Title: Five complaints that Ianto Jones has thought about registering concerning Torchwood (and one that he did)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] strangecreature
Genre: Five Things, Angst, Hurt/Comfort
Rating: R
Summary: The author describes the story as "Crashing around behind the scenes for a wide swath of the first season."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I admit, I'm a huge sucker for the "Five Things" format. Bias aside, though, this is a really good sample of the genre, using the format as a frame and as inspiration, not as a crutch. The story begins during Ianto's first weeks at Torchwood Three and follows the progress of his relationships with the team--and Jack--up through the events of the first season. The "complaints" fit in nicely with Ianto's sense of humor--and sarcasm. It's a nicely well-written and subtle story.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This story snuck up on me. I started reading it and certainly thought it was good, but as the story unfolded I found myself absolutely drawn in and held fast. It's beautifully written, showing Ianto as the more-than-slightly screwed up person he is without taking him out of character. The build-up to the end was very well-done, and the end itself was a perfect grace note to a wonderful story.

Summary: "Ianto’s numb, and he likes it that way"
Status: Complete, 2335 words
Warnings: Sex and heartbreak
Comment: Set post Cyberwoman and Countrcide, Ianto is trying to come to terms with losing his girlfriend *and* nearly being eaten by cannibals. This fic is one of the few that I have read that actually explores how horrific and traumatic this would be for Ianto and appreciates what anyone would have to do to stay sane. Really heartbreaking and genuine with some Jack and Ianto soapy shower fun thrown in there too. Best fic I have read this year so far [and believe me, I don't get out much].

"Time passed in Torchwood as time always did: noisily, messily, and with a great deal of shouting. He was numb to most of it."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Oh GOD! SO MANY ANGSTY FICS! T____T But, there’s hope yet since this fic starts out angsty, but ends on a hopeful tone (if one doesn’t think about all that happens the rest of S1, anyway… *coughs*). So, this is the author’s take on how Janto relationship changed through the course of S1 (atleast until after “Countrycide”).

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack had never felt as used as he had in the beginning of his relationship with Ianto. The occasional shag without any promise of a repeat, with absolutely no emotional attachment.

Of course, he didn’t realise why until later, and by the time he did, he didn’t begrudge Ianto because of it. The young man had been in emotional turmoil - every second of the day that he was alive and sane was a blessing. His mind tore him in two and his heart just made the fight worse.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Strangely enough, for me, the question of whether Janto's (sexual) relationship started before TW S1 or not depends on my mood, and I’ve read all versions. Regardless, I do like Erin’s take on how things started between them, the slow build-up of feelings and emotions.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

There was something about Jack Harkness - always had been. Ever since he’d unquestioningly tried to catch the man... trying to subdue a pterodactyl Ianto couldn’t deny there was something... 51st Century pheromones Jack had said and Ianto had thought it was a line, although... it was probably the truth. Ianto hadn’t been thinking of Lisa as he lay on top of Jack... laughter on his lips and Jack’s hot breath on his face... It was overwhelming Ianto’s senses now… he leaned in to kiss Jack tenderly, pulling back slightly and resting his forehead against Jack’s. He breathed in deep, inhaling Jack’s scent one last time before pulling away to look meaningfully in Jack’s eyes.

“Thank you.” Ianto breathed, before... turning to leave. Jack didn’t move until he heard the cog door rolling back... letting out a long sigh... hee... turned to the decanter on his desk, but at the last minute changed his mind. He wanted – needed – sleep, and as he lay between the sheets that night he thought of life and not death.

Comment or Excerpt from fic:

A red welt curling at the back of his neck, finger-shaped marks on his arms and wrists, an uneven cut on his forehead. Many wounds that should have been kissed better, soothed and caressed and forgotten through other kinds of touch.

Not that Jack would dare, not so soon after Lisa. Ianto still hasn't stopped flinching whenever Jack touches him; every clap on the back and nudge of the arm producing a momentary tensing in his shoulders. It's not enough to make Jack stop, of course, not when Ianto so clearly needs to be reminded that he is still a member of this team, still appreciated and needed and touched with the same fondness that Jack touches everyone else. But it keeps Jack from suggesting anything more, from letting his hands linger too often.

