I've been reading through your AU, and this fic really stood out for me the most. I'm not sure what it is, but I love the insight into Jason: dealing with his illness, wanting to be useful, and still having a need to compete with Mark and show him his own worthiness.
At the same time, your depiction of Rick is compelling. We can all identify with his feelings of being an outsider, and wanting to be with the 'in crowd'... and he has his chance, only because Jason has temporarily been 'rejected' too. This really got to me personally, and I could completely relate to the way he felt.
In general, I love the character of Rick. I think I have a little crush on him. ;-)
In any case, I am loving your AU!
