Jack was used to snow. He was accustomed to the month of December transforming the island into a wintery wonderland. This was a whole different animal, though. The island itself was gone. It had taken a bit of exploring but Jack had seen enough landmarks and sculptures in parks to realize this wasn't just a city- this was London. London during the reign of Victoria. It was crowded and close and it seemed there were extra people, but he could only just see them. They clearly weren't new people who he could meet and get to know.

It was bizarre.

That morning he'd woken up early, made Logan breakfast, and then got his husband to agree to some exploring Dressed well for the weather, Jack took Logan out and they headed down the streets. There were homes and there were parks and there were shops to see. Candy, clothes, ladies' amusements. It was fantastic.

"A hat shop," Jack said brightly. "Let's go in. We should both get hats."

He was just so excited to experience everything that it was hard to deny him.

"Do we even have money for hats?" Logan asked with a laugh, catching Jack's hand with his own and holding on lightly.

It wasn't as good as their usual winters- but Logan was almost grateful for the change. It would have been hard to get through his first winter without Joe if it had been the same as always.

"There's no money. I'm going to guess we can just take a hat we like," Jack said. "It's not exactly stealing. I've seen other people doing it."

In fact, there was no place to pay when they went inside. Just hats on display and hat boxes stacked up almost to the ceiling. Jack was overwhelmed a little.

"It's been years since I've done anything like shopping. Real shopping."

"Yeah? Ditto, man. I used to love hitting the mall and stuff," Logan admitted, picking up a big feathered hat that was clearly intended for women. He put it on and started to bat his eyes at the other man with a grin.

"Do I look pretty, Captain?"

"You look beautiful. Now if I could just get you into a corset and bloomers," Jack teased. His idea of fooling around was taking up a pith helmet and putting it on.

"What about this? Does it go with my side burns?" Side burns that consisted of three days of not shaving. They weren't remotely impressive, they just made him look scruffy.

"It's definitely a look," Logan laughed, lifting his own hat off and reaching for another.

He grabbed a top hat and checked himself out in the mirror. "check it out. I'm a gentleman," he grinned, tipping his hat a little.

"That actually looks good," Jack said. Logan actually looked really good in the high collars and trim coats. His topcoat fit perfectly. The top hat was the perfect finishing touch.

Jack grabbed a bowler hat instead. It wasn't flattering.

"What about this one?"

Date: 2011-12-04 02:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] echolls-cursed.livejournal.com
"Let's trade," Logan suggested, offering Jack the top hat so he could try the bowler.

"I think you'd look better in the top hat."

"You know what we should find? A bakery. I bet there's a bakery that has things the island doesn't normally have," he said, trading Logan so he could try on the top hat. It fit well and looked much better than the bowler.

"We could spend the whole day out and about," he continued. "Maybe we could find something for the nursery. Or our bedroom."

He knew what he wanted. He'd love a real glass lamp and some fuel for it. He'd always loved a low steady flame for light. It sounded silly though and he didn't want Logan to think he'd lost his mind. He'd just been denied this particular pleasure for so long.

"You think it's all stick around after the island changes back?" Logan asked curiously, as if the other man would know.

"Shopping and food sounds like a plan though," he said, putting the bowler on his head. "That's something we never get to do."

Jack looked at Logan in that hat and had to smile. He looked like a prize fighter the way he wore it at a jaunty angle.

"I don't know if it'll stay, but we can enjoy it for now," he replied. His hat felt secure on his head so he decided to move in. He caught Logan's face lightly and kissed him.

"That hat looks good. The top hat looked good, too. Or maybe you should get a John Bull..."

He looked around and found the hat with a short crown that looked sort of like the top hat he had on. He offered it to Logan and thought he would look fantastic in that one.

"Tell me about the mall," he prompted.

Date: 2011-12-04 03:41 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] echolls-cursed.livejournal.com
Logan got lost in the kiss, and by the timeit was finished he didn't care about the hat at all. He'd wear anything Jack suggested.

"Huh? Oh, the mall. Yeah, we used to skip school and go shopping sometimes when the waves sucked," Logan explained. "We'd shoplift and hang out in the food court."

"The thing I love the most about you is your juvenile delinquency," Jack teased. He adjusted the new black hat on Logan's head and nodded.

"You look gorgeous. High class," he said affectionately. "Come on, let's go find something interesting. Something strictly ornamental. The Victorians were good at ornamental."

He caught Logan's hand to lead him out of the shop, the bowler and the feathered number left behind. Next door was a clock shop and Jack stopped to look in the windows. It was funny...there was still no need to know the exact time on the island, even if it was suddenly London.

