Title: 10 Songs Ianto Jones Never Wants To Hear Again
Author: [livejournal.com profile] pinkfairy727
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Don't run with scissors.
Genre: Fluff, humor, romance
Summary: Check tin label.
Commentary: This fic is adorable. I want to hug it and smoosh it and call it George. On a slightly more serious note, this is a fic that takes an idea that can easily end in something trite and adds depth to it. Some of these songs he avoids out of embarassment, other because of the paiful memories they remind him of; other, are merely annoying in and of themselves. My favorite is number seven, but each of these songs has something to offer.

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.

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.

Status: COMPLETE
Length: One-shot
Word Count: 1,406
Warnings: spoilers for Torchwood 1x10 “Out of Time,” Homophobia
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well now, this is a bit different from the usually written fics based on TW episode 1x10 (Out of Time). Rather than being a coda, it takes place somewhere in the middle of the episode, most likely before John goes to see his aged son and loses all hope of fitting into this strange future. It is fully from John’s POV and his helplessness is already evident.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He wandered around the Hub, exploring. A severed hand: how disgusting. Many things he could not identify. Metal, stone, mysterious goo in glass dishes. A morgue, kept locked. Computers everywhere, but he couldn't see many books. How could they trust the computers? How could they give the machines such power over them? They didn't seem to notice, or care. There was too much glass - was it safe? How did they keep the place warm and lit? It must be a colossal use of power, of expenditure, of waste.

He was worrying too much, but he couldn't let go… He wandered on. He wanted to escape, but how can you escape a time? You can only escape a place. Everywhere he went, he was still caught in this inexplicable future.

He'd never thought it would be like this.

Summary: Jack relieves Ianto before he runs himself ragged…
Status: COMPLETE
Length: One-shot / 2 TOTAL
Word Count: 1,826
Warnings: post: Torchwood S2 ("Exit Wounds"), implied Character deaths
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is mostly an angsty fic with a heavy dose of hurt/comfot, especially in the second part. We usually see Ianto taking care of Jack and Gwen post “Exit Wounds,” but this is just the opposite – Ianto on the brink and Gwen forcing Jack to acknowledge the fact that they need to hire more people before Ianto looses it.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

“Jack, I need to talk to you.”

Jack looked up from his paperwork as Gwen strode determinedly into his office... Ute-oh. She looks to be gearing up for a long one...

“We need help. We need to start thinking about…replacements,” she said, hesitant but no more determined.

Jack froze at those words. Replacements? Owen and Tosh? They could never be replaced. Even though he's thought of it, it felt slightly like betrayal. “We’re handling things well, Gwen. For the time being, we’re set. We don’t need anyone,” he said but a whisper in the back of his head called him on his denial.

“Jack! Open your eyes!” she... dragged him to the window... pointing below. “Look. Down there.”

Jack closed his eyes at the sight briefly, then forced himself to do as Gwen suggested.

Warnings: spoilers upto and post: Torchwood 2x02 “Sleeper,” Character death, Smut
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well, we move away from the angst-fest of the last few days to something more fluffy!... Well, fluffier than the previous ones. Fic based on the “Sleeper” episode from TW S2. Taking place from the moment Jack, Beth, and Gwen comeback after stopping the last sleeper agent at the military base and goes from there to post-“Sleeper.” Slightly angst, but it’s fluffy and romantic with a dash of Gwen-bashing and a whole lotta smut! *grins*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto pulled the SUV door open, catching Jack’s limp body... and… debated what to do. Jack needed to be comfortable but there was no way to carry him down to his bunker. Unbuckling Jack’s seatbelt, he lifted... to get Jack stretched out across the back seat. The greatcoat had a tear... but nothing he couldn’t fix. He took off the greatcoat, tossing it over the front seat and cursed. Jack’s light blue shirt was blood soaked.

