Jack's genetic profile helped him to decide on a place and time - Europe, 20th century - and with not one but two "World Wars" in that bracket he could hardly fail to find profitable ideas. But even a charming amoral conman can find himself taken unawares by a romantic impulse, and when presented with a challenge suddenly rise to the occasion.

It wasn’t a good day for Jack. It seemed like every corner he turned there was another dead Torchwood agent waiting there for him: irritated, disoriented by their surroundings, touching things they shouldn’t be touching, wanting a pound of his flesh. Tosh, with Louis P. (died 1983, friendly fire) peering over her shoulder curiously and asking all sorts of obnoxious questions, had checked the monitors and found that there were no rift anomalies that even slightly resembled what they’d seen at the hospital with Tommy. If anything, actually, things were more quiet than usual.

They’d just have to stick it out.

azn_jack_fiend: My Reservations about Colorblind Writing and Casting
...the original casting call [was] for a white actor to play Rex and a woman of color to play Esther, so it wasn't race-neutral at all to begin with. The actual casting has that switched so that Esther is white (Alexa Havins) and Rex is black (Mekhi Phifer). ...Jane Espenson said that they had written the characters to be "colorblind" in the first place, so they didn't make any changes. And that they wouldn't want to make Rex's character "sound stereotypical."

...the implied attitude "we're going to ignore race of the characters entirely and why would we want to do it any other way" is especially grating when contrasted with the heavy emphasis on respecting Welsh versus US cultural differences.

...I actually raised this point already with Jane Espenson on Twitter, publicly, and she responded pretty gracefully...

Later, it happens while they’re brushing their teeth in Jack’s mirror, shouldering each other back and forth to get to the sink. Jack spits and says, “You know? I think you’re gonna look hot when you start going grey. Dignified.”

Ianto dips his head to get a mouthful of water from the tap and then stands again, swishing it around morosely. He spits, and when he lifts his head, he gives Jack in the mirror his best bland look, but he can’t help the tension in his jaw, bordering on grinding his teeth. “I’m surprised I’m not grey already,” he says...

sam_storyteller: The Theory of Two Centres 1/8
As far as he knew Jack didn't have a secret flat somewhere but, even if he did, there would probably be less pink and more model airplanes or something.

There was a photo on the nightstand -- Gwen, leaning over Rhys, arms wrapped around his shoulders.

Oh, well then. Mostly-naked in Gwen's bed. He wasn't sure if that was better or worse than mostly-naked in a stranger's bed. Surely, though...after all this was Gwen...but on the other hand Jack had a weird thing for Gwen and it wasn't like Ianto hadn't noticed she was attractive and always smelled nice. He was only human. So, if he and Jack were both here, there was at least one logical conclusion he could draw, if he wanted to fully indulge in the horror of it.

Oh god, Rhys was going to wring his neck.

[I reread this every couple of weeks. Nothing is wasted in the plot; characterization is layered and plausible. Theme: memory.]

"We've been known to provide transportation from time to time," he drawled casually in the common language of this part of the galaxy. Ianto spoke it brokenly. He learned languages during the long periods between ports under Jack's haphazard tutelage. The first words Jack taught him in any tongue were those for restrooms and body parts, which unfortunately meant Ianto was in many languages only capable of asking about putting his cock in the loo.

Jack had lost the ability to inspire fear in Owen, though it was unclear whether the reason was their new situation – reality worse than any bare threats – or whether Owen had finally chosen a cause.

And that was not quite right, he thought, watching Owen patch up their seventeenth refugee. Owen had always been a doctor, and Jack had made him a soldier too. You do not close your ears to a voice in pain; you do not leave a man behind; you do not sit and watch.

rm: Dragon*Con panel recap - Fannish response to character death (Anime/Manga fandom studies)
...I started this research really in response to what I was seeing and experiencing in the Torchwood fandom, which didn't feel new to me, so much as very, very old.

Most of the time there's a lot of anger when I talk about this topic. The Torchwood fandom isn't just still gutted by the narrative events of its third season, but large swathes of it remain in conflict -- with the show writers and producers, and with other fans who have had different responses not just to the program, but to their feelings about it.

And, of course, it's not just Torchwood fandom. Joss Whedon fans are still nursing wounds from deaths like that of Tara on Buffy, and those wounds are very real, even if I posit that they are less likely to create a ritualized mourning response because of the way Whedon structures his narrative arcs.

