Rec: A Note Left by rallalon

Story:  A Note Left
Author: rallalon
Rating:  Teen
Word Count: 1,739
Author's Summary: "Doctor, Rose, if I don't make it back to you and we never see each other again, I want you two to make sweet, sweet cross-species love and think of me. Often, and at the same time."
Characters/Pairings:  Jack Harkness
Warnings: Justified angst.

Recced because:  This is the video note Jack might have left for the Doctor and Rose before traveling back in time from the Game Station where they abandoned him.  It's a powerful missing scene that could well have happened.  Rallalon does an amazing job of portraying Jack at a moment of transition where the humor and astounding faith in the Doctor and Rose we saw at the end of S1 coexist with confusion and a nascent sense of betrayal. I highly recommend it enough for fans of the Captain. Also, look for the sneaky Bad Wolf in the coda!

"In case you haven't guessed it yet, I'm still up and walking. I know, right?" He smiles a little, trying for a measure of levity. All the same, there's a tightness at the corners of his eyes that the crinkles of a smile can't overcome.

Another angsty story elbowed its way onto my rec list.  Tomorrow, I promise crack with Donna.
