Rec: Nemo Me Impune Lacessit by derryderrydown

Torchwood will soon return to our screens, so here's a story to remember what was.

Story: Nemo Me Impune Lacessit
Author: derryderrydown
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 6601
Author's Summary: "You let Ianto fall into the Rift," Jack said, with a level of strained calm that had Owen edging towards the door. "Alright." He took a deep breath. "But you should know that nobody sleeps until we find him. And I'm probably going to fire you all."
Characters/Pairings: Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness
Warnings: Explicit Sex
Recced because: I have read a lot of Jack/Ianto fics. No really, a lot. And most of them were pretty good, because I’m quite a cautious reader. But this one is one of those that stuck in my mind, and that I still come back to. I don’t want to give too much away, but it is in many ways a very unusual story, which tries to cast light on who the characters are, even when they’re not quite themselves, focussing on what’s fundamental to them and their relationship. It also delves into Jack’s past in rather brilliant way, beautifully highlighting how he’s changed over the years, and why. Plus, it’s just a really good, well-written story. Oh and hot too! :)
