Drabble: Inseparable (Jack/Ten)

Title: Inseparable
Author: Adalia
Characters: Jack Harkness
Rating/Warning: none
Summary: In the twentieth century, Jack was sent to a therapist more than once.
Author's Note: Written for a Drabble Week prompt from wendymr.


In the twentieth century, Jack was sent to a therapist more than once. Anger management issues, trust issues, abandonment issues... it sometimes seemed like his issues had issues. Things occasionally got to the point where his Torchwood employers gave him an ultimatum: get professional help or get locked away.

So he went, though he never told them the real problem was that he’d seen the Doctor multiple times over the years, visiting Earth on and off, carefree and happy and wonderful.

And it hurt that the Time Lord he loved and the Time Lord he was furious with were inseparable.

*hugs Jack*

You've done a great job of using the same prompt in three completely different ways - excellent!

Thanks! That was my goal, though it occurs that I missed a glorious opportunity to have Mycroft and Lestrade literally inseparable because some bad guys had tied them up and Sherlock had to rescue them. :-P

This is adaliazandra's fic journal, which she hadn't planned to use very often. That plan has since been defenestrated in favor of posting fic update notices and rambles about DW and TW.

If you note the spiffy paid-account layout, that's because nightrider101 is simply the most wonderful person ever! :-)

If I seem to have disappeared off the face of the Internet, it's because I probably did. I don't actually *like* suddenly ignoring my LJ friends and leaving my stories hanging, though, so odds are I'll be back eventually.
