Characters: Jack, Vincent/Vanessa
Notes: Written for tw100. Challenge-Cardiff Police. Thanks to filthgoblin for beta, hand-holding, title assistance, etc.
Warnings: This fic deals with transgender issues as referenced in the Torchwood episode Greeks Bearing Gifts. I feel I'm writing it consistent with the tone used in the episode, which I understand is problematic for some people. Please read at your own risk for triggering or offense.
Summary: Jack's spent some time on the force.
Vincent was his partner during a stint with the Cardiff Police.
Torchwood had suspected that the department was being infiltrated by aliens and sent Jack to investigate.
He’d thought Vincent might be from another planet, simply because he seemed so uncomfortable with the most basic human contact, from a friendly shoulder punch to Jack’s standard flirting.
Then Vanessa came back and all was made clear. Vince had only been an alien in his own body, and now Vanessa could be the person and the policewoman she’d always wanted to.
And, Jack thought, he might just have a chance with her.
