"The Tale of the Rift"
Who
: David (briefly), Harry and Jack
Where: Fob!watch verse
When: Day after the incident with David and Blue in the TARDIS


David darted to class, late again.  He'd spent twenty minutes outside of Harry's locked door, pawing lightly at the wood before giving up and dashing to his room with two teas, both cold, and assorted treats.  He gave those out to the students that could answer his questions.

David pouted lightly in the teacher's lounge with Robbie that afternoon after Harry told him off.  For someone that said he didn't care much, he certainly did seem to.

"I guess...he'll walk home alone today?"  He sighed and waved goodbye to Robbie.  He had another sort of date with Rose.  He could worry about Harry later.

Harry wasn't in the mood to see David. He was working to avoid him so he wouldn't have to forever be stuck staring at the wrong version of the man he loved. Sighing lightly, he sat in his office till it was 5 o'clock, definitely long past when David would of walked him.

Heading home and idly swinging his briefcase in a playful manner, he kept his eyes peeled for any signs of an overly affections Scotsman.

After all, he didn't exactly need that right now.

All he needed was to get back to his plans on how to move all his stuff back and how to keep Blue quite enough not to disturb anyone that might live in the neighbour. Sounding his alarms every morning was not helping him.

Having seen a hundred Masters, a hundred Harold Saxons and a hundred various other people that looked absolutely exactly like the Master and Harold Saxon, Jack was bound and determined just to walk right on by this one.

He wasn't quite sure how he got here, really. There was that bit of time when he had poofed out of existence, he did actually remember that, and for awhile, he was actually happy that Harry had managed to save Ianto's life for his younger self. Or so he thought.

And then he'd shown up here. It was the oddest sensation, seeing duplicates. No one actually seemed to mind. In fact, he'd even seen two versions of the Doctor snogging over on Piccadilly a few weeks ago.

Weirdest sight in the world.

Frowning at the man just ahead of him, he couldn't help but stare. Because it was Jack... or was it Jack. Not Jack? Some alter Jack? Maybe it was John. He could never be too sure which one of them it was.

Then again, he'd never known John to wear braces. Or carry a Webley that was not so subtly hidden under a RAF coat.

It had to be Jack. Right?

Frowning, he held his briefcase tight in his hand before deciding to take a shot in the dark. What was the worst that could happen in this insane little world?

"Jack?"

From: [identity profile] cpt-51century.livejournal.com
Not a Master then. He'd have called him 'Freaky' or 'Captain Weirdo of the Crazy Itch Brigade' or whatever clever little thing came into his mind.

Jack turned and glanced over his shoulder, arching an eyebrow before he realized that this particular version of the man had his hair slightly grown out with the start of curls around his ears.

What were the chances?

"Where's the Doctor?" he tried. That could be the surest sign.

He didn't exactly know how to react to that one, he wasn't sure if this was his Jack still. If he should approach or not.

He just remained rooted to the spot, trying to fathom it out,.

"Not the warmest hello in the world," Harry remarked before tilting his head to the side and shrugging. "Not with me right now actually, for a while anyway, he's -- sort of undercover. I'm just waiting."

Waiting as loyally as Harry always did.

Jack's eyes immediately brightened up as he gazed at Harry and pulled the smaller man against his chest. Jack was quite the hugger. He must have picked that up from the Doctor.

"Harry! What're you doing here? Why are you here? Didn't he close the rift?"

Jack pulled Harry back out by the shoulders to look at him, long eyelashes blinking rapidly.

"Are you all right?"

Date: 2010-11-03 12:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] iehcsok.livejournal.com
It was Jack! His Jack! For the first time in ages, he smiled bright and enjoyed the hug, the familiarity. Wasn't Jack fixed? Change and adapted now, not the one he knew? Oh hell, did it even matter yet? He was just thrilled to have someone he knew well enough to understand him.

"The Doctor said the rift wasn't fixed, something was following him and we dropped us off here to try and lay low until he can sort it all out. Three months, he predicts."

Shrugging his shoulders, he took a deep breath before slumping against Jacks chest in absolute relief.

"Why are you here?"

Jack had no idea how much Harry wanted him around. If it was up to him, he'd of invited Jack on board the TARDIS to stay with him and the Doctor. He wasn't sure why he was so attached to Jack but even since that day that Jack had comforted him in the bathroom, he'd finally found another human he actually got on with. Even if it was an immortal human from the 51st century.

"David? Oooh, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised," Harry remarked as he fell into step with Jack, happily walking home with his only friend in the world.

"David is a very familiar bloke, he just keeps the TARDIS in his bedroom. I'll drop of my briefcase in my flat and we'll break in. Idiot never locks his windows."

"He...what?"

Jack followed Harry up the trellis half an hour later, ignoring the stares that they were getting. Evidently, no one around here called the cops on obvious breaking and enterings, so it would be all right. This David person was rather neat.

Jack paused as he strode through the living room, glancing at the sofa before he laughed.

