rec: pretenders by ponygirl

Story: Pretenders
Author: ponygirl
Rating: None, but I'd call it Teen
Word Count: 2,115
Author's Summary: Professor Bernice Summerfield isn't the only pretender.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness/Benny Summerfield
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is definitely an unusual pairing, but a surprisingly well-matched one. A pre-"Empty Child" Jack meets up with unlucky-in-love companion Benny, and drinking – much drinking – ensues, followed by seduction and the sort of morning-after experience you might expect when a con man is involved. Read this one not for the amusingly written sex scene, but rather for the perfect characterization: Jack's smooth suavity, and Benny's interior monologue questioning whether a one-night stand is really a good idea.
