Hello! No, you're not wrong. I am Pitry and this is not December. But I'm going to help you pretend it is winter now (or summer, depends on where you are in the world) by reccing this week!
And we shall the week start with something funny.

Story: A Few Quiet Drinks
Author: jadesfire
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5,057
Author's Summary: This is a Torchwood/Discworld crossover.
Characters/Pairings: Ianto Jones, Toshiko Sato, Suzie Costello, Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Captain Jack Harkness, various citizens, denizens and other zens of Ankh Morpork.
Warnings: None.

Recced because: For a change, the summary doesn't say it all. Well, there's only a limit to how serious things can get when your crossover is Torchwood and Discworld, but still, what the summary doesn't tell is the mutual life of exasperation and eternal confusion the agents of Torchwood share with the various people of Ankh Morpork. But it's not just the comedy. You'd think it's impossible to write this crossover and yet keep both sets of characters in character, but whether it's Death picking up Suzie, Ianto and Igor sharing a grumble together, or Jack talking to Grannie Weatherwax, it's in character, it's funny, and it makes you wish Sir PTerry would write a Torchwood episode.

Author's Summary: There's a new monster in Sunnydale. Fortunately help is at hand, but will it be enough? [Buffy/Torchwood crossover]
Characters/Pairings: Jack, Buffy, Giles, Willow, Tara, Anya, Xander, Spike
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is my personal favorite Buffy/Torchwood crossover fic. The Scoobies' reactions to Jack are just priceless, all the voices are spot-on, and there's one scene in the last chapter that made me tear up a little, and still emotionally affects me every time I read it. Plus, there's a cameo from a Classic Who villain.

Series: Sic Transit Tempus
Author: Jadesfire
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Jack has to sit through the Twentieth century, waiting for the Doctor. These stories follow him from 1953-present day Torchwood, with all the usual trouble that Jack can get himself into.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Other Characters
Warnings: none

Recced because: If you only read one series of stories that covers some of those years between Jack's arrival on Earth after PotW and the start of Torchwood, read this one. Jadesfire has a brilliant ability to bring Jack and the various characters that cross his path through his long path to Series 1 of Torchwood to life. Every character is so real that you care about every single one of them, even if they aren't the 'name' that Jack Harkness is. But most especially you get to learn more about who Jack is now that he can't define himself by his life with the Doctor and it's simply marvelous to read.
