The script works nicely though I had to install the socat package which is ok.

I made a script that should work for you. It's attached. Basically what it does
is get the number of the tty and set fenrir's suspending screen to that
terminal, then it launches startx, and on close, it unsets the suspending
screen so Fenrir comes back.
Fenrir will continue to work as expected in other terminals. I tested it on my
computer, and it worked as expected. It will even check to make sure you're in
a plain terminal, and not something like screen or tmux.

The problem is, even though the graphical desktop comes up, I will
still continue to get the feedback from Fenrir. So lately I had
resorted to suspending Fenrir in tty 2 where I launch my startx.
My question is, Is there a way to autosuspend Fenrir when startx is
being launched? If there is, how can I do this? Or can this be added as
a feature in future releases of Fenrir?
I am on Arch Linux, and startx will be running the mate desktop. So in
my .xinitrc I just have this line:
Are there any other parameters that I can enter?
