Fandom: Torchwood/Doctor Who
Rating: PG, gen

Characters: Jack Harkness (sort of), Tenth Doctor
Summary: Was this what they saw when they looked at him, the Doctor wondered – a creature far beyond any simple understanding, ancient and dangerous and all too perceptive?
Spoilers: none

Archive: Sure, whoever wants it – just let me know where it ends up!
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] fox1013's Gen Battle – in other words, yet more 7-800 word comment fic! I had hoped to do more for the Gen Battle, but somehow February proved to be a bit of a washout on the writing front.... Prompt was "Crossover, TW/DW, Jack and Ten, 3 million years in the future, NO FOB". This is thematically similar to a much longer piece that I poke at occasionally, but as that shows no sign of being finished any time soon, I'm letting a few ideas out to play here.... :)

Notes: This was originally intended for a porn battle post, but then it grew a bit and I decided to use it to start off my [livejournal.com profile] infinityplus_1 table instead. :) A small look at what Time Agent!Jack might have been up to in those two years that he can't remember....

Title: Riptide
Author: Aeshna
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 1,111
Characters: Jack Harkness
Summary: He was the rock in the stream, the boulder in the flow, the obstacle that could not be washed away.
Spoilers: DW3.13 The Last of the Time Lords
Disclaimer: Not mine, no matter how many DVDs and toys I buy! Everything here belongs to RTD and to Auntie Beeb, who already has my licence fee.
Archive: Sure, whoever wants it – just let me know where it ends up!
Notes: During the writing of something else, I suddenly needed to know where Jack was when time was resetting itself. A quick bit of rewatching confirmed that he was still down in the reconfigured TARDIS, of course, and that led to wondering just how much his unique relationship with the space-time continuum would play into his perception of things. It would have made for an awkward lump of exposition in the original story, so it's been calved off into this so that I can get it out of my head. :)

Summary: And to think that she had once been excited about Mr. Saxon giving her a job.
Spoilers: Heavy for DW3.12, The Sound of Drums and DW3.13 The Last of the Time Lords

Archive: Sure, whoever wants it – just let me know where it ends up!
Notes: Discussing The Last of the Time Lords with [livejournal.com profile] mimarie, it occurred to us that by the end of that lost year, for all that Jack may like and respect Martha, he'll probably have known her sister far longer and far better; it is, after all, hard not to bond with someone who is quite literally spoon-feeding you. This bunny followed on soon after. :) Unusually for one of my fics, I think it may spawn a sequel at some point.

Up Above, Down Below )
Title: "Singularity"
Author: Aeshna
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating: PG
Word count: 366
Characters: Jack Harkness
Summary: The universe folds. He plays on.
Spoilers: Maybe vague for 3(29)x11 Utopia and x13 The Last of the Timelords, if you squint a bit.
Disclaimer: Not mine, no matter how many DVDs and toys I buy! Everything here belongs to RTD and to Auntie Beeb, who already has my licence fee.
Archive: Sure, whoever wants it – just let me know where it ends up!
Notes: Something short that has been nagging at the back of my brain for a couple of weeks, based on the explanation of Jack's immortality in Utopia and that line about how he could still be out there somewhere. So, if Jack is a fixed point in space-time, what does that actually mean for him in the (very) long term?

(For the record, I'm not really getting the thrashing fuss over what sounded like a throwaway line in the last episode of DW s3, given that they'd stated the fixed and permanent nature of Jack's immortality quite clearly on several occasions. And that's the more interesting interpretation for me as viewer and writer, so.... :))

Rating: PG

Summary: But all children are ungrateful.
Spoilers: For the endings of Parting of the Ways (DW s1) and End of Days (TW s1) but it's all rather vague.
Disclaimer: Not mine, no matter how many DVDs and toys I buy! Everything here belongs to RTD and to Auntie Beeb, who already has my licence fee.

Notes: This was one of those bunnies that hopped up and savaged me at some ungodly hour of the morning, demanding that I scribble down the first couple of paragraphs before I got any sleep. Wasn't sure where it was going for a while, but then the Torchwood season finale aired and all became clear!

Title: "Illuminated"
Author: Aeshna
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating: PG
Word count: 3,150
Characters: Rose Tyler, Pete Tyler, Mickey Smith
Summary: Life was, after all, for living, no matter what had been lost along the way.
Spoilers: For the end of Season 2/28
Disclaimer: Not mine, no matter how many DVDs and toys I buy! Everything here belongs to RTD and to Auntie Beeb, who already has my licence fee.
Archive: Sure, whoever wants it – just let me know where it ends up!
Notes: Written for the Rose Tyler Gen Ficathon on the [livejournal.com profile] rose_lives community. [livejournal.com profile] bimo requested:
    * Pete
    * Torchwood
    * A line from The Skaters by John Gould Fletcher: "the brushing together of thin wing-tips of silver" as mood setter/inspiration
[livejournal.com profile] bimo did not want:
    * Happy fluff
    * Helpless, angsty Rose who hasn't learned how to move on.
This is not, in fact, the fic that I set out to write for this challenge – I do intend to go back to that one, but I realised that it was rather more plot-intensive than I'd originally thought and that it was unlikely I'd get it done inside a month! So this is something of a prequel to the fic I'd actually planned – I hope it works okay. :)
