Recced because: Good crack fics are important, especially to maintain my sanity. Getting a crack!fic that has such a ridiculous set up but manages to keep characters in character and still be hilarious is a rare bonus, and Paying For It is one of these bonus stories. Jack suffers a surprise visit from the Doctor with some terrible - yet hilarious - news, has to listen to the biggest rant in history, and gives the reader some thoroughly entertaining lines - including a wonderful punchline. Basically, it just left a huge smile on my face the whole time I read it.
