Summary: Jack finds a life he wasn't expecting to want, and Ianto finds a love he never thought he'd have. 
Status: Complete

Pairings Jack/Ianto

Comment: This is incredibly beautiful, and so well written. legibleflowers always writes beautifully and this is no exception. It's set in Pete's world, the AU from Dr Who, and features those characters, including a wonderfully drawn Rose, and AU Doctor. There is some mpreg in here, but even if you normally don't like it, give it a chance, as this story is set in an AU where sexuality and pregnancy are very different to ours, so it works perfectly in that context.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: Probably my second all-time favourite Jack/Ianto fic, teetering right on the edge of being my favourite. It's marvelously dark and chilling, while still being beautiful. The style is brilliant and it's a very enchanting read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone so long as they're not adverse to violence and dark fics.

He can't breathe for the smell of flowers...Collapse )

Comment or Excerpt from fic:  This is Post CoE, and my personal canon of what happened because hellooo, Ianto is alive and there's accidental time travel! Heartbreaking in the best possible way, and there's also a happy ending after all the angst. *teary eyes*

Status: Complete
Length: 
151,875 words, Seventeen Chapter
Warnings: Author's warning and notes (very long, but the author thought they were necessary, so I'll put them here): Read more...Collapse )

Comment or Excerpt from fic: A wonderful, wonderful fic that began as a ten page one-shot, and grew out of control, according to the author. It charts Jack and Ianto's relationship, and their reactions to events on the show, as well as adding a few interesting side adventures for them to have. It contains a few cliches, as the author warns, but they are built into the story, and form valid plot points rather than just being cliches. It is very well researched, contains the occasional reference, and has solid characterization throughout. AND it gets Myfanwy's gender right ... you'll see what I mean. There is so much I love about this fic.

Comment or Excerpt from fic: This is a brilliant fic that is recc'd at longliveianto  where I first found it, and I thought it should go here, as it gives us so much hope after the disaster that was the-series-that-shall-not-be-named. This is another fic that could be classed as canon if people wanted it to, in the words of the Doctor "Time can be rewritten."

Excerpt:
The man who shouldn’t be looked up through eyes that were nearly swollen shut at the man who wasn’t a man, smiled a smile that could only be described as ‘terrifying’ and shouted, “Doctor!  What brings you here?  No, wait let me guess.  Um - Daleks?  No, no we got all of those.  Cybermen?  No, the last of those died when we killed Y-Ianto’s girlfriend.” The Doctor could hear the slight stutter even through the slurring and wondered what had happened before Jack went on. “No, no, no!  I’ve got it!  The 456, are they back?  Do you want to know how I did it?  Or did someone tell you what I did and you’ve come to put me down?” The Doctor flinched.

At this last, the Doctor saw Jack’s eyes light up with a kind of horrifying hope.  The Doctor realized that Jack was in worse shape than he thought if he believed for an instant that the Time Lord would actually kill him.

This is one awesome story, read this if you love stories where Ianto lives :D

AU, Romance, WW2, Action, Drama
Rating:
PG - NC17
Summary:
Disgraced American pilot Captain Jack Harkness starts again in a new country and a new service but will a young sonar operator make things easier or harder for Jack?
Status:
Complete
Length:
15 Chapters + Prologue and Epilogue (38,315 Words)
Warnings:
Brief mention of Jack/OFC (and suggested Jack/OFC/OMC) and Ianto/Lisa
Comment or Excerpt from fic: Very good AU that has nothing to do with Torchwood with a mortal Jack and Ianto in the second world war in a Royal Navy Submarine, you can imagine what happens lol. It's well written and has good pace, there's no rushing into things :). This is one of my favourite WW2 Jack/Ianto stories :D

Excerpt:

He shrugged on the coat that had been hanging over his arm - no-one would see it was an Air Force coat in the dark - and tugged the warm comforting material around him.  Sadly this would have to go into storage at his lodging house with most of the rest of his things; he’d miss the coat, it was almost like it was a part of him.  Taking one last glance at his new charge he turned and left the docks behind him.  He rounded the corner of one of the cargo units, head bowed against the wind; and impacted with something warm and solid.

 

Glancing up, he was just in time to see a figure step round him with a clear “Sorry, Sir” before the figure was swallowed up by the darkness out towards the harbour.  He’d barely seen the man, nothing really but shadow; yet still he was left with the lingering impression of blue grey eyes and a muttered ‘Like the coat’.

 

There's also a PDF version of this story if you would prefer it: Here.

Title: DRIVING CAPTAIN HARKNESS
Author: tanarian
Genre: AU
Rating: R/NC-17 overall
Summary: Jack Harkness knew Torchwood House held secrets but he didn’t realise that there was also a treasure there, as well.
Status: WIP
Length: 2 Chapters so far
Comment or Excerpt from fic: By the lovely tanarian , that should be all you need to know that the fic is going to be goood! :D

“Captain Harkness?”

Jack stared at the man who had seemingly materialised in front of him. Young and darkly handsome and dressed in what Jack quickly realised was a grey chauffeur’s uniform, complete with perfectly arranged hat and gloves; he presented an image that did serious things to Jack’s libido. “That’s me,” he confirmed with an easy grin. “I take it you’re here to take me for a ride?”

An eyebrow was raised and there was just the smallest quirk to the other’s lips. Very kissable lips, Jack was quick to note. “If by that you mean take you back to the House, sir, then I would agree. The car is this way.”

Title: A Taste of Midnight
Author: toestastegood
Genre: Action, Romance, Vampire!Ianto
Rating: R
Summary: An alien attack, a new stalker for Jack and an assault on a vital employee leaves the Torchwood team with a fresh set of problems – especially when Ianto begins to develop a taste for human blood.
Status: Complete
Length: 6 Chapters
Comment or Excerpt from fic:

Jack didn't bother to contradict her, instead becoming distracted when his headset demanded his attention. A simple press of a button and he'd answered the call. "Yeah?"

He wasn't sure what he'd been expecting: Ianto calling to say he was bored, Owen calling to demand food, or Tosh to say she'd finished her reports. Something bland. Something neutral.

Instead, Tosh's stressed voice flooded into his ear. "Jack? It's Ianto – something's happened to him, I don't know what. I think he's hurt."

That was all he had to hear before he was drawing his gun and heading for the door: rushing to the rescue.

Title: Alive
Author: nixa_jane
Genre: Angst, Romance
Rating: PG
Summary: Jack came back soaked to the skin.
Status: Complete
Length: Oneshot
Comment or Excerpt from fic:

Jack's got a heartbeat just like anyone else. Ianto can hear it when he gets this close, just below the surface, steady as anything. It's kind of like the click click click of a stopwatch. Ianto finds it comforting.

"Wake up," Ianto says.

Jack doesn't wake up, which is odd, because Jack doesn't sleep. Ianto's never seen him sleep, not in all the time he's worked for him. Jack says he doesn't need it and Ianto believes him. He always believes him.
