They were different men now, no longer Prince and loyal subject, no longer Major and Captain, bound together in service. For the first time, they would meet as equals. Or, as equal as they would ever be, considering God’s Grace flowed through David’s veins, and Jack’s blood held only the poison infected in him by his parents.
Teen, post-series. I have such a soft spot for this pairing, and this is fic fixes everything they got wrong in the show.
Aww, Jack… While I wish they’d stuck closer to the Bible’s Jonathan (and didn’t like the “gay villain” trope), I couldn’t help but feel heartbroken for him. Music: Everybody Wants to Rule the World, by Lorde.
Jack looks startled when David appears in his room that night. I didn’t think I was going to dream you tonight.
Teen, post-series. David fights, and dreams, of people he’s lost – of Jack, trapped in a tower… Poetic and haunting, this fic uses the Song of Solomon and the biblical David & Jonathan to great effect.
