This week I'm going to rec a fairly recent story, it was written in October last year.

Title: This is my letter to the World that never wrote to Me
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sariagray
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Suzie Costello, Jack Harkness, OCs
Spoilers and Warnings: NA. Spoilers for Everything Changes and They Keep Killing Suzie.
Summary: Like most women, Suzie Costello was once just a little girl. This is her story.

Link to story: http://sariagray.livejournal.com/105476.html

This fic follows Suzie from being a young girl to when she joined Torchwood. Her interaction with her family is really well done, it's real and natural, and you can see the distance growing between her and her father, as well as her mother and adopted father, as she gets older and her expectations of life become at odds with theirs.


I will be reccing stories featuring one or more of the female Torchwood characters for the four Friday free for all rec that fall within the Women of Torchwood fest month.

As this is the Friday rec free for all please rec any fic you want as long as it falls within the scope of the comm. It would be nice to see some more recs for fics featuring one or more of the Torchwood ladies, but it’s not essential.

My rec this week is from 2010, and is Tosh Suzie friendship fic


Title: The Dangling Conversation
Author: golden_d
Characters: Toshiko, Suzie, mentions of Jack
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1588
Summary: One night with wine in hand, they stayed up till dawn, discussing Dickinson and Bashō, Whitman and Keats, Tennyson and Rilke. And then they broke up an alien prostitution ring.

Simple, insightful into how both Tosh and Suzie deal with both the difficult memories of their pasts and how dangerous working tor Torchwood can be, it never tips over into angst.

Angels in the Architecture by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes
Rated: G
Characters: Tosh.
Author’s summary: Sometimes she thinks she can still hear them, even after the pendant is gone.

Story is here: http://ignipes.livejournal.com/167485.html

Another rec from the early days of the fandom, this was written back in the December of 2006 before the first series had even finished airing.

This is a Tosh gen fic set after Greeks Bearing Gifts. It’s hard to give it a genre exactly, introspection is probably the closest.

Despite the setting it’s not angst. There’s a sense of loneliness, of disconnection from the world that is as much from the lost of the telepathic pendant Mary gave her as it is from being part of Torchwood, but mostly it’s about life going on.

This replaces the themed Friday recs. Basically I'll rec a fic here, and then anybody who wants to can rec a few fics in the comments below. Being as we're running every Friday there will be plenty of opportunities to rec as many stories as you like.


My rec this week is Whiskey by [livejournal.com profile] notevery
Rating: NC17
Authors summary: Jack and Ianto take a little roadtrip in search of a reported alien object. The coffee isn't very good, but the whiskey is.

Link: http://notevery.livejournal.com/2369.html

This is a Jack/Ianto first time fic. Set before the start of the first series, Lisa is still alive and hidden in the lower levels of Torchwood, so if stories with Jack and Ianto sleeping together pre-cyberwoman isn't your thing it's probably best to give it a miss.

It's really not a romance story despite being a first time fic, there is definitely affection, but mostly it's the story of two lonely people with secrets they can't share, finding a little bit of comfort with each other.

With the series two re-watch starting tomorrow, 9pm UK time, we’re going to be running episode related recs for the duration of the re-watch.

This week’s rec theme is, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. So any fic that is connected to KKBB, it could be why the team chasing the blowfish in the first place. How Jack knows where they are and when to arrive. Jack and John's 2 week/five year relationship. Jack explaining where he's been. What they did while they were trying to avoid themselves at the end of the episode, or the date that Jack asks Ianto out on. So any fic that is connected to KKBB.

So rec your favourite ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' fics here.

Because as we're a pre/ignoring the existence of CoE/MD community I'd ask people not to rec CoE or MD related fics as recs. Other than that anything goes: het, gen, slash, any pairings, any characters, crossovers, AU, any length or genre at all.

The series one re-watch related recs are now finished, but continuing on with  theepisode related theme this week's rec is:

The Year That Never Was: Team

There are a lot of TYTNW stories out there, so this weeks rec is for ones which feature one or more of the team (Gwen, Owen, Ianto and Tosh.) rather than Jack as the main focus - although he can appear in it.

Because as we're a pre/ignoring the existence of Children of Earth community I'd ask people not to rec CoE or MD related fics as recs. Other than that anything goes: het, gen, slash, any pairings, any characters, crossovers, AU, any length or genre at all.


(I will post rec post for Christmas/winter festivals on Wednesday next week (21st) It's a couple of days earlier than usual, but I'm going to be mostly without computer access for about six days after that). The next rec post after that will be around the end of Dec, and will be for The Year that Never Was: Jack.  Followed by a between the series one and two, but not about TYTNW, rec. Once the holiday season is over I'll sort out the series 2 rewatchs and discussions.)
