Fic Of The Week - Week Nineteen

Hi, everyone! Hope all of you in England are having a good bank holiday!

As I'm still trying to catch up with milady_dragon 's Big Bang and reel_torchwood fics, this week's first fic is another one of hers - The Shop At The Mall. I expect most of you will have already read it, but for those of you who haven't, it's 8 chapters and is based on the 1940 movie The Shop Around The Corner - not to be confused with the more recent movie "You've Got Mail", which was based on the original screenplay.

Summary:  It's nearing the Christmas season at Williams Electronics, where store manager Jack Harkness finds himself juggling a boss who suddenly seems to hate him, a well-meaning but meddling friend, an anonymous pen-pal he's rapidly falling in love with, and the newest employee who seems determined to bring out the worst in him.  Can he get through the holidays without making a total mess of his life?

Sounds like it will be angsty, but milady_dragon can always be counted on for a happy ending!

Chapter 1 is here on LJ: 
Or on Dreamwidth: , chapters are helpfully linked.

Fic two this week is
The Fountain Watch, a 5 chapter fic from 2009 by winter_rose91 . It's not a long fic, so I shouldn't have any problem reading them both in a week - I hope!

Summary: The Fountain Watch is an ornate and beautiful piece, but as Ianto Jones is soon to find out, it is also extremely dangerous. This sounds like it will be exciting!

Chapter 1 is here: and chapters are linked.

So, that's it for this week! Happy reading, everyone!
