kaffyr: The TARDIS says hello (Free for Use of the Public)

Story: Digita1 Gir1
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nancybrown
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 6,679
Author's Summary: Lisa is human. Mostly.
Characters/Pairings: Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Lisa Hallett, Suzie Costello, Ianto/Lisa, Ianto/Jack
Warnings: None
Recced because: When I realized that this has not, as far as  I can tell, been recommended, despite the author's well-deserved Calufrax ubiquity, I couldn’t help a little chortle of glee, because it falls to me to tell you how remarkable a story [livejournal.com profile] nancybrown has written in Digita1 Gir1. As does much of her fiction, this centers around Torchwood, and as much of the best Torchwood fiction does, it extracts the sublime from the ridiculous, and posits a world in which the plots of too much Torchwood, generally an unholy blend of insane and inane, are abandoned in favor of what Torchwood could actually be on rare but glorious occasions; sublime, terrifying, and heartbreaking (with a tiny flame of hope somewhere, almost guttering out, but not quite.) This is an AU which does that for one of the Torchwood episodes that most horrifyingly blends insane and inane: Cyberwoman. It finds Lisa Hallet alive, in love, battling the last ghosts of her cyber-programming, and dealing with an unexpected danger to Ianto and others she may possibly care for. [livejournal.com profile] nancybrown’s technical prowess shines through in the tiniest scenes — Lisa walking through a meadow, Lisa feeling the pull of electronic machinery and what it could mean for her, the descriptions of the antagonist’s laughter. The author’s emotionally mature vision of Lisa’s mind, and her description of Lisa’s distant, but still very human, view into the minds of others, have made this a story  I return to again and again.

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: Noodley Appendage
Author: Nancy Brown
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 2751
Author's Summary: When Captain Jack Harkness gets someone a special surprise for their birthday, it will almost certainly wind up involving sex with tentacled aliens. Because, Jack. (Part of the Rabbit Hole AU.)
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto/Lisa/OC
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recced because: Really, the only thing better than Jack/Ianto/Lisa is Jack/Ianto/Lisa/tentacled alien. And, as well done PWP tends to do, it manages not to be strictly porn, giving some insights into how the main triad have grown together. While it is part of her Rabbit Hole AU, it reads fine alone, I think, as the dynamics of the established triad are stated or implied pretty thoroughly at the beginning.

Hello! I'm known as Poetry over on the Teaspoon, and I'll be showing you the New Who and Torchwood fics that have dazzled, shocked, and delighted me these past few months. I'm particularly fond of Jack as a character, but I'll try to show you a variety of wonderful characters.


Story: Six Hundred Seconds
Author: Nancy Brown
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4564
Author's Summary: Five proper goodbyes Jack said, and one the Doctor didn't.
Characters/Pairings: Jack, Ten, Tosh, Owen, Ianto, Lisa, Alice, Steven, various others
Warnings: None

Recced because: I had a very hard time choosing a story from Nancy Brown's incredible Rabbit Hole AU series to rec. In the end, I chose the story that started it all. This is a story about a gift the Doctor gives Jack to try to make up for all that he's lost. The gift has an expiration date, though, and you can feel every second draining away. The sequels to this story also come heartily recommended.

     Today I'm invoking the "yesterday was a holiday" clause (You there in the back with the rule book, pipe down, it is so allowed!) and posting a second rec, so I can fit in the stories I had lined up.  Happy New Year again!

Story: "Dances In Four Worlds"
Author: Mercy_Brown
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2335
Author's Summary: Four dances that could be happening somewhere. (Ianto/Lisa, Ianto/Rose, Ianto/Ten, Ianto/Jack)
Characters/Pairings: Ianto/Lisa, Ianto/Rose, Ianto/Ten, Ianto/Jack, as the summary says.  :)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Four memorable dances that one Ianto Jones might be sharing, with four different partners.  By the time I was done reading these four vignettes, I was utterly charmed and wanted all of them to be true.  Happily, thanks to the magic of alternate universes, they are.  ;)
