rec: Cell 6710 by Nixa Jane

Hello again! It's me, eve11, your intrepid recc-er yet again for the upcoming week! On to the first one:

Story: Cell 6710
Author: Nixa Jane
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 7927
Author's Summary: No one goes to Drakoon if they have any sense at all.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Jack Harkness
Warnings: None
Recced because: This is a dark tale with mystery, suspense, action, and a very creepy and sinister setting. In 8000 words it manages to be surprising and scary (in both situation and character study) as well as heartfelt and hopeful, and it's such an interesting way to address the Wrongness of Jack Harkness, as well as the Doctor's past. It's like watching an episode, where the freedom of fanfic allows the subtext to peek out as straight text at the end. I'm not going to say any more, just that if this had been an episode, I can't imagine anyone in all of the various stripes and corners of Who fandom not finding something to love about it.
