Pairings Jack/Ianto

Comment: This is incredibly beautiful, and so well written. [livejournal.com profile] legibleflowers always writes beautifully and this is no exception. It's set in Pete's world, the AU from Dr Who, and features those characters, including a wonderfully drawn Rose, and AU Doctor. There is some mpreg in here, but even if you normally don't like it, give it a chance, as this story is set in an AU where sexuality and pregnancy are very different to ours, so it works perfectly in that context.

Rating:  NC-17

Length: 3
Warnings:
Violent Imagery, Sex, Torture, Implications of Stockholm Syndrome
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Probably my second all-time favourite Jack/Ianto fic, teetering right on the edge of being my favourite. It's marvelously dark and chilling, while still being beautiful. The style is brilliant and it's a very enchanting read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone so long as they're not adverse to violence and dark fics.

Warnings: Various shades of dub-con, non-descriptive mentions of sex trafficking, character death. I am operating under the assumption that John Hart is Captain Bad Touch, and so should you for the duration of this story.
Comment or Excerpt from fic:  This is Post CoE, and my personal canon of what happened because hellooo, Ianto is alive and there's accidental time travel! Heartbreaking in the best possible way, and there's also a happy ending after all the angst. *teary eyes*

Warnings: Author's warning and notes (very long, but the author thought they were necessary, so I'll put them here): Read more... )

Comment or Excerpt from fic: A wonderful, wonderful fic that began as a ten page one-shot, and grew out of control, according to the author. It charts Jack and Ianto's relationship, and their reactions to events on the show, as well as adding a few interesting side adventures for them to have. It contains a few cliches, as the author warns, but they are built into the story, and form valid plot points rather than just being cliches. It is very well researched, contains the occasional reference, and has solid characterization throughout. AND it gets Myfanwy's gender right ... you'll see what I mean. There is so much I love about this fic.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is a brilliant fic that is recc'd at [livejournal.com profile] longliveianto  where I first found it, and I thought it should go here, as it gives us so much hope after the disaster that was the-series-that-shall-not-be-named. This is another fic that could be classed as canon if people wanted it to, in the words of the Doctor "Time can be rewritten."

Excerpt:
The man who shouldn’t be looked up through eyes that were nearly swollen shut at the man who wasn’t a man, smiled a smile that could only be described as ‘terrifying’ and shouted, “Doctor!  What brings you here?  No, wait let me guess.  Um - Daleks?  No, no we got all of those.  Cybermen?  No, the last of those died when we killed Y-Ianto’s girlfriend.” The Doctor could hear the slight stutter even through the slurring and wondered what had happened before Jack went on. “No, no, no!  I’ve got it!  The 456, are they back?  Do you want to know how I did it?  Or did someone tell you what I did and you’ve come to put me down?” The Doctor flinched.

At this last, the Doctor saw Jack’s eyes light up with a kind of horrifying hope.  The Doctor realized that Jack was in worse shape than he thought if he believed for an instant that the Time Lord would actually kill him.

This is one awesome story, read this if you love stories where Ianto lives :D

AU, Romance, WW2, Action, Drama
Rating:
PG - NC17
Summary:
Disgraced American pilot Captain Jack Harkness starts again in a new country and a new service but will a young sonar operator make things easier or harder for Jack?
Status:
Complete
Length:
15 Chapters + Prologue and Epilogue (38,315 Words)
Warnings:
Brief mention of Jack/OFC (and suggested Jack/OFC/OMC) and Ianto/Lisa
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Very good AU that has nothing to do with Torchwood with a mortal Jack and Ianto in the second world war in a Royal Navy Submarine, you can imagine what happens lol. It's well written and has good pace, there's no rushing into things :). This is one of my favourite WW2 Jack/Ianto stories :D

Excerpt:

He shrugged on the coat that had been hanging over his arm - no-one would see it was an Air Force coat in the dark - and tugged the warm comforting material around him.  Sadly this would have to go into storage at his lodging house with most of the rest of his things; he’d miss the coat, it was almost like it was a part of him.  Taking one last glance at his new charge he turned and left the docks behind him.  He rounded the corner of one of the cargo units, head bowed against the wind; and impacted with something warm and solid.

