Drabble: Indelible

Title: Indelible

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Jack

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto’s memory is too good.

Written For: [personal profile] brewsternorth’s prompt ‘a good memory’ on [community profile] dailyprompt

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Growing up, everyone kept telling Ianto he’d been blessed with a good memory and that he should be grateful. They never seemed to understand that he had no choice but to remember, and no control over what he remembered either.

While other people could block out unpleasant memories, forget the worst moments of their lives, he couldn’t. Everything was indelibly printed on his memory in excruciating detail and the worse the memory, the more clearly he remembered.

He took to filling his head with useless trivia in an effort to block unwanted memories, but nothing worked.

Until he met Jack.

The End


Aww poor Ianto.
A good memory is a mixed blessing. It can be more of a curse. Especially to someone who has experienced as much pain and suffering as Ianto.
At least Jack is there to help him.
Jack is Ianto's cure-all!

Thank you!
Aww poor Ianto. *huggles him*
He needs all the huggles he can get, they make for good memories!

Thank you! *hugs*
Poor Ianto, having to remember everything with no chance to forget.

But then there's Jack. *smiles*
Yeah, Jack is very good at taking Ianto's mind off things ;)

Thank you!
Thank you.

It must be difficult to think of anything but Jack when he's right there, he's very distracting even when he's fully dressed. Imagine how distracting a naked Jsck would be!
Oh, that's poignant.
Thank you.

Ianto has had some tough times, but Jack makes everything better.
Awww...Jack is VERY distracting... *winks*
He is. Just a whiff of those pheromones and it's probably hard to think of anything BUT Jack. Or anything other than Jack's Butt for that matter.

Thank you.
I am glad Jack is able to help him forget the bad things.

Great work.
Thank you.

Jack is very distracting, he can take Ianto's mind off anything.
With Jack around, good memories are sure to outweigh the bad. ;)
True. And how can Ianto think of anything else when Jack is there?

Thank you!
I think eidetic memory is to Ianto as immortality is to Jack, a gift and a curse ...
loved it!
I never though of it that way, but you're right, it must be.

Thank you!
pauvre Ianto.
Earlier for "one hand" I have not added but "fortunately he met ... "
It's the same here
Both have found: safe!
That's true! It was sheer chance that I posted these two one after the other, but in each other, thry found someone who could help them.

Thank you.
