How about a fic from the new series for today?

Story: One Long Starless Night, Two Soldiers Met at a Crossroads
Author:teacupnosaucer
Rating:
 Teen
Word Count:
 1942
Author's Summary:
 Rory receives an unlikely visitor: a man both like him and not. Someone makes a promise they could never keep. But for a little while, anyway, things aren't quite so lonely. A story in four parts.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Jack Harkness
Warnings: Spoilers for the end of series 5.

Recced because: This fic chronicles the adventures of the Lone Centurion during the events of the series 5 finale and his meeting with another man in a similar predicament: one Captain Jack Harkness. It weaves both eras together nicely, dropping small details throughout, and is achingly bittersweet and intimate throughout. This piece captures the pervasive loneliness of those who are fixed in a world that is constantly in flux. The last section, in particular, will leave you with a bit of a broken heart.
