I'm being daring and choosing a slightly longer fic this week, but that's okay - everyone else has probably already read it anyway, lol!
Torchwood Blues is milady_dragon 's Torchwood Big Bang fic from 2010 that I didn't get around to reading at the time. There are 10 chapters and an epilogue, so it's still not hugely long.
Summary: In the aftermath of the 456 invasion and the birth of their son, Jack
and Ianto retire from Torchwood and decide to travel. Nearly a year later they
end up in New Orleans, where they're dragged back into Torchwood business when an old enemy steals a dangerous piece of alien technology.
Author's notes: This was written for Torchwood Big Bang, and is my first time
writing something like this. This story is based on situations from the movie
"Undercover Blues" starring Dennis Quaid and Kathleen Turner. It's also a
fix-it, in that certain events that occurred during the entire run of Torchwood
happened quite differently; examples being that Toshiko, Owen, and Ianto never died, Owen is not a zombie, Ianto is immortal, and Gwen didn't break the Retcon she received after her discovery of Torchwood.
Immortal Ianto - Just what I need right now!
Take your pick where you want to read it:
So, if anyone other than me hasn't read this yet.... Happy reading! =D
