Title: The Waters and the Wild
Author: [livejournal.com profile] soera 
Genre:  Dark, Alternate Canon
Rating:  NC-17
Summary: The Torchwood team comprises Jack, Owen, Tosh and Gwen. They've just encountered the faeries of Small Worlds. Unfortunately, they've also caught the eye of another type of faerie, and he's rather intrigued by Jack.

Length: 3

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.

Title: Heaven in Hell's Demesne
Author: [livejournal.com profile] crystalfic
Genre: Angst, hurt/comfort
Rating: PG-13

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: Adam
Author: [personal profile] invisible_lift 
Genre: Mystery/Angst
Rating: ranges from PG to R
Summary: "No one knows what happened to the real Ianto Jones."
Status: Complete
Length: Six chapters
Warnings:
Despite the title, NOT a spoilerfic for "Adam."  Reference to "Ghost Machine."  R-rating on some chapters due to violence.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This fic is actually an expansion of a chilling ficlet [personal profile] invisible_lift posted while working on "A Hatful of Hollow." For a fairly simple premise, there's quite a lot going on here.  You get glimpses of the mundane (for Torchwood, anyway) daily tasks at the hub, friendships among the team, and a very dark Jack indeed.  Link at the top takes you to the 1st chapter; one below brings you to all six.

Jack kissed him gently, almost tentatively, letting his tongue dart in to taste but not to explore. It was a delicate, light sort of touching, but surprisingly pleasant. Ianto was seriously considering leaving the scanning equipment where it was and suggesting they make use of the boardroom table immediately when he felt something cold and hard pressed against the side of his head and heard a metallic click.

“Where is he?” Jack growled against his mouth.

Comment:Jack has a fair bit of issues to work out after returning, something which we only got hints and glimmers of during series two. Plenty of extremely talented authors have gone about working this through against the backdrop of the earlier portion of the series, as well as working through the notion of that first date Jack and Ianto had. She does and wonder, lovely, haunting job of weaving them both through the first four episodes of Torchwood.

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.

Other/Implied Pairings: Owen/Tosh, Jack/Doctor (kind of one-sided), Martha/Doctor (also a tad one-sided), Master/Jack (noncon)
Summary: The Year-That-Never-Was left open wounds. Healing them would take time. But of course, they had time
Status: WIP
Length: Multipart
Word Count: Ongoing
Warnings: non-con, character death, suicide, mental illness, torture
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Many, many people comment on the lack of focus Torchwood hason Jack's recovery from what was probably a not-too-pleasant experience, not to mention repairing his relationship with the Doctor, who was outright mean to Jack for the first two episodes of the Master arc. Most of these people focus on his recovery in the context of Torchwood Season Two, in codas for KKBB, Meat, and Exit Wounds. But Otrame takes a different spin- after all, the TARDIS is a time travel machine. Martha, Jack, and the Doctor could have taken a trip or two in between the Master's death and Jack choosing the return to his team in Cardiff. This explores how the four of them (Martha, Jack, the Doctor, and the TARDIS) would heal in this situation. Combined with some frankly brilliant theories about what, exactly, the Time Agency did this is something I'd highly recommend for anyone who is a fan of dark fics. One word of caution- although she updates fairly regularly, this is a WIP, and they are all still very broken, although Jack does seem to have the worst of it right now.

Memories are just stray neuro-chemical pulses in the matrix of my brain, and if a Time Lord can’t control a few stray neuro-chemical pulses in his own brain… But of course I can. I can allow a few to remain. Just enough so I know what happened. Put the rest in deep storage, only called up when absolutely necessary. And I refuse to believe that there will ever be a time I need to remember

Jack, sitting in an enormous puddle of blood holding a corpse in his arms. The blood has clotted, the serum separated and spread out from the original stain on the floor. The thinner places have already dried; the corpse is ice cold. Jack’s eyes are dead.

….

You start here. The universe is this way. Reset all variables to current conditions. The past is not a real thing. You are alive, in a healthy body. Your TARDIS is healing. You can go on from here.

EXCERPT



Spence grinned, and opened the door. Ianto peered inside the brightly-lit room, wincing a little at the assault on his senses. It took him a moment to be able to see clearly, and once he could, he gasped out loud in astonishment at what he was seeing.

Inside the room was a man, huddled in a far corner of the room and watching them with wild eyes. He wore filthy sweatpants and a torn, dirty tee-shirt. His hair was long and shaggy — although, Ianto was curious to note that he had no beard or any other sign of facial hair — and there were manacles around his wrists and ankles, as well as what appeared to be a leather collar around his neck. Five separate chains kept him secured to the wall.

Ianto felt a rush of anger at the inhumanity of the sight before him. “Is this some sort of joke? Since when do we lock up humans?”

“This is no joke, Jones, and we don’t consider it to be human. Say hello to Torchwood’s longest surviving resident.”

