recced because:
I picked this story partly because I wanted to rec at least one author that had never been recced on Calufrax before, and I wanted at least one Torchwood fic. Mostly, though, I picked it because it's so wonderfully true to the subject matter. It's about another Torchwood Cardiff team, some unspecified number of years in the future. The author does a does a good job of portraying each of the members of the team as individuals, and also their dynamic together. They feel like a family, much like the current team.

This story is jossed by CoE, but not in any way that matters to the larger point of the story. I like the reflection on Jack, on Torchwood, and on the way that nothing ever really changes, even when everything does.
