Bliss by DameRuth [Reviews - 12]
AU Rose/Jack/Nine OT3 -- completely non-compatible with both the Findersverse, and the "Three Amigos" series. Starts angst-y, gets lighter as it goes . . . Much fluff, romance, and happy endings.

Citizens of Cardiff by rea_p [Reviews - 1]
A collection of (mostly) short stories involving those non-human or non-21st c. citizens of Cardiff who don't cause trouble for Torchwood. The series title is taken from Jack's line in "Everything Changes", when he tells Gwen he's a "citizen" of Cardiff.

Flowers by DameRuth [Reviews - 5]
Love is a strange thing, and can cross a surprising number of barriers: physical, chemical, temporal and mental. If dark!fluff exists, I guess this would be in that genre -- broken glass and candy floss mixed together, as one of the characters thinks. AU, mostly Rose/Jack, Jack/Ianto and Jack/Ten, though not exclusively.
