What Makes A Friend, by helsinkibaby

What Makes A Friend

Fandom: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
Genre: General, with some slight shippy undertones. If you squint hard like I do.
Characters: Nick, Catherine
Rating: PG

Synopsis Set post-Overload, Catherine checks on Nick.

Review: Overload is one of my favourite CSI episodes, largely because it's one of the few episodes where Nick seems to have anything to do, but also because of the angst and the Catherine and Nick interaction. This fic trades on that, building up a believable scenario post-episode, with Catherine finally getting Nick to open up a little about his revelation in Overload. The characterisation is good, the piece is well written (a few grammar quirks like missing commas aside), and it made me cry. Enough said.
