Interrupting Tardis for Missmara (PG13-mild R) Torchwood

Title: Interrupting Tardis
Author: maryavatar
Recipient: missmara
Fandom: Torchwood (with a little Dr Who mixed in)
Rating: PG13 (maybe edging into an R)
Spoilers: up to S2 finale
Warnings: I started writing this before season 3, and decided not to flounce off in the huff when I got Jossed (damn you, RTD, damn you to Hell). It was bloody painful finishing it, and I reserve the right to retcon the balls off it once I'm feeling a little less peeled and salted. For reference purposes, this is set after the S2 finale, there is no S3 (DENIAL!!!) and the Doctor in question is #10.
Summary: My prompt was 'A century (or more) after the Apocalypse killed everyone, Jack is still alive. Can be any kind of apocalypse, and feel free to include flashbacks of the rest of the Torchwood team, but at least part of it must take place a century later and Jack is the only one left. Past Jack/Ianto is great, but please no past Jack/Gwen.' I think I stuck to it fairly closely.
