Story: The Death of Me
Author: serenity_jane
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3219
Author's Summary: Fifty years after his own time, John Ellis took his own life. Not alone, though, because Jack knew there were many ways to go, and dying alone was worse than dying with company. Ianto, however, doesn't see it that way.
Characters/Pairings: Ianto Jones/Jack Harkness
Warnings: Swearing - Angst, Drama

Recced because: My second rec in this post is pure crack, so I'm hedging my bets with a neat little piece of Jack/Ianto angst. I always found the scene where Jack stays with John Ellis while he takes his own life to be strangely disturbing and reassuring at the same time. Serenity_jane's take on Ianto's impression of things is dark and bitter and very Ianto.

Author's Summary: As reunions go, this was a bit…well, ridiculous. Not that anyone was asking him, of course…
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: I haven't yet posted anything that could be classed as pure crack ... and this one certainly can! Of all the fandoms I've read fic from, DW is uniquely formed for brilliant crackfic. This is a fine example of a common theme (post Doomsday reunion) which from the very first sentence has an enjoyable air of the ridiculous about it. Bits of it could have been tighter, but I stumbled upon this today when I was visiting for the links to the last few fics I'm reccing ... and it was the check-out aisle impulse buy of my week in the calufrax spotlight. Enjoy.

Author's summary: When Jackie makes a flippant comment in the presence of an alien artifact, she wakes up to find her entire world flipped around – and not in the good way. There’s only one man – well, alien – she knows who could possibly fix it, and she’s just wished him out of their lives.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Jackie Tyler, Martha Jones, Mickey Smith, Pete Tyler, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: none

Recced because: I adore stories that delve into the intricacies of 'what if' and toying with time. This one is a true gem. It starts with the premise of Jackie wishing for one thing, one thing only: That Rose Tyler never met the Doctor. From that moment on, it hits the ground running. It's an engrossing, well-written story and it contains one of my absolute favourite characterisations of Jackie Tyler in fan fiction.
