Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is a brilliant fic that is recc'd at [livejournal.com profile] longliveianto  where I first found it, and I thought it should go here, as it gives us so much hope after the disaster that was the-series-that-shall-not-be-named. This is another fic that could be classed as canon if people wanted it to, in the words of the Doctor "Time can be rewritten."

The man who shouldn’t be looked up through eyes that were nearly swollen shut at the man who wasn’t a man, smiled a smile that could only be described as ‘terrifying’ and shouted, “Doctor!  What brings you here?  No, wait let me guess.  Um - Daleks?  No, no we got all of those.  Cybermen?  No, the last of those died when we killed Y-Ianto’s girlfriend.” The Doctor could hear the slight stutter even through the slurring and wondered what had happened before Jack went on. “No, no, no!  I’ve got it!  The 456, are they back?  Do you want to know how I did it?  Or did someone tell you what I did and you’ve come to put me down?” The Doctor flinched.

At this last, the Doctor saw Jack’s eyes light up with a kind of horrifying hope.  The Doctor realized that Jack was in worse shape than he thought if he believed for an instant that the Time Lord would actually kill him.

This is one awesome story, read this if you love stories where Ianto lives :D

Comment or Excerpt from fic:
This is a story that kinda makes CoE worth it :/, and that's hard for me to say because I'm a denier of CoE. This isn't a CoE fix-it, but it's as close as possible to one. This is really good, I'm totally hooked, I'm always anxiously awaiting updates :D

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: 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.

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.

: From Here to There and Back Again with You
Author[personal profile] blue_fjords  
Genre: Post COE "fix-it fic", sort of.
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Takes place post-Children of Earth.
Status: One shot.
Length: approx 10,300
Warnings: Spoilers for CoE.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Without giving too much away, I chose this bit.
"You accepted me without reservation but still had the guts to stand up to me when I was wrong.” He smiled humorlessly. “You had to do a lot of standing. But you, Ianto,” and he risked opening his eyes, “you always forgave me. You always eased the load.” Ianto’s eyes were hot and damp, but he didn’t look away as Jack’s voice dropped to a whisper. “And I needed you.”

Why I've recced it? 
It's a post-CoE fic, sort of "fix-it fic", but not quite. You're going to laugh and cry reading this.
This is a very satisfying and believable story. The fandom needed this, after CoE. And it's written by [personal profile] blue_fjords  whose writing is always amazing.

Title: Following Orpheus
Author: capedcrusader92
Rating: PG 13
genre: Post COE fix-it fic
Summary: The end is where we start from.
Status: one shot
Length: approx 8,700
Warnings: Spoilers for Children of Earth
Comment or Excerpt from fic:

"He sits there for a moment, getting his breath back, and tries to figure out what is going on. He doesn’t know how he came to be here and he realises, with a frisson of panic, that he can’t remember his name.

He looks down at himself, hoping for clues, but there is nothing. A bit of self-examination reveals some pretty impressive bruising on his torso and what feels like a cut over his right cheekbone, but none of it triggers any memories. He can feel a few faint scars under his fingertips – one on his leg and another on his neck, just under his chin – but he can’t think of what could have caused them."

Why I've recced it? Because I just felt so good after reading it. It's just such a good look at how things could easily have played out in the 6+ months after Children of Earth
