Part 1

Ianto’s ears were ringing, like someone was banging a gong inside his head. He really wished they’d stop. Then he heard an even less welcome sound: his sister’s voice.

“What the hell did you do to my baby brother, Harkness?”

“Nothing! I swear this wasn’t my fault!”

Cracking open both eyes, wincing at the brightness of the lights in the treatment area, Ianto squinted past the nurse who was stitching the wound in his side, where a shard of glass from a broken bottle had sliced into him. Never had he been so glad to have developed a spare tyre from eating the cookies and cakes Jack was forever baking; the extra padding had saved him from more serious injury.

Jack was backed up against a wall, hands raised in surrender as Rhiannon prodded him repeatedly in the chest with a stiff finger. He was a good six inches taller than Rhi, and a great deal stronger; he could take down a bull Weevil without flinching, but right at that moment Jack looked terrified. Ianto didn’t blame him; Rhiannon in protective big sister mode was daunting.

“Wasn’t his fault, Rhi,” Ianto mumbled. “Tripped over a cat.”

Yep, typical Torchwood accident.

The End


I do wish that Rhi would give Ianto credit for being the brave competent MAN he is. Being worried is one thing, but in many fics she infantalises him.
In this 'verse she doesn't know Ianto is Torchwood, she just knows he and Jack are together, and she's a typical protective older sister. She's at least 8 years older and I think she sometimes sees him as one of her kids, she might have been the one looking after him much of the time as she grew up, plus seeing someone you love hurt, logic goes out the window. She'll feel embarrassed later for overreacting.

Thank you!
