Title Boy in a Jar.
Rating Nothing terribly bad in it.
Summary So, where did Jackie come from?


The change happened when the Doctor said to the Master, "I've been alone ever since. But not anymore. Don't you see, all we've got is each other." In one history the Master responded with, "Are you asking me out on a date?" In Jackie's, he fell silent.

The drums beat on, but he was silent.

"Master?" the Doctor asked, worry in his voice. Worry that the Master would do something drastic.

"Everyone, everyone?" he asked finally.

"Yes."

And the Master hung up. And then he called back again. "Would you be interested in having tea with the wife and I?"

This time the Doctor fell silent.

"Yes. I would love to."

Apparently something about being the last two Time Lords struck a chord with the Master. Oh, sure, he still wanted to rule the universe... but a certain part of him longed for home. A home that would never ever be.

So, they had tea. And they talked. Lucy, Jack and Martha sat on couches staring at each other as the two Time Lords rambled on arguing, reminiscing, and going back and forth on what to do.

They reached an impasse. The Doctor left. The Master took over the world. The Doctor stopped him. The Master did not get shot.

The Doctor took the Master and placed him in the TARDIS. Lucy went with him.

Time passed. Lucy died. It involved the Daleks and a banana. Much to the Doctor's surprise, the Master mourned her passing.

The two of them got drunk together in a wake. Neither of them remembered what happened next. They woke up in the dressing room naked with the vague recollection of a long conversation about ducks.

Of course, things were different after that.

Then Captain Jack Harkness joking suggested that they have a kid. They took him up on it. No one needed to get pregnant. Technology was available for them to create a child from two men. At the Master's instance they used one of Lucy's eggs.

And thus Jackie was grown in a jar. It was a very sophisticated high tech jar. But still a jar.

The Doctor kept the jar in a box with photos of Jackie in the jar.

Occasionally he and the Master would look through the photos while Jackie slept.
