Drabble: Of All The Gin Joints

Title: Of All The Gin Joints
Author: Adalia
Characters: Nine/Old!Jack
Rating/Warning: none
Summary: Several centuries after Torchwood, Jack Harkness spends some relaxing time running a bar on a small, nondescript planet. In walks someone he never expected to see again. What were the odds?
Author's Note: Written for a Drabble Week prompt from nightrider101.

What were the odds? Of all the gin joints, in all the worlds, in all the Universe, he walks into mine.

He doesn't know it, of course. Doesn't know who I am, or rather who I will be to him later. Doesn’t even seem to know what’s going on around him, actually.

He looks terrible. And young. And so wonderful... those cheekbones, that jacket, those glorious ears.

Those eyes.

This must be right after the War. And here he is in my bar, where maybe I can help him.

What were the odds? Lady Time must be on our side.

Lovely. :) And I'm missing Nine again!

Me, too! Luckily one of the fics I've been working on for... three years now? oops... is a Nine fic, so I have a great reason to keep writing him. :-D

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.