He shook his head. “You covered it with your coat, you twpsyn, why didn’t you let me know?” he muttered. He deftly undid the buttons of Jack’s shirt, revealing the blood soaked undershirt and a gaping wound... He lifted Jack’s head and slid into the seat, cradling him in his lap... “I wish you would’ve told me, we could’ve talked on the comms. You know I hate when you die on your own... But I’m here now...”

A few minutes passed and the silence was deafening.

In his office Jack looked up wondering were both Ianto and his coffee were. Setting his pen down, he hit his comm. link and whined playfully, “Iiiiiaaaantoooo, Where are you? Where’s my coffee?”

There was no reply.

Jack called again this time sounding vaguely pathetic

“I’m a little preoccupied, Sir. I’ll be with you in a moment,” soothed Ianto the soft voice going someway to calm Jack down.

But Jack being Jack wasn’t satisfied. Leaning back in his chair he asked petulantly, “What’s more important than sharing a coffee with me?”… Pushing himself up and out of his chair, he wandered across to the door and pulled it open. He froze, staring in disbelief at the sight that greeted him.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Sequel to Magic Hands. Talk about sensory overload. Not only does Ianto get his wish, but so does Jack.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack slowly raised his eyes and holding Ianto’s gaze, he asked softly, “Is this what you want?”

Ianto didn’t answer. He didn’t dare trust his voice. He’d wanted this for so long, had wanted to feel something other than pure raw sex. Ianto knew he would never willingly admit that what he longed for was the softer things, the simple things such as cuddling and snuggling. He knew he’d never ask for it, not now and certainly not from Jack. He’d made that mistake once before... only to be laughed at... ridiculed for wanting such... things. So he stayed quiet, his body tense... He was standing still as if afraid that one movement would ruin the moment.

“Ianto,” breathed Jack, “Answer me. Is this what you really want from me?”

Ianto nodded, almost sadly as if expecting the spell to be broken.

To his surprise Jack smiled – a soft warm smile that lit up the older man’s eyes…

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.”

Title: Different Sort of Science

Rating: NC-17
Summary: Magic is just a different sort of science
Status: Complete
Length: 30 chapters
Warnings: Ianto/Lisa, slightly weird familial relationships, but other than that you're in for a wonderful ride
Comment: This is AMAZING like you wouldn't believe- tailor!Ianto and uberpowerfulMage!Ianto and jealous!Jack and all sorts of wonderful, wonderful things like that. It features characters from Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures as well as the entire cast of Torchwood- even PC Andy makes an apperance as an adorkable kid in the last chapter. The format is wonderful as well- each chapter opens with a quote from the series, which perfectly, and sometimes hilariously, sets the tone for the chapter.Everything a Torchwood AU should be, this is a fic you really don't want to miss out on.

It's the simple things, the little moments that can completely throw your life off the course it's firmly been set on.

For Ianto Jones, it had been something as simple as offering help with a stubborn horse.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Oh this is such a beautiful piece! *____* This is how I've always seen out Janto relationship develop - purely physical in the beginning, but the experiences make it so much more. Though bittersweet, this piece is just beautiful and romantic and just perfect!

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Once... he’d told himself it was just lust, that it couldn't be anything else, that he couldn't allow it be anything else. Yet the more Jack had tried to convince himself that they were doing was purely physical the less it worked. Ianto had shown him... that not to love meant not to live... He'd taught him love again... simply by being there. Jack knows that one day he'll lose him, and... that day... it will hurt him in a way that nothing has managed for a very long time, yet even knowing that he cannot stop.

He has no control over loving Ianto... They are together, against the odds, against everything... and perhaps they are all the stronger for it.

Ianto gives him timeless moments when he can pretend that they both have forever... to make memories to carry into eternity with him, ones that he can remember by moonlight when he's all alone.