 

Glancing up, he was just in time to see a figure step round him with a clear “Sorry, Sir” before the figure was swallowed up by the darkness out towards the harbour.  He’d barely seen the man, nothing really but shadow; yet still he was left with the lingering impression of blue grey eyes and a muttered ‘Like the coat’.

 

There's also a PDF version of this story if you would prefer it: Here.

Rec: Driving Captain Harkness by tanarian

Title: DRIVING CAPTAIN HARKNESS
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tanarian
Genre: AU
Rating: R/NC-17 overall
Summary: Jack Harkness knew Torchwood House held secrets but he didn’t realise that there was also a treasure there, as well.
Status: WIP
Length: 2 Chapters so far
Comment or Excerpt from fic: By the lovely [livejournal.com profile] tanarian , that should be all you need to know that the fic is going to be goood! :D

“Captain Harkness?”

Jack stared at the man who had seemingly materialised in front of him. Young and darkly handsome and dressed in what Jack quickly realised was a grey chauffeur’s uniform, complete with perfectly arranged hat and gloves; he presented an image that did serious things to Jack’s libido. “That’s me,” he confirmed with an easy grin. “I take it you’re here to take me for a ride?”

An eyebrow was raised and there was just the smallest quirk to the other’s lips. Very kissable lips, Jack was quick to note. “If by that you mean take you back to the House, sir, then I would agree. The car is this way.”

Rec: A Taste of Midnight

Title: A Taste of Midnight
Author: [livejournal.com profile] toestastegood
Genre: Action, Romance, Vampire!Ianto
Rating: R
Summary: An alien attack, a new stalker for Jack and an assault on a vital employee leaves the Torchwood team with a fresh set of problems – especially when Ianto begins to develop a taste for human blood.
Status: Complete
Length: 6 Chapters
Comment or Excerpt from fic:

Jack didn't bother to contradict her, instead becoming distracted when his headset demanded his attention. A simple press of a button and he'd answered the call. "Yeah?"

He wasn't sure what he'd been expecting: Ianto calling to say he was bored, Owen calling to demand food, or Tosh to say she'd finished her reports. Something bland. Something neutral.

Instead, Tosh's stressed voice flooded into his ear. "Jack? It's Ianto – something's happened to him, I don't know what. I think he's hurt."

That was all he had to hear before he was drawing his gun and heading for the door: rushing to the rescue.

Rec: Alive by nixa_jane


Title: Alive
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nixa_jane
Genre: Angst, Romance
Rating: PG
Summary: Jack came back soaked to the skin.
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Comment or Excerpt from fic:

Jack's got a heartbeat just like anyone else. Ianto can hear it when he gets this close, just below the surface, steady as anything. It's kind of like the click click click of a stopwatch. Ianto finds it comforting.

"Wake up," Ianto says.

Jack doesn't wake up, which is odd, because Jack doesn't sleep. Ianto's never seen him sleep, not in all the time he's worked for him. Jack says he doesn't need it and Ianto believes him. He always believes him.

This is a story that kinda makes CoE worth it :/, and that's hard for me to say because I'm a denier of CoE. This isn't a CoE fix-it, but it's as close as possible to one. This is really good, I'm totally hooked, I'm always anxiously awaiting updates :D

Title: Night Monsters
Author: [livejournal.com profile] qthelights
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Public drunken sex
Genre: Smut, PWP
Summary: The night isn't only for monsters. Shameless pwp.
Commentary: This fic is wonderful. It's convincing, it's humor-tinted, it's hot. It's a showcase of a Jack and Ianto who are very much comfortable with each other. It's a stolen moment between two men who don't get such things often enough. And... why are you still here?

