Author's Summary: Why would tourist board employees need to order pizza at 1 in the morning? Employees of Jubilee Pizza have a couple of theories.
Characters/Pairings: Ianto, original characters
Warnings: none

Recced because: Here's a look back at Torchwood from a few years ago, up until Cyberwoman. It has the outsider perspective of the pizza delivery people who got stuck delivering to that location. I like their speculation about what's really going on at the "tourist board" and the foreshadowing for Cyberwoman.

Author's Summary: The years pass with Owen watching. Spoilers through "A Day in the Death."
Characters/Pairings: Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones, Gwen Cooper, Martha Jones
Warnings: Character death

Recced because: Thoroughly AU now, this story starts from where we were left after Torchwood's "A Day in the Death" and takes us to its logical conclusion: aside from immortal Jack, the person who seems slated to be the last surviving member of the team is Owen. The story takes place over many years, with Owen going on as the others age and eventually die, until he and Jack are the last ones left. And that's when a twist shifts the story from good to utterly brilliant, and it's all just simultaneously heartbreaking and beautiful. What I find most amazing about this fic, though, is that Owen is faithfully portrayed as the complete and utter prat he was back then in the show, and yet he also is an ultimately sympathetic character. So sympathetic, in fact, that you might just find yourself crying for him at the end. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Author's summary: After the longest night in the Hub, Owen has to do final documentation for Lisa Hallett's corpse.
Characters/Pairings: Owen Harper
Warnings: Swearing
Word Count: 1190

Recced because: For me, Owen Harper is one of the most interesting and layered characters in Torchwood, but in fanfic he's often short-changed as the bastard in the background. [livejournal.com profile] joonscribble writes Owen wonderfully, with his complexities, and this story offers a rare glimpse into the softer side of Owen without making him out of character.
