FIC: Growing Pains 1/? - Search and Rescue

Here's the much babbled about post-VotD fic that I've been... well, babbling about in various places on LJ lately. I'm just about typing in my sleep now, so I just want to get this first part posted and done with.

Title: Growing Pains
Author: Adalia
Characters: Ten, Jack Harkness, various original bit part characters
Rating: All Ages (to use the new Teaspoon convention)
Categories: Post-ep, Friendship, Angst, H/C, Character Study
Summary: After Voyage of the Damned, the Doctor visits Jack. But this Jack is very surprised to see this Doctor…

Since I quite like the whole teaser thing I used for those last parts of Heat Tolerance, here's one for the first part of Growing Pains...

Was he sure he wanted to do this? His ship's lights seemed to flare and then dim again impatiently, as if telling him to stop dithering and get on with it. With a small smile for his beloved ship and her temperamental personality, he admitted that it truly wasn't a matter of want. He desperately needed what he had come here to find.

The lights glowed again for a moment, this time in reassurance. He smiled softly again, and guided his ship to their final destination. The familiar sounds of flight and landing surrounded him for a moment, chasing other thoughts from his mind. But all to soon they faded and, with a clunk, he and his ship solidified into reality.

He stood breathlessly still for an eternity, expecting a knock on the door. But all remained quiet.

Oh, I loved this!

It's a brilliant concept and I absolutely adore your handle on it. :)

I can't wait for more! :D

*bounces excitedly*

(Oh, and sorry for not commenting over at Teaspoon - something over there keeps messing with my computer. :/)

*happily waits for more*

Glad you like it so far! I'm really excited about this fic, myself.

Don't worry about Teaspoon, I don't mind where comments wind up. I'm just happy to read them! :-)

While I have mixed feelings on "Voyage of the Damned", it has spawned some lovely hurt/comfort fics which are a guilty pleasure of mine.

So far I love your take, and the future glimpses of an established friendship between Jack and a future ginger-haired Doctor are fascinating. If there's anyone out there that can relate to the Doctor and the life he leads, it's Jack, and more so the Jack of the future. I especially loved the button scene as a captivating example of non-verbal communication on the Doctor's part.

I saw in your earlier LJ post (where you mention you had committed porn-- go you!) that you hadn't seen Life on Mars. If you are interested, I could help you out with that with a loan of vids. I recently finished watching the series, and highly recommend it. John Simm is a damn fine actor.

I have mixed feelings about VotD, myself, but in general I've decided to take what RTD gives us and try to love the lovable bits and just philosophically ignore the rest. And, in the meantime, I have to agree about the hurt/comfort fics. I'm addicted, I think. To writing and to reading them. :-)

I'm glad you like the background I'm trying to establish. You will see more of it later. :-)

I actually have access to Life on Mars thanks to my mom's tech savvy downloading skills. I just haven't had time to watch, yet! I'm really looking forward to it... though luckily, detailed knowledge of Sam's character isn't exactly necessary for this particular bit of porn.

I've never had someone offer to loan me vids before, it's really nice of you! And a a big indicator of how much you really loved the show. Thank you for the offer, and for commenting! :-)

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.
