builtofsorrow: (tw | ianto | men are confusing)
title: Penned in This Century's Type-Ruined Hand
fandom: Torchwood
pairing: Jack/Ianto
rating: PG-ish(?), for some innuendo.
words: ~1,000
author's notes: Title from Lisa Hannigan's Venn Diagram. Annnnd... apparently I'm on a sappy kick. I have no excuse for this, other than that it's Christmastime, and I have entered into full-on Laura-Linney-in-Love-Actually Mode (for those to whom that means nothing: I am fully in the throes of unrequited love angst). This might be a bit cavity-inducing, is what I'm saying.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] trinsy_fics, because I a) love her, and b) know she could use a bit of cheering. &hearts!

Jack falls in love with Ianto at least once a week. )
builtofsorrow: (tw | maybe this could save us)
title: Five Times Captain Jack Harkness Fell In Love With One of His Team Members (& One Time He Knew It Would Last)
characters: Jack Harkness, mentions of Suzie, Tosh, Owen, Gwen, Martha, Ianto, & the Doctor
rating/warnings: PG to PG-13ish (for a bit of swearing). Some slash, obviously.
words: ~1,500
spoilers: None, really.
notes: Written (in rather a bit of a rush, so I make no promises) for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] safebox/[livejournal.com profile] such_heights on her birthday, and originally posted at [livejournal.com profile] willbetime.

‘I bring you all the way to Desidnufor, and all you two do is sneak away for a snog?’ )
builtofsorrow: (nmtb | christnukah)
title: This is Torchwood
characters: Martha Jones; the members of Torchwood Three
rating: PG
words: ~2,500
spoilers: This is really not canon, so not a whole lot, really, though there are references to 1x06 ('Countrycide'), and 1x07 ('Greeks Bearing Gifts').
disclaimer: I don't own any of it (or much else besides).
author's notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] lifeonmartha Ficafest, and yes, finished embarrassingly late. -hides- I claimed the prompts Christmas at Torchwood & Reference to Ancient Greece (which ended up being references to 300, but hey, that's set in Ancient Greece, so it totally counts, right?).
Many thanks to my usual lovelies: [livejournal.com profile] un_titled_love, [livejournal.com profile] lexiedoh, and [livejournal.com profile] trinsy_fics, who listened, encouraged, and betaed along the way.


'For Torchwood-' Martha continues. 'For freedom-' Ianto adds. 'How many times have you two watched that film?' Jack asks, laughing helplessly. )
builtofsorrow: (dw | m&j | returned to our old kingdoms)
title: No Longer at Ease (In the Old Dispensation)
fandom: Doctor Who
characters: Martha Jones and Jack Harkness, primarily. Brief appearances by the Torchwood team. Briefer appearances by Tish & Leo Jones.
rating: PGish
words: 3,340
spoilers: DW S3 'Utopia'(11) through 'Last of the Time Lords'(13). References to TW S1 generally, and more specifically 'They Keep Killing Suzie'(08) and 'Combat'(11). (But you don't necessarily need to have watched TW for it to make sense.) No definitive spoilers, per se, unless you have no idea what happens at the end of DW S3.
author's notes: Title from T.S. Eliot's Journey of the Magi.
For [livejournal.com profile] lexiedoh, who swoons with me over Jack, betaed extensively, enabled me along the way, and listened to my angst. Thanks go as well to [livejournal.com profile] un_titled_love & [livejournal.com profile] trinsy_fics, who also betaed & reassured. (♥!)
Any remaining mistakes are, of course, my fault.

...I had seen birth and death/But had thought they were different; this Birth was/Hard and bitter agony for us, like Death, our death/We returned to our places, these Kingdoms/But no longer at ease here, in the old dispensation/With an alien people clutching their gods. )

------------

Feedback & concrit are equally appreciated, adored, and reciprocated with banana daiquiris. ♥
