Story: But What That Place Could Be
Author: Yamx
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4310
Author's Summary: On Jack’s first morning onboard the TARDIS, he and the Doctor have a serious disagreement with an unexpected outcome.
Characters/Pairings: Nine, Jack, Rose
Warnings: none

Recced because: Following the emotionally riveting Father's Day, we have The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, where Nine and Jack meet and don't like or trust each other very much. Right on the heels of that, we have Boomtown, where Nine and Jack seem like incredibly good friends. There's quite a canonical gap there!! This wonderful canon-consistent fic ties all four of these episodes together in a wonderful package. This fic gave me everything I never knew I wanted in terms of context for Nine and Jack's friendship, and is a VERY insightful reevaluation of Father's Day, to boot! This wonderful story makes the close bond we see in late s1 make more sense, and it provides some good character development for both of them. I highly recommend this fic - especially to any fan of s1, any Jack fan, and anyone who counts Father's Day among their favorite episodes.
