Comment or Excerpt from fic:
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: 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: 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.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] szm
Rating: PG-15
Genre: Angst, Character Study
Status: Complete
Length: One-shot
Warnings: Character death, post-CoE
Spoilers: Through CoE
Summary: Jack finds and continues with Ianto's diary.
Commentary: This is one of the first post-CoE stories I read, and among the first to be written. It's angry, and greiving- and, as it's written from Jack's perspective, it rings completely true.

Title: Ring-a-Ring o' Roses
Author[personal profile] azure_chaos 
Genre: Apocalyptic, angst, non-canon compliant
Summary: Jack always thought that the biggest threat to Earth was external. That’s why he policed the rift and watched Britain’s borders for alien threats. Unfortunately, no one saw this one coming from the inside. With almost the entire population of the world seemingly wiped out Jack discovers a surprise survivor. But if the apocalypse itself was bad, Jack knows that it’s really just the beginning and he will do anything to protect those he cares about.
Status: Complete
Length: Six Chapters + prologue, epilogue
Warnings: Action, Allusion to D/s, minor character death (no major character death).
Comment or Experpt from fic: This fic goes completely AU, ignoring the events of Exit Wounds and Children of Earth, Tosh and Owen are present. Rhys and Andy are included as well.

Title: Go Away A Little Closer
Author: [personal profile] blackbird_song
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Domestic, Angst, Humor, Men *eyeroll*
Warnings: Don't drink and read. Your keyboard will thank you.
Summary: A hard day brings strife, understanding, and a proposition or two for the future.
Commentary: This is a story where Jack and Ianto get domestic. So domestic, they even buy a house together, and there is talk of marriage. It's also a story where Jack dresses up in Wolverine pyjamas, Blowfish are sort of annoying, and Jack fails at marriage proposals. Do you need to hear more?

Well, then, how about this? There's a sequel, Time Stands Still is when the CP actually (sort of) happens, and is every bit a hilarious and awkward and full of crossed wires and random Torchwood-style craziness as, despite themselves, Jack and Ianto figure out how to live with each other.

Title: The Epitaph

Genre: Angst
Rating: G
Summary: Many years in the future, Jack visits Ianto's grave.
Status: Complete
Length: 894 words
Warnings: Character Death (very past tense)
Comment: You've all heard "the end is where we start from". What you may not have heard is another line from Little Gidding T.S. Eliot penned: "Every poem an epitaph". That is the line that came to me while reading this fic. For something so short, it packs a lot of punch. There's an awful lot of sorrow and grief; there's also acceptance, and grace. There's beauty. I could go on and on about how powerfully touching this fic is until my commentary was longer than it was, but essentially, the reason I found this so memorable is because it's a memorial. Not only to Ianto, but to everything we saw between him and Jack.

Title: Give Me Pain if That's What's Real

Genre: Angst, Fix!It fic
Rating: Up to NC-17
Summary: I know I should be working on Revelations. However, first I had to exorcise the demon of CoE, and man, what a bitch of a demon it was. Ambiguous-fix!it fic. Title and some inspiration taken from Next to Normal. Remember Head!Six from Battlestar Galactica? Yeah, it's kind of like that.
Status: Complete
Length: ~12,00 words, 2 parts
Warnings: Series 3 spoilers
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is an amazing fic that takes place about a thousand or so years from the end of series 3. It's a pretty amazing exploration of the Jack/Ianto connection and, for being as short as it is, delves deeply into the mind of Jack Harkness when it comes to relationships and more specifically his relationship with Ianto. It will make you laugh, cry and all sorts of other things simultaneously.

Title: Hourglass
Author: Lazuli Kat
Genre: Drama, Angst, Hurt/Comfort
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Death is not the only form of loss.
Status: Complete
Length: Very long
Warning: Mental illness, character death
Comment: What if John Hart were exactly the sort of man everyone thought he was when he first appeared? What if Grey somehow got free in the Hub? What if after being buried alive, Jack came back with something? And how, on top of recovering from Tosh and Owen's death's, would Gwen and Ianto cope?

This is an AU after Series Two ended, and there is a very strong sense of "the end is where we start from" throughout this fic- the sense that despite all of Torchwood's losses, they'll somehow be able to recover. There is a plot, but most of the action centers around Jack and Ianto, and I think you'll find it a very satisfying read.

Title: 25 Things Ianto Has Done and Is Capable of Doing Again
Author: [livejournal.com profile] strangecreatureand [livejournal.com profile] shinodabear
Genre: Character Study
Rating: PG-13
Summary: The authors like to joke about their wildly differing views on Mr Ianto Jones. But if they were to both write up lists of '25 Things Ianto Has Done and is Capable of Doing Again', they probably wouldn't be very different at all.
Status: Complete
Length: Two Parts, A and B
Warnings: All standard Torchwood ones
Comment: Ianto has- and likely always will be- the unique status of being a man with a mysterious past. Just as often as we have speculated about Jack's background, we have speculated about Ianto's- if not more so. These two pieces are a good way to illustrate why that is- because although we might argee on a few broader points, very little else is nailed down.

