This one was surprisingly easy, actually.

This is from a piece of Torchwood fic, and is the best explanation I have ever seen for why the Doctor feels as he does about both weapons and "spoilers".

"If you've got a gun in your hand, you have only two choices. Fire? Or not? Weapons are like that. They narrow things down. There are other options, Ianto. A whole world of possibilities in every moment. It's like telling Jack about all this, giving away spoilers. If he knew, he'd be trapped, a prisoner. Down to only two choices every time -- going along with it, or trying desperately not to. Doesn't that seem small to you? Wouldn't it ruin it all?"

Most really common fanfic tropes (such as, for example, the blanket scenario) I have a tag for in my delicious bookmarks, but 'amnesia' is one that I don't, so I had to spend quite some time scrolling through looking for fics that I thought I remembered the issue arising in. I had initially planned on using one of the (legion) Doctor Who fics that added Rose to the events of Human Nature, since memory loss is a plot element in almost all of them, but I eventually decided against.

This fic is A Theory of Two Centers by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller, one of the first Torchwood fics I ever read, actually. Manages to be both in character and very sweet, as well as plotty. I read this fic way before I had actually finished watching the series, and it's the fic that first made the Jack/Ianto pairing seem plausible to me as a relationship, rather than just a casual sex thing. Altogether excellent.

Hrm. Looking at that prompt, two fics leap immediately and clearly into my mind, and I find I just can't choose between them. Given that I had four fics in my "all time favorite" list, I suppose I can allow myself two here. Both slash, but I think that's because well-nigh every fandom where I ship something het is either *incredibly* fluffy (I'm looking at you, Rose and The Doctor) or something I was more into a few years back, otherwise known as "where where those links again?", so, yeah.
