Title: Coffee Confessions
Summary: The progression of Jack and Ianto's relationship from anger to lust, and finally to something more.
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! ^______^

Title: Journey to Jack
Summary: After Captain John Hart leaves and the team have to avoid themselves, Ianto tries to come to terms with Jack's return.
Word Count: ~ 23,811 / 14 Interlude TOTAL
Comment or Excerpt from fic: These are TW S2 gap stories using BBC's Captain's Blog, very much similar the the S1 ones named "Coffee Confessions" recced HERE. It starts with Post-KKBB and goes from there!

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

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.

Warnings: Post Torchwood 1x12 "Captain Hack Harkness," mentions of war and death
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Set in the Fear ‘Verse. This is the second of this verse that I'm reading and it's nothing like the previous. Just like the episode itself, the fic is just so emotional and painful and poignant and just... *huggles both Jack and Ianto tightly*

This episode always make me cry, both with superficial wounds and underlying ramifications...

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He supposed it was a like reading a book: you could cry over the end where the hero died, and then you could flick back to the beginning and resurrect him again, but you knew in your heart that his fate was ever going to be the same. Captain Jack Harkness was doomed to an anonymous death and nothing Jack could have done would have stopped that without tearing the delicate fabric of space and time to shreds, but that didn’t stop it from hurting.

“You should sleep.” He muttered, needing time to think. Ianto nodded once, gravely, his expression unreadable, and left, leaving Jack feeling even emptier than before.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I WAS thinking that Caz was gonna leave "MAMoT" and was gearing-up to nag her until she either wrote an epilogue and/or a sequel. Glad I don't have to do that anymore as she decided on the latter... *cheeky grin*

Also, glad it wasn't what I thought it was at the end of "MAMoT"... I was seriously freaking-out! *glares at Caz*

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Sequel to Learn From the Past, Live For the Future and fourth story in this series. Very exciting story so far and it looks to be action-packed! Of course, first you'll have get through roughly two chapters of heartbreak (so far... 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*

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I swear, I never realized just how hard it is to write summaries to fics! I have special respect for authors now... *LOL* ^^;;

Now, about the fic... It is a beautifully written one! Just one of those fics that make me want to sigh dreamily and melt into a puddle of goo. It is a gorgeous extension based off of the whole last-dance with the original Captain Jack Harkness and the now!Jack's feelings on that matter. I loved how the author incorporated the songs and the feelings into the now and her vulnerable!Jack is wonderful to see, especially when there is a strong!Ianto there to hold-up and bind the pieces of a broken man with his love and understanding. Of course, her perceptive!Tosh is a plus! ^.^

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He closed his eyes trying to block the song from his brain. It didn’t work. All he could feel was the emotion of that dance he’d shared, that one kiss before he’d been ripped back to the present day...

“The last time I heard that song, I…” he paused unsure how to put it in words... “I lost someone”... “We danced to that song…he died the next day and there was nothing I could do to save him”...

Pausing to flick the music switch... Ianto held his hand out saying, “Come on, Jack, you said you loved this song” he caught Jack’s hand and smiled slowly, “You said the last time you danced to this was with someone you loved. That means you shouldn’t hate the song” he paused, his thumb rubbing Jack’s palm as he spoke, soothing some of the pain with just a touch, “You should cherish it.” He hesitated unsure how Jack would react to his next comment, “Dance with me in his memory?”
