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...

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.

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.

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.

Title: Adam
Author: [personal profile] invisible_lift 
Genre: Mystery/Angst
Rating: ranges from PG to R
Summary: "No one knows what happened to the real Ianto Jones."
Status: Complete
Length: Six chapters
Warnings:
Despite the title, NOT a spoilerfic for "Adam."  Reference to "Ghost Machine."  R-rating on some chapters due to violence.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This fic is actually an expansion of a chilling ficlet [personal profile] invisible_lift posted while working on "A Hatful of Hollow." For a fairly simple premise, there's quite a lot going on here.  You get glimpses of the mundane (for Torchwood, anyway) daily tasks at the hub, friendships among the team, and a very dark Jack indeed.  Link at the top takes you to the 1st chapter; one below brings you to all six.

Jack kissed him gently, almost tentatively, letting his tongue dart in to taste but not to explore. It was a delicate, light sort of touching, but surprisingly pleasant. Ianto was seriously considering leaving the scanning equipment where it was and suggesting they make use of the boardroom table immediately when he felt something cold and hard pressed against the side of his head and heard a metallic click.

“Where is he?” Jack growled against his mouth.

Read Adam...

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: 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.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: WHOA! What a way to start a fic... BANG! The remaining TW team's on a mission when UNIT comes with guns blazing (and sticks up their rears) to ruin everything! But it is oh so amusing to see Jack rip a new into the UNIT commander, though! *glee* It sounds like James Bond, Torchwood style, so if all the violence, swearing, and sex that's being promised isn't incentive enough, then Jack and Ianto in tuxes should be! *drools*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

The large doors blasted open, lights shone like a thousand suns and a terrible noise like a screaming banshee bore down on them. Gwen swore and threw herself backwards through the door as men in black uniforms rushed the area... A helicopter landed, cars drove up, and someone spoke in a bull horn. Somewhere, in her ear, Jack swore loud and colorfully... The aliens reached into the boxes and hauled out very big, very powerful guns. Gwen, realizing what was about to happen, threw herself onto the ground and curled into a small a ball as possible. The aliens fired. The weapons didn’t help. Sub machine guns rat-tat-tatted and gunned the aliens down instantly. Some of the bullets ripped through the door and hit the wall around Gwen. She shrieked, and in her ear both Ianto and Jack roared.

Everything went very quiet, save for the rotor blades of the helicopter...

EXCERPT:

Ianto was humming softly as he went about fixing... a coffee... sliding into his seat, he mindlessly picked up a small package that had been sitting there... Giving the thick envelope a gentle squeeze, he could feel... something... there. A box?... he tore at the opening... and let the contents slide into his waiting hand.

Ianto frowned as he looked down at the pack of cards before him. Tarot? Turning them over, he closely examined the pictures on the front... The images appeared to shift slightly, rearranging itself, settling into place... Each card was unique, unlike any Tarot deck he’d ever seen before. Pausing, he glanced over at the envelope. The... printing simply stated To Help You—no name... He didn’t remember actually picking this up... Shifting his gaze back to the cards, Ianto thought he saw something move again. There! The image... seemed to shimmer... Sucking in a short breath, Ianto realized it was the restaurant Jack and Gwen had gone to investigate.

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.

The computer beeped and a screen popped up. Tosh tapped a few keys and a series of diagnostics started running. She frowned at the readings. She lifted her phone and dialed upstairs... “Ianto, it’s Tosh. Is everything all right up there?”... Tosh tapped more keys... The same results... “You haven’t had any trouble at all?”

“None. What’s going on?” Ianto asked...

Tosh didn’t have a chance to finish explaining. A large boom cut her off and caused her to drop the phone to cover her throbbing ears... the ground shook beneath her chair and the lights crackled, then shut off... When the world stilled, the Hub alarm was blaring. Tosh quickly... plugged into the main system... When Gwen and Owen arrived she was typing wildly, “What the hell was that?” Owen demanded.