Jack smiled warmly. "That's fine," he said. "Because I really, really needed someone to start on the annual expenditure report anyway." He ignored Owen's groan and Ianto's belated "Oh, but I wouldn't mind starting on the-" and headed to the door. "Perk of being the boss," he said. "I get to pick. Ianto-" he glanced at Ianto, and Ianto felt his heart sink even more. "You're with me." "Tosh, could you stay and provide intel?"

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.

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: I can't believe I forgot to rec this fic! U.U Anyways, this is the author's take on TW S1 and (hopefully) eventually S2! It mostly follows canon events, but the author modifies it enough to be AU, especially the beginning chapters... and it's a BRILLIANT fic and long as hell! *_____*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

When a job went wrong, go back to the beginning.

Good advice, Ianto had always thought. And no job had ever gone as wrong as completely and as spectacularly as Torchwood. How many last days at a job were filled with destruction, tears and blood? But how to go back to the beginning, he had wondered. Torchwood was gone, burned, might as well salt the earth and walk away.

But Ianto hadn’t been able to let go for the simplest and most dangerous of reasons – love. Lisa was still alive and he had sworn to save her... He woke with tears... again. Lying there, unable to summon the strength... he let his mind wander. What to do, where to go, who to trust, how to find help… And then Vizzini’s rule crept into his mind. Go back to the beginning…Torchwood…the beginning… And Ianto knew what he had to do.

Torchwood. That meant Torchwood Three. That meant Cardiff…and Captain Jack Harkness.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Wow, this fic is awesome, there are no other words for it. Excellent Ianto-centric fic that deal with Ianto wanting to be more useful and wanting to learn more from Jack, and Jack giving in and sending Ianto for training. But then there are more stuff happening that I won't get into since they're like, part of the plot. :D But yea, this is more of a General fic, but it has Jack/Ianto subtext and and Ianto was so awesome in this and the writer did such an awesome job that I just had to rec it. :D
_____________

They'd barely spoken since that day, which made it all the more surreal that Jack found himself turning towards Ianto after he stopped the car, and asked, “Will you be alright?” and Ianto responded,

“Sure.” He sounded tired, and so very soulsick. “Not the first time someone's threatened to cut me up after all. Admittedly, though, the fact that they were cannibals was a little bit different.”

Jack froze, hands clenched on the steering wheel. He made no move to touch Ianto, knowing it wouldn't be appreciated, and for a second, forgot to breathe. “Canary Wharf?”

He half expected Ianto to not answer, to get out of the car and go into his house without looking back, but after a moment, Ianto sighed, and leaned his head backwards on the headrest, looking towards the felted roof. “Yes,” he said, simply.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is a brilliantly written fic that begins with a little back-story of how Flat Holm came to be, but mostly follows Ianto and how he came to know about it and all the way through Adrift when Gwen finds-out it and the aftermath. I LOVE how the fic flows, especially with time-skips it has. Very beautiful and emotional.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He’d told him about Flat Holm after the cannibals. Suzie had known... had helped him to organize it all. The idea was Jack’s... but Suzie ran the rest... Then she was gone... It was a lot of work... more than it looked like, and he was used to having help... he considered his options. He could tell no one... But that wasn’t really in the realm of possibility, because he knew they were nearing the time when a suitable version of the Doctor might show up, and if he kept it to himself there was no one to take care of the victims at Flat Holm. That and the more selfish, pressing reason: Jack couldn’t do it alone... he could not handle going to see the victims on his own...

Option two, tell... Ianto. Ianto, both youngest and oldest... betrayer and betrayed, wise and yet so young... Jack... wondered what the hell he was supposed to do, when a... voice... said, “Jack? What’re you doing?”

“I need your help, Ianto.”

Comment or excerpt from fic: Well, no prizes for guessing who's lj I've been stalking lately. Found my way there via one of [livejournal.com profile] beachan18's former recs and it truely is a treasure trove of Janto goodness. This one is post-Countryside (a personal favourite) and I particularly like Jack's care in his handling of Ianto following the events of Cyberwoman and then Countryside. For once he demonstrates patience and restraint which of course is all very well...but it's lovely when he lets baser Jack finally come out to play too :)

~*~*~*

He watches Ianto move slowly around the Hub, pausing to breathe heavily whenever Owen whirls past him with an accidental bump, or when reaching for a extra box of camomile tea on the top shelf (Gwen has taken to drinking herbal teas in the evening and proselytises about the effects despite constant mocking from Owen) causes his jacket to pull too tightly across his shoulders. Jack keeps his hands to himself, refrains from even a friendly brush of hands on the lower back and the spread of warmth it would produce.

