Author’s summary: "It's a partnership and he couldn't care less. It's theirs and nothing, not anything, is ever going to take it away from him."
Characters/Pairings: Captain Jack Harkness/Captain John Hart
Warnings: S2 of "Torchwood," graphic slash-o-rama.
Recommended because: This is a dark, intense, very adult take on the relationship between Jack and John back in their Time Agency days, and the feelings they might have had . . . or not had, or been fooling themselves about. There's a bitter sting in this story's tail, and a genuinely memorable sense of . . . tragedy, I guess you'd call it. Sockets in well with the Jack/John relationship shown in canon. It's worth noting that rallalon has taken on the difficult task of keeping the characters essentially nameless, with the usual attendant problems of tracking which "he/him" is which -- but I think it's handled about as well as it could be.