Logan, however, was distracted by a jeweler on the corner.

"Hey, let's go check that out," he suggested. "We'll get you some cufflinks or whatever. Maybe find some fancy stuff. Then maybe we can get some clothes... have a date," he suggested casually.

Date: 2011-12-04 04:09 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] captainjack.livejournal.com
"You want to get me jewelry?" Jack asked, positively beaming. "Let's. This is...yeah. This is the best day I've had in a while. You're always my best days."

As soon as he said it he decided that even though it was true, it sounded foolish. Jack cleared his throat, ducked his chin, and started walking.

Date: 2011-12-04 04:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] echolls-cursed.livejournal.com
Logan hesitated, and then shrugged. "You're my best days too," he admitted, catching Jack's hand again and staying close as they walked.

"I love you, Captain Jack Harkness," he said, putting it out there simply because it was true.

Date: 2011-12-04 04:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] captainjack.livejournal.com
Jack looked over at him. He knew every day that he was in love with Logan but there were times like now when he felt completely and totally...smitten.

"I love you too, Logan Echolls Harkness," he replied. His fingers tightened and he pulled Logan to a stop so he could kiss him soundly in front of a toy shop window that was decorated for Christmas. Little wooden soldiers and china dolls were witness to the public display of affection.

"I love you so much."

Date: 2011-12-04 04:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] echolls-cursed.livejournal.com
Logan slipped his arms around Jack again and held him close. He held on like he never wanted to let go- and the truth was, some days he didn't.

It was moments like this that made him realize how broken and lost he'd be if the island ever took jack away from him.

Date: 2011-12-04 04:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] captainjack.livejournal.com
He kissed Logan until he was breathless and then pulled away a little.

"You need to shave," he chuckled softly. He didn't let go. Holding Logan close was all he wanted...well, not all he wanted.

"We need to quit this if we're going to spend the day shopping and eating. You make me want to drag you back to that fantastic bed of ours."

Date: 2011-12-04 04:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] echolls-cursed.livejournal.com
"You say that like you think it'll make me stop," Logan snorted, kissing him again, and then letting him go.

"Fine, come on," he smirked, tugging Jack into the jewelry shop. "Shopping now, sex later."

Date: 2011-12-04 04:42 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] captainjack.livejournal.com
"Promise?" Jack teased. He trailed along happily and held the door for Logan.

The jewelry shop was fantastic. Jack looked in the cases at the jewels and gems and gold and silver. He was busy looking at rings and ear bobs, he hadn't even gotten to men's jewelry.

"This stuff is beautiful."

Date: 2011-12-04 04:51 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] echolls-cursed.livejournal.com
"It's definitely shiny," Logan replied, looking at a necklace and then wandering deeper into the shop.

Come look at these," he said, picking up a tiny trinket box and showing it to Jack. "It's so small. Is it for pills or something?"

He paused and perked up as he thought about something. "Can we get pills now? Like, have you seem a pharmacy or something? They had good shit back in the day, right? Like cocaine and whatever."

Not that Logan would ever use cocaine. Even with Joe gone, he'd never... Or maybe he would. Maybe it would be a way of feeling more connected to the other man.

Curiously, he glanced at Jack.

Date: 2011-12-04 04:57 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] captainjack.livejournal.com
"We could find a chemist, I'm sure. They'd have all kinds of things. Cocaine. Laudanum. You want to get a little high? They're supposed to be medicinal," he chuckled. Like he'd ever tell Logan he shouldn't or couldn't. If he wanted to then now was the time. Now before the baby came.

Date: 2011-12-04 05:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] echolls-cursed.livejournal.com
"I just thought maybe it would be fun," Logan shrugged, pocketing one of the boxes and making his way over to Jack.

Date: 2011-12-04 05:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] captainjack.livejournal.com
"It's been ages since I had any laudanum," he said casually. "And I never had cause to try cocaine, but there's something kind of like it on Godrialoracnim Prime. I was really up. Not up, just...up. It was a synthetic mood enhancer. That was a long time ago."

He was just chatting, giving Logan more details from his past. He didn't think of stories like that normally, but when something came up he would always be honest with Logan about his past.

Date: 2011-12-04 05:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] echolls-cursed.livejournal.com
"Oh. Well, if you're gonna get high, I should probably take a pass. One of us should be sober or whatever," Logan replied, being reluctantly responsible as he picked up a pair of gold cufflinks.

"You'd suit these," he added, holding them up in show.
