Genre: Angst, Gen
Rating: Teen
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Warnings: Spoilers for Children Of Earth
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Jack gets naked in public. I know what you're thinking, but sex is not the case. It's gorgeously written, the imagery is superb and the feel of it is just... guh. Jack getting naked isn't what it's always been, it means so much more. It plays a great part on Jack and Ianto's relationship here.
This fic is poignant, heartbreaking. You'll feel for Jack in this one.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: It is beautiful. That's all i'm saying because I don't want to give too much away. It helps, in a way and it fills in some plot holes.

"I don't want to be frozen like the others. I'd prefer to be cremated if possible."

Jack quickly sat up, pushing away from the other man, "Why's that?"

Ianto's eyes reflected the scant light in the room, "I don't want you living with ghosts. Ashes can't haunt you, Jack."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I actually like this one better. I just love what Jack does in it. This part broke my heart to bits.

"I carve his words into the caves because they were private. No one enters the caves except me, so they are still private and they'll be here forever. Even after the universe is nothing more than darkness and ice, his words will still be there- only the ice."

Length: Oneshot
Warnings: Spoilers for Series 3. If you are staying unspoiled, don't read it.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: I love how silent this story is, and it mostly in dialogue. A conversation between Jack and Ianto about her, if you don't know who she is already. Also talks about Jack not aging, which I found really lovely. If you're looking for a break from the smut and the angst and the fluff, here's a general Jack and Ianto for you, the kind I love. Not that all the others aren't good, it's just that I've already got past all that stuff. I know they have sex, they've had their angst, now I just like the general Jack/Ianto. This fic is set in Series 3 I think and we already know Jack/Ianto are together in it. There are no kisses to indicate they are and if you didn't already know they were in a relationship, you'd feel it. It's like it's just there. Okay then. Now i'm just not making sense.

"You always take this conversation so well," he says. It's ridiculously obvious that he's unhappy.

Ianto shrugs. "What am I supposed to do, exactly?"

"Be disturbed," Jack offers lightly, in a way that Ianto thinks is vastly cruel and unfair to all concerned.

"Sorry," he says, keeping his eyes on the road, "no interest in contributing to the family drama."

"No. Of course not. Always so calm, so even, our Ianto."

Ianto snorts. "We both know that's not true."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: I have an unhealthy obsession with Smoking!Ianto. Yes, Ianto does smoke here. I don't want to put anything that gives the fic away. You just have to read it. This fic is one of my favorites atm. It doesn't have any kisses, teasing, sex and all that. Just talking and smoking which also goes for Jack. The ending is lovely. Anyways, here's the excerpt:

Ianto set his elbows on the boards around the rink. A group of teenage girls in shiny, puffy coats shrieked by, clinging to each other and drawing less attention than they wanted.


“Ah.” Jack stubbed the cigarette out on the edge of the board. “Torchwood and I are a package deal.”

“I know.”

"I saw your husband go to the toilet," the air hostess confessed quietly.

"Rhys?" Gwen said with a frown. Wait, that was her real husband. The woman was talking about Ianto. "Oh! Okay." She didn't get it. "What's the big deal about my husband going to the loo?"

The young girl took a deep breath and explained awkwardly, "He went to the toilet with another man."

Gwen blinked at her, then slowly covered her face with the palm of her hand.

Title: Suddenly You're Older

Rating: R
Summary: Ianto sits alone in the dark, playing Judy at Carnegie Hall.
Status: Complete.
Length: Oneshot.
Warnings: Spoilers for 'Lost Souls', non graphic sex.
Comment or Excerpt from fic: I have absolutely not read anything good like it. It makes you wish this is what they had. Maybe it is what they have. Personally, even trying to come to a conclusion of what Jack and Ianto really are makes my head hurt. But this fic makes you understand it in a way that you want it to be canon. It makes you tingle, and the structure is just brilliant. Amazing story, it is.

He reaches a hand out and strokes Ianto’s cheek with the backs of his fingers, eyes softened by the muted quality of the record and the poignancy of sitting in the darkness with the pleasantly low-fidelity music washing over them. Ianto turns his face to look at Jack and there’s so much of Judy’s struggle, Judy’s faith in the poor young man’s eyes it takes his breath, makes him cup Ianto’s cheek all the more tenderly, the more closely.

A one man woman looking for the man that got away.

When he moves again it is because Ianto moves first, leaning gently into Jack’s body, arching up to meet Jack’s mouth with his own. This part they can do; this part is easy; this part is forever. His mouth is cool and sweet, his tongue is soft and languorous, his breath is deep and slow. For the first time in his long, long afterlife, Jack has found a place he isn’t thinking of leaving.
