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.
Status: Complete
Length: 3
Warnings:
Violent Imagery, Sex, Torture, Implications of Stockholm Syndrome
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: 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: 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.

Comment: There's something about this fic that stuck with me. Maybe it was the underlying message at the end of the fic that Ianto and Jack were very similar people after all. Maybe it's the way Ianto pragmatically and stoically tries to regulate his emotions and behavior. Maybe it's the sneaky bit of implied Doctor/Master slash. Probably, it's the fact that this fic is just plain adorable. So, read and enjoy. This is comfort food fic at it's best.

Status: Complete
Length: ~20,000 words. 5 parts split into three LJ posts
Warnings: Multiple Character Deaths,
Comment or Excerpt from fic: [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill has surpassed herself. This fic is set in the Dead Like Me universe, but none of the DLM characters appear. The Doctor turns up on a number of occasions and his relationship with Jack and Ianto is beautiful.

I've read a lot of fan-fiction over the last few years but this is only the fourth to ever make me cry. It's fluffy and at times heartbreakingly sad. This is quite possibly one of the best stories I have ever read.

Excerpt: Ianto Jones died on a Monday night at exactly six thirty-seven p.m. This wouldn’t have been so remarkable if not for the fact that Ianto Jones was fated to exist for longer than almost any dead man in the known multiverse. This is his story.

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: Oh [livejournal.com profile] anduria_trianys just hits a few of my kinks with this fic... *starry eyed* As much as I adore mythology of any kind, I've first been introduced to Greek and I'm a fanatic in that sense! Anyway, I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that the rift has been acting crazy and been sending Janto through space and time. As the summary states, their latest trip brings them to Ancient Greece in the 10th year of the Trojan War. Being in a time and place where one doesn't belong puts them in a precarious position as is, but knowing what will happen, will Jack and Ianto let events occur in their natural order or will they attempt to chance events, inadvertently changing history as they know it, consequences and paradoxes be damned?

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He smiled as he recalled the little sojourn to Rome – the reign of Hadrian... Although, now he came to think about it... Ianto’s eyes widened in concern and he stared...

“... Last time I looked, Rome didn’t have a beach, so…where are we?”

Jack frowned. “We seem to be in the middle of the sea... but... then, I suppose the right question isn’t ‘Where are we?’ but ‘When are we?’ Because you’re right; this is not Rome – and those over there look to me like they could be Greek ships.”

... together they swam towards the shore... several tents and campfires came into view, all set up beside the ships. But what they saw as they came closer were several large wood pyres, some of them still smoking.

“My God!” exclaimed Jack. “Just – when are we?”

EXCERPT:

“Ianto... I need you…I need you to love me.”

Ianto... looked up... but still managed to appear beautifully confused. “Jack, surely you know I love you...”

“I don’t mean that... I just need you here... to hold you in my arms and... your chest against my heart.”

Ianto... realised what his partner was saying... saw the sheer depth of his emotions displayed openly... “Jack…” he whispered, drawing him into his arms... Jack’s arms were around him and he was leading him through the water in a tender dance to the music of the beating waves mirroring the rhythm of his heart.

“I’ve wanted to do this for so long,” Jack murmured into his hair... “Just…stand here, with you, doing what we’re doing... You and me, right here; holding each other and dancing in the Aegean…that’s all I want right now. I just want to be right here…just with you, right here.”

EXCERPT:

Spending three days at a large estate in the rolling hills of Scotland would have been ideal under any other circumstances, but being forced to attend a U.N.I.T. conference wasn’t Jack’s idea of a good time... His reverie was interrupted... “Ach, there you are Captain... Your Aide asked me to... let you know that he had arrived...”

“My AIDE?” Jack asked, dumbfounded... “Who the hell is passing themselves off as my Aide?”... As Jack strode along the wide corridors, he got angrier and angrier. Bloody U.N.I.T. was always interfering. The last thing he needed was some flunky paper pusher following him around for the next three days... He had barely stepped into his room... when he felt someone pinning him to the back of the door and kissing him with fierce intensity. Light bulbs and fireworks rocketed through Jack’s brain at the same time.

“Ianto, oh Ianto,” Jack whispered against the other man’s mouth.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: YES! I read this the first time on FF.net and fell immediately in love with it! The author's just transferring it over onto LJ, so until then, enjoy the fic! ^________^

The way the author writes Ianto is a special favorite of mine, but the interactions between the characters shows a change that they went through with their experiences. Meaning, Ianto is hardened more with the loss of Tosh and Owen as is Jack, and yet Ianto's strength is shown very beautifully. The Janto relationship is much stronger now as Jack is shown to be a tad bit more open and dependent on Ianto...

