rec: 1896 by Bad_Dickens

Hello! I will be reccing this week. I warn you; I have a weakness for Jack Harkness (though I won't be reccing exclusively Jack fics). We begin with a story set in the years between the Game Station and the Torchwood series.

Author's Summary:
As alluded to in 1996, Jack Harkness made the acquaintance of Oscar Wilde. Was he out to kill him or to save him?
Characters/Pairings:Jack Harkness
Warnings: Nond

Recced because:
Mainly because I adore the idea of Jack meeting Oscar Wilde. The fic itself is well-written. It does a good job of portraying the sad circumstances of Wilde's life. You understand the empathy that Jack has for him, not just because he's a famous writer, but because he's so tragically doomed.
