Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (9th)
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.
Jack seemed to be mesmerized by the man. “That's impossible!” he muttered, tapping a command into his wristcom. The answer did nothing to reassure him. In fact, he was shaking his head in disbelief. “I loved them, wanted them to be true, but they were just . . . stories!”
Enjoy! And review.
