Author's Summary: Jack, post COE, tracks down and confronts the Doctor about why he didn't come to save the day. The Doctor, immediately post WOM, is in a really bad place mentally to be having this conversation.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness/Tenth Doctor
Warnings: Explicit Sex, Swearing

Recced because: Mature look at two traumatized and broken characters. All the emotions and the blaming and evading of issues is handled well in my opinion and the character’s feel very real and in character. It’s deliciously angsty and the sex is angry and not comforting, but the ending is deliciously bittersweet. It’s one of my favorite stories for this pairing.

Author's Summary: Jack watches himself be in love and adventuring in Cardiff. Set during the episode Boom Town of DW and before TW season one (slight Doctor/Jack or Doctor/Rose/Jack, however you want to read it)
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Mickey Smith, Rose Tyler, Suzie Costello, The Doctor (9th), Toshiko Sato
Warnings: None

Recced because: There are several canon episodes where it's logical that characters should meet their younger selves. But that's a paradox, and needs to be avoided at all costs. Here Jack Harkness is forced to sit and watch his younger self without intervening.

Excerpt: It was one of those days Jack wanted to be anything but the head of his own little Torchwood Three. There had been an increase in rift spikes recently and there had been some sightings of Weevils outside of Cardiff. There hadn't been time for rest in days.

And at the moment he still had some trouble recruiting. And he supposed it had something to do with the new leader of Torchwood One. The overambitious Yvonne Hartman had made it clear that she saw everything that came out of the rift as the property of Torchwood One and obviously he had to tread carefully with her. That left him with deciding which information was secure enough to be passed on and what should never leave the confines of his own Torchwood facilities without attracting her attention. All the hushing up grated on his nerves. More than usual anyway.

His mood hadn't gotten any better over the week when he followed the news and remembered that he would have to do something that he really did not like to do at all: He would have to lie to his employees, would have to cover up the evidence and last but not least would have to stay put.

“Are you kidding me, Jack?” Suzie cried. She was waving a newspaper in front of his face. Toshiko was sitting at one of her computer screens, but was watching the argument interestedly. “You want us to go to Bristol to check the Weevil incident? And you are not going to do anything about this nuclear power plant being built right on top of us? On top of the rift!?”
