Characters: Donna Noble, Jack Harkness

A/N: This is a bidding incentive fic, written for the September Support Stacie Auction.  Wendymr and the consortium known as the Shadow Proclamation gave me this prompt:
Donna/Jack, lust.

I noticed him the instant he entered the cafe. (Gramps said I've been ill, but I didn't go blind. Those blue eyes and dark lashes... yumm!) He spilled my coffee, apologised, and bought me a fresh cup. The rest was history. We meet most nights after work for drinks. I'd invite him home if I lived alone.

Honesty in relationships is important. I ought to confess that the drug he's been slipping into my drinks did the trick: my memory has returned, my head hasn't exploded. Maybe I won't mention that it happened immediately after that first cup of coffee...

Yay! Not my OTP, but I like it. It's got a happy ending. :)

How long's the auction going on? I'm one broke grad student until finaid comes.

Thanks!

The auction is going well. As of last night, totals were up to $17,231.22. DW/TW authors accounted for $4,197.98 of that. These are only interim numbers, since the auction doesn't end until Monday night.

Broke grad student... I remember those days well. at the end of the month, we used to check under the sofa cushions for change, to see if we could afford pizza.

Cool! Was going to light a candle for her at the St. Peregrine shrine at my parish, but there wasn't a spare candle.

Ugh, I know the spare change thing well. I'm decent at budgeting, so I've got enough for food and rent until finaid comes, but...not a heck of a lot else.

You can do it next week. The auction will be over, but Stacie will still be in need of support -- of all kinds.

OK! If you don't think she'd mind.

I don't know Stacie, even online. She's part of Roswell fandom, and that where the auctions started. I have no idea what her religious beliefs may be, but the Support Stacie website does say "please keep Stacie in your thoughts and prayers!" If you feel inclined to do so, I say, go for it.

Thank you. I can only take part of the credit -- it's not a pair I would have written without that prompt.

Nice. :) For some reason, Gramps said I've been ill, but I didn't go blind really struck me as humorous. :)

Since I intended it as humorous, I'm glad it struck you that way. :-)
