Those of you who read my last story, Sixty Minutes An Hour, will remember a little poll I had at the end – about which one-shot I should post next. Turned out you lot were pretty evenly divided between two of the choices… so I decided to put them both up. Think of it as thanks for the overwhelming (to me) response to Sixty Minutes An Hour.
I’ll be off the grid for the next ten or so days. Enjoy the fics; I’ll be looking forward to reading the responses when I get back. =D
Title: a clearer light
Summary: Five times Ianto almost tells Jack he loves him, and the one time he actually gets around to it.
Warning(s): Angst; Ianto!whump. Spoilers for Cyberwoman, Countrycide, End of Days, Adam and From Out of the Rain.
Author's Notes: Always wanted to write a 5+1 fic, so I asked my beta for a suggestion. She said, “I’ve got something sappy,” and offered me this. *points at summary*
Me being me, I took what should’ve been sappy and turned it into angst. Go me!
FYI, there’s a quietly positive ending after all the sad!Ianto. =D

Title: A Hundred and Fifty Years
Pairing(s): Jack/Ianto (trust me and wait till the end)
Summary: In which Jack Harkness meets a quiet young man who knows far more than he should.
“Okay,” Jack said, shrugging and striding towards the door. He opened it, leaned out and said, “Whatever you’re selling, we’re not buying.”
Rose muffled a laugh. The man in front of him took one look at him, sighed, and looked up at the skies.
“This is some sort of sick cosmic joke, isn’t it?” he asked rhetorically.
Warning(s): Minor mentions of a few DW (S1/2) and TW (S2) eps, but no real spoilers.
Author's Notes: Crossover with Doctor Who. The Doctor and Rose are present, but nothing major happens with them; the focus is on Jack.
