----
* Within ''{{Series/Torchwood}}'' fandom, a truly mind-boggling number of Jack/Ianto {{Hurt Comfort Fic}}s involve the characters showering together--often not even romantically, but simply because one or the other is hurt and needs help, or is untrustworthy and has to be watched.
* It seems as if there is no one who ''hasn't'' written the "Countrycide" follow up fic.
* There's rarely a fic where [[RonTheDeathEater Gwen]] [[DieForOurShip doesn't get bashed]] in some shape or form.
* Lots of {{Fix Fic}}s were written after ''[[Series/TorchwoodChildrenOfEarth Children of Earth]]'', either changing the end so Ianto (and occasionally Steven) doesn't die, or bringing him/them back to life somehow. TimeTravel is sometimes involved.
* An abnormally high number of [=Torchwood/Anything Else=] fics involve a [=Jack/Ianto/Other Universe character=]. Especially if the other universe is ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.
* Torchwood crossovers with the {{Buffyverse}} actually have their own fandom specific plots.
** Buffy either joins Torchwood and has a falling out with the Scoobies or has a falling out with the Scoobies and then joins Torchwood.
** Everyone from the Buffyverse practically worships Ianto's coffee.
** If it's a Buffy joins Torchwood fic, she and Jack butting heads over stuff, mainly her tendency to want to be in charge.
** Spike will always get mistaken for John, and vice versa, often leading to someone getting attacked.
** Dawn ships Jack/Ianto.
** Torchwood calls bullshit on demons, the Scoobies on aliens.
** The plot always happens pre-Zombie Owen.
