Intersecting Geodesics
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nancybrown
Genre: Action, Romance, Time Travel!
Rating: R (language, situations, violence)
Spoilers: up through CoE, brief mentions of events from "Pack Animals," "Almost Perfect" and "Lost Souls"
Summary: Stuck in the wrong time with a Jack who hasn't met him yet, all Ianto really wants is a way home.
Status: Complete
Length/WC: 36,000 overall
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*

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: 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.
Excerpt:Of course, there's sex too... )

Title: And You Will Know Her By The Smile In Her Eyes
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gilascave
Genre: Romance, family, angst, AU
Rating: PG-15
Length: 21,500 words
Status: Complete
Warning: MPreg
Comment: There's something about this fic that stuck with me. Maybe it was the underlying message at the end of the fic that Ianto and Jack were very similar people after all. Maybe it's the way Ianto pragmatically and stoically tries to regulate his emotions and behavior. Maybe it's the sneaky bit of implied Doctor/Master slash. Probably, it's the fact that this fic is just plain adorable. So, read and enjoy. This is comfort food fic at it's best.

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.

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: And Indeed There Will Be Time
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kaydeefalls
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Mystery
Rating: R
Summary: In 1919, Harriet Derbyshire was killed while investigating the disappearance of Torchwood Four in Dublin. In 2009, UNIT pulls a dying man out of the Irish Sea with a one-word message: Torchwood. Martha joins up with Jack's team in Cardiff to track down the errant branch of the organization – before a time-traveling race of aliens can change the course of history as we know it.
Status: Complete
Length: 43,000 words
Warnings: None
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is an amazing story. The plot is a wonderfully twisty time-travel mystery, with aliens and paradoxes and cross-time clues. All the characters are really well-done, and especially Martha and Mickey get a chance to shine. The author does a really good job guiding the reader through the complex plot and has also created some truly spectacular original characters. It's also a marvelous Jack/Ianto story, showing their relationship as strong and trusting. One of the best all-around pieces of Torchwood fan fiction I've read.

Title: Torchwood One Archive
Author: James aka [livejournal.com profile] zortified (Writing journal: [livejournal.com profile] gilascave)
Genre: Angst, Drama, Crossover
Rating: PG-15
Summary: Jack has returned to Torchwood and to Ianto. Ianto is determined to make the best of it but he knows it won't last forever. Their time together threatens to get even shorter when the Doctor shows up unexpectedly.
Status: Complete
Length: 11,500 words
Warnings: None
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is a good, solid, plotty story. The characters are well-done, and I was especially pleased to see Jack and Ianto interacting like the emotionally awkward men they both are, and equally pleased to see them acting so physically comfortable with each other. Theirs is an odd and difficult relationship to capture, and I think this story does it very well. In addition, the story itself is interesting and engaging and has a fascinating premise. It's also the kind of story that you'll really want to read twice, just to admire the new layers of meaning that show up on the second read. Really well done.

Summary: Ianto and Tosh have been kidnapped. This is how they cope.
Warnings: Imprisonment
Commentary: There is something horrfyingly hilarious about his fic. On the one hand, there is nothing funny about being in a confined space for a long period of time. On the other hand, getting just a bit too comfotrable with your cellmate can be kind of funny. Jack's observations at the end are both touching and utterly Jack, and the punchline with have you laughing on the floor.

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: 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: Get Jones
Author: [personal profile] valderys
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 5,342
Notes: AU for the Age of Steel Whoniverse, this is just one take on what other paths Ianto and Jack may have taken :)
Summary: JACK: Ianto Jones, born August 19th 1983. Able student but not exceptional, one minor conviction for shoplifting in your teens. But what if crime had suited Ianto?
Commentary: What if, indeed? This is an amazing, noir-esque story about a Ianto who manages to still be the loyal, stubborn, intelligent man we've all come to know and love, even as he steals from alt!Torchwood. His meeting with Jack (presumably not immortal and still a Time Agent) and subsequent moments are well-done and just plain fun to read.  
Excerpt: “What,” Ianto snarls, teeth grinding, “The bloody fuck do you think you’re doing?”

And the man laughs. “I’m robbing you, of course. What does it look like? Nice move, by the way.”

American accent. Ianto stares, not letting his arm waver, disbelief warring with fury. “And what makes you think I’m going to let that happen?”

“You’ve got no choice?”

Ianto cocks his head and raises an eyebrow. The man’s arm isn’t wavering either, and he’s pointing an old-fashioned handgun, a Webley, Ianto thinks, of all things, right at Ianto’s forehead. It crosses his mind that an old-fashioned gun like that might be slower than his own, although, probably, unfortunately, not slow enough.

“No chance,” he says, and knows it to be true. He doesn’t want to die in such a pointless encounter, but he will, if he has to. The goods are important enough for that.

Title: Come Away, Oh Human Child
Author: sparking_off
Rating: T
Word count: ~9200 - split into two parts by LJ claiming it's too big. Sigh.
Timeline: Set during ‘Small Worlds’, no spoilers past that.
Characters: Ianto-centric, Jack/Ianto.
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.

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.

EXCERPT:

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.

What the hell am I doing in the UK again for a vacation? Dee thought.

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:

His hands grabbed the railing tightly when he watched Jack put the young man down and they shared another passionate kiss. His eyes started to burn again, when he saw the loving smile Ianto gave Jack. The tears were falling freely when he saw Ianto open his mouth.

“I love you,” he whispered in time with Ianto.

His heart broke when he watched the happy couple enter the tourist office. He didn’t have to follow them to remember what happened next.

He stood at the railing and looked out over the bay, the tears running down his face. His knuckles were white from gripping the railing so hard and he felt as if something had ripped a piece from his heart... but he... glanced back to the now closed door of the tourist office and smiled. This Jack had one hell of a time before him. And he would visit day after day of that ride.