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Martha Jones was staring at her phone. More specifically... at her contacts trying to decide who to call. Who the hell was going to sort out this bloody mess?

The Doctor had somehow... managed to get himself trapped on some alien planet with a name that she couldn’t even attempt to pronounce. Then the TARDIS had malfunctioned and the only method of contact... had been Donna Noble’s mobile, which she had forgotten on board and... as of half an hour ago, run out of battery.

And as if things couldn’t get any worse Donna had turned up on her doorstep at 3AM... with the Doctor’s absent but never forgotten assistant Rose bloody Tyler and Rose bloody Tyler’s boyfriend, Rose bloody Tyler’s mother and Rose bloody Tyler’s father. She was starting to feel like she was living a supernatural episode of Eastenders, it was not in the least bit amusing.

Word Count: ~ 23,968 / 14 TOTAL
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is the author's take on the back-stage happenings of Jack and Ianto's relationship. I absolutely LOVE this story because like many of you, I very much dislike the fact that much of Janto relationship happens off-screen. They show it in fast-forward; a kiss under the pretense of CPR, then *BHAM!* proposition for sex, then *BHAM!*, then an actual kiss, then *BHAM!* date, etc. I mean, I can understand that they can't show everything because of time constraints and whatnot, but that doesn't stop me from being annoyed. Anyway, this is all that in slow-motion. The slow burn of heat and anticipation is enough to drive anyone crazy! But I love it, anyway! ^______^

Jack was back.

He’d barely had time to think about what that meant, let alone how he felt considering everything that had happened. The damned blowfish taunting him, his hands shaking so badly he wouldn’t have hit the wall with his bullet, much less the alien. Captain John Hart and his bloody diamond. God, the goose chase alone was enough to frustrate Ianto, but the attacks on the team. His team, his friends. Ianto drew in a deep breath to try and calm his rising anger.

Jack was back.

And Ianto hadn’t a clue what that meant yet.

I WANT JANTO TO HAVE ANOTHER BABY THROUGH JACK/WILL, TOO!! *bawls*), so here's hoping for good news from that front as the story progresses! So, Janto trying to get Jack pregnant and failing, a person from future TW3 comes to present TW3 via the rift, an enemy of future person (and future TW) follows said future person and starts killing people in the present... Think that's 'bout it for now! *grins*

Title: Long Weekend
Author: winterhill
Genre: Slight Angst, Fluff, Romance, Hurt/Comfort
Rating:PG-13
Other/Implied Pairings: Gwen/Rhys
Summary: Set several months after "Exit Wounds," Jack goes away for the weekend and Gwen and Ianto get a chance to bond.
Status: Complete
Chapters: 5 chapters, 22488 words
Comments and Exerpt from fic: [livejournal.com profile] guingel recced one of winterhill's other stories earlier (recced here) and that reminded me to rec this one.

This is a story that assumes a close friendship between Gwen, Ianto, and Jack post-"Exit Wounds", especially between Gwen and Ianto. Jack and Rhys both end up out of town at the same time and Gwen and Ianto decide to have a slumber party for a few days. Unfortunately nothing goes that smoothly when Torchwood is involved.

Jack is not really on-screen except for the very beginning of the 1st chapter, the 4th and 5th chapters, but the story is very much about Jack and Ianto and their relationship. Gwen acts as a deux ex machina for certain things, but for the most part it's just a story about Gwen wanting her two friends to be happy especially now that there are only 3 Torchwood members left.

Excerpt:

Ianto hugged her as she hung up the phone, resting against his shoulder.

“Rhys out of town for longer than he’d thought?” asked Ianto, ruffling Gwen’s hair.

“Yeah,” she replied, muffled by his suit jacket, and he kissed her temple.

“Need to spend some time at our place tonight?” he asked, and she nodded.

“If you don’t mind.”

“Of course I don’t mind,” replied Ianto. He knew how much Gwen hated it. Time to think on her own. He hated being alone too. Another piece of shit that Torchwood had contributed to their lives. “I don’t have Jack, either. We can have a sleepover, and eat popcorn and watch crap movies.”

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Oh JEEZ! Just how is it that I tend to always find all the dark fics... U____U Kinda ironic with me being a romantic and loving happy endings, no matter how impossible they may be at times... *LOL*

Anyway, this is a wonderfully dark fic extended from 2x05 "Adam" and based on the idea of Ianto remembering his RetConned memories of killing those girls...

