Why This Must Be Read: Jack Harkness is one of those characters that can so easily be transplanted into any other fandom. He's enigmatic, bold, sexier than should be legal, and one of the most complex characters ever created for television. Bashingstroke takes this fabulous man and puts him seamlessly in the SGA universe. Captain Jack vs The Wraith. But she takes the story that much further by positioning him alongside Teyla. We all love Teyla because she's strong, level-headed, a brilliant leader and communicator, willing to do what is necessary to save her people. She's a remarkable woman and the interactions between her and Jack will just have you clapping with glee. What works is how similar they are to each other and how they can recognize that similarity; they are both inherently alien outsiders forced to live within an Earth-system and they bond over their estranged feelings of duty and loneliness.

The characterizations are gorgeous, the world building is epic and you'll just love it.
