Title: Heaven in Hell's Demesne
Author: [livejournal.com profile] crystalfic
Genre: Angst, hurt/comfort
Rating: PG-13
Status: Complete
Length: ~800 words
Warnings: Torture, violence
Summary: Sometimes, all it takes to call you back from a nightmare is a familiar voice.
Commentary: Anyone who takes a good look at my recs can tell that I am a sucker for fics dealing with the YTNW. This is a short fic, and it deals with many the familiar tropes of the subgenre, but with such wonderful characterizations that I couldn't help but bookmark it. Jack's humor, Ianto's understated care, it all shines through with perfect clarity.

Comment: You've all heard "the end is where we start from". What you may not have heard is another line from Little Gidding T.S. Eliot penned: "Every poem an epitaph". That is the line that came to me while reading this fic. For something so short, it packs a lot of punch. There's an awful lot of sorrow and grief; there's also acceptance, and grace. There's beauty. I could go on and on about how powerfully touching this fic is until my commentary was longer than it was, but essentially, the reason I found this so memorable is because it's a memorial. Not only to Ianto, but to everything we saw between him and Jack.

Title: 25 Things Ianto Has Done and Is Capable of Doing Again
Author: [livejournal.com profile] strangecreatureand [livejournal.com profile] shinodabear
Genre: Character Study
Rating: PG-13
Summary: The authors like to joke about their wildly differing views on Mr Ianto Jones. But if they were to both write up lists of '25 Things Ianto Has Done and is Capable of Doing Again', they probably wouldn't be very different at all.
Status: Complete
Length: Two Parts, A and B
Warnings: All standard Torchwood ones
Comment: Ianto has- and likely always will be- the unique status of being a man with a mysterious past. Just as often as we have speculated about Jack's background, we have speculated about Ianto's- if not more so. These two pieces are a good way to illustrate why that is- because although we might argee on a few broader points, very little else is nailed down.

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.

“Torchwood.”

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

“I know.”

Oh boy...

Comment or Excerpt from fic: *sniffles* Another totally heartbreaking fic! *cries*

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

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. He kept seeing things just out the corner of his eye that was gone when he looked around and the little hairs on the back of his neck could be lying to him, couldn't they when they stood on end?

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.

EXCERPT:

“IANTO!!!”

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.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Another totally fluffy fic in which Ianto’s recalling an incident when Jack’s called him beautiful. Though the incident in question takes place in a shower setting, it’s non-smutty and just made squeal from its über cuteness.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

No ones ever called me beautiful before. Good looking, handsome, yes, even gorgeous a time or two (honestly, I’m not just saying it) but never beautiful. So when the word left Jack’s lips, I had no idea how to respond and I’m completely appalled to admit, even here, I blushed. I shouldn’t have been surprised, though. Jack does have the tendency to bring out the worst in me…

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Ianto pointedly ignored Jack’s hand as he swiped unsuccessfully at the mud on his jacket. He threw a glare Jack’s way and Jack had to bite the inside of his cheek to keep from laughing. “What? You would have gotten clobbered if I hadn’t stepped in.”

“I’m running out of excuses for my drycleaner. He all ready thinks I’m a little off.”

“You are a little off and besides, at least it’s not blood.” Ianto ignored the comment and Jack swallowed a snort. “Admit it, this was a lot more fun then that stuffy restaurant.”

He huffed at Jack and gave him his back.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack watched him for a long moment, perched on the edge of the bed, apparently in a deep sleep... and he suddenly felt as tired as Ianto looked. He stripped down to his boxers, climbing over Ianto to get onto the free side of the bed... moving stealthily so as not to wake Ianto. He snuggled down underneath the covers before rolling Ianto back into his embrace, sighing contentedly as he slipped arms round Ianto’s waist... pressing a palm flat against Ianto’s belly.

“Finally.” The word came as a breathy whisper from Ianto’s lips as Jack felt the body beneath him move further back into Jack’s own body.

Jack knew he’d been had. Ianto had looked too gorgeous and innocent to be truly asleep.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Oh this is such a beautiful piece! *____* This is how I've always seen out Janto relationship develop - purely physical in the beginning, but the experiences make it so much more. Though bittersweet, this piece is just beautiful and romantic and just perfect!

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Once... he’d told himself it was just lust, that it couldn't be anything else, that he couldn't allow it be anything else. Yet the more Jack had tried to convince himself that they were doing was purely physical the less it worked. Ianto had shown him... that not to love meant not to live... He'd taught him love again... simply by being there. Jack knows that one day he'll lose him, and... that day... it will hurt him in a way that nothing has managed for a very long time, yet even knowing that he cannot stop.

He has no control over loving Ianto... They are together, against the odds, against everything... and perhaps they are all the stronger for it.

Ianto gives him timeless moments when he can pretend that they both have forever... to make memories to carry into eternity with him, ones that he can remember by moonlight when he's all alone.

Warnings: spoilers for Torchwood S1 & 2 through 2x03 "To The Last Man"
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Totally Ianto's POV, it shows his feelings about Jack leaving and his inability to let him go and finally his acceptance. It's an emotional fic that shows Ianto's growth as a person and this growth is shown via Ianto's acceptance of Jack only after he proves himself.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Over the few months Jack had been gone, Ianto had learnt a lot about himself, as both a Torchwood employee and a person outside of work... Being left without Jack showed him how strong willed he was. He couldn’t deny how much the knowledge of being left behind had hurt. But after several hours of crying seemingly endless tears, the tiny droplets of salt turned into dust and he knew he was through crying over Jack Harkness.

He wasn’t the first man to be left by a lover, and he knew he wouldn’t be the last. In the days that had followed Ianto had been reminded of a phrase his mother had told... "No man is worth crying over."

The words had stung at the time – being male, they had actually wounded his pride – but years later they seemed to make sense. While they hadn’t been directed at him, the same maxim applied. There was no use crying over someone who wasn’t there to see the tears and realise the pain they had inflicted.

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

"Why were you looking at photos of me as a kid?"

... "I..." Jack sighed and took a breath before trying again. "Because I want to memorize every bit of your life, I want to remember your tooth gap when you were five and grinned like mad into the camera, proudly holding the tooth up. I want to remember your evil grin, when you put a frog on your sister's tummy, I want to remember the happy smile when you got that skateboard you wished for. I want to remember your satisfied smile when you graduated."

"But you weren't there when all that happened."

"But I wish I had been. Because as much time as we might have together, it will never be enough. I want as many memories of you as I can get."

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Just Jack thinking and enjoying a sleepy Ianto while laying on bed... ^^

~*~*~*~*~

EXCERPT:

Jack smiled as Ianto reached out to wrap himself closer into his body... still a long way from being awake. He placed a kiss on top of Ianto’s head and tightened the embrace ever so slightly, and... tighter again when the doubts crept back in, as they always did whenever he let himself feel content and, dare he think it, happy... Jack placed another kiss on Ianto’s forehead and breathed him in for a moment longer.

He knew moments like this couldn’t last forever. If they could last forever then they would never be moments and they would never be special. He knew that one day he would try to remember the smell that was Ianto, but he would no longer be able to recall it... For now though it was just one day... It was to be spent wrapped in each other’s arms, in Ianto’s bed, with only the gentle breeze blowing the curtains in the window to connect them to anything other than each other, and Jack was in love with that moment.
