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.
