Summary:

The facts were these: Eric Bittle owned a pie shop, Jack Zimmermann played professional hockey, and an early morning encounter had slightly painful and entirely unforeseen consequences. (This is not a pushing daisies au, but there is an adorable tiny blonde character, a tall awkward dark-haired character, and a bakery.)

Review:

If there's one thing you can count on Jack Zimmermann to be when confronting his feelings for Bitty, it's awkward. Which is how he walks away from a poorly planned meetcute with a bruised face.

hit me baby one more time is charmingly true to the Check, Please! canon in spite of being an AU. Jack is shy and awkward, Bitty is certainly no wilting violet, Shitty and Lardo are excellent wingmen, and Chowder is ever so Chowder-y. There are pies, two boys shuffling toward each other after a disastrous first impression, and more sweetness than you can shake a stick at.
