The first one I opened may remain secret , as I don't have a link to it or knowledge of who sent it (though I have an inkling). It was a great surprise, because, as I have the short term memory of a goldfish, I had forgotten that I had requested a card concerning Craig and Patrick from Last Night. On the front of the card there's a red heart with "Happy Valentine's Day" written inside of it, and the card says "To: Patrick, From: Craig." On the inside of the card there's a middle finger, a small smiley face, and the words "you fucker". The card gave me a much needed laugh, and I love the direct movie reference. I now have this vision of the two of them in some kind of afterlife...
My other card was from sage , who wrote the Rays absolutely perfectly. You can see her brilliance via this link: Let's Go Somewhere Friendly
I sent some cards as well, and the recipient appears to enjoy them, but I'm feeling shy these days, so I will probably remain secret.

Pairing: Fraser/RayK unrequited and/or pre-slash
Length: 236 words
Ray knows what terminal velocity is. He’s reminded of it right now, because he and Fraser just jumped out of a plane. Actually, Fraser kinda pulled him out after distracting him but that’s neither here nor there, he figures, because it’s pretty much too late to do anything about it.
Ray is thinking about falling. Not the literal kind of falling, like he’s doing right now, but the figurative kind of falling. He probably should be worried more about the former than the latter, but he’s not, because he figures Fraser’s got it figured out, the whole issue of landing.
No, Ray isn’t worried about the literal landing. He’s worried about the figurative landing. Because while Fraser probably has the literal landing figured out (oh hell, he definitely does, because even Ray has managed to remind himself that there’s going to be a ton of snow to sort of lessen the damage), Ray isn’t too optimistic about the figurative landing. Ray figures Fraser doesn’t have that one figured out, and he sure as hell knows that he, himself does not have a clue about that one, except for knowing that it hurts like hell, always does, nothing for it.
Ray really wishes he could’ve stopped himself from falling in the first place. But that’s the thing; just like he didn’t know Fraser was going to shove him out of the plane, he never saw it coming.
