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.

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.

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.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: WOW! This fic is just WOW! Having not watched even an episode of Doctor Who (though I'm, more or less, aware of the events), I can tell that this is a very, very dark take on what-has-been and how-it-could-have-gone...

I don't recommend this for the faint of heart, because sometimes... most of the time, it just gets very...

EXCERPT:

'I bring life.'..

It was with a gasp, Jack Harkness returned to life, to awareness. He staggered to his feet, shaking fists up already because his last memory was…

Gone...

Jack could hear its hum, like a beacon. He was about to call out to the doctor and froze at the end of the hallway. Stunned, Jack watched the TARDIS fade until the last sight he saw was its blue police siren light twirling, twirling until even that was gone.

"Doctor…"

Title: [profile] ouvretesyeux: Open Your Eyes - a Jack/Ianto AU Storyline
Author: [profile] maverick0324 
and [personal profile] athousanderrors
Genre:
series, AU, drama, romance, angst
Rating: PG to NC-17
Summary: Set from 1936 right up to the present day, it follows a rather different Jack and Ianto, from their time at St Boswell's School for Boys, through their service in World War Two right up to their dotage in Cardiff, with every trial and tribulation in between.
Status: WiP
Length: 35 chapters, plus 2 extra about other characters. There have also been drabbles and AU stories written about it by other authors. You can find the list of everything here.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Oh my God, where do I start? The world needs more AU fic like this. The era it's set in has been well-researched by the authors, the OCs feel like canon, and the story is just beautiful. I could gush all day. XD

At 35 chapters, it can seem a bit daunting, but once you get into it (and you will, promise), it's hard to get out. I read them all straight through in one sitting, and impatiently await the next chapter (hint to the writers if they're reading this... >_>)

Preview: He broke the kiss, blushing still, lips parted as he gasped, eyes closed. “This is wrong.” He breathed, brows knitted in confusion. “I shouldn’t…” He opened his eyes, looking at Jack. Giving in, he dragged Jack closer with a hand at the back of his neck, kissing him hungrily.

Now he knew why things had been so awkward. Why had missed Jack’s presence so much. It wasn’t just the company, it was the secret smiles, the comforting pressure of a strong body against his side, soft laughter in his ear as they lay on the roof.

And this…he didn’t know how he could miss this, he’d never had it. But oh, somehow he had.

Title: Another World
Author: Blucougar57
Genre: Drama/Sci Fi
Rating: T (Suitable for teens, 13 years and older, with some violence, minor coarse language, and minor suggestive adult themes.)
Summary: A rash of inexplicable murders leads to a clash of cultures when a secretive agency moves in on NYPD territory, and Bobby Goren finds he may well have met his match in the mysterious Captain Jack Harkness...
Status: WIP
Length: 107,813 words
Warnings: Some violence and graphic scenes.
Comment: Blucougar's Another World is one of my favorite Torchwood fics to date. There's a lot to this story. It's long, and extremely well written. This fic manages to be both a character piece and to have an exceptional plot - usually stories tend one way or the other. It's also a crossover with Law and Order: Criminal Intent, but don't let that scare you away. The fic strikes a fair balance between the two shows, with perhaps a bit more focus on the Torchwood team. I'm not familiar with the Law and Order fandom, really, but I found it easy to slip into this fic. And of course it's Jack/Ianto, heaped on top of a mighty serving of angst as Jack tries to cope with the fallout from the year that never was, while leading his team and trying to catch a monster. And Ianto's there for him, which is written in a really sweet, believable way.

Rating: NC-17
Summary: This is the requisite ‘Jack’s back’ story.
Status: Complete
Length: Over 100,000 words – Multiple Chapters

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I have read Lazuli’s work in multiple fandoms and have always enjoyed not only her character development, but her ability to create storylines that draw me in and make me ever want to leave.

An excerpt. )

ETA: Excerpt changed at the request of the author, as I was spoiling the plot. Still an outstanding scene, though!