Title: Nortorious
Author: [livejournal.com profile] blue_fjords
Genre: Action/Adventure, Suspense, Thriller
Rating: NC-17
Summary: An homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious, 1940s melodrama/suspense. Ianto goes undercover. Jack reacts.
Status: Complete
Length: 12,000 words in two parts
Warnings: Ianto/OFC
Comment: Ianto is remarkable for many reasons, but one thing that has always stood out in the minds of many fans is how easily he was able to con his way into a position in Torchwood Three- as well as a position in Jack's life. He conned the con-man, and that takes skills. This fic is wonderful because it not only showcases those skills, but Jack's reactions to watching someone else succumb to them.
Excerpt from fic:
“This castle is quite lovely, though I imagine it would be extremely hard to heat in the winter, what with all of the concealed nooks and crannies,” she said.

How subtle, Jack’s voice sounded in his ear. “It is, at that. Still, we wouldn’t want our Castle any other way, I’m sure. Ianto Jones,” he proffered his hand. “I’m with the Welsh Tourism Board.”

She laughed a little tinkly laugh and took his hand. “Alexandra Sebastian. I dabble in antiques – restoration, procurement, that sort of thing.” Her hand was soft but her grip was hard.

Title: Adam

Genre: Mystery/Angst
Rating: ranges from PG to R
Summary: "No one knows what happened to the real Ianto Jones."
Status: Complete
Length: Six chapters
Warnings:
Despite the title, NOT a spoilerfic for "Adam."  Reference to "Ghost Machine."  R-rating on some chapters due to violence.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This fic is actually an expansion of a chilling ficlet [personal profile] invisible_lift posted while working on "A Hatful of Hollow." For a fairly simple premise, there's quite a lot going on here.  You get glimpses of the mundane (for Torchwood, anyway) daily tasks at the hub, friendships among the team, and a very dark Jack indeed.  Link at the top takes you to the 1st chapter; one below brings you to all six.

Jack kissed him gently, almost tentatively, letting his tongue dart in to taste but not to explore. It was a delicate, light sort of touching, but surprisingly pleasant. Ianto was seriously considering leaving the scanning equipment where it was and suggesting they make use of the boardroom table immediately when he felt something cold and hard pressed against the side of his head and heard a metallic click.

“Where is he?” Jack growled against his mouth.

Title: Drug!Ianto 'Verse
Author:  [livejournal.com profile] skellerbvvt 
Genre:  angst, power struggle, dark, drama, humor
Rating:  NC-17
Summary: Ianto is the bait and the trap, Torchwood's last defense against the Time Lord threat
Status: Incomplete, Series
Warnings: Everything. No, really. Everything. See tags for more info.
Comment: There aren't really the words for how disturbed this fic is. No, really, there are none. The TARDIS is sociopathic. Jack is broken. The Master is manic. The Doctor is manic. And Ianto is the drug they're all addicted to. And yet- you can't look away. You can't help but laugh. And you're never sure which way this fic will go. The fic itself is as addicting as Ianto.

The first part is Trapped Inside With You. Proceed with caution.

Genre:  backstory, angst, drama, ect
Rating:  NC-17
Summary: All relationships have their stages and their first moments
Status: Incomplete, looooong
Warnings: Sex, domestic abuse, suicide attempts
Comment: This isn't the sort of background I normally buy for Ianto, but the details and emotions are so vivid here that it's hard not to buy it. The story is shaping up to be complicated and full of interesting interactions between Jack and Ianto, some of which looks like it has/is going to involve a sort of time travel. Updates are long in coming, but seeing as the length of each section is ridiculous, I'm not going to complain too much.

Excerpt:
For two years Ianto has been doing his best to forget, to bury the memories. And now, if Harkness does turn out to want what Oliver wanted…It won’t be the same, he tells himself firmly. Won’t be trapped. Won’t be a prisoner this time. As soon as she’s better, we’ll leave. Slowly, his hands stop shaking. Lisa, he reminds himself. It’s for Lisa. Whatever it takes, remember? Doesn’t matter what it costs. You can handle it. It’s for her. But he feels so cold.