"Oh, I get why he parked here. Your David knows Rose Tyler, huh? I'd know that jacket anywhere. Still, if she lives here... Well, her room in the TARDIS is a mess. This is so neat!"

From: [identity profile] iehcsok.livejournal.com
Harry didn't particularly care if David ever showed up, he was too busy making his way along to the TARDIS. "You know, I'm getting really fed up of hearing the name Rose. David never shuts up about her, don't know why. Probably nothing special."

Pushing the TARDIS doors open, Harry ventured into it with a small frown. Nothing had changed, it all seemed the same as ever. Though he wonder to himself if the TARDIS got lonely.

Resting his hand on her panel, he smiled down and gave her a good natures stroke.

"Come on Jack, I can't move a sodding bed by myself!" Harry called over his shoulder with a good natured laugh, wondering how long it would take to remove his room once more.

Date: 2010-11-03 02:02 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] cpt-51century.livejournal.com
"You'd have liked her. You both have the same sort of wonder about things. And we traveled with the Doctor, like you and I did." Jack stood in the center of the console room and then shrugged off his coat. "Oh, hello beautiful. You're looking as amazing as ever."

Jack had a fondness for all things Gallifreyan. He supposed that meant Harry too, considering he was currently in the body of a Time Lord. He caught up with the mousy haired human a few moments later, having figured out that Harry seemed to be a bit jealous of Rose.

Perhaps the Doctor made friends with her again?

Maybe Harry didn't know that Rose and the Doctor's hand had gone off to get married? That could be awkward to explain.

"So!" He slapped his hands together in front of him. "What first?"

Harry stood in his bedroom, a somewhat reluctance to move anything. He looked around, trying to take a mental picture so when he returned, it'd all be put back as it was.

"The bed, biggest task first then we'll get the desk, the cupboards and I think the last one will be the bookcase. We can move everything else in passing," Harry remarked as he carefully removed the pillows and blanket, tossing them aside.

"We could always move you a bed in as well. Stick it in the other end of my bedroom, it'll be like Cardiff all over again."

Grinning at Jack, he pushed the bed away from the wall and took a hold of the bottom, waiting for Jack to join him.

Date: 2010-11-03 02:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] cpt-51century.livejournal.com
"Oh, but we're old friends," Jack teased, rolling up his sleeves. They were in the middle of shifting out all of Harry's furniture, though why they needed anything more than the bed, he didn't know. "And look at this thing! We could invite David too!"

He winked at Harry, shouldering most of the burden as Blue introduced himself -- having flown in from the window, which was great, really, and started to sing a very pleasant working song for them.

"I promise that my intentions are mostly good!"

As Harry and Jack hauled the bookcase out of the TARDIS awkward, trying their best to bare the weight as they manoeuvred around Davids living room, Blue chatted away at David, going over several different mating methods.

"Some insects will consume their mate after sexual intercourse along with some alien species. According to the Mister Master, a race by the name of Laksge, which is pronounced with a silent 'g', mate then bite through their loves neck and consume the blood."

Harry sighed as he returned, turning his head to the chatty robot and shaking his head. Was it really just going to go on about mating to David all day?

"And then, there is human mating, like you're used to! I have observed Harry doing it many times."

... Oh no. Harry looked utterly frozen to the spot, praying that Blue knew how to shut up-- oh of course he didn't!

Date: 2010-11-03 01:52 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] impulsive-charm.livejournal.com
David had, technically, never actually had sex. He didn't have memories of doing it either, the Doctor hadn't programmed him with any. Oh, he had memories of girlfriends and kissing and holding hands, all of which he'd done with Rose, but actual sex...

No. David McDonald was a virgin.

That didn't stop him from arching an eyebrow at Harry before he started to laugh. Jack stayed quiet, however. He already knew about Harry and the Doctor after all.

"Oh, then you're a regular Captain Kirk, are you?"

"Searching databases for Captain Kirk...searching...searching...Star Trek television program acquired. Negative. Captain Kirk and Harry had no similarities!"

"Did you know that the Masters father wrote an episode of Star Trek but had his name removed? Mister Master said it was a grave injustice, even if it was a rubbish episode."

Sighing a brief of relief, Harry ran his fingers through his hair before dashing off down the hallway, leaving blue to ramble on about Star Trek and Sci Fi's while Harry grabbed his blankets and pillows hauling them out of the TARDIS.

"This is all I need. Jack, you coming?"

Harry didn't exactly want to spend long periods of time around David. After all, David wasn't the Doctor. He loved this Rose person, didn't remember him, barely liked him and didn't know how to say the right things to cheer him up. It was just too hard to stay around.

As Harry left the flat with his bedding, Blue stayed behind to have a good old natter at David about the flaws in Star Trek that the Master had ranted about to him when they watched an episode together.

David was really very impressed with the robot and took the challenge of the debate on ion propulsion which was theoretically feasible and also in early testing. It gave Harry -- with Jack following -- just enough time to get out of there. Blue would follow later, as neither he nor Harry really wanted to be without the other.

