Author’s Summary: A long time ahead, in a space bar far, far away, Jack gets a message he didn't expect.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto, various OCs
Recced because: Let me put it this way. You know that Star Wars/Torchwood fusion you want, where Jack Harkness is Han Solo? Except how you don’t actually want that, particularly, because then you have to deal with everything that’s going on in the Star Wars universe, when all you really want is to watch Jack buckle swashes and dash handsomely about and navigate through a rich and well-realized universe, awash with alien culture and mind-boggling sights?
(Oh, and for bonus points, if it could also double as a CoE fix-it and allow Ianto some space to show off exactly how awesome he is, that would be great, am I right?)
Too much to ask from one fic? Apparently not, because Blackbird Song has written it. This is what would happen if Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina and Finding Nemo had a baby in the Whoniverse. And then that baby starred in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s funny, it’s sweet, it’s an adventure story, and it has heart. I can’t recommend this enough.
