So, for my third Torchwood rec set, I'm focussing on the interface between Dr. Who's 'Doomsday', 'Utopia' and 'Last of the Time Lords' episodes and Torchwood. The stories here focus on the 'Year That Never Was' and the after effects of Jack's abrupt disappearance at the end of Season 1 and his re-appearance.

Three very short vignettes by three different authors on the same subject. I'm treating them as a single entry because of the unifying concept and the short length. Each story is about what happened to various Torchwood characters during the 'Last of the Time Lords' in the year that never happened. I've seen nothing like them elsewhere and the stories, brief and heartbreaking, are amazing. They were orginally written as backstory for an RPG however, understanding anything about the game isn't needed.

Why should people click? One of the classic, and most outstanding, stories about what might have happened to the Torchwood team during the 'Last of the Time Lords'. This story is simply spectacular and tragic.
He still feels like he's missing something. Something isn't right, something doesn't fit. There's something he's forgotten.
Gwen is waiting for him, tapping out a rhythm on her thigh, smiling. "Ready to go?"
The stab of fear, of dread, of knowing, is so short that it seems imaginary. Forgotten a moment after it happens.
He smiles back at Gwen. "Ready."
Type: Series, AU

Why should people click? Another classic, it was written before Season 2 of Torchwood came out and is one excellent author's idea of what might have happened. Long, plotty, and beautifully done.
And my bonus for this week? Torchwood RPGs! I've just listed all that I could find, some are active, some not so much, some are seeking new players, some are closed, some are journal based, some are forum based. Some are multi-fandom, others are canon compliant.
