Torchwood Fic Recs

Keep in mind that the fics listed below come directly from my "I want to re-read this over and over again" document, and as such they only have the most rudimentary of summaries and I give no explanation for why I enjoyed them. Nevertheless, I hope it will help anyone who's new to the fandom, or just hasn't found everything that's out there yet.

Thanks for posting these- some good ones I haven't read before, and a few I'd forgotten.

Eeeeeee, just what I wanted! Recs!

The Feeling - Janto ship

That's my Torchwood playlist, so see what I have there.


If you needed a hand, that is ;)

Actually, I'd completely forgotten about vids on Youtube. :P I find the bad quality somewhat distracting, and I like downloading vids to my computer so I can watch them over and over again without having to search through links. Maybe I'm just used to it from SGA fandom, where it seemed like the vast majority of vids could be downloaded.

In any case, now that you've brought it up I feel the need to do some more research! Oh, poor me, being forced to watch fanvids. ;) Do you think people would rather get the downloadable vidlist soon, then a later update for Youtube vids I find, or one complete list later on? Hmmm...

Anyways, thanks so much for the suggestions! I always enjoy finding new pretty Torchwood things to watch.

I have a program that I use to get the videos off YouTube so I can download them, convert them and put them on my music player. Looking through links can be fun, though, because you often find other things that you wouldn't have found otherwise.

Hmm...if you've got a downloadable list, then give that, but also a YouTube list would be good, as well. Perhaps making a playlist for everyone or something.

:D New Torchwood things are also good! xxx

Thank you for the lovely recs, there's a good chunk of these I haven't read yet. And those that I have read: bloody good choices to put in!

This is one for the Memories, definitely.

Thank you for these. As one fairly new to the TW fandom, the sheer volume of fic out there is pretty intimidating, so rec lists are awesome.

I'll look forward to the video recs as well!

I'm glad you're finding this post helpful! The fics I've listed above are just the ones I know I'll want to read again and again, so there's still a lot of great fic out there. If you're looking for more recs fairyd123_recs has a ton of them, organized by episode, with much better descriptions than I give here. (Look for her masterlists on the right side of the page.)

In the vid recs post I'll be going into a bit more detail about why I liked each vid, so it won't be quite as bare-bones as this post was. :)

The Master molds Ianto. Dark.


Perhaps a slight understatement! :D Thanks for all the fantastic recs!

Perhaps "pitch black" would have been more appropriate? ;) And you're completely welcome.

Thanks for the recs; I've read several of these now, including "Trying to Communicate"; I can't remember when I laughed that hard!

You've identified some really good ones.

You're welcome! sam_storyteller is a fantastic author, and Trying to Communicate is the kind of crack only a few talented writers could pull off.

To tell the truth, this recslist is as much for me as it is for anybody else. I love rereading awesome fics.
