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:  This is Post CoE, and my personal canon of what happened because hellooo, Ianto is alive and there's accidental time travel! Heartbreaking in the best possible way, and there's also a happy ending after all the angst. *teary eyes*

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

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: A Taste of Midnight
Author: [livejournal.com profile] toestastegood
Genre: Action, Romance, Vampire!Ianto
Rating: R
Summary: An alien attack, a new stalker for Jack and an assault on a vital employee leaves the Torchwood team with a fresh set of problems – especially when Ianto begins to develop a taste for human blood.
Status: Complete
Length: 6 Chapters
Comment or Excerpt from fic:

Jack didn't bother to contradict her, instead becoming distracted when his headset demanded his attention. A simple press of a button and he'd answered the call. "Yeah?"

He wasn't sure what he'd been expecting: Ianto calling to say he was bored, Owen calling to demand food, or Tosh to say she'd finished her reports. Something bland. Something neutral.

Instead, Tosh's stressed voice flooded into his ear. "Jack? It's Ianto – something's happened to him, I don't know what. I think he's hurt."

That was all he had to hear before he was drawing his gun and heading for the door: rushing to the rescue.

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.

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: 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: 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: 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.

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: Ring-a-Ring o' Roses
Author[personal profile] azure_chaos 
Genre: Apocalyptic, angst, non-canon compliant
Summary: Jack always thought that the biggest threat to Earth was external. That’s why he policed the rift and watched Britain’s borders for alien threats. Unfortunately, no one saw this one coming from the inside. With almost the entire population of the world seemingly wiped out Jack discovers a surprise survivor. But if the apocalypse itself was bad, Jack knows that it’s really just the beginning and he will do anything to protect those he cares about.
Status: Complete
Length: Six Chapters + prologue, epilogue
Warnings: Action, Allusion to D/s, minor character death (no major character death).
Comment or Experpt from fic: This fic goes completely AU, ignoring the events of Exit Wounds and Children of Earth, Tosh and Owen are present. Rhys and Andy are included as well.

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.

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.
