Drabble: The Library Of Lives

Title: The Library Of Lives

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 309 – The Library at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Perhaps there’s a library where everyone’s life is written down…

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

A/N: This is a bit of a weird one.

Ianto scanned the vast, cavernous room; he was in an immense library. Shelves upon shelves of books stretched before and behind him, fading into distance; to each side were yet more. He’d never felt so insignificant. How would he ever find what he was seeking?

Checking the nearest shelf, he started walking. The books were in alphabetical order, one for every human who ever had or would exist. At least he was in the right section.

After walking for miles he found Jack’s life, shelves of books beyond number and beside them his own, equally numerous.

Smiling, reassured, he awoke.

The End


Wonderful imagery. Simply delightful!
Thank you!

I wanted Ianto to see his future with Jack as being never-ending.
Oh wow, I loved this image! All those books of his and Jack's lives, going on side by side...that is just awesome.
Thank you!

They deserve to be together forever, so they will be =)
Wonderfully done! Janto approved most deffinently! I liked it a lot. It's very sweet. Thank you and as always well done!
Thank you, I though the universe should let Ianto know that he and Jack are forever =)
I disagree with only one tiny thing: this one is not weird.

It's as it should be for Jack and Ianto and a wonderful 'dream' reality of eternity for them... your best 'library' prompt!
Thank you! *hugs*

It just went in a really strange direction, I'm not sure where it came from, but I like that Ianto should get reassurance through a dream that he will always be at Jack's side.
awwww a never-ending story!
love the image of their books together and being so many for both of them!
I like to think it's the universe's way of reassuring Ianto that everything will turn out right.

Thank you!
Beautiful, just beautiful. <3
*smiles* Thank you!

They should be side by side forever, the universe will make it happen =)
This is really lovely.
Thank you!

It's the way their lives should be, together forever =)
That is how it should be.
It really is, they belong together =)

Thank you!
Aww I like how the dream reassured him :-)
The Universe works in mysterious ways, now Ianto feels sure that everything will be alright.

Thank you!
Interesting idea! I wonder what would happen if someone would read his own book and try to change his fate...
I don't know. I suspect if you picked up your own book, the last thing in it would be you picking up your book and opening it, lol! I think that's what happens in Terry Pratchett's Discworld books - as someone pointed out, Death has a library like this one!
Now that's a nice dream! Something I would like to dream, too :)
Ianto certainly enjoyed it, now he knows he'll be around for Jack for a long, long time =)

Thank you!
beautiful image!!!
it's à good deam.
A very good dream, Ianto has faith for the future!

Thank you!
What lovely imagery! And how reassuring for Ianto. <3<3
It gave him a hint of what was to come, without him really knowing that it was a kind of premonition =)

Thank you!
