Story: All This Season of Snow and Sins
Author: Cherry Ice
Rating: All Ages
Author's Summary: Romana, after the Time War. Jack, at the Time Agency. You can't fight a war, because the war always wins.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Romana II
Warnings: None

Recced because: I've never been a big fan of Captain Jack, but I'm a big fan of Cherry Ice's Captain Jack: He's a fully realized character, not just a walking collection of one-liners, and his darker aspects seem both plausible and earned. This story of Jack's pre-"Empty Child" encounter with a mysterious, traumatized Jane Doe makes the Time Agency feel like a real (amusingly, sometimes creepily anachronistic) place, gives the Time War actual fallout and consequences and has a Romana who feels like her idiosyncratic, incisive self even when she's not all there. Their gradual attraction to each other is both humorous and melancholy, and also feels earned. A very fine portrayal of a pairing I'd never considered before I read this.
