etherati: (DW - ten/jack)
Title: Diminishing Returns
Fandom: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Jack
Date Written: 2007
Summary: Ten and Jack and their respective baggage collide in the Torchwood Hub. Sometimes you need something more real than a belief, to cling to. Neither of them is ready for it.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13. Slash, non-explicit sexuality. A mild, theoretical reference to suicide. Some disturbing imagery.
Notes: This has been done a thousand times, but it’s also pretty old, from back before it HAD been done a thousand times. I sat on it for a long time and just before the end of SE03 realized that HAY I SHOULD PROBABLY POST THIS. Before it became not just future AU but instead that dreaded beast, revisionist AU. So, not as polished as my usual stuff, but I think, worth posting back when I still could. Not exactly ‘dark’, but not in any way sweet and fluffy. Boys got issues. Title is from the song of the same name, 'Diminishing Returns' by Harvey Danger, my favorite dysfunctional Ten/Jack song.
Spoilers: PoTW, I guess. In that Jack's still alive. It's a stretch.

The stranger takes off his glasses and says something Jack won't remember later. )
