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

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: Ianto's Diary
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: All That We See
Author: [livejournal.com profile] erin_giles
Genre: Angst, Dream fic,
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Sometimes a dream is just a dream
Status: Oneshot
Length: ~2,600
Warnings: Jack/OFC, post COE, (
Comment or Excerpt from fic: In the interests of full disclosure, yes I did beta this fic but I would have reccomened this fic had I come across it any other way.

This beautiful story is about Jack dreaming of all the people he lost during Series 2 and 3 of Torchwood. [livejournal.com profile] erin_giles' character voices are spot on and I could see all of this as I read it. The first time I read this fic I started crying about half-way through and by the time I got to the end I could barely see what I was reading.

This fic broke my heart, and breaks it again every time I re-read it, but it was bloody worth it.

Title: To Do List
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nancybrown
Rating: PG
Warnings: It would be in your keyboard's best interests to not be eating or drinking while reading this fic.
Status: Complete
Length: ~1000 words
Summary: "To Do: (slang) 1. n. time management list for organisational purposes. 2. n. a commotion, fuss, or quarrel."
Commentary: Well, who doesn't want to watch Lois and Ianto interact? And by interact, of course, I mean manage the management of Torchwood... once they stop fighting over whose turf is where. Fluffy, cracky, and just generally feel-good, this fic is sure to leave you with a smile on your face.

Title: World Enough, and Time
Author: [livejournal.com profile] soraismus
Genre: angst, romance, mystery
Rating: PG
Length: ~2,400
Status: Complete
Warnings: Character death of the only sort of temporary kind.
Summary: A man gets so many chances.
Commentary: If you take a look at the tags, you'll notice that we at [community profile] janto_recshave this thing about giving Ianto more time. We make him immortal. We make him a timelord. We have him die of old age, or at least in his thirties. World Enough, and Time is a sweet little piece that plays with the idea of Ianto returning again and again. As [personal profile] taffimaisaid in the comments, "For a story that had Ianto die about fifteen times, this is really adorable."
Excerpt: Jack's died ten thousand times; he's only lived once. As far as he knows, as far as he's ever experienced, only one of those things makes him different from every other human.

Those of you who also frequent [livejournal.com profile] torchwood_house  might notice that every so often, they'll have a themed rec list: they'll point you the direction of the community's recs and then step back to let you speak up.

So, we're going to take a page out of their book and do the same thing, for post Children of Earth fics.

So, bring out your dead. And your denial. The fics that made you cry one last time, or somehow managed to make you smile, and maybe just made it easier to take another half-step towards dealing with everything you felt after watching series three.

We've got the a post-season-3 tag which will link you to all the recs already made. Let's add to the list. Comment with your favorite post-CoE fics here.

Length: Oneshot
Warnings: Spoilers for Children Of Earth
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Jack gets naked in public. I know what you're thinking, but sex is not the case. It's gorgeously written, the imagery is superb and the feel of it is just... guh. Jack getting naked isn't what it's always been, it means so much more. It plays a great part on Jack and Ianto's relationship here.
This fic is poignant, heartbreaking. You'll feel for Jack in this one.

I'm new and this is my first time reccing, but I read this fic and I really loved it. I told my friend about it, and she told be about this community, so I decided to share it with you all. Hope I recced correctly! -Rebeca

Title: Give Me Pain if That's What's Real
Author: [livejournal.com profile] baka_sensei
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: When Even The Ashes Have Faded Away
Author: [livejournal.com profile] holdingoff
Genre: Gen
Rating: PG-13
Summary: He lets the grey show in his hair now. Each decade it slowly creeps back from his temples, around his ears to salt the waves of deep brown.
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Warnings: Coda, Children of Earth
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."


Title: The Haunting of Woman Wept
Author: [livejournal.com profile] holdingoff
Genre: Gen
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Sequel to When Even The Ashes Have Faded Away. Woman Wept had been a beautiful planet. The single landmass suggested the image of a grieving woman, hence its name.
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Warnings: Coda, Children of Earth
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.

"I carve his words into the caves because they were private. No one enters the caves except me, so they are still private and they'll be here forever. Even after the universe is nothing more than darkness and ice, his words will still be there- only the ice."

Title
: From Here to There and Back Again with You
Author[personal profile] blue_fjords  
Genre: Post COE "fix-it fic", sort of.
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Takes place post-Children of Earth.
Status: One shot.
Length: approx 10,300
Warnings: Spoilers for CoE.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Without giving too much away, I chose this bit.
 
 
"You accepted me without reservation but still had the guts to stand up to me when I was wrong.” He smiled humorlessly. “You had to do a lot of standing. But you, Ianto,” and he risked opening his eyes, “you always forgave me. You always eased the load.” Ianto’s eyes were hot and damp, but he didn’t look away as Jack’s voice dropped to a whisper. “And I needed you.”

 
Why I've recced it? 
It's a post-CoE fic, sort of "fix-it fic", but not quite. You're going to laugh and cry reading this.
This is a very satisfying and believable story. The fandom needed this, after CoE. And it's written by [personal profile] blue_fjords  whose writing is always amazing.

(headdesk) Apparently putting a link in is a good idea...perhaps it was a deliberate mistake, to whet your appetites, yes, that's it!

Title: Following Orpheus
Author: capedcrusader92
Rating: PG 13
genre: Post COE fix-it fic
Summary: The end is where we start from.
Status: one shot
Length: approx 8,700
Warnings: Spoilers for Children of Earth
Comment or Excerpt from fic:

"He sits there for a moment, getting his breath back, and tries to figure out what is going on. He doesn’t know how he came to be here and he realises, with a frisson of panic, that he can’t remember his name.

He looks down at himself, hoping for clues, but there is nothing. A bit of self-examination reveals some pretty impressive bruising on his torso and what feels like a cut over his right cheekbone, but none of it triggers any memories. He can feel a few faint scars under his fingertips – one on his leg and another on his neck, just under his chin – but he can’t think of what could have caused them."

Why I've recced it? Because I just felt so good after reading it. It's just such a good look at how things could easily have played out in the 6+ months after Children of Earth

Before I cut, I'd like to remind y'all that if you're looking for a specific genre of fic, the tag system may be of use to you. Spoilers beneath the cut.
