Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well now, this is a bit different from the usually written fics based on TW episode 1x10 (Out of Time). Rather than being a coda, it takes place somewhere in the middle of the episode, most likely before John goes to see his aged son and loses all hope of fitting into this strange future. It is fully from John’s POV and his helplessness is already evident.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

He wandered around the Hub, exploring. A severed hand: how disgusting. Many things he could not identify. Metal, stone, mysterious goo in glass dishes. A morgue, kept locked. Computers everywhere, but he couldn't see many books. How could they trust the computers? How could they give the machines such power over them? They didn't seem to notice, or care. There was too much glass - was it safe? How did they keep the place warm and lit? It must be a colossal use of power, of expenditure, of waste.

He was worrying too much, but he couldn't let go… He wandered on. He wanted to escape, but how can you escape a time? You can only escape a place. Everywhere he went, he was still caught in this inexplicable future.

He'd never thought it would be like this.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: WHOA! What a way to start a fic... BANG! The remaining TW team's on a mission when UNIT comes with guns blazing (and sticks up their rears) to ruin everything! But it is oh so amusing to see Jack rip a new into the UNIT commander, though! *glee* It sounds like James Bond, Torchwood style, so if all the violence, swearing, and sex that's being promised isn't incentive enough, then Jack and Ianto in tuxes should be! *drools*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

The large doors blasted open, lights shone like a thousand suns and a terrible noise like a screaming banshee bore down on them. Gwen swore and threw herself backwards through the door as men in black uniforms rushed the area... A helicopter landed, cars drove up, and someone spoke in a bull horn. Somewhere, in her ear, Jack swore loud and colorfully... The aliens reached into the boxes and hauled out very big, very powerful guns. Gwen, realizing what was about to happen, threw herself onto the ground and curled into a small a ball as possible. The aliens fired. The weapons didn’t help. Sub machine guns rat-tat-tatted and gunned the aliens down instantly. Some of the bullets ripped through the door and hit the wall around Gwen. She shrieked, and in her ear both Ianto and Jack roared.

Everything went very quiet, save for the rotor blades of the helicopter...

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto was humming softly as he went about fixing... a coffee... sliding into his seat, he mindlessly picked up a small package that had been sitting there... Giving the thick envelope a gentle squeeze, he could feel... something... there. A box?... he tore at the opening... and let the contents slide into his waiting hand.

Ianto frowned as he looked down at the pack of cards before him. Tarot? Turning them over, he closely examined the pictures on the front... The images appeared to shift slightly, rearranging itself, settling into place... Each card was unique, unlike any Tarot deck he’d ever seen before. Pausing, he glanced over at the envelope. The... printing simply stated To Help You—no name... He didn’t remember actually picking this up... Shifting his gaze back to the cards, Ianto thought he saw something move again. There! The image... seemed to shimmer... Sucking in a short breath, Ianto realized it was the restaurant Jack and Gwen had gone to investigate.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is mostly an angsty fic with a heavy dose of hurt/comfot, especially in the second part. We usually see Ianto taking care of Jack and Gwen post “Exit Wounds,” but this is just the opposite – Ianto on the brink and Gwen forcing Jack to acknowledge the fact that they need to hire more people before Ianto looses it.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

“Jack, I need to talk to you.”

Jack looked up from his paperwork as Gwen strode determinedly into his office... Ute-oh. She looks to be gearing up for a long one...

“We need help. We need to start thinking about…replacements,” she said, hesitant but no more determined.

Jack froze at those words. Replacements? Owen and Tosh? They could never be replaced. Even though he's thought of it, it felt slightly like betrayal. “We’re handling things well, Gwen. For the time being, we’re set. We don’t need anyone,” he said but a whisper in the back of his head called him on his denial.

“Jack! Open your eyes!” she... dragged him to the window... pointing below. “Look. Down there.”

Jack closed his eyes at the sight briefly, then forced himself to do as Gwen suggested.

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.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack was bored.

In fact, he was more than bored, he was practically catatonic. He was also painfully aware that today was the day for stock taking – a day... on due to copious amounts of calls from Whitehall about expenses – and he hated it.

Ianto had already shoved a huge pile of paperwork... and he was almost three quarters of the way through.

It had taken him a good three hours to get that far.

If Ianto had been with him, he would’ve pointed out that Jack hadn’t actually spent two of those hours in his office, but the captain would’ve countered that it was still looming over him, so it still counted… Sadly, Ianto wasn’t up in the main area… so… the particularly amusing conversation that had panned out... hadn’t happened.

