Oh. WoW.

I have to admit, I LOVE these little vignets, but I want MORE of the Jack/Ianto one. ..okay, I'll be happy with what I've got. But this set is made of AWESOMENESS.

Of *course* he takes the coffee machine. Or it takes him.

Love these!

That was a lovely bit of fic catharsis. I'm not doing well in the substantive comment department right now, but thank you.

You've made me feel so much better.

[identity profile] rexluscus.livejournal.com 2009-07-14 11:12 pm (UTC)(link)

Yay. :)

Ianto/Mainframe is the best thing ever.

I kind of loved all of those so much. Thank you.

Or everyone dying and going to Torchwood Four? BRILL concept! I'd WATCH that series :)

Oh, those were all so awesome.

*feels stupid*

I thought they were all linked and was like : it's 3 am, just sleep already, you will understand better tomorrow. But dah they are 5 five different outcomes. Yeah I will take my smart medication and come back with a brand new brain one day.

I love the one about TW 12 and secretly the one where Ianto is also immortal (because who wouldn't want to read Jack & Ianto : the adventure of forever).

TW4 is a bit too dark... because forever in a cave ? :/ They are all brilliant for the sort of happy flavour with a bit of dark smudge.
Will drink your coffee again !

Good lord, all of these are so... inspiring, and lovely, and sci fi! Wonderful work.

[identity profile] annemjw.livejournal.com 2009-07-15 06:34 am (UTC)(link)
Also how amused would TW12 be if they didn't know about Jack, and there's Ianto going "My boss at TW3 was Captain Harkness..." Hilarity for all!

Oh this one was awesome! I did enjoy the way you handled the timelines here and timewimey ness and generally that sense of loss and isolation and recognition and whatnot. Awesomeness

This is just what I needed. Especially Day 28,342. I am going to hold that in my head as the truth of what actually happened.

Hope, this is great. Thanks for posting it.

These are all amazing. But coffeegenii!Ianto has taken a place in my heart.
The touch of Jack's mouth gentles, allowing Ianto to return the kiss in equal measure, a liquid caress passing back and forward, tidal in its movement.
That's the best description of a kiss I've read. You are a genius. *goes to smooch hubby now*

This was lovely! I wouldn't mind reading more of every one of those bits! :-)

Omg. I feel like asking you to marry me right now. That was so, so, so GOOD I can't even make a proper compliment, because it just won't be enough. Best post-CoE so far. I can honestly say that I love you right this moment, and that I'd supply you with cookies made of rainbow for the rest of your blessed life. (That's how much Torchwood has screwed me up with its canon made of evil.)

TW12 was my favorite. I so wanted it to continue!

Thank you.

OH that was great.

I loved Ianto's, Jones. Ianto Jones line. That was my favouite line in fragments.

I love all of these so very dearly. Just, perfect.

I LOVE THIS FIC SO MUCH. I can't even put it into words, just everything.
