Check This Fic Out

Fic Of The Week - Week Thirty One

Monday again already! Time seems to pass faster as I get older, which is annoying because I have too many things I want to do and I run out of time before I get around to them.

One not-too-long fic this week, as there are things I HAVE to do this week - Misty the rabbit is having his annual dental surgery on Wednesday, so that's going to be a busy (and worrying) day. He has to have a couple of teeth trimmed and one removed, pretty soon he won't have any teeth left except the front ones.

Anyway, on to the fic. It's a fairly recent (Feb 2001) reel_torchwood fic by vittani that I just didn't have time to read when it was first posted. My Fair Lad is, unsurprisingly, based on the musical My Fair Lady (which is one of my many favourites!) There are 12 parts over 15 posts but they're mostly quite short, so I figure I'll have time to read two or three a day despite real life interfering with my reading time!

Summary: Ianto Jones, the son of a dissolute tailor finds his life altered in amazing ways, when he meets a man who offers him a chance at a better life for him and his Sister. And all he has to do in return is help him win a bet! How hard can it be?

Harder than Ianto thinks, no doubt!

Part 1 is here: http://vittani.livejournal.com/7674.html and the parts all seem to be linked. Hope everyone who hasn't read it will enjoy it - I'm sure I will.

As always, happy reading, everyone!