He is careful with Ianto, keeping a safe distance between them so that Ianto knows he won't be suddenly attacked (Jack has taken to keeping his hands behind his back when talking to Ianto, which causes great hilarity among the rest of the team), but also asking questions, paying attention, making it clear that Ianto is valued.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well, takes place quite early in S1 of the series, so can't really say "established relationship," I guess, but Jack is very much "fond" of his Ianto and the lust and desire for each other is not lacking. Anyway, Ianto is waiting for Jack to be back form wherever the hell he went to only for him to come back drunk and reeking of sex. I'm in a romantic mood and taking [livejournal.com profile] dvanulya's explanation into consideration, so what follows is... Ianto jumps to conclusion, gets pissed, calls Jack a "fucking bastard" a couple of times, Jack tries to explain patiently that the smell of sex isn't the "SMELL OF SEX" since it's just his pheromones and being drunk and wanting Ianto is making them go all over the place, Ianto melts, they decide to get down to business and make arrangements! ^_____________^

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto wondered what would happen if he just left... Because Jack seemed to have no problem leaving them... this was ridiculous. He had been here, being the homebody, being domestic, for hours, waiting for Jack to come back from wherever he was tonight. Jack just assumed that Ianto would be here... even if he was gone days.

And Ianto would. But that didn’t mean he would be happy when Jack finally deigned to show up, which he did at 4:43 in the morning, catching Ianto de-scaling the coffee machine and scowling.

“Ianto. Still here? Or back for more?” Jack was leering... Luckily, Jack had 51st century reflexes to go along with the pheromones. With his left hand he neatly caught the fist four inches before it connected with his left eye; with the right he caught Ianto’s jaw and stroked lightly over the smooth skin there. Ianto had shaved, he mused. His Ianto, waiting there, shaving for him. For hours. Waiting just for him.

It isn’t just because he brought the materials that had brought down Torchwood One to Torchwood Three, it is because Ianto continues to mourn over a woman who had died nearly a year before. Jack wants that fierce loyalty for himself and he desperately misses the nights full of Ianto trapped beneath him, feeling Ianto’s heartbeat slow against his cheek.

... Jack snarls... unfinished. Jack doesn’t want to... let his fucking weak-kneed crush on Ianto leak out.

Now this is really quite pathetic, Harkness. Jack scolds himself.

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.

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.

So, a journey for our beloved Janto.

I'm more than ready for the ride! ^___^

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

When he recovers his senses, Ianto’s arms feel better around him than any have in quite some time. Sensitive fingers stroke his hair. He kisses his way up Ianto’s throat. Smiles down at his new lover.

Ianto kisses him, smiling too. And for a few brief, happy moments there’s no past and no future and no grief and no monsters, just the joy of being right here, right now, together.

It can’t last -- nothing ever does when you outlive everyone -- but Jack decides as he kisses Ianto again that he really doesn’t care. Eventually, the kid will leave and go find the kind of sane, settled life he deserves. Eventually, the Doctor will return and Jack will forgive him for leaving. Eventually, he’ll return to the stars and leave Torchwood in competent hands.

But in the meantime...

Comments/Excerpts from fic: This story is full of wonderful moments and sharp insight into how a relationship between Jack and Ianto could develop and how it grows despite both of their best efforts. The characterization of Jack and Ianto in this story are so spot on there are moments that you think you're reading canon. And there are moments where you ARE reading canon. This follows Series 1 so thoroughly from "Countryside" on so when you get deja vu about some dialogue, etc. it really is moments from the series. *g*

_______________________________________
Jack slowed the car down a bit and stretched his left arm back to pat Ianto reassuringly on the leg. The second he made contact with Ianto's body the other man jerked away with a strangled scream and kicked out. Jack was so surprised he snatched the wheel and had a hard time to steady the car again.

Ianto was still screaming and had scrambled back to the far corner of the car. His gaze was unfocused, he was trembling and when Jack hit the brakes and the car came to a sliding stop, Ianto opened the door and tumbled out of the car.

"Ianto!" Jack shouted and hurried to undo his seatbelt.

When Jack got out of the car, Ianto had already run half way across the field that lay next to the street. Not making one mistake twice, Jack shut the door of the SUV and locked it, before he set after him.

"Ianto!" He shouted again, but got no response.