Jack and Ianto's relationship always reflected that kind of devotion and it was certainly brought to the foreground in Children of Earth, in which Jack and Ianto fight along side each other [...]

In addition to that, there's the scar on Ianto's cheek. I've spoken before on the fact that it is shaped like a Lambda, physically marking him as Queer. I didn't know at the time, but I was later told that the Lambda was a symbol emblazoned on the shields of Spartan warriors, which further strengthens my point of Ianto as a Queer Warrior.

My point is, despite the sweet slow dance at Gwen and Rhys' wedding, the reason Ianto and Jack are awkward about the whole "couple" thing is because, well, they're not really a couple in the modern romantic sense that we think of.

Lengthy, gracefully-handled timey-wimey shenanigans, well-thought-out canon continuity, and touching character development; Nancy fixes CoE without in any way taking the easy way out, right down the to last three mind-blowing paragraphs of "Quadratic".

mellacita: FIC: Everywhere is Walking Distance, If You Have the Time
A fixit as horrifying and more wonderful than canon... and it's entirely canon-compatible. Features a plot point that gives me the heebie-jeebies.

audrarose: FIC: Old Ghosts (TW) Jack/Ianto, PG
Ianto let Martha take his other hand and sighed. "And now?"

"We summon." Gwen closed her eyes and turned her head toward the ceiling far above. "Oh, spirits of -- wait a minute, where are we again?"

"Hell," Ianto said.

"Drummond Castle," Martha replied, elbowing Ianto hard.

Gwen cleared her throat. "Oh, spirits of Drummond Castle, we call upon you! Show yourselves!" She paused. "If you'd like. Please?"

apiphile: [fic] Lost Woman Song
He's crude and ridiculous and not always bright, and he's gobby and he eats like a locust and he makes her laugh until she cries, so easily, so easily. And she loves him with a fierce possessiveness that borders on the demented; when he lies across the bottom of the bed and pretends to bite her toes. When he rests his head on her thigh and says, "How many worlds do you reckon there are?" and "Have you met many aliens?" and "What do they look like?" with the eager excitement of a child, unafraid and interested; he knows it's dangerous but he has accepted that Gwen will be okay on trust; Jack told him so. Rhys trusts Jack because Gwen trusts Jack. That's all.

blue_fjords: FIC: Conversing in Words, Fists, and Grunts
Ianto drives into a ditch and Rhys gives him a ride. This is a short one that will make you smiley-faced without any twee.

_lullabelle_: (Fic) The Secret of a Happy Marriage Remains a Secret
Lisa jerked awake, which jerked Ianto awake. He had no idea what time it was, but it was still completely dark out, and the rain had subsided from a deluge to a drizzle.

"Bad dream?" he asked into her hair.

solsticezero: Nothing Can Happen More Beautiful
Prepared: knowing what he would need to do if she was dead, a list that had been made his on his first day at Torchwood Three and stuck to his mind’s refrigerator door. Unprepared: she couldn’t possibly be dead. It couldn’t happen, not to Gwen, because everyone died, but not people Ianto loved, not like that.

apiphile: [fic] Boiling a Frog
And around Jack's head a whole panoply of sea life in phantasm is circling like a halo.

"It's not just creepy," Ianto corrects. He is carrying a shiny silver thermos. "It's also weird."

smallfuzzy: Love of the Common People
Though he answered her mother's calls -- that much was required to stop Mum setting off to London, all ready to arrange his funeral -- it was some time before he called Rhiannon again. When he did, the happy buzz had left his voice again, a raw, hurt note replacing it. She barely dared ask about Lisa, and when she did, he ducked the subject. A break-up then, she surmised, likely a bad one. Those happened. She only wished Ianto felt more able to talk to them about it.

hauldyourwhist: Fic: Management of Dead Bodies in Disaster Situations, A Field Manual [One Shot]
“Listen, I’m looking for Jack Harkness,” she says. He mentally goes over the names of the dead, and when that doesn’t work, he flicks through the sheaf of paper in front of him. “Wearing an RAF coat,” she elaborates, and suddenly he knows.

bjewelled: FIC: Potentiality 1/8 (Torchwood)
In Torchwood London’s heyday, the fourteenth floor was something of a rite of passage. It was the done thing for new members of a department to get sent up there on some meaningless errand, while their much more knowledgeable colleagues took bets on how long it would take them to get back.

[Jack sends Ianto for some special training. Adventure ensues.]
