My Immortal (Buffy/Doctor Who)

Summary: fter settling in Rome in 2004, Buffy started dating a man known only as 'The Immortal', and who was - by all accounts - entirely too good to be true. What if one of his other names was 'Captain Jack Harkness'?

This is an intriguing story. I can't speak for how well it fits with Buffy and Angel canon, not having seen the episodes it references, but it does fit in with Torchwood canon. Not that one needs to know that; it's more evident in small references and allusions. The main plot is independent of what happens elsewhere, and the quotes at the start of each chapter help one get oriented.

I loved the characterisation of Jack; not just his thousand-percent flirting machine, and not just his angst for the things he's lost (especially the Doctor), but insights that he really is from a completely different culture, and sometimes it gets to be too much for him, how bigoted and backward humans of this time are from his point of view. Of course, Jack being Jack, I'd rate this "teen" rather than "general".

I liked how it highlighted how much he and Buffy had in common: how they both wanted a "holiday" from their usual lives, how Buffy understood what it was like to be dragged back into life, how they both knew that world-saving can turn into an emotionally exhausting grind that still has to be done, over and over again; that sometimes the best course is to "sieze the day" and not worry about tomorrow. I also liked how they were different, too; complementary; anchors for each other in different ways.
