This is the rec missing from Wednesday. (I have some bug taking vacation in my system, so I'm feeling particularly slow.)

Story: The Torchwood Girls
Author: laurab1
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 36880
Author's Summary: While Jack Harkness and millions of others serve in WWI, and suffer the consequences of doing so, Joan Redfern, Harriet Derbyshire and some more very smart women save the world from aliens.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Joan Redfern, Harriet Derbyshire
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is an historical piece, set in Torchwood immediately before and during World War One. The emphasis is on the home front, with the ladies taking over because the men are overseas. We do, however, see a good bit of Jack and how he responds to The First Great War. I love Torchwood historicals and this is one of the better ones.

Enjoy! And review.

And for my last rec this week:

Story: World as Myth
Author: aerotica
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 34,611
Author's Summary: The TARDIS is shipnapped by people from Jack's past, sort of. Their advanced technology and unique attitudes toward life and love help the Doctor and his companions in more ways than one.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Yet another crossover, this story crosses Doctor Who with the World as Myth stories by Robert A. Heinlein, one of the three original Grandmasters of Science Fiction. It was a Heinlein story, Time for the Stars, that first introduced me to science fiction, so I've always had a soft spot for his stories. And crossing it with Doctor Who, with Jack, is just delightful.

Enjoy! And review.
