Another post-"Cyberwoman" fic. I've read many and while most follow... suspension of Ianto, Jack coming to see Ianto during the suspension, Ianto's decision and subsequent return to TW3 post suspension, and so on and so forth. And while I LOVE those fics, I haven't read many that deal with the immediate
aftermath before Jack orders Ianto's suspension - all those feelings of betrayal, anger, despair, etc. In this fic, Ianto is utterly broken and Jack's emotions war between anger at the betrayal and helplessness. As such, this fic is DARK
to a degree (just because Jack can't seem to be able to control his anger), so bear that in mind.
~*~*~*~*~EXCERPT:Jack returned to the cellar to find Ianto still kneeling where he’d left him. The young man looked completely and utterly broken and as Jack strode into the room he didn’t even look up. Jack’s initial anger had melted away leaving him almost empty... Ianto just kept starting at the floor... breath... coming in short ragged, almost painful, gasps. Jack frowned as he noticed how pale Ianto appeared... There were tear tracks visible... cutting through the grime. Jack... had never realised... just how young Ianto really was. But kneeling there, face splashed with the remains... and his clothes soaking up the blood, he looked no more than a boy and Jack suddenly felt... his anger morph into terrible, guilt-ridden understanding... The sight killed Jack. Ianto looked shattered. His eyes, red raw from crying, now gazed blankly at Jack. Jack swallowed then... coldly... indicated to the door, watching detachedly as Ianto stumbled forward, the younger man’s body barely functioning as he obeyed the order.
