Finally. After all these years. Here it is. All the best Jack/Ianto fics I’ve ever found. Please read all of these. They are Important to me.
The Stars Might Stick Where You Stand (M, 20,000+ words) Reverse!verse, with Ianto as the sad immortal leader and Jack as the recruit with a secret. One of the best explorations of character I have ever seen in a fic.
Lovers In A Dangerous Time (M, 4,500+) Lovely bit of get-together. Touch of angst, but touches of everything else. Great characterization of Jack.
Worrisome Heart (M, 45,000+) 20s AU. Jack and the crew run a speakeasy that Ianto stumbles into the life of. A beautiful setting piece, with gritty real Ianto.
Walking the Streets of Cardiff in the Rain (T, 6,500+) Four words: Ianto is a werewolf.
Nomen Animam Meam (G, 2,000+) Soulmates Tattoo verse. Lovely insight into Jack and Ianto’s childhoods. Bit angsty, but worth it.
Last Song at the Midnight Cafe (M, 2,500+) CoE Fix-it. Jack literally goes through hell and back for Ianto. Minor gore and body horror.
Just Another Word (For Nothing Left to Lose) (M, 25,000+) I can’t explain it better than the actual summary: “Ianto’s records show that he was a junior researcher. That’s not entirely correct, but then, Mainframe always protects her own.”
Tryst (M, 5,500+) Angst. Glorious, sad angst. “Otherwise known as “A Blind Date with Your Boyfriend, Later.”
and every color illuminates (M, 12,000+) Post-House of the Dead. Ianto’s on an alien planet, and Jack must find him and rescue him. I just botched the summary there but it’s great please read it.
No Word for Yes (T, 2,000+) Some lovely worldbuilding on Jack’s past, and some insight on that rift between him and Ianto. Fluff, though!
Timewatching (M, 5,000+) "Or, Five Ways Ianto Jones Seduces Captain Jack Harkness" Have I mentioned how much I love Ianto Jones and his tenacity?