WORD OF CAUTION... DO read the warnings because it is a VERY DARK fic...

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

It had been a week since the nightmares had begun.

A week of far too little sleep, and what little sleep he did get could not be called restful.

A week of suppressed rage.

A week of fear.

A week of seeing a killer in the mirror.

He’d tried to convince himself that the nightmares were just night terrors brought on by a stressful, and occasionally horrific, job.

...

But they were far too real.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I have to admit that I was quite reluctant to add this story to the recs, not because it's BAD (cuz it's brilliant!), but because it was beyond DARK and I was seriously tempted to stop reading every once in a while since it just kept getting darker and darker. It was heartbreaking the whole first three chapters and a majority of the fourth. Funny thing being that as I was reading the first third of chapter 1, I was tempted to just keep the warnings a secret (because I was seriously under the impression that it had kinky Master/Slave sex... It's Jack and Ianto, so I'm sure you see where I got the impression from and forgive me for that soon to be proven wrongful assumption) and just look at the title! It doesn't give even the slightest clue! Then I get to the end of the one-third marker and realize that it's got some VERY shady subjects already, but it doesn't seem so bad...

-___-;; Let's just say that in the progression of reading the fic, I realized how extremely short-sighted I was; the fic's too f*cking traumatizing (because unlike the fic The Oncoming Storm, you don't have some 17+ chapters to get used t... err... come to terms with the warnings), so it's safer it just be blunt and tell you...

... USE EXTREME CAUTION!! It's REALLY not for the faint of heart, so if you're squeamish even the slightest, then be smart and DON'T read it!

If there was a higher rating, I would likely use that since NC-17 seems too less...

Status: Complete
Length: Multichapter, 4 Chapters
Warnings: angst, h/c, public sex, slavery
Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is a fic where Jack and Ianto have to pretend to be master/slave, and I know it sounds like an old cliche but the author did it so well, with great characterization, excellent execution and interesting plot. It was truly a great treat to read this fic, seriously. Perfect Perfect Perfect!!! (I was truly surprised nobody's recced this one before) :D

"Ianto!" Jack yelled, rushing forward. He tried to reach for the other man's flailing hands to stop him from falling into the hole but couldn't get a hold of them. The device slipped from Ianto's fingers and landed on the tiled ground with a clatter. Then the hole closed with a hollow sound, swallowing the other man along with it.


"No!" Jack hit the solid ground with his knees, brushing his hands frantically across the stone surface as if he could coax it to open up again and release the man it had just taken away. Gwen appeared at his side, brushing her hair back.

Rating: R-rated
Summary: “What do you mean, ‘don’t say it’?” Owen gestured to the monitor. “I’m staring at your fucking – I don’t even know what to call it! I don’t know how it happened! Bloody hell, just when I thought I couldn’t miss drinking any more than I already did.”
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Warnings: MPREG
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Okay, don't let my summary of the fic fool you (The author didn't have a summary) This is an EXCELLENT MPREG FIC, one of the most In Character  mpreg fics that I've ever read.  Exactly how I would imagine Ianto taking the news, and I love it that he doesn't become a crybaby/emotional and stuff, he takes it normally and doesn't want anyone to see how scared he is, he's not panicking in front of anyone and stuff and I love how Jack becomes so supportive and that it seemed he wants the baby more than Ianto did. (And I like it when he's protective):D And the reason why Ianto got pregnant? totally possible in the Torchwood Universe. For people who don't like MPREG, I STILL URGE U TO READ THIS NOW!

Title: PTSD: Post Torchwood Stress Disorder
Author: [profile] smallwaldo
Genre: General, Romance, Angst
Rating: R
Summary: It's been two and a half years since Canary Wharf. It's been a year since Lisa. And Jack is just now realizing what the real toll has all been on Ianto and the other survivors of Torchwood One. Now he needs to fix a big thing done badly before anyone else dies.
Status: Complete
Length: 7 Chapters, ~22283
Warnings: suicide themes
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Wow, this fic really impressed me, especially because it's a plot/theme which hasn't been written a lot in this fandom and I'm so glad someone finally did write a good, in character fic about the survivors of Canary Wharf and how they coped with the tragedy, especially Ianto. Loved the Original Characters and how they're all so close with each other, sort of like a family. I also love how Ianto wants to be strong for everyone but breaks down and how Jack is so worried about him and wants to be there for him. *sniff* This has got to be one of my favorite fics ever...
The link takes you to part 6, which has all the previous parts linked except part 7 which is the entry following that one.
