Fic: Desperate Measures (complete in 2 parts)  
Title: Desperate Measures (1/2)
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto, with the team and Martha.
Rating: PG or there abouts.
Word Count: 4600
Warnings: temporary character deaths
A/N thank you to mcparrot who beta'd some of this for me ages ago. I've probably done so much picking about with it that I probably accidentally added mistakes again. So if you find any, that's down to me.


Written for the prompt: Ianto is the one shot at the end of Reset...does he die, become the living dead or does Ianto find out he is immortal.

I know somebody gave me this prompt ages ago, and I can't remember who. So sorry for the wait whoever you are, I hope you're still around the fandom to read it.

It had all happened so quickly, Jack thought. )

Title: Dandelion Clocks
Fandom: Rivers of London.
Rating: G
Characters/Pairing: Thomas Nightingale, past Thomas Nightingale/David Mellenby.
Word Count: 2050
A/N: Thank you to Philomytha for betaing this for me. Any errors that remain are my own.

Summary: It is said that to have loved and lost is preferable to having never loved at all. Nightingale was never sure whether it was true or not, both carried with them their own particular kind of loss.

So many relationships had been doomed by the war. )

Fic: Break and Breakaway. (Complete - sort of.)  
So here's the first piece of the series fics that will eventually be Tom McNair/Andy Davidson. This one is all Being Human based, the next will be all Torchwood based as will be all about Andy post Children of Earth. After which point the third fic should actually be them meeting.

Not sure how much sense this fic will make unless you've seen the series five episode Pie and Prejudice.

Title: Break and Breakaway.
Characters/Pairings: Tom, Alex and Hal. (Plus mentions of other main characters)
Rating: PG
Word count: 2400
Contains: Mention of previous canon character deaths. Spoilers for things up to 5x03.
A/N: AU for 5x03 Pie and Prejudice. Although this is a standalone fic and can be read as such, it's also a prequel for a Being Human/Torchwood crossover fic series of that I'm currently writing.

Summary: Tom comes to a decision about his life.

It was better like this, he told himself as he slipped unseen out of Honolulu Heights in the middle of the night )

Fic: A Different Path (3/3) Complete.  
Title: A Different Path. (Part 3 of 3)
Characters/Pairings: Ianto/Lisa, 9th Doctor. (Past Doctor/Rose and
past Doctor/Jack/Rose implied. Brief mention of 8th Doctor and Fitz (from the books) that can be read as Doctor/Fitz if wanted.)
Fandom: Doctor Who/Torchwood. (AU from Parting of the Ways for Doctor Who)
Rating: R (see warning)
Word count: 2750 (this part of about 7k total)
Warning: Assisted suicide of minor canon character.
Summary: The Doctor had meant it to be a quick stop in Cardiff to refuel the TARDIS, then back out into time and space, alone once more after losing Rose to a parallel world. What he hadn't expected was to pick up the energy signature of an operational cyberconversion unit.  
A/N: Sorry for how late this is (and it is really, really late, I posted the other two parts in February last year) There might end up being more in this 'verse, but there aren't any definite plans at the moment.

Part one is here: http://the-silver-sun.livejournal.com/169749.html#cutid1

Fic: Mainframe, Hex and the Temporal Trouser Error.  
Title: HEX, Mainframe and the Temporal Trouser Error.
Character(s)/pairings: Mainframe (Torchwood's computer) and HEX (Discworld), Connor Temple (Primeval)
Fandom and/or Prompt: Discworld, Torchwood and Primeval.  
Rating: G
Word Count: 1872
Spoilers/Warnings: No warnings. Vague spoilers for Torchwood: 
Children of Earth, and even vaguer ones for Doctor Who (new series 3). Primeval to early series 3. No spoilers for anything Discworld apart from the existence of HEX.
A/NThis should have been for [livejournal.com profile] consci_fan_mo, but I didn't get it finished in time. This fic is by far the oddest thing I've written. The prompt it was for was +++ Divide By Cucumber Error. Please Reinstall Universe And Reboot +++ so sensible was probably never going to happen.


Deep under Cardiff in the crumbling remains of the Torchwood Hub, one of the screens flickered on. Text in a font not available anywhere on Earth appeared jerkily letter by letter. )

Fic: The Dances and Lives We Lead. (Written for Torchwood-Fest)  
Written for [livejournal.com profile] torchwood_fest where the reveals are now up.

Title: The Dances and Lives We Lead.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] the_silver_sun
Word Count: 4200
Giftee: Community.
Pairing: Jack/Nancy, Jack/Jack (sort of) 
Characters:The real Captain Jack Harkness, Nancy Floyd, Bilis Manger.
Rating: PG
Summary: When the light faded and Jack was left alone on the dance floor at the Ritz Ballroom he found he had more questions to ask himself than those around him did. To them he could lie, to himself that was much harder.
Warnings:Mention of period homophobic attitudes. 
Contains:Cheating on partner if you consider the Jack/Jack dance and kiss in the episode Jack cheating on Nancy.  Possible/implied character death.
Setting/Time: Series One
Beta: Harkpad02
Disclaimer: Torchwood belongs to the BBC and not to me, I'm just writing this for fun.
A/N:Thank you to Harkpad02 for betaing this for me. I've used the Torchwood canon from the BBC series one website of Jack's plane disappearing after engaging enemy aircraft when coming back from a training exercise, rather than the Doctor Who canon of him failing to report for duty one morning.  I'm also assuming that Jack is meant to be the same age as Matt Rippy, about mid thirties. The Air Transport Auxiliary and RAF Pengam Moors really did exist, although Jack's squadron, the 133rd, was never based there.

 
The light that had been so brilliantly bright around them as to make them seen like they were the only two people left in the world faded, leaving Captain Jack Harkness alone in the middle of the dance floor. )
