'The Wolf and the Phoenix' by Dune

Sorry for the delayed recs again - still ill & too hyper about tonight to think much, so I'm doing two at once again. >.< But still - read, enjoy, review. ^^

Story: The Wolf and the Phoenix
Author: Dune
Rating: All ages
Author's summary: The beginning of a beautiful friendship...
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, The TARDIS on his desk, The (actual) TARDIS, The Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None
Word Count: 5029

Recced because: This is the story of how that little piece of coral/TARDIS got on to the desk of one Jack Harkness. And where it (and he) went from there.
I really really really wish this story were canon. Yes, I know I've said that about nearly every story I've recced this week, but with this one I can't help but repeat myself. ^.~ Dune's painted a wonderful picture of how the TARDIS came to be with Jack, and how they manage to build a relationship nearly as close as the Doctor and his TARDIS. Without spoiling what happens, it has a bittersweet but hopeful ending (the kind I'm fond of, though goodness knows why xD) for all parties involved.

A good read if you're feeling in a contemplative mood and want to distract yourself from the squee of this evening. ^^ But unfortunately, my next rec may well undo that.
