What's Good? "A Strange Comfort" (2008; PG; ~1K words) by leela_cat is May's recommendation-of-the-month. Set immediately after "Last Act," this story is both serious and gently amusing as it displays Nick's equal tendencies to melancholy and to hope.
Feeling lost, he tossed the ball at the bare concrete wall. Over and over again, throwing the ball with his right hand, and catching it in the glove on his left. The movement mesmerised him, allowed him to forget about everything. No worries about anything or anyone. Nothing but the feel of the leather in his hand, the thud when the ball hit the wall, the smack of it against the glove. Hour after hour.
The sound of the phone finally pulled him out of the trance.
