Genre: Action/Adventure, Drama
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto, Gwen/Rhys, Owen, Tosh, Rhiannon/Johnny, Mica, David, Alice, Steven, PC Andy, OCs

Betas: pinkfairy727 & cailenbraern
Warnings: Character Death
Challenge: Written for tardis_bigbang
Summary: Torchwood is separate from the government, outside the police, beyond the United Nations and detached from family. When someone comes at Torchwood through their families they have to make a choice between what they love and what they protect. With the threat on a personal level emotions are running high, and when secrets from the past are unearthed the team come close to splitting forever. But there's one last secret Torchwood is keeping that none of the team, not even Jack, knew about.
A/N: How I wrote this while writing my final year dissertation for my degree and moving house I shall never know (and not forgetting the complete lack of internet). All I know is that I wouldn’t have done it without my cheerleaders and my wonderful betas who are always on hand with wacky ideas and much needed inspiration when word drought strikes. Thank you.

Fic: How Did The Chicken Get Sick?

Title: How Did The Chicken Get Sick?
Author: Erin Giles
Rating: G
Words: 2100
Disclaimer: Torchwood is the intellectual property of the BBC. Rhiannon, Finn and Rona, however, belong to me.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto, Rhiannon, Finn, Rona
Summary: AU. FitS. The kids have chicken pox, and being confined to quarantine has allowed Finlay to add to his comic repertoire, much to the annoyance of Ianto.
A/N: This is for pinkfairy727, electrictoes and aranellaurelot because they asked for Finn fic and they’re all a bad influence when it comes to that boy! Special thanks to cailenbraern for looking this over, and putting up with the bad jokes too. This is part of my Footprints in the Sand series, so in case you’re confused: Ianto has a sister, Rhiannon, who lives with him, as do her two kids, Finlay and Rona. Jack also lives with Ianto, because this is one of those happily ever type universes where there are fairytale endings!

‘Welcome to quarantine.’

"I solemnly swear I am up to no good."

Here follows spoilers for Torchwood Season 4: The Roswell Years. You've been warned.

1. Ianto is coming back! Word along the grape vine is that Ianto Jones will return in the fourth season but not as we've ever seen him before. Gareth David-Lloyd is not set to reprise his role of the erstwhile tea-boy, but his name will indeed live on in the body of another character. Details have not yet been released, but speculation has been made that Kai Owen will be taking on the role of Ianto Jones following a complicated brain transplant procedure to take place in the first episode after his character, Rhys Williams, is abducted by aliens.

2. Burn Gorman and Naoko Mori are set to reprise their rolls as Doctor Owen Harper and Toshiko Sato in a flashback episode that explains how Jack Harkness bedded every single member of his team. John Barrowman has said how much he's looking forward to working with Gorman and Mori again.

3. Kai Owen has now confirmed that Gwen and Rhys' baby has a name. Russell T. Davies has agreed to name Gwen and Rhys' baby Duncan Cooper-Williams.

4. Robert Downy Jnr and Jude Law are reported to be appearing in the second episode. Downey Jnr is set to play a mysterious detective that tries to unravel the mystery behind Torchwood, accompanied by his friend and colleague (Law) who is also said to be reprising his role later on in the season as the team's new Doctor.

5. Torchwood are set to investigate the Roswell crash in the fourth season. With Torchwood now stretching out across the ocean, Davies has said that he hopes to explore the existence of aliens in America as well as in Cardiff. Robbie Williams is said to be playing a UFO enthusiast that calls Torchwood in when a suspected UFO crashes in Area 51 for the second time.

6. It is yet to be confirmed, but whispers backstage say that Torchwood are to take to Broadway. No, an all musical episode is not in the works, but sources say that Torchwood America are to be based in an old disused Broadway Theatre allowing John Barrowman free reign to burst into song both on and off camera. As well as the change of venue, it appears that Captain Jack is finally trading in his retro military attire for something more modern. The costume department have let slip that Barrowman will be trading his RAF blues for a more modern green combat, fresh from the Middle East.

7. Other casting rumours that have been heard in the undergrowth are Robert Pattinson who is set to play a new love interest for Captain Jack Harkness, Russell Brand who plays a gaming geek that is discovered by Torchwood after hacking into the pentagon and Sir Ian McKellan as the proprietor of the building in which Torchwood America are located.

Fic: Too Old To Play Games

TITLE: Too Old to Play Games
AUTHOR: Erin Giles
DISCLAIMER: Torchwood is the intellectual property of the BBC.
WORDS: 1500
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Gwen, Ianto, Jack (Jack/Ianto, Gwen/Rhys mentioned)
SUMMARY: Set during & post Doctor Who's Journey’s End. Ianto thinks he’s too old to be playing games, but he’ll realise sooner or later that he’s playing the biggest game every day of his life.
A/N: All mistakes are my own as this is completely un-betaed.

There was no room for those three words in a place where romantic ideals did not exist, in a relationship where things were never comfy between them, and Ianto could quite happily live with that for however short a time it may be.

Fic: A Moment of Doubt

Title: A Moment of Doubt
Author: Erin Giles
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: Torchwood is property of the BBC.
Characters/Pairings: Owen, Ianto, Jack
Summary: Post Adrift. There is that moment of doubt in all our minds about whether we’re playing the hero or the villain of the piece.
A/N: This is an attempt on my part to rectify the lack of Owen in my writing, and the relationship that Owen and Ianto should have had.

Fic: Dona eis Requiem

Title: Dona eis Requiem
Author: Erin Giles
Rating: PG
Words: 2900
Characters/Pairings: Gwen/Rhys, Jack/Ianto, Tosh/Owen, Steven, Alice, Mica, David, The Doctor, OC
Summary: Post CoE. Christmas is a lonely time of year for Jack.
A/N: Title translates to ‘Grant them rest’ and the word cwtch is Welsh for hug. Also, I think I must be the only person on the planet that can make a Christmas fic into angst fest 2009 (or 2010 as it is now). I hope everyone’s Christmas was better than Jack’s. Also thank you to galaxysong for coming up with random names for things at stupid o’clock in the morning and pinkfairy727 who struggled through her tears to beta this for me.

Maybe they mean they are exhausted with their own company."

Fic: All That We See

AUTHOR: Erin Giles
DISCLAIMER: Torchwood is property of the BBC.
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Jack/Ianto, The Doctor, Jack/OFC
SUMMARY: Sometimes a dream is just a dream.
SPOILERS: Set post-CoE.
AUTHORS NOTES: It is entirely possible that I have been reading far too much literature of late, so if you get all the literary references then you get a cookie. Also my beta, pinkfairy727, has informed me that this cannot be read without crying, so this has a severe tissue warning and comes with a free hug.

"Live my life around a picture..."

I'm back in Glasgow again. Yes, I did leave and go to Wales for a week, what do you mean you didn't even notice?!

First of all, I have good news:

1. Finished my exam. (results are out on the 19th Sept)
2. Handed my essay in.
3. Found a flat and paid the deposit/first months rent (am VERY skint now, but that's not good news...) and I move in on the 23rd of this month.

So the only thing I've got left to do really is find a job. So while I'm packing (again) I'll edit my CV and print some out so I can go round places job hunting when I get back to Aber, while working for the Union as a 'guide' to International Students. Sorted.

Also for your viewing pleasure (and this is VERY image heavy, you have been warned) and because I can't really be arsed to do a lot of writing, I'll let Dylan Thomas and pictures do the work.