Tosh... turned to them slowly, a tear sliding down her cheek. “The Tourist Center. It just exploded...

EXCERPT:

Ianto headed into Jack’s office, expecting to see his Captain... What he found caused Ianto to just stare. Instead of the usual things that lined Jack’s desk, it was covered in paperwork, a decorative lamp, post-it notes... a complete mess. The furniture was completely different... with pictures lining the normally bare walls... and the normal RAF coat that hung by the door was replaced by a short leather jacket. Gwen sat behind the desk...

“What-what have you done?” He asked looking around, a picture of Rhys sat on the desk... “Where’s Jack?... Seriously, Gwen. You can’t just walk into his office and take it over-you know he hates it... Where is he?...”

“Ianto,” Gwen finally cut in. “Ianto, what are you talking about? This is my office.”

“The hell... where is Captain Jack Harkness?”

Gwen’s eyes went wide, and... tears... seemed to strangely appear... “Ianto, sweethear’, Jack’s dead.”

Comment or Excerpt from fic: WHOA! The title shoulda given it away, but I was quite ignorant and it made me go, "HOLY SHIT!

But this normalcy hides a secret that is uncovered when Gwen is hurt and now Ianto is as abnormal as they come.

EXCERPT:

When Ianto Jones fell through the Rift during a negative spike in activity, Captain Jack Harkness knew he had to get him back. Not because he was his lover, but because he didn’t want him to end up lost forever among the stars. He had to find a way to get him back before it was too late. No one deserved that fate.

But without a trail to follow, finding him was near to impossible. Three months passed without a lead to go on, and the team lost hope. Jack, forever the optimist, kept Ianto’s coffee mug and personnel information in the computer as an active member, even though he knew if Ianto came back after that long he probably wouldn’t be the same.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: So much happening and so many emotions - what a ride!

So it's a race against time to find Ianto and save him, but unfortunately, the demand is for something that Jack doesn't have anymore.

EXCERPT:

The waterfront restaurant was the ideal place for a date, a fact that hadn’t gone unnoticed if the happy couples crowded inside were anything to go by... and he knew that they were watching him... For all of them, however, the situation was perfectly clear: Captain Jack Harkness, intergalactic Casanova, had been stood up. It certainly wasn’t the first time... but Jack had never expected Ianto to punish him, humiliate him, quite so publicly... Jack would have never called Ianto... cruel... He... pulled his greatcoat on, already striding... in the direction of Ianto’s house. He wanted answers and... he wasn’t prepared to leave Ianto alone until he had them...

Jack... hammered on Ianto’s front door... not caring that he was making a scene... until it occurred to him that Ianto’s silence was uncharacteristic... The spark of worry flared into a flame and he began to dig around in his pocket for the bunch of keys... He stepped into the hall, eyes widening in horror as he looked around.

EXCERPT:

Jack shook his head as he watched Gwen and John supporting Ianto into the autopsy bay. From what he had gathered, while he had gone out to... capture a rogue Weevil... Ianto and Gwen had been called out to answer a call... It had sounded like a relatively simple job... A simple clean-up operation. Unfortunately, the intelligence they had received had not been entirely accurate... and... one Blowfish had quickly become five, two of which were severely intoxicated... and, just to make things even better, they had been taking hostages.

Luckily, John had been at the Hub on standby and had been able to get to them fairly quickly once had had learned the gravity of the situation... but... If those aliens had killed anyone...if they had hurt Ianto any more than he already was...just the thought made Jack shudder in anger. But... what the incident had also done was bring home an important truth - something that Jack knew he had been putting off for far too long.

"I know they're not real," he said when they sat outside in a small café, trying to explain. "But, I don't know, they just seem so real on the screen, and I just get so into it, like this life..."

He fell quiet, not quite sure what he'd been about to say, but certain he really shouldn't say it.

"Like there should be more to this life?" Ianto suggested.

Jack grinned ruefully.

