The different levels of things: why I (mostly!) retcon Jack is the Face of Boe.
Note: I wrote this a couple of weeks ago when I had no net, I'm just getting around to posting it now.

This sort of post is what happens when I have a couple of weeks off the internet. I get thinking and I get typing. You guys should see the fics I've been writing. Not much good and unfinished but a hell of a lot of stuff! Anyway, to the point of the post: when I first watched Last of the Time Lords the main emotion I came away with was disappointment. Like a lot of people in the fandom, I'd gone in with high expectations (Utopia and The Sound of Drums are two of my all time favourites) and LotTL just seemed to fall short. The strongest emotion I got from the episode was the utter shock and horror of Jack's last minute.

On rewatch I've found the whole episode (and serial) comes together and is a lot better. There are still plot holes you could drive a TARDIS through but I found myself enjoying it more. That and I knew what to expect from Jack and could pretty much continue to retcon it. But I've had time to let it sink in and think about it properly as well as the consequences of it.

And this post is hopefully going to contain coherent ish thoughts on where the revelation feels right and where it feels wrong.

Here's the restCollapse )

In conclusion:
No matter how much I like it emotionally, the logical inconsistencies are more than enough even without my other issues with it. I've pretty much decided to ignore it and I'm hoping it's never mentioned against. Unless in the context of:

Doctor: Are you really the Face of Boe? Really?
Jack: Right, that's it, we've got to get Rose back from the parallel universe right now. She owes me a tenner. She reckoned you weren't *that* gullible.

the episode that does not exist:


Great idea for a community, and I fully agree that Jack is NOT The Face of Boe!

The Jack Thing...
Been thinking about it a lot lately, and wound up making a stupidly long entry in my journal thingy just now. Long and the short of it is, I've been letting this get to me since last Saturday, and it's time to try to get it all sorted in my head and move on.

Fake cut to my journal

Read it, ignore it, agree with it, disagree with it. I'm just trying to marshall my thoughts and lingering befuddlements, and show why I think Jack will always be Jack. For better or for worse. And, of course, for considerable naughtiness. ;)

Long live Jack. :)

Pairing: Ten/Jack
Rating: G
Summary: "He bumped into Jack again in the year 3 billion something-or-other." Set some time after the finale.

( follow me to my journal )
11:03 am
Imagine if everyone Jack's ever fucked found out [bare with me, stretch the mind, accept unthinkable - be RTD!]he turned into a big ugly head in a Jar in the end.
If they all found out at the same time, that dry heave of billions, the planets will shake, think of the consequences...

Also Jacks fascination with the doctors hand in the jar.. jack, its going a bit too far with 'i love you, i want to be like you', isn't it?

come on everyone! lets all think 'Jack is not face of boe' all at the same time and maybe it will come true and we'll never remember it ever happening.

Why didn't I post this sooner?
Okay, I shared my theory with apollymi yesterday (so easy to share theories when you can turn to the person and say 'hey, wanna hear a theory?'...) but thought I'd throw it out here as well.

Let's just say, at some point while Jack was traveling with Rose and the Doctor, she brought up that she had met an alien head-in-a-jar named the Face of Boe. Jack mentions to her (and only her) that he was born in the Boeshane Peninsula and that he has also met the Face of Boe through some media-hype thing. Rose laughingly calls Jack "the Face of Boeshane" then gets it into her head to make a bet with him that he can't make the Doctor believe that he (pretty Jack) is, was, or will ever be the Face of Boe. Jack, being Jack, takes her up on the bet but before he can do anything they get transmatted to the GamesStation and... well, yeah.

However, Jack has now followed through on that bet and has won. Unfortunately, there is no way he can ever get that ten quid Rose owes him now.