He sighed heavily and twisted his pen through his fingers, leaning his chin on his free hand.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Well, we move away from the angst-fest of the last few days to something more fluffy!... Well, fluffier than the previous ones. Fic based on the “Sleeper” episode from TW S2. Taking place from the moment Jack, Beth, and Gwen comeback after stopping the last sleeper agent at the military base and goes from there to post-“Sleeper.” Slightly angst, but it’s fluffy and romantic with a dash of Gwen-bashing and a whole lotta smut! *grins*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto pulled the SUV door open, catching Jack’s limp body... and… debated what to do. Jack needed to be comfortable but there was no way to carry him down to his bunker. Unbuckling Jack’s seatbelt, he lifted... to get Jack stretched out across the back seat. The greatcoat had a tear... but nothing he couldn’t fix. He took off the greatcoat, tossing it over the front seat and cursed. Jack’s light blue shirt was blood soaked.

He shook his head. “You covered it with your coat, you twpsyn, why didn’t you let me know?” he muttered. He deftly undid the buttons of Jack’s shirt, revealing the blood soaked undershirt and a gaping wound... He lifted Jack’s head and slid into the seat, cradling him in his lap... “I wish you would’ve told me, we could’ve talked on the comms. You know I hate when you die on your own... But I’m here now...”

A few minutes passed and the silence was deafening.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto glanced around... instinctively looking for Jack. The Captain had opted to wait outside the shop, already bored by shopping, as Ianto had known he would be. Quite why Jack had wanted to come in the first place had confused Ianto, but he wasn’t one to argue when Jack wanted to spend time with him.

He spotted Jack a couple of shops away, hands in his pockets, head tilted to one side, as if he was contemplating something in one of the windows. Smiling to himself, he shifted the weight of the shopping bags in his hands and went to stand beside Jack.

There was a sarcastic quip on his lips as he approached, but it was forgotten as he saw what Jack was staring at. A three-piece suit hung on one of the mannequins, black, with a crimson lining that matched the tie knotted around the neck. It was a well-tailored suit and Ianto was certain that it would have a price tag to reflect that.

Jack drank his shot and winced as it burned his throat. It was the sixth he’d consumed and it still burned. It doesn’t get better, he thought morosely, it never fucking gets better. But this was his nights off now. Trolling around in pubs instead of spending his time at home…the home he could no longer bear to step into.

He held up his glass to signal the bartender, then noticed someone looking at him from across the bar. A woman, blonde, smiling at him. She was obviously drunk, but fuck it all, she was cute and Jack needed…he knew what he needed, but he wasn’t going to get that so this woman would have to do.

He approached her, “Hi, I’m…Chris.” Not Jack. She wouldn’t say it right. “You...live around here?” a crap chat-up line he knows, but she doesn’t seem to care. Jack knows how that feels.

EXCERPT:

Something had been off all day, Jack was telling himself it was all in the mind as no one else in the hub seemed to be experiencing the same thing.

Once the others had left for the night and Jack was alone the feeling he was being watched grew, he had scoured the whole hub via the CCTV and in person and found nothing. Bloody Halloween he muttered to himself as he turned off the lights and slid down the ladder into his small room beneath his office, not expecting to come face to face with a ghost.

He remembered their vacation to England, long ago... Now two years later... Dee balked when the UK came up again... and... As Dee lay in the bed... he cursed that he still could not shake the feeling of something about to go horribly wrong.

EXCERPT:

The candles flickered, casting twitching shadows across the... walls and... stained glass windows. The pews were... facing a... altar on a dais. The sun was... casting a bloody glow through the ornate glass behind it, the colours blending... and painting the sole occupant of the room. All was silent, except for the soft clicking of beads knocking together as a rosary was clasped between desperate, lonely hands. The door opened and creaked, making the man sitting... tense and snatch the beads up.

“Have you come for confession, son?” An old, kindly voice asked...

“No... just came to get my head together.” The man answered... avoiding the father’s eyes... he strode... to the door at the back. He paused for a moment and glanced at the... shelving filled with tea-lights. After a moment’s thought, he picked up a fresh one and lit it, placing it carefully on the... row before slipping out of the room.

“Jack?” Ianto called, none of the alarm he felt showing in his voice. The gun held firmly in both hands, however suggested otherwise.