"Aliens. Maybe," he said and looked up at the sky above.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

The world always waited for Jack... It was a melancholy thought but this was Torchwood... There simply were no happy endings... He... wondered how a small blue box could trigger such an existential train of thought. Looking at Jack, he had to bite his cheek... at the irony... Offense, he thought, sometimes was the best defense and tried to convince himself that he hadn’t just fled from Jack... However, Torchwood did a very good job hardening its employees: ignore or die. He ignored... and his hands shook so hard that Jack took the coffee from him...

“Deep breaths,” Jack was there, always so close... too close... just right, “we’ll be okay.” And... Ianto found himself in Jack’s arms clutching his shirt as though he were drowning... It wasn’t a revelation by any means. He had known, realized and thought he had made peace with the fact that part of his heart had been torn out, but Jack, still incredibly close and warm, had known all along: there would never be peace.

EXCERPT:

... he’d been pulled from the warmth of his bed... but now he couldn’t remember why... he thought he saw a woman in the glass... He closed his eyes as he heard the way his name filled his senses and called to him, almost begging in its delivery... Ianto was about to reply when he saw her standing... her shoulder length dark hair hanging around her face. His eyes were wide as he took in... her lithe frame...

“Ianto…” she called as she reached out one hand towards him... “Ianto help me please…” she called again as she turned and made to walk away.

Ianto felt a wave of intense sadness washed over him as he saw the woman turn her back on him and then just as suddenly as she had appeared she was gone. His head pounded with an intensity he’d not felt since the Breacons, it was as if he had suffered a head wound.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Sequel to Magwitch! YAY!! FINALLY!! ^____^ So, it seems it'll be more action-packed and violent than "Magwitch" and the plot is getting thicker and thicker! And so EXCITING!! *SQUEE* I CAN HARDLY WAIT!!

EXCERPT:

It was apparent that Gates had been working with the Pharm and the Copley brothers... and... he’d continued to develop the... virus... to raise funds... “The bastards used the virus to draw us out... It was a trap all along...”

“Gates can’t be working on his own.” Tosh shook her head slowly, there was something going on that bothered her. “There must be others.”

“I agree, if he was on the casualty list of the Battle of Canary Wharf... there could be others... you and Ianto... Ianto to go through the lists – see what you can dig up.” Jack looked apologetic, but there was no alternative.

Ianto took in a deep breath, he knew exactly what that entailed and... it could only mean trouble... he stood up slowly and... turned to look at Jack, trying to convey in a glance that he knew that it was unavoidable and that he accepted the task. He could make out the words ‘I’m sorry’ on Jack’s lips and nodded.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is one of the most gorgeously written fics that I've ever had the pleasure to read... and believe me, I've read a LOT! Taking place slightly before "Exit Wounds," but post-2x09 "Something Borrowed," it starts off with Ianto's body carrying a "foreign entity" (*coughBABYcough*) and what follows are a series of events that're nothing like any mpreg fics I've ever read! Very unexpected! And the twists and turns in this fic just keep you at the edge of your seat!

*starry eyed* I'm in absolute AWE!!

*_______________________________________________________*

I don't have the slightest clue how else to explain this fic other than to urge you to read it yourself, so GO READ!!

EXCERPT:

Ianto... froze at the unmistakable sound of Jack's revolver cocking behind him... Ianto slowly raised both hands... and... slowly turned... to look up at Jack... "Jack... What..." What did I do...

"We're not going to hurt you," Jack said... "... You're showing up funny on the scanners, and we need to figure out what's going on before it takes you over or kills you..."

Owen... pointed a hand-held scanner at Ianto's chest, sweeping it slowly downward... "Damn... Definitely something alive in there--pretty small, though. Get it with the singularity scalpel, no trouble..." Owen let out a strange noise then, staring at the scanner... "Haven't seen one... in a long while, but... Homo sap, I reckon."

Ianto blinked at it. "It's human?"

"It's a baby..."
