Title: Alive
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nixa_jane
Genre: Angst, Romance
Rating: PG
Summary: Jack came back soaked to the skin.
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Comment or Excerpt from fic:

Jack's got a heartbeat just like anyone else. Ianto can hear it when he gets this close, just below the surface, steady as anything. It's kind of like the click click click of a stopwatch. Ianto finds it comforting.

"Wake up," Ianto says.

Jack doesn't wake up, which is odd, because Jack doesn't sleep. Ianto's never seen him sleep, not in all the time he's worked for him. Jack says he doesn't need it and Ianto believes him. He always believes him.

Title: Night Monsters
Author: [livejournal.com profile] qthelights
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Public drunken sex
Genre: Smut, PWP
Summary: The night isn't only for monsters. Shameless pwp.
Commentary: This fic is wonderful. It's convincing, it's humor-tinted, it's hot. It's a showcase of a Jack and Ianto who are very much comfortable with each other. It's a stolen moment between two men who don't get such things often enough. And... why are you still here?

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.

Title: Love the Coat
Author: [livejournal.com profile] erin_giles
Genre: Angst, romance, angst
Rating: PG
Warnings: character death, not graphic, but not temporary either
Summary: Five drabbles that depict five times Ianto Jones slept with Jack Harkness' coat. Mostly angsty.
Commentary: I first clicked on this fic after reading the title, which was something of a mistake on my part. If you only read the title, you see, you expect crack of the fluffy variety, but instead, you might end up crying only a little at the end.

Title: Protective Aggression
Author: [livejournal.com profile] emily_sheppard
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Smut, Character Study, Introspection
Warnings: Violent sex, elements of D/s
Status: Complete
Length: One-shot
Summary: A soldier never comes out of a war unscathed and Jack's trained Ianto to be one almost to perfection.
Commentary: This fic hits pretty much all of my fic kinks: it touches on Ianto's ruthless side, on his loyalty, and on how much Torchwood can take from a person- without killing them. Told from Jack's perspective, this story is more than a bit on the dark side, and ends on a slightly uncomfortable note, with the feeling the however much they lean on each other, something could pull the rug out from under them at any moment.

Title: Let Me Kill You Sweetheart
Author: [livejournal.com profile] blackbird_song
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Angst, romance, hurt/comfort
Status: Complete
Length: ~9000 words
Summary: Ianto gets a case of 'flu that forces him to explore the way that he interacts with life, all very much against his will.
Commentary: Oh, alien viruses, how strange can you get? The short answer is "very". The long answer... takes over 9,000 words to accurate describe.

This story is largely about Ianto's struggle to deal with the effects of the virus, but through his befuddled eyes we also get the story of Jack dealing with a virus which inevitably ends in tears.

Title: Ianto's Diary
Author: [livejournal.com profile] szm
Rating: PG-15
Genre: Angst, Character Study
Status: Complete
Length: One-shot
Warnings: Character death, post-CoE
Spoilers: Through CoE
Summary: Jack finds and continues with Ianto's diary.
Commentary: This is one of the first post-CoE stories I read, and among the first to be written. It's angry, and greiving- and, as it's written from Jack's perspective, it rings completely true.

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.

Title: All That We See
Author: [livejournal.com profile] erin_giles
Genre: Angst, Dream fic,
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Sometimes a dream is just a dream
Status: Oneshot
Length: ~2,600
Warnings: Jack/OFC, post COE, (
Comment or Excerpt from fic: In the interests of full disclosure, yes I did beta this fic but I would have reccomened this fic had I come across it any other way.

This beautiful story is about Jack dreaming of all the people he lost during Series 2 and 3 of Torchwood. [livejournal.com profile] erin_giles' character voices are spot on and I could see all of this as I read it. The first time I read this fic I started crying about half-way through and by the time I got to the end I could barely see what I was reading.

This fic broke my heart, and breaks it again every time I re-read it, but it was bloody worth it.

Title: To Do List
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nancybrown
Rating: PG
Warnings: It would be in your keyboard's best interests to not be eating or drinking while reading this fic.
Status: Complete
Length: ~1000 words
Summary: "To Do: (slang) 1. n. time management list for organisational purposes. 2. n. a commotion, fuss, or quarrel."
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.

Commentary: Sometimes... you just need some affectionate, playful porn. Something both comforting and hot. Something to make you melt. This does that, and does it very well indeed.

Title: Heaven in Hell's Demesne

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: Questions
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kinkerbelle13
Genre: Angst, relationship, romance, AU
Rating: PG-13
Status: Complete
Length: ~2600
Warnings: Canon character death
Summary: Basically, Jack and Owen have a conversation.
Commentary: Don't let the summary fool you; this fic continues long after the conversation between Owen and Jack is over, both chronologically and narratively. It's starts with one question Owen asks, and it takes a while for Jack to find an answer to it. In the meantime, Torchwood marches on, the world nearly ends a few times, and through it all, Jack wonders.

Title: World Enough, and Time
Author: [livejournal.com profile] soraismus
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.

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: Something New

Rating: NC-17
Summary: "Don't move. Don't open your eyes." Written for the prompts: Gun-play, object insertion, D/s.
Status: Complete
Length: 1,949 words
Warnings: Gunplay, D/s, really, really kinky
Comment: This is shameless PWP, as much about fun and affection between the two men as it is about the level of trust playing with these kinks like this necessitates. On a more personal note, I've always liked the idea of Dom!Ianto, and who doesn't like Jack's gun?

Title: The Epitaph
Author: Otrame ([livejournal.com profile] otrame)
Genre: Angst
Rating: G
Summary: Many years in the future, Jack visits Ianto's grave.
Status: Complete
Length: 894 words
Warnings: Character Death (very past tense)
Comment: You've all heard "the end is where we start from". What you may not have heard is another line from Little Gidding T.S. Eliot penned: "Every poem an epitaph". That is the line that came to me while reading this fic. For something so short, it packs a lot of punch. There's an awful lot of sorrow and grief; there's also acceptance, and grace. There's beauty. I could go on and on about how powerfully touching this fic is until my commentary was longer than it was, but essentially, the reason I found this so memorable is because it's a memorial. Not only to Ianto, but to everything we saw between him and Jack.

Summary: SPOILERS FOR CHILDREN OF EARTH. )
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Warnings: Spoilers for Children Of Earth
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.