“What’s up?” Jack called back...

“Can you come here please. Sir.” Ianto replied just as calmly

That got Jack’s attention. While he sighed in frustration at Ianto’s continued use of the damn ‘sir’ thing he’d never heard it inflected in quiet that way before. Frowning he left his paper work, secretly hoping it didn’t breed... and... multiply on im. He was already half convinced Ianto must have a bloody breeding program hidden in the archives somewhere... and clattered down the steps to the main part of the Hub.

He froze at the sight that greeted him... He freaking hated Monday’s...

He loved the excitement... the thrill... the running... But... that wasn’t enough anymore, and he realised something quite suddenly.

“When did we become something more than a quick fumble in row M of the archives?” Jack mused aloud. He waited... watching the steady rise and fall of Ianto’s chest… “Oh, Ianto Jones.” Jack sighed wistfully… “Some days I don’t know what I’d do without you.” Jack smiled fondly… gaze… solely on Ianto… “That’s what I love about you... You’re always there no matter what... You make everything more bearable... by just being you... You make forever more bearable… I’m a changed man because of you Ianto Jones... Changed for the better.”

The scream echoed round the small chamber that passed for Jack’s bedroom. Looking up from where he was currently dressing – in the process of fastening his tie - Ianto quirked an eyebrow and sauntered over to the door that led to the small bathroom.

Leaning against the doorframe, he asked dryly, “You yelled?”

“Look!” exclaimed Jack turning round to at him, “Look!” he pointed...

When Ianto just looked blankly... for a moment then burst out laughing.

EXCERPT:

Ianto jumped slightly when he heard the door to his flat open unexpectedly... Relief washed over him as he recognised the familiar sound of heavy boots being kicked off by the door. He let out a small chuckle... He held his book still as he listened to Jack’s footsteps pad through to the living room, pause, and return to the hall.

“Ianto?” he heard the familiar voice call... The bathroom door pushed open to reveal Jack smiling the patented Harkness grin... “... And look how I’ve found you! What you up to all wet and naked in there, Mr Jones?”

Ianto rolled his eyes and set his book on the floor beside of the bath until he got some peace and quiet... “Clearly, I’m taking a bath, Jack...” Ianto sighed, and not the good kind of sigh that he usually found escaping his lips when content in a warm bath, “... I’m trying to relax.”

Jack’s face broke into a grin.

Jack Harkness had never been categorized as a coward before. He’d sometimes been selfish, almost certainly been vengeful - for those who deserved it. You could also say he’s been downright cruel at times but he’d never been as cowardly as he was right now.

Hey, kids. Did you miss me?

Silence... His team said nothing, just looked at him, various expressions of shock on their faces. Except for one.

No, Ianto had always been very careful at keeping his emotions in check. Something came into his eyes... but before Jack could decipher it, it was gone. Jack kept his grin firmly in place, not letting the fact that his heart was doing flip-flops at the bottom of his stomach... He could deal with their anger over leaving them without a word... deal with their rejection even…all but one.

"Don't say things like that."

"... It's true. I could have died... today... And it made me realize that there are some things I need to say..."

"No," said Jack, "We are not having this conversation, not now." A finger on his lips silenced him.

"It's been empirically proven that ignoring an issue is not a successful method of ensuring its failure to occur. Conversely, discussing the matter is not going to make it happen any sooner... Jack, one day I'm going to die, and for a few minutes back there, I thought it was going to be this day.

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 gorgeous fic dealing with a beautifully broken!Jack. His feelings for Ianto, his denial, and finally his acceptance just when things are about to go out of control is so realistic and so wonderfully written! *__* I’m just so glad it’s a happy ending!

EXCERPT:

There was fire. And screaming. And blood… oh god, so much blood. And he didn’t know what to do... he was supposed to do something but... he just didn’t know what… ‘Doctor!’ he screamed... Why wasn’t the Doctor here... helping? ... But he didn’t care. He didn’t want the Doctor near him. He wanted… something. It was lurking on the very edge of his mind, hazy... like a mirage. Taunting him to just reach out and… latch onto it.

Strong warm arms around him, a strange accent murmuring sweet nothings in his ear.

This is what he wanted. Or rather, who… His mind couldn’t even grasp who it was, and yet it was all he could think about. It was all that was keeping his brain from taking in the extreme direness of the situation, the horror of what was happening around him. All that was keeping him grounded, keeping him sane.

All that was saving him.