EXCERPT:

Ianto... threw back the covers and tumbled out of bed, making his way blindly to the shower. The hot water worked its magic to wake him, but did little to relieve the throbbing of his head. God, he didn’t remember getting pissed last night. Must have done though, to have a pounder like this... The pain in his head receded slightly when he managed to get a coffee... on his way to work... Still, when he cleared the tall, glass doors and stepped into the front lobby of his office building, Ianto shivered. Things were off somehow. Different. Wrong...

“Something is off... Like I’m supposed to be doing something, but I can’t quite remember what it is...” He shivered as the words left his lips... “Déjà vu...” Before he could say anything else, pain exploded in his head. The scream left his mouth without thought, his hands pressing tight to his eyes, trying to force back the agony. Vaguely, he realized he’d fallen to the floor... Thankfully, unconsciousness claimed him after that.

EXCERPT:

Jack walked purposefully... to where Tosh had picked up the ship... Hopefully this would be... a quick and easy job that got him back to the Hub as quickly as possible so that he could work his way through the list of ‘Reasons why staying in is much more fun than going to a poncy restaurant.’.. As transporters went, it was quite a smooth one, just a brief feeling like walking through four-dimensional custard and the field vanished...

~ ~

Ianto had taken off his jacket... It was a shame about the date, but business before pleasure... He glanced back... to the comms scan running on the next monitor over. The four dots were flashing away merrily. He took another slice of pizza and promptly dropped it in his lap as one of the dots abruptly vanished from the screen.

“Bugger.” he whispered under his breath.

But when the words are ‘I love you’…

They’re all the words you need...

I had a picture of you;... I thought that you were just like the others... I could never have thought I’d be so wrong...

I spent so long looking for someone to understand…to give me meaning…and you were right here all along. That is my new picture…my picture of you.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I was eagerly waiting for another fic from [livejournal.com profile] palmface and was delivered with this piece of brilliance! This is AU, as it states previously, with total disregard for TW S3 character speculation. Now that I think about it, I haven't read many post-EW fics that have TW3 recruiting OCs and not the usual characters (Mickey, Martha, maybe Tom)...

Anyway, the POV jumps every alternate chapter in the fic and so far, it's a very interesting fic with almost all genres - humor, action, romance, angst, etc. Exciting and enjoyable!

EXCERPT:

When Robert Carmichael woke on a typically wet... morning... he went about his usual routine with a usual lack of enthusiasm... there was absolutely nothing to suggest... that this day would be in any way exceptional. Just another normal day, in a boring job... people who couldn’t even begin to appreciate his brilliance.

... The third floor was the dullest and most mocked department in the entirety of the UNIT organisation... This was the wasteland of the UNIT Empire, full of the disgraced and those who were deemed an embarrassment...

As he exited the lift... Robert was hailed by Nigel... “Robert... You’ve got a letter here. All very mysterious... with... explicit instructions that it be hand-delivered to you personally, apparently. All very hush-hush...”

Robert frowned... The envelope was stark white... expensive from its parchment-like texture; it was relieved only by the presence of flowing script in black ink bearing his name... No address, postmark, stamp, nothing.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This fic is connected to the above fic, but it isn't necessary to read this to read that one. The main reason I'm reccing this is because it's mentioned, a bit briefly, in Recruitment Policy and gives insight to the changes in team dynamics when Jack wasn't there.

EXCERPT:

Owen... smirked... “Get your coats, ladies and Gwen, we’re going to the pub.”

Ianto looked blankly... Tosh paused... to give him a look that was half reproachful and half disbelief. Gwen, however, wasn’t going to settle for a look. “Owen... We can’t all just go out and get pissed, we’re all that stands between this planet and the Rift, we can’t afford to be drunk on the job.”

Owen rolled his eyes; they’d heard this speech exactly thirty seven times... and it wasn’t getting any easier to listen to... “Come on, Gwen, one night out isn’t going to kill us! Anyway, we need to celebrate.”

Tosh looked up again at this. “What exactly are we celebrating Owen?”

“This is the first mission against a hostile alien intent on killing us all that we’ve beaten without any injuries since Jack left!”