Author: [livejournal.com profile] garnettrees 
Summary: "'Tis an unweeded garden
That grows to seed. Things rank and gross in nature
Possess it merely."
-Hamlet, Act I, Scene II
Other Characters/Pairings: Tish's POV; some implied Gwen/Rhys and Owen/Diane
Warnings: Character death, implied rape, torture, unwanted groping
Status: WIP
Length: 2/5 parts posted
Commentary: Yes, I have a thing for fics which take place in the Year That Never Was. And this is an amazing example of what can be done with all the implied darkness that happened during that nonexistant period of time. Using Tish as the narrator works especially well here; we feel her suffering, both as Martha's sister and the person who was hired to stand there and look pretty. She also has the dubious position as one of the people who cleans up the Master's shit, which normally includes body parts. It's haunting and creepy, and written in an almost surreal style, which has the overall effect of making it very easy for the reader to feel just as sleep-deprived and hopeless as poor Tish.

Comment or Excerpt from fic:Ianto asked if Jack wanted to come for lunch, and Jack said yes, he did, thank you very much, and so they went to lunch. They went to a small bistro, and ordered sandwiches. While they ate, Ianto asked Jack about his fears of aliens and scary movies. Jack made an embarrassed sound, and shook his head.

"I know they're not real," he said when they sat outside in a small café, trying to explain. "But, I don't know, they just seem so real on the screen, and I just get so into it, like this life..."

He fell quiet, not quite sure what he'd been about to say, but certain he really shouldn't say it.

"Like there should be more to this life?" Ianto suggested.

Jack grinned ruefully.

"Aliens. Maybe," he said and looked up at the sky above.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I'm seriously looking forward to read this fic cuz what could be better than TORCHWOOD IN VE~GAS, BABY!!! XD *pumps fist in the air* One craziness meets a craziness on an entirely new level, so insanity galore!

Starts off with Martha calling Torchwood about an unsolved case that'll take our TW team to Vegas. But even before the official mission as a team can start, Jack disappears and this mission now becomes very personal. Be aware of the warnings as they apply from chapter two itself.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

The world always waited for Jack... It was a melancholy thought but this was Torchwood... There simply were no happy endings... He... wondered how a small blue box could trigger such an existential train of thought. Looking at Jack, he had to bite his cheek... at the irony... Offense, he thought, sometimes was the best defense and tried to convince himself that he hadn’t just fled from Jack... However, Torchwood did a very good job hardening its employees: ignore or die. He ignored... and his hands shook so hard that Jack took the coffee from him...

“Deep breaths,” Jack was there, always so close... too close... just right, “we’ll be okay.” And... Ianto found himself in Jack’s arms clutching his shirt as though he were drowning... It wasn’t a revelation by any means. He had known, realized and thought he had made peace with the fact that part of his heart had been torn out, but Jack, still incredibly close and warm, had known all along: there would never be peace.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Fic dealing with the aftermath of Countrycide when Ianto is forgotten and things are worst than before with the added threat of past betrayal. This fic is an emotional ride where Ianto's past and some hidden secrets are brought into light, but it ends on a hopeful note.

Bear the warnings in mind for some disturbing imagery and implications.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto took a few minutes to sit by himself... Anyone observing him would have seen the swollen black eye, the bleeding cuts... A closer observer would have noticed the quick, shallow breathing... glazed eyes... the occasional shaking... Ianto, however, was practically invisible. It was a trait taught to him at his father’s knee... and... little Ianto would learn to internalize life... as... He quickly learned that by becoming invisible he could escape the bruises... bloody noses and the burns... At times like this, though, he wasn’t sure if he liked being invisible.

Being invisible today meant that he was ignored. In one respect that was good... It also meant, though, that everyone had apparently forgotten that mere hours ago he had almost joined the ranks of the fillet-ed... Ianto... broke through his... reverie. Slowly standing, all sound was cut off by the feeling of blood rushing in his ears. He steadied himself against the nearest tree, bracing himself... And that’s when the black spots came back again.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Sequel to Forgotten (recced at the top). The first half of this fic deals with Ianto/Tosh friendship that has been developing since the last fic and in the latter half, we have Jack trying to bring Ianto into the team by taking him to a UNIT conference on a mission to retrieve alien tech. Ianto is more assertive and so kick-ass in this fic, a total 180 from the submissive and passive Ianto of before. And Ianto/Tosh friendship is just so heartwarming!

Bear the warnings in mind.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

After Jack sent Mary to the sun, Ianto was left to interview Tosh. He was quiet, and considerate, rubbing her back as she cried and somehow coming up with an endless supply of tissues. He was kind, but thorough, the only one of the team not to blame Tosh for her indiscretion. Tosh was still raw, Ianto could see that; he knew the rawness, knew how it could eat at your soul... He’d remembered...

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well, this fic is one HECK of a roller-coaster ride! Having watched only the last two episodes of DW so far, I must admit that this fic can be made into actual cross-over episodes should anyone consider it! It's fast-pased and exciting and we meet characters that were lost to us again and that just made be cry others that just made me want to maim them... BUT! It's a marvelously written fic and very complex and so very exciting!

But at times, I was forced to wonder how multiple paradoxes didn't occur since characters... *coughJackcough* DO cross their parallel selves... ^^;; But even so, a MUST READ!

