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.

Title: First Time for Everything
Author:  [livejournal.com profile] criccieth 
Genre:  backstory, angst, drama, ect
Rating:  NC-17
Summary: All relationships have their stages and their first moments
Status: Incomplete, looooong
Warnings: Sex, domestic abuse, suicide attempts
Comment: This isn't the sort of background I normally buy for Ianto, but the details and emotions are so vivid here that it's hard not to buy it. The story is shaping up to be complicated and full of interesting interactions between Jack and Ianto, some of which looks like it has/is going to involve a sort of time travel. Updates are long in coming, but seeing as the length of each section is ridiculous, I'm not going to complain too much.

Excerpt:
For two years Ianto has been doing his best to forget, to bury the memories. And now, if Harkness does turn out to want what Oliver wanted…It won’t be the same, he tells himself firmly. Won’t be trapped. Won’t be a prisoner this time. As soon as she’s better, we’ll leave. Slowly, his hands stop shaking. Lisa, he reminds himself. It’s for Lisa. Whatever it takes, remember? Doesn’t matter what it costs. You can handle it. It’s for her. But he feels so cold.

OUCH!

Title: Repair In Route 
Author: Otrame
Genre: Angst, Dark, Drama, Hurt/Comfort
Rating: NC-17
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.

Title: Things Rank and Gross Possess It Merely
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.
Excerpt:
And, of course, it's not like Jack's having a fun time either... )

Title: A Warning Sign
Author: mclachland
Characters: Owen, OFC

Summary: "Because the future isn't set in stone. Because there are some futures that can be changed. And because there are some that should be changed."
Length: 2,673
Status: Complete
Fprmat: Oneshot
Commentary: This could be summarized as "Owen talks with Jack and Ianto's daughter from the future" the same way that you could summarize From Which All Things Came as "Ianto has something in his eye". On the one hand, yes, that's basically the plot, but on the other, you'd be missing out if you thought that was all it was. Like all of mclachland's stuff, it's subtle, and it's deep, and, at times, it's painful. It's also one of those stories which you read and instantly want more of, but at the same time it has a sense of completeness that you don't want to disturb. I highly recommend it.

Warnings: Jack/OMC, domestic abuse
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.

EXCERPT:

Ianto... could feel something cold settling in his stomach and he didn't like it.

Owen jumped off the side of the table and came round to look him squarely in the face. "Quick, Ianto, what happened last night?... Do you remember leaving the Hub?"

Now that Ianto focused on it, no he didn't... Why couldn't he remember driving home? He shook his head.

... "Shit." Owen said again, then launched himself toward the medical bay.

"Wait," Ianto said following him. "What's going on?"

"I have a fairly good guess." Owen called over his shoulder.

Ianto had a guess, too, but it didn't make any sense. "Retcon?..." That sense of dread was descending over him, like he was standing over a precipice... and was just about to realize how far a drop it was. "That's not possible..."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Some concepts taken from an earlier story named I'll Follow You Into the Dark recced by myself HERE. This is probably one of THE most disturbing, horrific, and twisted stories I've EVER read! The material is just so squeamish and the author magnificently molded this from the very depths of a distorted and demented mind... I LIKE!! XD

Jack's desperation and then pain towards the end is very poignant and the depth of Ianto's insanity as it over-takes him just... *shudders*

So, PLEASE READ THE WARNINGS!

It's an absolutely BRILLIANT fic! Utterly INSANE, but BRILLIANT none-the-less! As far as I know, she's the only author to have delved into the realms of "necrophilia."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is one of the very few stories with the most roller-coasting ride of Jack and Ianto's relationship that I've ever read. It's seems to be a "one step forward, two [sometimes more] steps back" situation and it's quite DARK and very ANGSTY and depressing and just when you think they've come to some kind of resolution, they're interrupted either by the phone, the comm, the alarms... GWEN! >________<

I'm waiting for some happiness, especially for Ianto! *huggles tightly*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto felt his stomach knot as he saw the mix of expressions playing across Jack’s face – concern, worry and worse of all the hint of hopeful anticipation. Ianto quickly turned away fighting to keep his voce normal... and... Ianto watched Jack walk away for him and across to Gwen and it killed him...

