A/N: Thanks to aurilly for the beta! Also, I hope you don’t mind that August is the main OUAT character here. I know you didn’t mention him in your sign up but this idea’s appealed to me for a while – he was kind of the obvious person for a reunion with Jack.

Summary: Jack is surprised to receive a letter from an old friend summoning him to his sickbed. He hasn’t seen August Booth since they spent a few days together in Phuket, and can’t understand why he’s contacting him now. But he wouldn’t believe August even if he told him. Desperate to convince Emma to believe in the curse, August needs help from the one person he knows who’s always determined to fix things: Jack Shephard.
