A Good Teacher by Nia River reviews
COMPLETE. The other children in class stared at the teacher. Then they stared at Harry, then back to the teacher, then at Harry, in a never-ending loop. Harry found he couldn't blame them. Everything from the bespectacled emerald eyes to the messy black hair—the resemblance between them was uncanny!

To The Sticking Place by Zephyras reviews
The end justifies the means. Failure is not an option. There is always a choice, except when there isn't. These are the phrases Ianto Jones lives by and he refuses to allow anyone, even Captain Jack Harkness, to change that. Jack/Ianto, AU, TW1 Agent!Ianto.

Quite a List by Gmariam reviews
When Ianto propositioned his boss with a stopwatch, he was really just trying to distract Jack from the second death of one of their own. Jack might have been expecting something else entirely, but he gladly accepted what was offered by the surprising proposal: friendship. Neither of them anticipated just how close that friendship would become before it changed completely.

The Stars Might Stick You Where You Stand by methylethyl reviews
Following the fall of Torchwood One, Jack Harkness went to ask Torchwood Three for a job. He didn't expect to fall a little bit in love with its director, the practical and ever-calm Ianto Jones. He also probably didn't expect that Ianto Jones would end up holding the answers to his most precious secret.

Just a Random Tuesday… by Twisted Biscuit reviews
A VERY long Tuesday in the life of Minerva McGonagall. With rampant Umbridgeitis, uncooperative Slytherins, Ministry interventions, an absent Dumbledore and a schoolwide shortage of Hot Cocoa, it’s a wonder she’s as nice as she is.

Out of vortex reviews
Indiana Jones's son Mutt had been married once. To a welsh woman. How different would Ianto Jones be if he was raised with such an illustrious person as a father?

Asp reviews
They thought everything will be good, better after the second war. But Harry Potter finds out that even with Voldemort dead there are lots of things that need fixing. As new conflicts arise, so does a new hero, who's not a hero at all - Albus Severus Potter. Contains unspeakables, time travel, durmstrang, goblins, peverells, and later main character using plenty of dark magic. Gen.

Prince and beyond
AU. Argus Filch was a 'filthy squib'. However, he was also a con man. And Niccolo Machiavelli's reincarnation. Deatly Hallows, Dumbledore, Grindelwald, Voldemort, Salazar Slytherin, Regulus Black, vampires and werewolves, seers Narcissa Malfoy . Vast liberties with canon.

There was so much more to the tale of three Peverell brothers than anyone thought. How the three hallows were created and how did Harry Potter survive the killing curse for real? Apparently it had something to do with Unspeakables and..sand?
