 Prologue – Jack Harkness and John Hart


  Jack Harkness and John Hart were best friends, but they hadn’t always been. When the Harkness family had first moved to the UK, Jack and John had been mortal enemies. Although John was curious about his new American classmate, Jack had opened up their relationship by playing a spectacular prank on the first day of Primary School.  

They spent the next few years exchanging tricks and glares as the rest of the class looked on in awe. It wasn’t until Year 5 - when John’s father was admitted to the hospital for a massive heart attack - that they exchanged their first kind words.  

It was Wednesday lunchtime at school when Jack walked past the back entrance of the building and found John sitting dejectedly on the steps. Always looking for a reason to taunt and tease the other boy, Jack had approached with only malice in mind. Upon seeing the faint tear tracks on the other boy’s cheeks, however, upon catching sight of the faint tear tracks on John’s face, Jack’s snide remark had died on his tongue, leaving a throb of pity in its wake. Teasing was all but forgotten as two boys, who had been enemies for years, became properly acquainted.  

From that day on, Jack Harkness and John Hart were inseparable.  
By the time Secondary School came around, it was obvious that the two were destined for popularity.   Although they had always been cute kids, Jack and John had grown into their looks and became, as any girl in their year would say, ‘bloody gorgeous’.  

Any baby-fat in John’s face had faded away leaving him with high, defined cheekbones that every boy coveted. He was to dye his hair any number of colours in an act of rebellion - currently going through a phase of bright, white-blonde, which he slicked back with gel.  

Jack, on the other hand, preferred to leave his hair its natural dark brown. Only John knew just how much time it took for Jack to style his hair so that it flopped almost carelessly over his forehead. This, coupled with his bright blue eyes, made the girls swoon.  

Both boys’ appeal was only heightened by their affinity for sports. Co-captains of the cricket team, Jack and John were the star batter and bowler, respectively. Oftentimes as they walked through the halls at school, cries of “Oh captain, my captain!” echoed in their wake.  

The two entered Barrowman Secondary School at the top of the popularity food chain and never left. They had everything they would ever want within their grasp. Little did Jack know that the arrival of a new student would make their last year a lot more interesting.