... ”I’m not a fool, Jack. I know you and she...it’s so obvious…I mean if she wasn’t with Rhys then who knows…” his voiced faltered and he looked away, his statement hanging in the air.

Jack didn’t know how to respond. He wanted to grab the younger man, to tell him he was wrong, that he felt nothing for Gwen…but he’d be lying. He did feel something for Gwen. He couldn’t deny it even if he wanted to. But the fact Ianto could read it so easily unnerved him...

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This fic takes place during "Exit Wounds," particularly from the point of John's arrival into the hub that had him at Ianto's gunpoint. This is a much darker take on the actual episode since it delves into Gray's psychotic nature and shows just how far and deep he's consumed by the darkness and insanity. The fic is modified a bit to allow these changes, hence the slight AU-ness. Also, BEAR IN MIND THE WARNINGS SINCE THEY'RE QUITE GRAPHICALLY DESCRIPTIVE AND AS SUCH, REALLY NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

A young man came... ambling down the cell corridor... His clothes were grey and padded... Ianto could see the resemblance between Grey and Jack... There was a brutal scar on... his face and neck... his blue eyes... steely...

Grey... moved... to stand in front of Ianto. “Ianto Jones. Loyal, pretty Ianto Jones. Eye Candy, John calls you... John told me all about each and every one of you!... gave me everything I needed to know to take Jack’s life apart... told me about Owen Harper, the cynical doctor... about Toshiko Sato, the delicate technical genius... Lovely PC Gwen Cooper, so heartbreakingly in love with Jack... And you, Ianto Jones, the faithful office fuck... You really are so very, very pretty.” Twiddling with his own wrist device, Ianto’s cell door suddenly popped open. “Come out, pretty office fuck,” Grey said, crooking a finger.

“Come in and get me,” Ianto snapped, unbuttoning his coat and tensing his muscles.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: How Jack kept himself sane while being buried alive. :( So sad...
________________________________________________________________________________
For the first century, Jack played games with himself. He made a list of all the lovers he could remember, which was a startlingly long list (even to him), given that he knew he’d forgotten some. Then he reconstructed what each of them looked like. Then he tried to remember everything he could about their likes, their dislikes. Then he tried to remember every conversation with each and every one of them, how they’d looked, how they’d said what they said, how they’d smelled. Like coffee and sea spray and the starch in his collars.

He refused to think of Ianto. He was saving him for later.

Surprisingly, the List of Lovers and All Things Pertinent to Same actually took a hundred years. That was a relief. Maybe he’d get through this only partially insane, not completely demented, like he feared.

HEED MY WARNINGS!

It is an angsty, dark, graphic description of slow, painful death by radiation poisoning and there's not even a speck of WAFF until the last part of the very last chapter, so if you're looking for some light reading, this part of the series is not for you...

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is a “kind-of” sequel to Snippet 1.1: Connect the Dots… I was unsure on how to post and decided to do both as different posts.

Much angst, more than its counterpart, it delves into the complication of Jack being pregnant with chicken-pox… It’s ends hopeful and happy, though! ^^

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is one of the most gorgeously written Janto fic series I've ever read... AM reading (since it's a WIP at the moment)! Starting off pre-series, it's got mystery and it's so intriguing and it's roped me in hook, line, and sinker!! There's an underlying plot that has been introduced, but hasn't yet been expanded on (yet) and it looks bigger than anything we could imagine as of yet... *twitches in excitement* And the characterization is just... GUH!! For now, this fic accentuates the relationship between Jack and Ianto, and it's wonderfully crafted... I can hardly wait for the rest!! ^^

The stories are posted in chronological order and are written by Teach with Andi ([livejournal.com profile] andromeda05) foraying into this world every once in a while!

Rating: NC-17
Other/Implied Pairings: Ten/Ianto
Summary: Jack comes back that little bit too late to save Ianto from being kidnapped by aliens.
Status: COMPLETE

Word Count: 20,791
Warnings: Abuse, BDSM, Non-Con, Slavery, Rape, Torture, Violence, implied Threesome
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...
