FRER Evaporation Line - 6/7dp5dt

Good morning ladies. I don't often post here but I am wishing every single one of my fellow Snowbunnies the best of luck! Smile I wanted to post this morning though to hopefully save a future Googler from a little bit of the heartache I have given myself.

Because I can't help myself, I tested last night with a FRER (6 days sooner) at 6dp5dt. I saw nothing after three minutes, assumed it was negative and told DH. Again, because I can't help myself, I went back and looked at around 12 minutes (for shame, I know!) and of course there was a second line that looked slightly pink-tinged. With the ambiguity of the timeframe I was distrustful of the positive but having never seen so much as a smudge on a test before in two years, I still allowed some hope to seep in.

I immediately began Googling FRER evap lines, etc. only to get mostly sunshine and rainbows from other communities about FRER "NEVER" giving evap lines. I went to bed with my hopes a little higher. This morning I tested with FMU extremely hopeful that it would be a BFP but it was a stark white BFN. So, future Googler - learn from my story -- FRER CAN and WILL give you evap lines, even just 12 minutes after peeing. 

Here's my evap pic. Though it's still very visible in person and I tried to take the best photo possible it's still kind of a squinter here:
