PROMPT: Day 19 Prompts: Song/Poem: Beat! Beat! Drums! by Walt Whitman

It's summer, mild enough for open windows and long chatting walks with students fueled by more enthusiasm than wisdom. But enthusiasm wins more battles than it should, and love of history is something to be nourished. He pauses, on the way back up the steps, there is an older gentleman with all the mannerisms of the military, but none of the weariness two world wars imbued.

Blackboards and wax tablets remember what you wrote, long after marks are wiped away. He leans his forehead against cool stone, these walls hold slate not false veneers of paint and plastic, and wonders what would happen if walls could speak.

"Not the best idea, heads and walls, I should know." O'Neil is back, and Indy is tired of telling him to go away. Tired or not, he glares at the intrusion.

"I brought you something this time." O'Neil turns, apparently expecting someone behind him. "Damnit, Daniel, not again. Wait here."

"It's my classroom."

"Right, yes." And he's gone again.

It's grown while he was gone, enveloping the house in coppery green leaves that glint in the fading sunlight. He reaches out, to pull down the strand that hangs precariously along the door frame, and she bats his had away before the posion has a chance to do much more than blister.

LENGTH/RATING: 187 words, PG-13, Ten/Jack (yes it's possible to have PG Slash, now shush)
SUMMARY: Written for [livejournal.com profile] drabbles Day 8 Prompt: Song/Poem: The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost, but horribly, horribly too long... *mourns*


I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


Jack's younger the next time the Doctor sees him, centuries younger and still flaunting that unabashed joy in life he never seems to lose. Time travel plays merry havoc with personal continuums and it's hard not to tell him go away, stay away, stop before she breaks you... because the Jack that was and the Jack that is are nothing but distorted images, ripped to pieces by the weft and weave of time.

But Jack is Jack, warnings will only guarantee the inevitable, so the Doctor turns to leave.

"Do I know you?" There's a hand on his arm and blue eyes, earnestly confused.

"Not yet."

There's the flash of a smile, and it's not what he meant, but it's how Jack takes it, and the Doctor already knows he'll be forgotten, because he's already been forgotten, so what does it matter?

The future can wait, just a little bit longer.

[livejournal.com profile] drabbles Day 14 Prompt: Verb/Action: Returning home

It had been a long day, in a series of long days, and Jack couldn't shake the feeling that any second now something was going to kill them.

The grill sputtered happily beside him,

He'd lured the team out to the cabin, as much from a need to keep them in sight, keep them safe, as much as a chance to unwind.

"I'm getting too old for this." Jack looked out across the lake, having given up all pretense of fishing about the same time Daniel rescued dinner from the grill. Complete coincidence, of course.

"Couldn't agree more." Daniel hands him a plate, and snags a beer from the now half-empty cooler before settling into the other chair.

"No, no, you're suppose to say something comforting." Jack tipped his beer admonishingly.

"Mmm."

Jack raised an eyebrow. "Don't mmm at me young man, kids these days--"

Chaos ensues.

In retrospect-- no, actually, he still had no regrets.

"We come in peace." Jack was doing his best impression of a benevolent dictator.

"And heavily armed." The spokesperson for the village looked unimpressed

"Sometimes peace isn't mutual."

"You want me to what?"

"Just for a day?" Rhys sighed at Ianto's frown. "Just for a morning then? They wouldn't notice the replacement, not the way you cook."

"It's not cooking--

"Some alien gadget then--"

"--it's brewing."

"--and it would be good for them." Rhys proffered the deceptively cheerful tin. "Ianto--"

"You've never seen Jack before his morning cup."

"And I don't want to, trust me on that, I just--"

"Sorry, but asking them to save the world on decaf is out of the question." Ianto crossed his arms, resolutely defending the espresso machine.
