Characters: Ichigo, Ishida. (But no pairing)
Spoilers : Right up to manga no.423
Summary: Post 423. Ishida tries to make Ichigo feel better. He fails.
Authors Note: I'm pretty much brand new to this fandom. (Hello, btw!) I haven't even read all the manga, but my bad habit of skipping to the end meant I saw the latest happenings and this idea just wouldn't leave me alone. I didn't intend to write fic until I knew the whole story to date and had a better handle on the characters, but hopefully I did okay. Reviews and con-crit very welcome.
