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... )

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is a deceptively fluffy little fic.  The premise is light and frothy, and perhaps more in keeping with the spirit of DW than Torchwood, but Ianto's concern and dedication are spot on for his character.  Overall, a charming, uplifting oneshot with a surprisingly well-developed alien world.  Based on a blink-and-you'll-miss-it line in one of the entries on the official site as backup for "A Day in the Death."

Summary: "I'm having lunch with Alice today," Jack says, fastening his cufflinks.
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Warnings: Spoilers for Series 3. If you are staying unspoiled, don't read it.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: I love how silent this story is, and it mostly in dialogue. A conversation between Jack and Ianto about her, if you don't know who she is already. Also talks about Jack not aging, which I found really lovely. If you're looking for a break from the smut and the angst and the fluff, here's a general Jack and Ianto for you, the kind I love. Not that all the others aren't good, it's just that I've already got past all that stuff. I know they have sex, they've had their angst, now I just like the general Jack/Ianto. This fic is set in Series 3 I think and we already know Jack/Ianto are together in it. There are no kisses to indicate they are and if you didn't already know they were in a relationship, you'd feel it. It's like it's just there. Okay then. Now i'm just not making sense.

"You always take this conversation so well," he says. It's ridiculously obvious that he's unhappy.

Ianto shrugs. "What am I supposed to do, exactly?"

"Be disturbed," Jack offers lightly, in a way that Ianto thinks is vastly cruel and unfair to all concerned.

"Sorry," he says, keeping his eyes on the road, "no interest in contributing to the family drama."

"No. Of course not. Always so calm, so even, our Ianto."

Ianto snorts. "We both know that's not true."

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.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I have an unhealthy obsession with Smoking!Ianto. Yes, Ianto does smoke here. I don't want to put anything that gives the fic away. You just have to read it. This fic is one of my favorites atm. It doesn't have any kisses, teasing, sex and all that. Just talking and smoking which also goes for Jack. The ending is lovely. Anyways, here's the excerpt:

Ianto set his elbows on the boards around the rink. A group of teenage girls in shiny, puffy coats shrieked by, clinging to each other and drawing less attention than they wanted.

“Torchwood.”

“Ah.” Jack stubbed the cigarette out on the edge of the board. “Torchwood and I are a package deal.”

“I know.”

Comment or Excerpt from fic: … And I say, that is QUITE a feat! *nods at the summary* But then again, we know that Ianto’s very versatile! *grins* So sickeningly cute and fluffy!

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack was bored.

In fact, he was more than bored, he was practically catatonic. He was also painfully aware that today was the day for stock taking – a day... on due to copious amounts of calls from Whitehall about expenses – and he hated it.

Ianto had already shoved a huge pile of paperwork... and he was almost three quarters of the way through.

It had taken him a good three hours to get that far.

If Ianto had been with him, he would’ve pointed out that Jack hadn’t actually spent two of those hours in his office, but the captain would’ve countered that it was still looming over him, so it still counted… Sadly, Ianto wasn’t up in the main area… so… the particularly amusing conversation that had panned out... hadn’t happened.

He sighed heavily and twisted his pen through his fingers, leaning his chin on his free hand.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I do so adore fics where Janto are doing something domestic and this is no different! And the images of Ianto trying on a new suit is just a bonus! *grins*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto glanced around... instinctively looking for Jack. The Captain had opted to wait outside the shop, already bored by shopping, as Ianto had known he would be. Quite why Jack had wanted to come in the first place had confused Ianto, but he wasn’t one to argue when Jack wanted to spend time with him.

He spotted Jack a couple of shops away, hands in his pockets, head tilted to one side, as if he was contemplating something in one of the windows. Smiling to himself, he shifted the weight of the shopping bags in his hands and went to stand beside Jack.

There was a sarcastic quip on his lips as he approached, but it was forgotten as he saw what Jack was staring at. A three-piece suit hung on one of the mannequins, black, with a crimson lining that matched the tie knotted around the neck. It was a well-tailored suit and Ianto was certain that it would have a price tag to reflect that.

Jack drank his shot and winced as it burned his throat. It was the sixth he’d consumed and it still burned. It doesn’t get better, he thought morosely, it never fucking gets better. But this was his nights off now. Trolling around in pubs instead of spending his time at home…the home he could no longer bear to step into.

He held up his glass to signal the bartender, then noticed someone looking at him from across the bar. A woman, blonde, smiling at him. She was obviously drunk, but fuck it all, she was cute and Jack needed…he knew what he needed, but he wasn’t going to get that so this woman would have to do.

He approached her, “Hi, I’m…Chris.” Not Jack. She wouldn’t say it right. “You...live around here?” a crap chat-up line he knows, but she doesn’t seem to care. Jack knows how that feels.

EXCERPT:

Something had been off all day, Jack was telling himself it was all in the mind as no one else in the hub seemed to be experiencing the same thing. He kept seeing things just out the corner of his eye that was gone when he looked around and the little hairs on the back of his neck could be lying to him, couldn't they when they stood on end?

Once the others had left for the night and Jack was alone the feeling he was being watched grew, he had scoured the whole hub via the CCTV and in person and found nothing. Bloody Halloween he muttered to himself as he turned off the lights and slid down the ladder into his small room beneath his office, not expecting to come face to face with a ghost.

EXCERPT:

Jack was sat on Ianto’s... couch, Ianto’s head in his lap as Jack lavished attention on him. He was doing ordinary Friday night couple-y things and for once Jack had no desire for excitement and adventure. He found some days he craved this... the mundane... He loved the excitement... the thrill... the running... But... that wasn’t enough anymore, and he realised something quite suddenly.

“When did we become something more than a quick fumble in row M of the archives?” Jack mused aloud. He waited... watching the steady rise and fall of Ianto’s chest… “Oh, Ianto Jones.” Jack sighed wistfully… “Some days I don’t know what I’d do without you.” Jack smiled fondly… gaze… solely on Ianto… “That’s what I love about you... You’re always there no matter what... You make everything more bearable... by just being you... You make forever more bearable… I’m a changed man because of you Ianto Jones... Changed for the better.”

“IANTO!!!”

The scream echoed round the small chamber that passed for Jack’s bedroom. Looking up from where he was currently dressing – in the process of fastening his tie - Ianto quirked an eyebrow and sauntered over to the door that led to the small bathroom.

Leaning against the doorframe, he asked dryly, “You yelled?”

“Look!” exclaimed Jack turning round to at him, “Look!” he pointed...

When Ianto just looked blankly... for a moment then burst out laughing.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto jumped slightly when he heard the door to his flat open unexpectedly... Relief washed over him as he recognised the familiar sound of heavy boots being kicked off by the door. He let out a small chuckle... He held his book still as he listened to Jack’s footsteps pad through to the living room, pause, and return to the hall.

“Ianto?” he heard the familiar voice call... The bathroom door pushed open to reveal Jack smiling the patented Harkness grin... “... And look how I’ve found you! What you up to all wet and naked in there, Mr Jones?”

Ianto rolled his eyes and set his book on the floor beside of the bath until he got some peace and quiet... “Clearly, I’m taking a bath, Jack...” Ianto sighed, and not the good kind of sigh that he usually found escaping his lips when content in a warm bath, “... I’m trying to relax.”

Jack’s face broke into a grin.
