Reactions and Reviews
Immediately upon discovering this story, I decided that my friendslist — nay, the entire world — was fired for not informing me that a fic existed that involved Ray and Ray and baseball. Honestly, they probably could've spent the whole time eating babies and kicking puppies and I still would've loved it. But fortunately for, well, everyone, probably, this story doesn't involve either of those things, and instead there's humor and heart and banter and baggage and sweetness and a little sadness and a slow, bumpy road and these two guys kind of falling together and finding out they fit, in a beautifully mundane way. Both Rays are so spot-on and wonderful that I was filled with glee from beginning to end. And Minervacat's clear knowledge and love of Chicago just shines throughout, grounding and enriching the story. (And for those of you poor souls who aren't baseball fans, worry not—the game is used as a framing device, and an elegant one, delightful if you're a fan and neatly functional if you're not.) And maybe best of all, it's a longish fic, making it perfect to dive into to make a boring Friday pass more quickly or to curl up with and savor on a lazy Saturday morning.
