Story: Assignment: Unremembered
Author: Orinoco II
work count: 25644
Complete: Yes
Author's description: By 1969, Torchwood is aware of the Silence. Even if they can't remember them. In the wake of the moon landing, Freelance Agent Jack Harkness is ordered to investigate. But a certain FBI Agent is also on the case.
Rating: Adult/explicit sex. Also it says slash but I wouldn't call this true slash.

Why I recced it: I love Canton and I love Jack, so Jack/Canton make a kind of Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of fic-love. But that's not all -- it's just very well written. As one reviewer commented: " Your characters practically leap off the page and the plot was very believable." WinWinWin!

Story: A Child's Story
Author: sonofabunk
Rating: teen
Word Count: 18256 (six chapters)
Complete: Yes
Pairings and/or Characters: Clara Oswin Oswald, 12th Doctor, 8th Doctor
Author's description: The discovery of alien technology. A writer of children's stories. Infighting within UNIT. The Congress of Vienna. And two different Doctors in two different eras trying to find someone to trust.

This is a bit of a dark tale, but excellent for all that. New writer, it looks like! Hopefully lots more to come.

I love fics that I can get lost in, that show instead of tell and that turn in unexpected ways. This one is complete, but not -- be warned that there's a cliff hanger ending and the author hasn't updated with a promised second story. Still, I think that this one is more than worth the read. Enjoy!

Story: Dim, Through the Misty Panes
Author: JJPOR
Rating: all ages
Word Count: 15,457
Author's Summary: Craiglockhart war hospital, 1917: Fresh from the horrors of the Western Front, Tim Latimer encounters fellow patients both famous and anonymous, while struggling with his special abilities and trying to avoid the attention of the Torchwood Institute.
Warnings: Explicit Violence, Swearing

recced because: Tim Latimer is one of my favorite supporting characters, and I love the way the author has filled us in on what he went through. Plus, there's not much better than historic Torchwood. This is a great fic -- one of those fics that you can see as you read. Enjoy!
