch and Go." In the end, that was the story that became my first ever piece of completed fanfiction.

However, even though I put "Freak" aside, I never forgot about it entirely (mostly because CLFinn kept chastising me for abandoning it). Finally - after almost two years - I dragged the story out of mothballs for one last look and decided to finish it.

I want to thank Rowan, Kellie, Sihaya, and Starfish for their insight and thoughtful comments at various stages in the life of this story. Any remaining peculiarities are entirely a result of my own stubbornness.

Needless to say, any recognizable characters remain the property of Alliance and the Pauls.

Christine - for refusing to let me forget about this story, this is for you.

Disclaimer: You still need to ask? They belong to Alliance and the Pauls - and to each other.

Many thanks to Sihaya Black for endless encouragement, Kellie Matthews for asking the right questions, and AuKestrel for knowing the answers. I love you guys.

(This story is set post-CotW. Consider this a blanket spoiler warning for the whole series)

Many thanks to Kellie Matthews and AuKestrel for the speedy beta. This story is for Valerie K., who put the 'magic cabin' idea in my head in the first place (...oh, and the title means 'miraculous' - or so I've been led to believe)
