rec: the death of me | toy box

Story: The Death of Me
Author: serenity_jane
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3219
Author's Summary: Fifty years after his own time, John Ellis took his own life. Not alone, though, because Jack knew there were many ways to go, and dying alone was worse than dying with company. Ianto, however, doesn't see it that way.
Characters/Pairings: Ianto Jones/Jack Harkness
Warnings: Swearing - Angst, Drama

Recced because: My second rec in this post is pure crack, so I'm hedging my bets with a neat little piece of Jack/Ianto angst. I always found the scene where Jack stays with John Ellis while he takes his own life to be strangely disturbing and reassuring at the same time. Serenity_jane's take on Ianto's impression of things is dark and bitter and very Ianto.

Story: Toy Box
Author: wish wielder
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2271
Author's Summary: As reunions go, this was a bit…well, ridiculous. Not that anyone was asking him, of course…
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: I haven't yet posted anything that could be classed as pure crack ... and this one certainly can! Of all the fandoms I've read fic from, DW is uniquely formed for brilliant crackfic. This is a fine example of a common theme (post Doomsday reunion) which from the very first sentence has an enjoyable air of the ridiculous about it. Bits of it could have been tighter, but I stumbled upon this today when I was visiting for the links to the last few fics I'm reccing ... and it was the check-out aisle impulse buy of my week in the calufrax spotlight. Enjoy.