And now for something completely different

Title: 10 Songs Ianto Jones Never Wants To Hear Again
Author: [livejournal.com profile] pinkfairy727
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Don't run with scissors.
Genre: Fluff, humor, romance
Summary: Check tin label.
Commentary: This fic is adorable. I want to hug it and smoosh it and call it George. On a slightly more serious note, this is a fic that takes an idea that can easily end in something trite and adds depth to it. Some of these songs he avoids out of embarassment, other because of the paiful memories they remind him of; other, are merely annoying in and of themselves. My favorite is number seven, but each of these songs has something to offer.

Title: Love the Coat
Author: [livejournal.com profile] erin_giles
Genre: Angst, romance, angst
Rating: PG
Warnings: character death, not graphic, but not temporary either
Summary: Five drabbles that depict five times Ianto Jones slept with Jack Harkness' coat. Mostly angsty.
Commentary: I first clicked on this fic after reading the title, which was something of a mistake on my part. If you only read the title, you see, you expect crack of the fluffy variety, but instead, you might end up crying only a little at the end.

Title: Losing Ianto
Author: Otrame ([livejournal.com profile] otrame)
Genre: Angst, hurt/comfort, romance
Warnings: Medical details, character death
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Ianto is desperately ill, but not even Doctor Owen Harper can figure out what is wrong or how to save Ianto. And Jack.
Commentary: [livejournal.com profile] otrameis someone whose fic stays over on Teaspoon, but is known there for writing some of the best romances. Part of the reason is her Jack is such a lover: he loves the Doctor, he loves Tosh, he loves Owen, he loves Gwen, and he loves Ianto, and each love is unique and not necessarily sexual. But, for the most part, her stories aren't fluff; they tend towards the dark side, and this particular one is no exception. Ianto is sick, dying, and no one is sure of the cause or the cure. This situation taxes Owen as a doctor, Jack as a lover, and Ianto as a person facing difficult choices to make- and there's more at stake here than his own life...

Title: Protective Aggression
Author: [livejournal.com profile] emily_sheppard
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Smut, Character Study, Introspection
Warnings: Violent sex, elements of D/s
Status: Complete
Length: One-shot
Summary: A soldier never comes out of a war unscathed and Jack's trained Ianto to be one almost to perfection.
Commentary: This fic hits pretty much all of my fic kinks: it touches on Ianto's ruthless side, on his loyalty, and on how much Torchwood can take from a person- without killing them. Told from Jack's perspective, this story is more than a bit on the dark side, and ends on a slightly uncomfortable note, with the feeling the however much they lean on each other, something could pull the rug out from under them at any moment.

Title: Guard Them, and Him Within
Author: [livejournal.com profile] etharei
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Angst, Drama, Mystery, Time Travel
Warnings: ANGST, Violence
Status: Complete
Length: 38,000
Summary: Ianto Jones finds himself far from home. But there are guns, aliens, and more Strange Happenings than one can shake a stick at, so sometimes it’s like he hasn’t left. Of stories within stories, and the adventures of small characters.
Commentary: Ianto is transported 1,000 years into the future, where Jack is the Captain of a military base no one wants. I won't spoil you, but I have to say, for a fic written before CoE, it speaks to one of fandom's current big fears; the earlier chapters might be hard to read for this reason, but if you stick it out, you'll find it well worth the effort.

Title: Let Me Kill You Sweetheart
Author: [livejournal.com profile] blackbird_song
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Angst, romance, hurt/comfort
Status: Complete
Length: ~9000 words
Summary: Ianto gets a case of 'flu that forces him to explore the way that he interacts with life, all very much against his will.
Commentary: Oh, alien viruses, how strange can you get? The short answer is "very". The long answer... takes over 9,000 words to accurate describe.

This story is largely about Ianto's struggle to deal with the effects of the virus, but through his befuddled eyes we also get the story of Jack dealing with a virus which inevitably ends in tears.
