Summary:Take one uneasy threesome, two inexplicably deserted ships, one immortal's mysterious past, and a rip in space and time. Shake well and step back quickly.

Review: I've loved this fic for ages. These days the enjoyment is tiny bit hampered by the fact that this was written in the really early days of River Song canon - right after she met the Tenth Doctor and viewers where with the mystery of who she was exactly. So part of what is mentioned here of her backstory is jossed now. But it's minor details.

This still is an absolutely nice read with an interesting time travel adventure plot, Jack and River trapped in a time loop and an answer to the mystery of Jack's two lost years of memory. The romance plot is also very well done, with a threesome who are in love, but not exactly on common ground. Jack is the focus point for most of the insecurities, but River's also come to light and their complicated relationship with the Doctor is nicely developed.
