A Pair of Dungarees, and a Blue Tshirt by CakiieBakiie
Chapter 1: Prologue
Author's Notes: Betad by the lovely thought_grenade (:

‘And don’t come back until you get it!’ Captain Jack, conman come time traveler, was pushed out into the dusty street of Dantyl armed with nothing but the information “it looks like a magnified caterpillar.”

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem, simply find the humongous caterpillar, go back to the TARDIS and Bob's your uncle. But not on Dantly. Dantyl was the home of caterpillars and you had every size, shape and type of caterpillar that you ever thought was possible. Which meant it was virtually impossible for him to find the right caterpillar with the right information about where on Earth the Horgrans and taken Princess Jeril of the Forty Fifth Frokas Class.

Jack sighed. This was going to be a long day. He started to make his way across to a nearby market stall, intending to grill the owner on where he might possibly find this over grown caterpillar; however, halfway there, he was nearly run down by something that was most definitely not a caterpillar. Instead, he found himself facing what looked to be an eightish year old human child. Or at least, she looked human. But, before he got a proper look at her, she was off again, scampering through the crowd like a bee in a field full of poppies. Picking himself up off the ground, he started to make his way over to his chosen destination, only to be nearly run down by what looked like a human male.

‘Hi, sorry, Jack. No time to explain. Need to go chasing after her before she causes some major destruction. Babysit this one for me. I’ll be back later!’ he yelled over his shoulder as he careened in the vague direction the young girl had gone to.
Five seconds later he was back. ‘One last thing. I know perfectly well there is a Rose Tyler in that TARDIS. And don’t ask how, I just do. Very important. Do not let her touch the baby. At all. Not even a hair on his pretty little head. And actually, best not let the Doctor in there touch him as well. Just you. Got it? Good.’

And then he was off.

And that was how Captain Jack was left with a young boy dressed in a small pair of dungarees and a blue t-shirt.
