Author's Summary: (Crossover with "Sense8"): Five times Torchwood ran into the cluster, and one time they didn't.
Characters/Pairings: Gwen Cooper, Jack Harkness, and the Sense8 characters Will, Riley, Nomi, Amanita, Lito, Hernando, Sun, and Mr. Whispers

Recced because: How often do you see a Sense8/Torchwood crossover? I know this is the only one I've seen, and it's got everything I love in a Torchwood story -- specifically, Gwen Cooper being a take-no-prisoners badass -- as well as the most vital part of any fanfic (for me, anyway) -- specifically, characters who sound like themselves. Prochytes nails each sensate's voice, and the whole story feels so natural and well-realized that it's hard to believe it isn't canon for either show.

Excerpt:
Nomi sighed, looked up for a moment from her frenzied tapping at the keyboard, glared at Gwen, and resumed. “She’s got cute freckles and a pretty voice. Which is good, because I’m hearing a lot of it.”

“Ouch. You’ve honestly got nothing to worry about. Amanita’s virtue is safe. I’m five thousand miles away, and very happily married. My husband just asked me to keep it down a bit because he’s trying to watch Homes Under the Hammer; that’s how happily married I am. I’m just wondering why your stunning girlfriend and my stunning bestie are physically identical.”

“Coincidence?” said Nomi, still typing.

“No such bloody thing. Maybe Amanita is a spatial genetic multiplicity. I’m one of those.”

“A spatial genetic multiplicity?”

“You have such cool conversations when I’m not there,” said Amanita forlornly.
