 Hey All,

Here's a question, especially if you are familiar with/have watched Torchwood.

The other day, I was listening to The Divine Comedy (Purgatorio specifically) while I walked (gotta love librivox.org and free public domain audiobooks) and got an image of Captain Jack Harkness shamelessly flirting with souls on their way to heaven. 

SO. Anyone have any idea why (by all that is holy, unholy, alien, transdimensional, lucky, unlucky, literary or weird) Captain Jack Harkness would be leading Dante through the circles of Hell and Purgatory? Because I kinda want to write it but can't quite get it to make sense in my head...

When he died as the Face Of Boe, he didn't die, because he is a singularity and can't die, but was merely displaced. To Purgatory/Hell.

*stares in delighted amazement at the screen*

I. Love. You!

That's...so appropriate both to Jack and to Virgil-in-Limbo parallels....*pieces are starting to fall into place in head*

Seeing as you have found the ULTIMATE Divine Comedy/Torchwood idea of WIN, what is your opinion on Beatrice and Dante? Do they remain themselves, or...hmmmm.

Maybe I need to finish Purgatorio before I make a decision about that, because it all depends on what happens when Dante gets to heaven...

*SUPERHUG FOR IDEA OF WIN*

Because, I was already thinking "Yo, Jack can't die, so no wonder he can pass through all these different level of the afterlife" but it NEVER occured to me that he DID eventually "die" so could...get stuff. SO MUCH SENSE.

Theres a Torchwood/SPN/DrWho(10th)-Crossoverfic out there with Dean and Cas making out at one point. Its from before the fifth SPN-Season I think. It isnt as awesome as your stuff but when I originally found it, I liked it. In the end there are some weaknesses but maybe you can find a bit inspiration there. So here's the first of eleven parts: http://ravengrimm.livejournal.com/3866.html

Thank you for the recc (and the compliment!) I'm always up for good fic and it would be good to refresh my view of Torchwood (and with SPN no less, win!)
