Author's summary: Jack has to sit through the Twentieth century, waiting for the Doctor. These stories follow him from 1953-present day Torchwood, with all the usual trouble that Jack can get himself into.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Other Characters
Recced because: If you only read one series of stories that covers some of those years between Jack's arrival on Earth after PotW and the start of Torchwood, read this one. Jadesfire has a brilliant ability to bring Jack and the various characters that cross his path through his long path to Series 1 of Torchwood to life. Every character is so real that you care about every single one of them, even if they aren't the 'name' that Jack Harkness is. But most especially you get to learn more about who Jack is now that he can't define himself by his life with the Doctor and it's simply marvelous to read.
