Story:  The Manly Art
Author:  MeiLin
Rating:  Mostly all ages, but one is adult
Word Count: 606-3701
Author's Summary: The collected adventures of knitting!Jack, which aren't as ridiculous as they sound. ;) Dedicated to the Who Knits community on Ravelry.
Characters: Mostly Torchwood
Warnings: One story does have explicit sex.

MeiLin's series is a set of short stories about Jack, who knits.  These came about from a discussion on the Who Knits group on Ravelry about which character would be most likely to knit.  I really love the idea that Jack knits, and it fits with the time periods he's lived through.

Author's Summary: The Story of the Year that Wasn't, from the viewpoints of almost everyone involved.
Characters/Pairings: Clive Jones, Francine Jones, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Jack Harkness, Leo Jones, Lucy Saxon, Martha Jones, Owen Harper, The Doctor (10th), The Master (Simm), Tish Jones, Toshiko Sato
Warnings: It's the Year that Wasn't, and it's not fluffy. It is long - but rewarding.
Recced because: Firstly, because MeiLin has written what might be the definitive exploration of the Year That Wasn't here. Secondly, because she is a master at taking minor characters in a greater drama and seeing them as they could be, then writing them into reality. Even more important, she makes those minor characters integral to the Whoniverse she explores and the stories they inhabit. Once you meet Shae Han, you'll see what I mean.
And with that, my week of recs is over. I had a blast doing it, (although I apologize for posting rather more slowly than I should have occasionally,) and I hope you enjoyed at least some of the stories I presented. Thanks!
