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."

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

Title: Heaven in Hell's Demesne
Author: [livejournal.com profile] crystalfic
Genre: Angst, hurt/comfort
Rating: PG-13
Status: Complete
Length: ~800 words
Warnings: Torture, violence
Summary: Sometimes, all it takes to call you back from a nightmare is a familiar voice.
Commentary: Anyone who takes a good look at my recs can tell that I am a sucker for fics dealing with the YTNW. This is a short fic, and it deals with many the familiar tropes of the subgenre, but with such wonderful characterizations that I couldn't help but bookmark it. Jack's humor, Ianto's understated care, it all shines through with perfect clarity.

Title: Flotsam and Jetsam
Author: [livejournal.com profile] adina_atl 
Genre:  angst, romance
Rating:  PG-13
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: 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.

Title: Conversations with the Dead
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dune_drd
Genre: Angst, episode related
Rating: Slight PG for mentions of torture and death
Summary: Post The Sound of Drums fic set during the year that never was.
Status: complete
Length: 4297
Warnings: torture, death

Commentary: Very strong in character fic set during The Year That Never Was with a mentally unravelling Jack being kept company by a ghostly Ianto. I loved that the auhor keeps it suitably ambiguous as to whether Ianto is truly a ghost or simply a creation of Jack's psyche sent to comfort him and the time motif is cleverly used - at first Jack clings to the ticking clock as a means of marking time and staying sane, then it begins to be another means to torture him until finally he fears time itself.

Strong fic with a melancholy feel but a very sweet and satisfying resolution.

Title: Repair In Route 
Author: Otrame
Genre: Angst, Dark, Drama, Hurt/Comfort
Rating: NC-17
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.

Title: Things Rank and Gross Possess It Merely
Author: [livejournal.com profile] garnettrees 
Summary: "'Tis an unweeded garden
That grows to seed. Things rank and gross in nature
Possess it merely."
-Hamlet, Act I, Scene II
Other Characters/Pairings: Tish's POV; some implied Gwen/Rhys and Owen/Diane
Warnings: Character death, implied rape, torture, unwanted groping
Status: WIP
Length: 2/5 parts posted
Commentary: Yes, I have a thing for fics which take place in the Year That Never Was. And this is an amazing example of what can be done with all the implied darkness that happened during that nonexistant period of time. Using Tish as the narrator works especially well here; we feel her suffering, both as Martha's sister and the person who was hired to stand there and look pretty. She also has the dubious position as one of the people who cleans up the Master's shit, which normally includes body parts. It's haunting and creepy, and written in an almost surreal style, which has the overall effect of making it very easy for the reader to feel just as sleep-deprived and hopeless as poor Tish.
And, of course, it's not like Jack's having a fun time either... )

Title: Perfect
Pairings: Jack/Ianto: Owen/Ianto friendship: implied Owen/Tosh: implied Gwen/Jack (unrequited/not acted upon): team love (of the platonic kind)
Genre: Fluff, mild angst, fluff
Rating: M for swearing. Lots and lots of swearing. Not bad swearing. Mostly pissed (drunk, if you're an American) swearing.
Spoilers: All of S1, first ep of S2 but selectively. This sort of AUs away simply in that in trying to write fluff, I wrote a sitcom. Dr Who: Last of the Time Lords and surrounding eps. I have made some assumptions about the TW team's ability to contact people and be contacted. Spoilers for the name of the guy at TW2.
Precis: When Jack died, they splintered. When he left, they drew together. Friday night drinks at Ianto's before and after the end of the human race.
Commentary: [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill 's stuff is always a joy to read, and this fic is no exception. The very idea of the team going over to Ianto's to drink and watch him be drunk is cracktastic, yet none of the team are OOC, even when Ianto and Owen end up in the same bed. You will laugh throughout the entire fic, I promise you.
Exerpt: “Your problem,” said Owen, tapping his fingers against the tiles. “Is that you’re too thin. We need to feed you up and then you’ll hold your piss better.”

“My problem,” said Ianto, miserably. “Is that I drank nearly an entire bottle of bourbon on my own.”

Word Count: TBC

Comment or Excerpt from fic: WOW! This fic is just WOW! Having not watched even an episode of Doctor Who (though I'm, more or less, aware of the events), I can tell that this is a very, very dark take on what-has-been and how-it-could-have-gone...

I don't recommend this for the faint of heart, because sometimes... most of the time, it just gets very...



'I bring life.'..

It was with a gasp, Jack Harkness returned to life, to awareness. He staggered to his feet, shaking fists up already because his last memory was…


Jack could hear its hum, like a beacon. He was about to call out to the doctor and froze at the end of the hallway. Stunned, Jack watched the TARDIS fade until the last sight he saw was its blue police siren light twirling, twirling until even that was gone.
