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!
