Torchwood Genre Finders


[Current Music |something classic Disney]

Hey guys, I checked the comm, but what's under this tag doesn't have exactly what I want, so I was hoping you all could help :D

So, rec any and all Janto-centric, post-Something Borrowed fics, please. only stipulation is it has to have a happy ending, but it can be as angsty as anything before that or not. (The Doctor likes bananas, I like conflict/angst)
I've read quite a few, but I'd like to see more. Thanks.

Here's what I came up with. I've tagged this list on Delicious under storyfinder:jackiantopostsomethingborrowedhappyending. (Type that three times fast. ;))

I did waffle a bit about including "Something Blue" because, while it's a darn good story, I wasn't sure it fit all your parameters. I put a "highlight to read" note on it, and if you want more information I'll be glad to elaborate.

Jack/Ianto Post-Something Borrowed

Magwitch by angstosaur

We Could Have Paris by beesandbrews

These Parts Won't Break by clockstopper

Subterranean Homesick Alien by curriejean

Holding On Is Hard To Do by demotu

Half the Battle by ivy03

House of Glass and Fog by ladyofcastillo

Catharsis by nightanddaze

Something Blue by pen_strokes Content information, highlight to read: Contains dubious consent. Also, while there's resolution and healing in place and Jack and Ianto are definitely together, the end of the story is more the promise of the happy ending than the thing itself.

a few things: first, THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THESE

I've actually read Something Blue by pen_strokes but thank you for putting the warnings in there anyways. how did you do that?

I happen to be working my way through angstosaur's fics, (I just caught up on Bad Seed) so I guess I'll read Magwitch first :D

You're welcome. :)

I got the basic HTML for the highlight bar here:


I put the full version (with the skip link for readers using adapative software) on my story pages, then realized that the highlight part could be used when I wanted to say something about a story I was reccing but didn't necessarily want to give away a plot point willy-nilly. It's very useful. :)
