Reading and Recs

Last night I finished a quite long story that was so saccharinely sweet that I not only wanted to gag, I skipped through large parts of it just to get to the end without missing anything crucial. I won't mention any names, because the author clearly put in a lot of work and was obviously proud of it. It just was so not to my taste. Anyway, it sent me looking through my saved folder for something to take away the super-sweet aftertaste, and I was reminded of my two all-time favorite stories, which I am now going to rec here. Yay, me. I may have rec'd them before, but oh, well. These are both AU, by the way.

One of the first stories I ever read, and immediately fell in love with, is 'Guard Them, And Him Within', by etharei It is just riveting. Not our world, not our Jack, and yet....

The second one is quite long, and continues on, but the first 45 chapters are the real story. This is one of the best fics I have ever read, and I keep going back to it all the time. Parts of it are hard to read, and very sad, but it shows both Jack and Ianto as the courageous men they are. I just love this one. It's 'What Never Should Be', by blucougar57

I love fanfiction.net, too, because you can download an entire story in one fell swoop, convert it, and send it on to Kindle. Technology, it's a good thing.

Re: Thank you !
Oh! You are very welcome. I can get wordy, and always think I've said too much. Really glad I could be of help. Enjoy reading. I think if you are a big reader, you would love a Kindle. Takes up very little room, you can even borrow books from your library for it if they are set up for that. You can borrow books from Amazon, too, but just one a month. Weird policy. Anyway, yay, downloading. LOL
