Story: Five Ways Ianto Jones Didn't Travel In Time
Author: HanuuEshe
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 4310
Author's Summary: Does just what it says on the tin.
Characters/Pairings: Captain John Hart, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Lisa Hallett, Myfanwy, Other Character(s), Other Character(s), Other Character(s), The Doctor (Author-Created), The TARDIS, The TARDIS
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: Five Things stories are difficult to write with consistent quality, but this Torchwood story is a beauty, in which all five ficlets work really well. It's by an author who hasn't been recced here before, but has a good few stories on Teaspoon. I think we'll probably be seeing more on Calufrax.

Story: Intersecting Geodesics
Author: Nancy Brown
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 36704
Author's Summary: Stuck in the wrong time with a Jack who hasn't met him yet, all Ianto really wants is a way home.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto, Jack/John Hart
Warnings:. Various shades of dub-con, non-descriptive mentions of sex trafficking, character death.

Recced because: This story is an absolute must-read for anyone who loves Ianto Jones, but even those who’ve never watched Torchwood can enjoy this well-written story of a man who finds himself stranded outside his own time, searching for a way to get back home. Nancy Brown does a great job of staying within canon while telling Ianto’s story after Children Of Earth. The portrayal of the Time Agency and its Agents seems chillingly plausible, and Ianto’s resourcefulness and courage are convincingly rendered.

Story: Eliminating Redundancies
Author: Adrian Tullberg
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 552
Author's Summary: Cleanup duties
Characters/Pairings: Captain John Hart, Jack Harkness
Warnings: None
Recced because: As I mentioned on Monday, I'm a crossover fan. But if you're going to write crossovers using the Dr. Who rules of how time works, it becomes obvious that some other time travel stories run into serious problems. This glimpse of Jack's life as a Time Agent puts the boot into the Terminator franchise, big time. To say more would be too spoilery.

Story: Never Say Never Again
Author: [livejournal.com profile] robling_t
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 38,434
Author's Summary: Jack's in trouble. Yes, that kind of trouble. What's a pregnant guy to do when the employee handbook says "no guns at the baby shower"?
Characters/Pairings: Torchwood Team, Martha Jones, The Doctor (10)
Warnings: Crack!fic, Mpreg, Baby!fic, Kid!fic

Recced because: I decided to close out my week of recs with my favorite piece of fanfic candy. This is crack!fic on steroids, and I reread it to give me a smile.

It's the third story (second long one) and my favorite in a series, Yours, Mine, and Ours, all set in this same universe. It departs from our universe after season 3 of Doctor Who/season 1 of Torchwood, but canon events in Torchwood still have an effect on the story. There's also a good bit of timey-wimey goodness as well.

But, ultimately, the reason to read this story (and the rest of the series) is simple: it's fun!

I've enjoyed being your reccer for this week and I hope you've enjoyed my selections.
