Title: Nortorious
Author: [livejournal.com profile] blue_fjords
Genre: Action/Adventure, Suspense, Thriller
Rating: NC-17
Summary: An homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious, 1940s melodrama/suspense. Ianto goes undercover. Jack reacts.
Status: Complete
Length: 12,000 words in two parts
Warnings: Ianto/OFC
Comment: Ianto is remarkable for many reasons, but one thing that has always stood out in the minds of many fans is how easily he was able to con his way into a position in Torchwood Three- as well as a position in Jack's life. He conned the con-man, and that takes skills. This fic is wonderful because it not only showcases those skills, but Jack's reactions to watching someone else succumb to them.
Excerpt from fic:
“This castle is quite lovely, though I imagine it would be extremely hard to heat in the winter, what with all of the concealed nooks and crannies,” she said.

How subtle, Jack’s voice sounded in his ear. “It is, at that. Still, we wouldn’t want our Castle any other way, I’m sure. Ianto Jones,” he proffered his hand. “I’m with the Welsh Tourism Board.”

She laughed a little tinkly laugh and took his hand. “Alexandra Sebastian. I dabble in antiques – restoration, procurement, that sort of thing.” Her hand was soft but her grip was hard.

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.

I love this so much. It's really plotty and interesting, and the interactions between Jack and Ianto are just so sweet. Link to chapter 1 below.

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.

EXCERPT:

It was apparent that Gates had been working with the Pharm and the Copley brothers... and... he’d continued to develop the... virus... to raise funds... “The bastards used the virus to draw us out... It was a trap all along...”

“Gates can’t be working on his own.” Tosh shook her head slowly, there was something going on that bothered her. “There must be others.”

“I agree, if he was on the casualty list of the Battle of Canary Wharf... there could be others... you and Ianto... Ianto to go through the lists – see what you can dig up.” Jack looked apologetic, but there was no alternative.

Ianto took in a deep breath, he knew exactly what that entailed and... it could only mean trouble... he stood up slowly and... turned to look at Jack, trying to convey in a glance that he knew that it was unavoidable and that he accepted the task. He could make out the words ‘I’m sorry’ on Jack’s lips and nodded.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well, nothing more amusing than a jealous and possessive Jack and I do so love watching him stumble! XD

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

The thing about working for Torchwood was that there was not the time to take a couple of weeks out to reconnect with your team, make them understand why you left them, or get them to believe you weren’t leaving them again.

You would be lucky to even have time to think about taking your favourite of them on the date you had spent the last six months hanging from a set of shackles and fantasising about (however lacklustre it had sounded when you actually had chance to propose the idea).

Aliens looking to mess with the Earth’s infrastructure had no respect for romance, it seemed to Jack.

Jack was not entirely correct.

EXCERPT:

The members of the class turned and stared at the new comer in surprise. A few of them laughed when they saw his attire; he was wearing a light blue shirt, navy trousers and a long great coat.

"If you could please take your seats," he indicated to the desks... He received some incredulous looks from students until he placed the briefcase on the teacher’s desk and shrugged out of his coat, showing the class that he was wearing red braces over his shirt. It was only when he slid into the chair that students started to believe that he actually was a teacher...

Essays were handed back to students and Ianto glared at the back of the teacher’s head when he discovered a large ‘D’ scrawled on the front...

"I think you’re taking this whole thing far too seriously," Ianto commented the second the door was closed.
