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?

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...

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.

Summary: Basically, Jack and Owen have a conversation.
Commentary: Don't let the summary fool you; this fic continues long after the conversation between Owen and Jack is over, both chronologically and narratively. It's starts with one question Owen asks, and it takes a while for Jack to find an answer to it. In the meantime, Torchwood marches on, the world nearly ends a few times, and through it all, Jack wonders.

Comment: This is shameless PWP, as much about fun and affection between the two men as it is about the level of trust playing with these kinks like this necessitates. On a more personal note, I've always liked the idea of Dom!Ianto, and who doesn't like Jack's gun?

Comment or Excerpt from fic: It is beautiful. That's all i'm saying because I don't want to give too much away. It helps, in a way and it fills in some plot holes.

"I don't want to be frozen like the others. I'd prefer to be cremated if possible."

Jack quickly sat up, pushing away from the other man, "Why's that?"

Ianto's eyes reflected the scant light in the room, "I don't want you living with ghosts. Ashes can't haunt you, Jack."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I actually like this one better. I just love what Jack does in it. This part broke my heart to bits.

Summary: Jack discovers that he can't just take up where he left off.
Status: Oneshot, Complete
Warnings: Flashbacks to torture
Comment:Jack has a fair bit of issues to work out after returning, something which we only got hints and glimmers of during series two. Plenty of extremely talented authors have gone about working this through against the backdrop of the earlier portion of the series, as well as working through the notion of that first date Jack and Ianto had. She does and wonder, lovely, haunting job of weaving them both through the first four episodes of Torchwood.

Title: First Time for Everything
Author:  [livejournal.com profile] criccieth 
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.

Title: Anodyne
Author:  os4a2no9
Genre:  Closest to hurt/comfort, but that's not quite right
Rating:  NC-17
Summary: "Ianto’s numb, and he likes it that way"
Status: Complete, 2335 words
Warnings: Sex and heartbreak
Comment: Set post Cyberwoman and Countrcide, Ianto is trying to come to terms with losing his girlfriend *and* nearly being eaten by cannibals. This fic is one of the few that I have read that actually explores how horrific and traumatic this would be for Ianto and appreciates what anyone would have to do to stay sane. Really heartbreaking and genuine with some Jack and Ianto soapy shower fun thrown in there too. Best fic I have read this year so far [and believe me, I don't get out much].

"Time passed in Torchwood as time always did: noisily, messily, and with a great deal of shouting. He was numb to most of it."

Word count: ~9200 - split into two parts by LJ claiming it's too big. Sigh.
Timeline: Set during ‘Small Worlds’, no spoilers past that.

Summary: An alternative take on the events in ‘Small Worlds’, from the point of view of someone who knows the fairies intimately.

Title: The World’s More Full of Weeping
Author: sparking_off

Rating: K+
Word count: 5779
Timeline: Set in the time between ‘Greeks Bearing Gifts’ and ‘Out of Time’, although there’s no reference to ‘They Keep Killing Suzie’.
Characters: Ianto-centric, Jack/Ianto
Summary: Ten years after the death of Ianto’s mother, he returns to her childhood home to say goodbye and to be himself, away from the dangers and secrecy of Torchwood, and away from the confusion that is his relationship with Jack.

Commentary: The idea of Ianto as one of the fairies' Choosen Ones isn't something new in fandom. What is new is the idea of Ianto as a fairy- a fairy lord, even. sparking_off's Ianto is a comflicted fellow, stranding between two very different worlds, both a which are frightening in their own way, not in the least because he loves them both. The writing style itself is very subtle and soothing, and sometimes nonlinear as well, as Ianto deals with the effects of things which to the reader have no cause. If you're a fan of strong Ianto or romantic Janto, this is a story for you.

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.

Summary: John Ellis explores Torchwood.
Status: COMPLETE
Length: One-shot
Word Count: 1,406
Warnings: spoilers for Torchwood 1x10 “Out of Time,” Homophobia
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well now, this is a bit different from the usually written fics based on TW episode 1x10 (Out of Time). Rather than being a coda, it takes place somewhere in the middle of the episode, most likely before John goes to see his aged son and loses all hope of fitting into this strange future. It is fully from John’s POV and his helplessness is already evident.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He wandered around the Hub, exploring. A severed hand: how disgusting. Many things he could not identify. Metal, stone, mysterious goo in glass dishes. A morgue, kept locked. Computers everywhere, but he couldn't see many books. How could they trust the computers? How could they give the machines such power over them? They didn't seem to notice, or care. There was too much glass - was it safe? How did they keep the place warm and lit? It must be a colossal use of power, of expenditure, of waste.

He was worrying too much, but he couldn't let go… He wandered on. He wanted to escape, but how can you escape a time? You can only escape a place. Everywhere he went, he was still caught in this inexplicable future.

He'd never thought it would be like this.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Oh GOD! SO MANY ANGSTY FICS! T____T But, there’s hope yet since this fic starts out angsty, but ends on a hopeful tone (if one doesn’t think about all that happens the rest of S1, anyway… *coughs*). So, this is the author’s take on how Janto relationship changed through the course of S1 (atleast until after “Countrycide”).

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack had never felt as used as he had in the beginning of his relationship with Ianto. The occasional shag without any promise of a repeat, with absolutely no emotional attachment.

Of course, he didn’t realise why until later, and by the time he did, he didn’t begrudge Ianto because of it. The young man had been in emotional turmoil - every second of the day that he was alive and sane was a blessing. His mind tore him in two and his heart just made the fight worse.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well, we move away from the angst-fest of the last few days to something more fluffy!... Well, fluffier than the previous ones. Fic based on the “Sleeper” episode from TW S2. Taking place from the moment Jack, Beth, and Gwen comeback after stopping the last sleeper agent at the military base and goes from there to post-“Sleeper.” Slightly angst, but it’s fluffy and romantic with a dash of Gwen-bashing and a whole lotta smut! *grins*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto pulled the SUV door open, catching Jack’s limp body... and… debated what to do. Jack needed to be comfortable but there was no way to carry him down to his bunker. Unbuckling Jack’s seatbelt, he lifted... to get Jack stretched out across the back seat. The greatcoat had a tear... but nothing he couldn’t fix. He took off the greatcoat, tossing it over the front seat and cursed. Jack’s light blue shirt was blood soaked.

He shook his head. “You covered it with your coat, you twpsyn, why didn’t you let me know?” he muttered. He deftly undid the buttons of Jack’s shirt, revealing the blood soaked undershirt and a gaping wound... He lifted Jack’s head and slid into the seat, cradling him in his lap... “I wish you would’ve told me, we could’ve talked on the comms. You know I hate when you die on your own... But I’m here now...”

A few minutes passed and the silence was deafening.

Dee Laytner-MacLean looked out the window of the St. David’s Hotel, gazing out at Cardiff Bay, wondering once again how he got talked into this vacation.

He remembered their vacation to England, long ago... Now two years later... Dee balked when the UK came up again... and... As Dee lay in the bed... he cursed that he still could not shake the feeling of something about to go horribly wrong.

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.
