Rec: "Target of Opportunity"

Story: Target of Opportunity
Author: DameRuth
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 3009
Author's Summary: Jack/Master from the Year That Never Was -- "Flowers!verse" style. A sequel of sorts to "Hothouse Flowers" (even though this story takes place before that one by internal chronology), both of which build on events/concepts from "Like Flowers". The Master forgets it's a bad idea to engage an enemy on familiar ground, and Jack proves that he's nobody's victim.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Master
Warnings: Adult, Explicit Sex

Recced because: This prequel to Hothouse Flowers is often overlooked. It doesn't have the Doctor in it, except in flashback, and a lot of people avoid Jack/Master, the Year That Never Was, or both. But this is one of my favorite little gems in DameRuth's Flowers!verse. Yes, there are dark and creepy elements here, but ultimately, it's a story about Jack's seizing a moment of victory in the midst of a war where he's only meant to be fighting a holding action . . . and how, when you really understand people, you can find weapons in the most unusual places.
