A/N: A second fill for the square Curtain/Purple

The sky was a bruised purple colour, indicating an approaching storm. Ianto threw back the curtains and stared out gloomily. The weather suited his mood.

He wished he could just go back to bed and hide from the world but that wasn’t an option. Since Jack disappeared, it was all hands on deck. Besides, the others couldn’t be trusted to clean up after themselves and no one else would think to feed Myfanwy and Janet.

He missed Jack.

With a heavy sigh he opened his wardrobe to select a suit. Time to don his armour for another day of work.

The End


Poor Ianto. What a terrible roller-coaster he was on with Jack at this time. First grief over Jack's "death", then elation when Jack revives and kisses him, and then *bam*, Jack's run off. No wonder Ianto doesn't want to get up and go to work anymore. He has only his sense of duty to fall back on.

Don't worry Ianto, it will get better!

Lovely job. :)
It's a difficult time for him. Like you say, there's the whole emotional rollercoaster aspect, but his workload has also doubled, so he's physically worn out too. He still has to do all his regular duties, but now he has to go into the field, which takes time away from his work in the Hub. He's probably also shouldering the bulk of Jack's job while Gwen pretends to be the leader. I can't see her doing Jack's paperwork or fielding phonecalls from other agencies and the government, she probably thinks that's the secretary's job anyway.

Thank you.
