Comment or Excerpt from fic: Probably my second all-time favourite Jack/Ianto fic, teetering right on the edge of being my favourite. It's marvelously dark and chilling, while still being beautiful. The style is brilliant and it's a very enchanting read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone so long as they're not adverse to violence and dark fics.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: A wonderful, wonderful fic that began as a ten page one-shot, and grew out of control, according to the author. It charts Jack and Ianto's relationship, and their reactions to events on the show, as well as adding a few interesting side adventures for them to have. It contains a few cliches, as the author warns, but they are built into the story, and form valid plot points rather than just being cliches. It is very well researched, contains the occasional reference, and has solid characterization throughout. AND it gets Myfanwy's gender right ... you'll see what I mean. There is so much I love about this fic.

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."

Excerpt:
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

Summary:
Disgraced American pilot Captain Jack Harkness starts again in a new country and a new service but will a young sonar operator make things easier or harder for Jack?
Status:

Length:
15 Chapters + Prologue and Epilogue (38,315 Words)
Warnings:
Brief mention of Jack/OFC (and suggested Jack/OFC/OMC) and Ianto/Lisa
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Very good AU that has nothing to do with Torchwood with a mortal Jack and Ianto in the second world war in a Royal Navy Submarine, you can imagine what happens lol. It's well written and has good pace, there's no rushing into things :). This is one of my favourite WW2 Jack/Ianto stories :D

Excerpt:

He shrugged on the coat that had been hanging over his arm - no-one would see it was an Air Force coat in the dark - and tugged the warm comforting material around him.  Sadly this would have to go into storage at his lodging house with most of the rest of his things; he’d miss the coat, it was almost like it was a part of him.  Taking one last glance at his new charge he turned and left the docks behind him.  He rounded the corner of one of the cargo units, head bowed against the wind; and impacted with something warm and solid.

 

Glancing up, he was just in time to see a figure step round him with a clear “Sorry, Sir” before the figure was swallowed up by the darkness out towards the harbour.  He’d barely seen the man, nothing really but shadow; yet still he was left with the lingering impression of blue grey eyes and a muttered ‘Like the coat’.

Title: DRIVING CAPTAIN HARKNESS
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tanarian
Genre: AU
Rating: R/NC-17 overall
Summary: Jack Harkness knew Torchwood House held secrets but he didn’t realise that there was also a treasure there, as well.
Status: WIP
Length: 2 Chapters so far
Comment or Excerpt from fic: By the lovely [livejournal.com profile] tanarian , that should be all you need to know that the fic is going to be goood! :D

“Captain Harkness?”

Jack stared at the man who had seemingly materialised in front of him. Young and darkly handsome and dressed in what Jack quickly realised was a grey chauffeur’s uniform, complete with perfectly arranged hat and gloves; he presented an image that did serious things to Jack’s libido. “That’s me,” he confirmed with an easy grin. “I take it you’re here to take me for a ride?”

An eyebrow was raised and there was just the smallest quirk to the other’s lips. Very kissable lips, Jack was quick to note. “If by that you mean take you back to the House, sir, then I would agree. The car is this way.”

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: 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: 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: 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.

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: 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.

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: Give Me Pain if That's What's Real
Author: [livejournal.com profile] baka_sensei
Genre: Angst, Fix!It fic
Rating: Up to NC-17
Summary: I know I should be working on Revelations. However, first I had to exorcise the demon of CoE, and man, what a bitch of a demon it was. Ambiguous-fix!it fic. Title and some inspiration taken from Next to Normal. Remember Head!Six from Battlestar Galactica? Yeah, it's kind of like that.
Status: Complete
Length: ~12,00 words, 2 parts
Warnings: Series 3 spoilers
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is an amazing fic that takes place about a thousand or so years from the end of series 3. It's a pretty amazing exploration of the Jack/Ianto connection and, for being as short as it is, delves deeply into the mind of Jack Harkness when it comes to relationships and more specifically his relationship with Ianto. It will make you laugh, cry and all sorts of other things simultaneously.

Author: Lazuli Kat
Genre: Drama, Angst, Hurt/Comfort
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Death is not the only form of loss.
Status: Complete
Length: Very long
Warning: Mental illness, character death
Comment: What if John Hart were exactly the sort of man everyone thought he was when he first appeared? What if Grey somehow got free in the Hub? What if after being buried alive, Jack came back with something? And how, on top of recovering from Tosh and Owen's death's, would Gwen and Ianto cope?

This is an AU after Series Two ended, and there is a very strong sense of "the end is where we start from" throughout this fic- the sense that despite all of Torchwood's losses, they'll somehow be able to recover. There is a plot, but most of the action centers around Jack and Ianto, and I think you'll find it a very satisfying read.

Title
: 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: Purple Oysters
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sorchar 
Genre: PWP, Fluff, Angst
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Crackfic of the crackiest order. Srsly. It's "alien-sex-drug-makes-them-do-it" fic.
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Warnings: LOTS O' MAN-ON-MAN. Explicit. Adult content. Whoaz.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: One of the obligatory "aliens-made-them-do-it" fics. It does get a little mushy and cliche and Ianto seems a bit needy and OOC (I'm more of a sarcastic/jaded!Ianto lover myself... so if you like your Ianto fluffy and emo, you won't have a problem), but the sex (multiple times) in this fic is blazingly hot and worth the read all by itself. Of course, an uninhibited, moaning Ianto is always good. Right? :D

Title: If Not Wisely
Author: [livejournal.com profile] liadan14
Genre: Angst
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Ianto keeps count. He hardly knows why--it's not like it matters, it's not like Jack cares, it's not like he wouldn't sound like a creepy stalker if he were to say something like, "I remember our seventeenth kiss. It was in the archives."
Status: Complete
Length: ~9,500 words in 3 parts
Warnings: None

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This story snuck up on me. I started reading it and certainly thought it was good, but as the story unfolded I found myself absolutely drawn in and held fast. It's beautifully written, showing Ianto as the more-than-slightly screwed up person he is without taking him out of character. The build-up to the end was very well-done, and the end itself was a perfect grace note to a wonderful story.

Title: Drug!Ianto 'Verse
Author:  [livejournal.com profile] skellerbvvt 
Genre:  angst, power struggle, dark, drama, humor
Rating:  NC-17
Summary: Ianto is the bait and the trap, Torchwood's last defense against the Time Lord threat
Status: Incomplete, Series
Warnings: Everything. No, really. Everything. See tags for more info.
Comment: There aren't really the words for how disturbed this fic is. No, really, there are none. The TARDIS is sociopathic. Jack is broken. The Master is manic. The Doctor is manic. And Ianto is the drug they're all addicted to. And yet- you can't look away. You can't help but laugh. And you're never sure which way this fic will go. The fic itself is as addicting as Ianto.

The first part is Trapped Inside With You. Proceed with caution.
