Rec: Waiting for Death

First of all, apologies are in order. I was planning to be able to rec MORE the last couple of weeks, but Life has not worked out as anticipated. :D That being said, I do still have a few more days as your official reccer here, so despite time and tide, I will do my best to make sure I get a few more goodies out to you all before it is all over! Starting with this one:

Story: Waiting for Death
Author: badly_knitted
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 442
Author's Summary: In the aftermath of the bombs going off, Jack lays in the wreckage, trapped and waiting to die.
Characters/Pairings: Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness
Warnings: Angst, Drama, Introspection, Missing Scene, Standalone

Recced because: I loved Torchwood. And though this is a 'short but sweet' fiction, it captures the events, emotions and thoughts of the characters very, very well - putting you in the moment of this scene. This author's fictions (mostly in drabble-form) are well worth the time to read! I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I have enjoyed reccing it! But in case you need a touch more convincing, here is a taste of what you will be delving into:


As Jack lay dying in an abandoned warehouse, beneath a pile of rubble, his mind flitted back through the years and the deaths, all the little moments that had brought him to this place and time. He drew another shallow, laboured, pain-filed breath. The slow deaths were always the worst; they allowed far too much time for thoughts and reminiscences.


Go - enjoy!! And be sure to take time to read more of her work, as it is excellent and always hits the mark!