Other/Implied Pairings: Owen/Tosh, Jack/Doctor (kind of one-sided), Martha/Doctor (also a tad one-sided), Master/Jack (noncon)
Summary: The Year-That-Never-Was left open wounds. Healing them would take time. But of course, they had time
Status: WIP
Length: Multipart
Word Count: Ongoing
Warnings: non-con, character death, suicide, mental illness, torture
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Many, many people comment on the lack of focus Torchwood hason Jack's recovery from what was probably a not-too-pleasant experience, not to mention repairing his relationship with the Doctor, who was outright mean to Jack for the first two episodes of the Master arc. Most of these people focus on his recovery in the context of Torchwood Season Two, in codas for KKBB, Meat, and Exit Wounds. But Otrame takes a different spin- after all, the TARDIS is a time travel machine. Martha, Jack, and the Doctor could have taken a trip or two in between the Master's death and Jack choosing the return to his team in Cardiff. This explores how the four of them (Martha, Jack, the Doctor, and the TARDIS) would heal in this situation. Combined with some frankly brilliant theories about what, exactly, the Time Agency did this is something I'd highly recommend for anyone who is a fan of dark fics. One word of caution- although she updates fairly regularly, this is a WIP, and they are all still very broken, although Jack does seem to have the worst of it right now.

Memories are just stray neuro-chemical pulses in the matrix of my brain, and if a Time Lord can’t control a few stray neuro-chemical pulses in his own brain… But of course I can. I can allow a few to remain. Just enough so I know what happened. Put the rest in deep storage, only called up when absolutely necessary. And I refuse to believe that there will ever be a time I need to remember

Jack, sitting in an enormous puddle of blood holding a corpse in his arms. The blood has clotted, the serum separated and spread out from the original stain on the floor. The thinner places have already dried; the corpse is ice cold. Jack’s eyes are dead.

….

You start here. The universe is this way. Reset all variables to current conditions. The past is not a real thing. You are alive, in a healthy body. Your TARDIS is healing. You can go on from here.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I’m sure there are a few Janto crazy people out there that wish that “KKBB” went a tad bit differently - *coughespeciallyJackandGwenscenecough*. So, imagine my happiness when I could add another version of canon KKBB to my collection! A little angst & hurt/comfort, some Gwen-bashing mixed together and topped with a nice dose of romance and smut! ^_________^

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack Harkness had never been categorized as a coward before. He’d sometimes been selfish, almost certainly been vengeful - for those who deserved it. You could also say he’s been downright cruel at times but he’d never been as cowardly as he was right now.

Hey, kids. Did you miss me?

Silence... His team said nothing, just looked at him, various expressions of shock on their faces. Except for one.

No, Ianto had always been very careful at keeping his emotions in check. Something came into his eyes... but before Jack could decipher it, it was gone. Jack kept his grin firmly in place, not letting the fact that his heart was doing flip-flops at the bottom of his stomach... He could deal with their anger over leaving them without a word... deal with their rejection even…all but one.

Rating: NC-17
Summary: Magic is just a different sort of science
Status: Complete
Length: 30 chapters
Warnings: Ianto/Lisa, slightly weird familial relationships, but other than that you're in for a wonderful ride
Comment: This is AMAZING like you wouldn't believe- tailor!Ianto and uberpowerfulMage!Ianto and jealous!Jack and all sorts of wonderful, wonderful things like that. It features characters from Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures as well as the entire cast of Torchwood- even PC Andy makes an apperance as an adorkable kid in the last chapter. The format is wonderful as well- each chapter opens with a quote from the series, which perfectly, and sometimes hilariously, sets the tone for the chapter.Everything a Torchwood AU should be, this is a fic you really don't want to miss out on.

It's the simple things, the little moments that can completely throw your life off the course it's firmly been set on.

For Ianto Jones, it had been something as simple as offering help with a stubborn horse.

This is an emotionally tortured!Ianto fic that is just so beautifully written. It goes something like...

Comment or Excerpt from fic: So much happening and so many emotions - what a ride! This is a fast-paced and plotty fic where Ianto's kidnapped by someone and surprisingly, it's not anyone from Jack's past for once. Hurt!Ianto and angry!Jack are a given, but Tosh has an important role and is on the forefront (FINALLY!). So it's a race against time to find Ianto and save him, but unfortunately, the demand is for something that Jack doesn't have anymore.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

The waterfront restaurant was the ideal place for a date, a fact that hadn’t gone unnoticed if the happy couples crowded inside were anything to go by... and he knew that they were watching him... For all of them, however, the situation was perfectly clear: Captain Jack Harkness, intergalactic Casanova, had been stood up. It certainly wasn’t the first time... but Jack had never expected Ianto to punish him, humiliate him, quite so publicly... Jack would have never called Ianto... cruel... He... pulled his greatcoat on, already striding... in the direction of Ianto’s house. He wanted answers and... he wasn’t prepared to leave Ianto alone until he had them...

Jack... hammered on Ianto’s front door... not caring that he was making a scene... until it occurred to him that Ianto’s silence was uncharacteristic... The spark of worry flared into a flame and he began to dig around in his pocket for the bunch of keys... He stepped into the hall, eyes widening in horror as he looked around.
