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 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.
