Fic: Not Just a Handsome Coat

TITLE: NOT JUST A HANDSOME COAT
Characters: Jack, Ianto, off-stage Tosh
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Rating: Very mild PG
Disclaimer: Not mine; they belong to the BBC
Spoilers: None
Summary: Jack’s not just a pretty face.
A/N: This was prompted by a conversation I had with szm but is also a result of my being very tired of having Jack portrayed as being thick as two short planks in the series.


Ianto finished barricading the doors leading into the restaurant kitchens and went looking for Jack, trying to believe that he wasn’t as worried as he knew he was. The Rift spike they had gone to investigate had turned out to be a reactive kick to the arrival of some aliens by some kind of teleport. Jack had taken one look at the glowing creatures and sworn in his birth-tongue, a sure sign that they were up the proverbial creek without even a glimpse of a paddle. Then he had grabbed Ianto by the hand and dragged him after Jack as they had made a run for it, Jack yelling instructions to Andy and Tosh about evacuating the area immediately.

Rating: Open
Spoilers: Minor, for series
Disclaimer: Not mine; they belong to the BBC.

Fic: Fun and Games

Title: FUN AND GAMES
Characters: Jack, Ianto, Tosh, General Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Rating: Open
Spoilers: Minor, for series
Disclaimer: Not mine; they belong to the BBC.
Summary: Sometimes tactical manoeuvring can be a lot of fun…


There was a light tap on the door and Jack looked up to see Ianto hovering. “What’s up?” he asked curiously, seeing the smirk on the younger man’s face.

“UNIT’s trying to break though our defences,” Ianto explained, his smirk broadening into something perilously close to a grin.

Fic: Welcome to Earth: Diplomatic Incident

Title: WELCOME TO EARTH: DIPLOMATIC INCIDENT
Characters: Jack, Ianto, Yengi Gestalt
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Rating: Open
Spoilers: Minor, for series
Disclaimer: Not mine; they belong to the BBC.
A/N: Apologies, but this story will sail straight over the heads of non-UK readers. Suffice to say that the Yengi have been watching an advert for a painkiller. I think you can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5ey8poS4Ts.
Summary: Alien minds can sometimes jump to the damndest conclusions….

“Jack?”

Jack Harkness looked up sharply. He knew Ianto Jones well enough by now to know that particular tone of voice and it was one that never boded well. Sure enough, Ianto was standing at the door to his office with a bemused expression on his face. Knowing the degree of insanity that was needed to accomplish that, Jack bade farewell to the idea of a quiet afternoon pretending to do paperwork.

Fic: Welcome to Earth: First Contact

Title: WELCOME TO EARTH: FIRST CONTACT
Characters: Jack, Ianto
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Rating: Open (although there is one swear word)
Spoilers: Minor, for series
Disclaimer: Not mine; they belong to the BBC.
Summary: Sometimes it’s tough being the leader of Torchwood Three.


Jack looked up as Ianto walked into his office, but his attention fastened immediately on the mug Ianto was holding in his hands. All of the team had gone into withdrawal during the week Ianto had been on sick leave, recovering from a violent altercation with some blowfish, but now he was back and things were rapidly getting back to normal, barring the odd bit of dark muttering from Ianto when he discovered something else the others had forgotten to do. Jack had already had two mugs of Ianto’s finest but was more than willing to accept a third. He reached for the mug, then gave him a bewildered look as Ianto avoided the grab and shook his head.

Fic : The Memory of Tears

Title: THE MEMORY OF TEARS
Characters: Jack, Ianto, Lisa
Pairing: Jack/Ianto, Ianto/Lisa
Rating: PG for implied violence and death
Spoilers: Major for Cyberwomen
Disclaimer: Not mine; they belong to the BBC.
Summary: In the aftermath of Lisa’s death, Jack has to make decision about Ianto.


He had to really think back to recall a time when he had been so angry. Actually, ‘angry’ didn’t even come close to describing what he was feeling. Jack paced the length and breadth of the Hub, going down to levels he had had avoided for over 75 years, partly searching for confirmation that there were no more surprises hidden deep in the bowels of his home but partly because he needed to work off his anger and he knew that if he left the Hub he would find his way to Ianto’s home and he had only the haziest idea of what would happen then. He was, however, aware enough to know that he really shouldn’t do that.

PLYGAIN

A/N: Plygain is/was a custom in many parts of Wales. It’s a very early church service (“plygain” means ’daybreak’) between 3am and 6am on Christmas Day. The men would sing three- or four-part harmony carols without musical accompaniment in a candlelit service that could last anything up to three hours. After the service Christmas Day proper would begin, with all kinds of good things to eat, but one of the main meals was toasted bread and cheese - the original Welsh rarebit - washed down with locally produced ale. Most of the rural population were very poor but those who could afford it would have goose as the centrepiece of the feast.

The custom is hanging on by its fingertips, with signs of it being revived. I’ve been privileged to attend one such service and even though I started out three-quarters asleep I was moved to tears. Since I have Ianto being a refugee from an earlier time in this AU, I figured he would remember and miss plygain, hence this story.

Universe/Sequence/Series: Avatar & Changeling AU
Summary: At certain times of the year, Ianto remembers where he comes from and reaches out for what he has lost.


Ianto slid out of the bed as silently as he could and waited to make sure that he hadn’t disturbed Jack’s sleep before he grabbed at his clothes and left the room. MoreCollapse )
