rec: live in infamy

We’re onto day four of the Metaltron Marathon of Whofic picking. The penultimate episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day is on today for those in Blighty (whilst you lucky Americans get to see the final one tomorrow) so I figured I should pick something today of a Torchwood number. And what’s better than a nice dose of AU harking back from the very first series?

Story: Live In Infamy
Author: livii
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1425
Author's Summary: Things did get worse after Pearl Harbour. AU for 1x12, Captain Jack Harkness.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Tosh, Owen, Gwen, Ianto.
Warnings: Some Angst and eventual Character Death.

Recced because: This is actually an AU I considered writing myself once but never got round to, but in all honesty I’d say livii had done as great and sombre a take on this logical AU – what if Jack and Tosh had to remain in 1941 after all – and sees these two characters go through the slow path together, tearful and happy moments both. It’s a dark story but it also has one of my favourite rare pairings – Jack/Tosh. This very episode this story branches out of gave them some nice chemistry together and it forever made me wonder afterwards what this would have been like as a pairing, much as I adore Owen/Tosh and Jack/Ianto.