As far as co-dependent robots went, Blue certainly took the cake...which he would likely complain about not being able to eat thanks to having neither a stomach nor a mouth.

"He seems nice enough," Jack said, knowing this was a touchy subject with Harry. "Not really how I'd expect the Doctor to be...Martha told me that the last time he did this to himself he almost got married.

Not the smartest thing to say, but Jack sometimes forgot others' feelings.

Married? Oh great, he was going to end up marrying Rose, having bloody kids and stealing the Doctors body for the rest of his life. Crossing his arms, Harry slumped into his newly stolen armchair, obviously less thrilled by David.

"He seems all nice but he'd not. He's a selfish spoilt brat who tried to drown himself in the Thames."

Sticking his hand down the side of the armchair, he pulled out the book he'd stashed their and opened it up, happy enough to resume normal activity.

"Oh yeah, you can make yourself at home. Have a tinker with Blue if you like, maybe you can get him to quieten down a bit."

"Harolddddddd, I accidentally flew into the bathroom mirror and there's glass everywhere, I need you to clean it up."

Oh Christ, not again!

Date: 2010-11-03 02:18 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] cpt-51century.livejournal.com
Jack decided to do just that, sitting on the floor as Harry went to go and clean up the glass Blue broke. "Come here my little friend, let's have a look and see if we can make your propulsion systems a little less awkward!"

"Coolant levels, check. Gas flow diagnostics are...incomplete."

"All right, we'll check the lines first!" Jack said helpfully, listening to Harry as he cursed up a storm in there. "Ah, there we are, a bit of a clog there. Right! Have you fixed in an hour."

"Countdown commencing!"

"Works fine for me," Harry offered with a small shrug, not all that picky. he just liked to follow the flow. After all, he was just glad to be doing something. David had Rose to spend all night with, Harry had Jack to keep him company.

Seemed about fair.

Once they were seated, Harry rested his head in his hands and glanced over at Jack, wondering why the man wore such tight fitting clothes. Sure they looked good on him but didn't they feel uncomfortable?

"So, are you stuck here?" Harry asked with a small curious frown, wondering if Jack would forever be trapped here now.

"Stuck? I would say I was stuck. I've been looking to get my manipulator working. Obviously, nothing for me back where we're from." He winked at Harry and ordered wine, still unsure about their meal, but he liked a good drink.

Having met several Iantos -- whom he tended to shy away from -- Jack was mostly sticking with people he did not recognize. He wasn't use to being a transient though.

"But maybe if I go back to where I came from...even in this universe? At least it would be something. Guess you can say I'm hoping for a fresh start."

From: [identity profile] iehcsok.livejournal.com
Harry nodded his head in agreement before crossing his arms and leaning back in his seat. He knew what it was like to have many of himselves around, he would of liked to start fresh himself but he was too loyal to the Doctor.

He never could go anywhere without him, which is why he wouldn't let David ever go too far.

"I missed you, anyway. When you disappeared, the Doctor came back and -- well, I threw my shoes at him. But I did wish you hadn't of gone so soon. You could of said hello. Or goodbye, I guess."

Harry didn't usually make friends or form attachments but even Jacks charm worked on Harry, even if it didn't on his Master counter part.

From: [identity profile] cpt-51century.livejournal.com
"Wasn't my choice," Jack said, eyes warming. A lot of people said that they missed him, but more were just as happy to see him go again. He doubted Harry was the latter. Harry was far too sweet...even if he threw shoes. "I'd have preferred just to stay where I was."

He thought he'd died...or been regulated to an existence without a form for eternity. Wasn't that what happened to paradoxes?

Instead, he'd come here, to this place of weirdness. "Trust me on that. It was always better with you. Did everything get figured out with that other you then?" Jack'd never be able to say 'Master.'

"Oh yes, sort of, I have no idea actually," Harry wasn't sure how to answer that, the Master got to a calmer happier place when he and the Doctor sort of made peace and he happily went travelling but the Master still called him 'pocketwatch' and mocked him constantly.

"He had a shaky start, he tried to kill me a few times, electrocuted me half to death, locked me the broom closest for a whole day and dumped his bowl of cereal on my head when I told him off for using all the milk... but eventually he calmed down and the Doctor let him go."

And Harry didn't mind that, even if the Master kind of terrified him, he did want his otherself to be happy and living his life.

"He said he'd be back one day so I might see him again."

"Let's hope it's not with the three of us locked in a cage dangling over a cauldron!" The waiter returned with their wine, cracked the bottle open and poured their first two glasses for them before leaving with their orders.

Jack had selected lasagna, something large and filling, with an antipasto and tiramisu for dessert simply because he reather did like the 'usual' and anything was better than pizza.

Pizza reminded him of Cardiff far too much.

"At least everything's in place now." Jack lifted his glass. "To the Doctor, when he manages to come back to us."