EXCERPT:

There was no simplicity left in the world... It was unbearable, the loneliness... There was so much out there... and most of it was out of reach... Torchwood dealt with the scum of the universe, not its wonders... there was something out there, something magnificent... but from where he was standing... it... couldn’t be farther away...

... As Ianto walked, a tremor swept violently through the city. The earth rumbled... and Ianto... thought he’d seen everything, but... that familiar, blindingly bright, blue and silver light tore through the sky, space, and time itself, causing... the world to collapse... a fresh wave of golden energy poured out of the Rift. Time itself came to a stop... and... all stared up at it in alarm... facing an abyss that threatened to consume them. And then... it was consuming them, pulling them off the ground and sucking them in like a vacuum... and... Seconds later they were hurtling through time and space.

EXCERPT:

They had every right to be angry, they’d been betrayed... They’d waited days for him to come back, only for him to disappear again. They’d been forced to learn how to survive on their own... they were more cohesive than ever. Stronger than ever before, but once again, Jack found himself at the end of their teamwork and anger.

On the other hand, Jack had equally every right to be angry and bitter. He’d originally been betrayed by the people who were now angry at him-and... he hadn’t quite gotten over the fact they’d killed him. Then, he’d gone... with the Doctor, only to be told he was wrong and spend the next year being called a freak and monster. He didn’t fault them for their human emotions... But Jack wasn’t the man who’d left them five months ago-a year for him. He considered himself strong and resilient, but he wasn’t unbreakable. And as he watched them all glare at him... he felt it for the first time-he was breaking.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Another Post-KKBB fic where Janto try to reconcile their fractured relationship. This might seem similar to [livejournal.com profile] 805belladonna's fic, Where Do We Go From Here? - recced HERE - but that's only in the initial chapter(s), so don't worry! ^^

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He spoke with his work voice: casual and slightly sarcastic, usually enough to make Jack melt completely. Usually. That tone of voice in the privacy of his flat was not common, and it was enough for Jack to sense danger.

“Ianto, we need to-“ Ianto cut across him again, standing up and turning, meeting his eyes.

“Later, Jack.” The tone was strong in Ianto’s voice, making Jack nod once before watching Ianto leave the room.

...

Ianto returned, a few minutes later, with two mugs of coffee... smiled briefly before leaving the room... He sighed heavily and moved off to his bedroom to go through the motions of finding Jack’s clothes. In reality, the drawer that Jack had filled with spare shirts, trousers and underwear had remained untouched in his absence. Ianto wasn’t ready for Jack to see just how much he’d missed him quite yet.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well, consider this the "missing scene" between TW 2x01 and 2x02, I guess. I'm sure at one point or another, we ALL wanted to know just how Janto resolved... err... STARTED on the path to resolving their infinite number of issues...

Anyway, I have a thing for vulnerable!Jack and protective!Ianto, so I've got both in here along with all the missing stuff! ^^

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I've got absolutely no idea what to say here, so I'll just use the author's words that it's "Pure unadulterated Jack & Ianto [smutty] fluff"... or is that 'fluffy smut?'...

... *shrugs* Anyway, smut and fluff with some dark and angsty pieces thrown-in every once in a while! ^___^ Another roller-coasting ride and most enjoyable! ^________^

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He was right.

Jack shut the door to Ianto’s flat at precisely 12.01 officially the next day. Padding across the dark flat, Jack felt awful. He felt as if he’d cheated on Ianto, which was stupid since he hadn’t. Not technically...

Jack felt exhausted - emotional women weren’t really his strong point but what made he feel even worse was the fact that Ianto had been so understanding. The way Ianto had been so reasonable about Jack disappearing so suddenly from his bed and then standing him up at both lunch and dinner. Jack sighed and leaning against the doorframe, stared into the bedroom... smiled slowly as he realised Ianto had very deliberately left Jack’s side of the bed clear... The fact Ianto was rolled so tightly in the cover and on the verge of falling off his side of the bed, showed to Jack far more than words could ever say.

Warnings: Post-Torchwood 1x13 "End of Days" and spoilers for 1x04 "Countrycide," 1x05 "Small Worlds," & 1x13 "End of Days," (Emotional) Torture, Sexual references
Comment or Excerpt from fic: O.H. M.Y. G.O.D.!! That is one disturbing, emotionally torturing!Ianto fic! The descriptions are most gorgeous and the pain is oh so vividly felt. Ianto's slow descent into madness is stemmed by the apparitions of Jack he keeps seeing, hearing... feeling...

It's so heartbreakingly painful to see it and it reduced me to tears.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He’d spent the better part of the past two weeks mooching around his office... But it gave Ianto the chance to explore the building’s intimate places like he’d never done before... wandering... pining, and discovering.

... he’d found out that there was a state between the hub sustaining itself and Lockdown. Like right now...

Ianto stared at the tendrils of feathering sapphire floating around... Blue light pulsating... Warbles of great aquamarine. Cold Northern Lights.

Ianto felt submerged beneath something greater than himself. Like a dot of sand trapped inside a pearl, rolling in the vast stomach of the ocean. His hand went out to touch a single thick ripple. Its slow undulations faded over his fingers, it fluttered and writhed, the air making love to his hand.

The hub seemed alive tonight.
