Fic Roundup

I want to extend thanks to everyone who participated in this year's ficathon. We have a lot of great fics and I am enjoying reading them all! If you haven't had a chance yet, be sure to thank the person who wrote your fic. Everyone spent a lot of time, many writing well out of their comfort zones. If you can, take this opportunity to go back and read some of the other stories posted. Many of these characters have little or no other fic written about them, and every comment on a story about a woman who doesn't show up often in fanfic may encourage someone else to write more about her.

Don't forget, November 3rd kicks off the bonus round. If you have extra fics, from a drabble to an epic, you can post them here starting tomorrow (per your local time zone). Plus, we'll put up an orphaned prompts post for commentfics to encourage short and spontaneous writing. Stay tuned!

Title: The Dark
Recipient: mahmfic
Author: ms_bekahrose
Rating: Mature (Possibly Adult)
Characters/Pairings: Suzie
Spoilers and Warnings: Child Abuse, Non-Con, Death, Angst
Summary: Suzie's back story. Why she is so angry at her father, and how she joined Torchwood.
Beta: magikalrhiannon did an AMAZING job of stepping up to the plate at the last minute after my original beta butchered the crap out of this story.
Author Notes: This was, without a doubt a REALLY amazing prompt, and from the moment I saw it, the fic wrote itself. Written in a series of six drabbles, I haven't written a truly angsty piece in ages. I apologise that there is no real comfort in this fic, but thank you for such an amazing prompt.

Fic The letter of Truth

Sorry this is slightly late but I am hoping it is still the 1st of November somewhere when this is posted -computer does not work nice to deadlines :(

Title: A letter of truth
Recipient: queenfanfiction

Author: pomkeygeekange
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Jack, Ianto, Estelle

Fic: Life is all around (us)

Title: Life is all (around us)
Recipient: 51stcenturyfox
Author: manikineko
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Gwen Cooper, Jack Harkness
Spoilers and Warnings: mentions of death, spoilers for "They keep killing Suzie"
Summary: Gwen is dealing with her mortality after Suzie came back
Beta: n/a
Author Notes: Originally I wanted to go with the funny prompt of the girls playing a joke on the guys but then I took a walk and looked at the autumn trees around me. Autumn is my favourite season and I remembered someone once asking me about this “Doesn’t it bother you that things are dying around you everywhere in autumn?” So here I had the perfect thought for the story about Gwen and death, I hope you’ll like it. Thanks for the awesome prompt!

Please be aware that Gwen’s thoughts are in italic font.

P.S. You might have noticed that the title consists of a quote from Suzie in “They keep killing Suzie :-)

Fic: Amused Banana

Title: Amused Banana
Recipient: rainyrocket
Author: mahmfic
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Martha, Hinted/Implied Tom/Martha and Jack/Ianto.

Summary: Martha has a secret identity -- as a comedian.
Beta: czarina_kitty and bookwormsarah

Fic: Written By The Lipstick

Title: Written By The Lipstick
Recipient: remindmeofthe for the tw_femficfest
Author: 51stcenturyfox
Rating: PG-13

Spoilers and Warnings: Torchwood MD: The Blood Line
Summary: Jilly has a job after all.
Beta: neifile7 and golden_d
Author Notes: Prompt: Jilly Kitzinger re-writes history. This is actually more of a tag for the Blood Line than an AU, because this actually happens after the episode while Gwen, Jack, Rhys and Rex were at Esther's funeral/freaking out.

Author: nancybrown

Fic: But It Won't Pay the Rental

Title: But It Won’t Pay the Rental
Recipient: analineblue
Author: golden_d
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Jilly Kitzinger
Spoilers and Warnings: Spoilers for Miracle Day.
Summary: “I had to sell my own jewelry.”
Beta: The ever-lovely 51stcenturyfox.
Author Notes: Prompt: “What it’s like to be stuck in Shanghai post-Blessing.”
Link to Story: Thank god the exchange rate was favorable.

"Rewritten," G, Alice and Rhiannon

Title: "Rewritten"
Recipient: manikineko
Author: remindmeofthe
Rating: G
Characters: Rhiannon Davies, Alice Carter; genfic
Spoilers and Warnings: Spoilers for CoE, especially episodes four and five, and general concept spoilers for Doctor Who 5x13, "The Big Bang." No warnings.
Summary: Rhiannon Davies doesn't believe in the stars.
Author Notes: This is set in the starless AU from "The Big Bang." All you really need to know is that the universe is slowly imploding and only the Earth remains in existence, which is making the timeline fracture and causing all kinds of wacky paradoxes (including the events of this fic, since technically it occurs well after that reality ceased to exist).

Funnily enough, the one thing I absolutely did not want to do for this fest was a CoE story because I just didn't want to watch it again, but manikineko's request for a meeting between Alice and Rhiannon grabbed me instantly, so I did it anyway. Totally worth it. :D Thanks for the great prompt!

Link to Story: Here!
Title: Mauve and Dangerous
Recipient: pomkeygeekange
Author: amilyn
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: canon pairings (references to: Tosh/Owen, Gwen/Owen, Suzie/Owen, Gwen/Rhys, Jack/Ianto...you get the picture)
Spoilers and Warnings: Spoilers through "Random Shoes" and vague for S2 events, no warnings apply.
Summary: Tosh is lonely and bitter. Owen is lascivious, and Gwen is infatuated. Jack and Ianto make eyes at each other. Oh, and a goopy blob-monster attacks a Cardiff neighbourhood. Torchwood, business as usual.
Beta: b1uemorpho and nancybrown.
Author Notes: See end.
Link to Story: At AO3 or at My LiveJournal.

To All the People That You Became

Title: To All the People That You Became
Recipient: jolinarjackson
Author: analineblue
Pairing/Characters: Gwen, Rhiannon, Rhys; mentions of Jack/Ianto, Rhys/Gwen
Warnings/Spoilers: spoilers through the end of CoE
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~2,460
Beta: sariagray
Summary: Gwen and Rhiannon share a chance meeting in a coffee shop, post-CoE.

Notes: Written for jolinarjackson’s awesome tw_femficfest prompt “Coincidentally, Rhiannon meets Gwen in a coffee shop shortly after CoE. They talk.” :) I really hope you enjoy this, and that it falls in line with what you had in mind! ♥ Many thanks to sariagray for the wonderful beta as well – any remaining mistakes are my own. And thanks to the mods too, for all their hard work – this is my first time participating in something like this, and I had a blast. :)

Title: Running In The Family
Recipient: mcparrot
Author: queenfanfiction
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Alice/Johnson/Lois, Gwen/Rhys (& Anwen), Martha Jones, Alice/Rex, Jack, Alice/Jenny
Spoilers and Warnings: Set post-CoE and through/after MD. Potential triggers of suicidal contemplation, aliens getting shot in the head, humans not being able to die while select others are now capable of doing so DAMN YOU RTD, and blacked-out sex of all flavors. (I'm an equal-opportunity kind of girl.)
Summary: There are many ways in which Alice takes after her father, some of which she appreciates more than others.
Beta: sariagray beta'ed the hell out of this fic and I think the fic liked it.
Author Notes: Based on a combination of two of Parrot's prompts (Alice meeting Jack again, and Alice being a kickarse secret agent), and basically an AU of 's "In My Unique Position". (Fear not, Nancy—it returns to canon by the epilogue!)
