rec: Practical Mythology

Greetings! I post as Allonym on the Teaspoon and I will be your reccer this week. As usual, I’ve tried to find a variety of recs - hope you find something you like.

Story: Practical Mythology
Author: Lyricwritesprose
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 14,263
Author's Summary: Jack Harkness is a conman and a survivor. He doesn't believe in legends. And he shouldn't be running towards the invisible menace—but he is.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (9th)
Warnings:. Explicit Violence, Swearing

Recced because: There are a lot of great “Jack finds his place on the TARDIS” stories, but this one is my favorite. Lyricwritesprose does a wonderful job with the little details that bring a story to life and give it depth. The Doctor especially is well characterized, his many facets revealed as Jack puzzles out his traveling companions.
