Drabble: Raining Tears

Title: Raining Tears

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Lisa

Rating: G

Spoilers: Slight for Cyberwoman.

Summary: Ianto watches the rain through the window and mourns Lisa.

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

A/N: For red_day_dawning’s prompt ‘Rain against the window’

Sitting by the window, Ianto watched raindrops chasing each other down the windowpane, the way he used to as a child on rainy days when he wasn’t allowed outside.

The weather matched his mood; it seemed like the sky was crying, grieving for Lisa too. He’d cried for her until he had no tears left, just a hollow emptiness inside him where his heart had been.

He’d vowed to save her, but he’d failed.

A traitorous little voice in the corner of his mind whispered that there hadn’t been anything left of Lisa to save.

He wished it was lying.

The End


Thank you! I seem to have written quite a few drabbles set around Cyberwoman, it's one of the most fanficced episodes. I love the wide variety of different fics it has inspired.

Also, thank you for the birthday wishes!

poor Ianto, can I give him a hug?
So sad but beautifully written, as usual !

I'm sure Ianto would appreciate a hug!

Thank you, I'm glad you think so. I'm trying to space the sad ones out so I'll post something more cheerful tomorrow.
I feel like the sky is crying with me sometimes, too. Beautiful drabble.
I think we all feel that way at times *hugs*

Thank you!
So heartbreaking poor Ianto *hugs him*

Great drabble.
Thank you! Ianto needs lots of hugs.
Poor Ianto. Maybe he can come over to my house and we can, uh, console each other.
I wish I could send him to you, you'd probably do each other good. Of course, Jack might be a bit miffed...

Thank you!
Oh hell, send him too!
Double the fun with both of them!
*hugs Ianto tight* :(
Ianto says thank you, he needs lots of hugs.

Thank you.
Oh, this was sad. Poor Ianto, there really wasn't anything left of Lisa. :(
Thank you.

He understands that now, but accepting it is difficult, it means everything he did, everything he went through, was for nothing and that's a hard burden to carry.
I feel so sorry for Ianto. I suspect that if it had been anyone else, Ianto would have been executed or retconned to an inch of his life but the fact that Jack knew and understood just made it easier for Ianto to later accept comfort from him. I feel for Lisa, too; no one at Canary Wharf deserved what happened to them, least of all her.

You really caught his mood so well...
Thank you.

Yeah, Lisa was a victim, just like everyone else at Canary Wharf. What rampaged through the Hub wasn't Lisa. Ianto is slowly coming to terms with that.

Jack understands losing someone you love and doing whatever you can to try and save them. He's also nearly destroyed the world himself, and for a far less noble reason, so he's more willing to give Ianto another chance.

Thank you.
Yes, sorry =(

Not all the prompts I've got are inspiring happy drabbles, there are a number of sad ones to come. I'll space them out though.

Thank you.
It's sad but true
It is, and Ianto will accept the truth given time.

Thank you!
