Fic Of The Week - Week Twenty Four

The last week has certainly flown by! Hope everyone enjoyed last week's fic. I know I did! For this week, I've picked two very different fics - a reel_torchwood fic and a CoE fixit. I felt like a bit of variety, lol!

The first one is iolo1234 's take on Tootsie, the Dustin Hoffman film, using our lovely Torchwood characters. Originally posted in February 2011, it's called I've Just Got To Do It Without The Dress and is 9 shortish chapters, just the thing to brighten up these rainy June days.

Here's the author's summary: Jack Harkness is desperate to work but finds the only way he can get a job is in a dress. He meets Ianto Jones. Will true love win out? I have set this in the original time of the film so sexual attitudes reflect that time in the television industry. I have also used the original script but with a few twists.

I love the movie, so I'm looking forward to this! Chapters are in consecutive posts, but are not linked, so here's where to find them.

Chapter 1:
Chapter 2:
Chapter 3:
Chapter 4:
Chapter 5:
Chapter 6:
Chapter 7:
Chapter 8:
Chapter 9: 

This week's second fic is
Once Lost by jax25 , a 6 part Children Of Earth fixit, posted between September 2009 and August 2010. Most parts are rated NC-17, so you know what to expect!

Summary:  The end is where we start from.  This fix-it picks up from where TW: Children of Earth left off.  It is just one example of how Ianto Jones could easily be reinstated into the story. 

Parts aren't linked and are quite widely scattered, so here they are:

Part 1:
Part 2:
Part 3:
Part 4:
Part 5:
Part 6: 

Right, so there you go, hope everyone finds something to enjoy in this week's choices! Happy reading!
