Drabble: Moving On

Title: Moving On

Author: badly_knitted

Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto. Mentions Gwen/Rhys, Tosh/Owen, OCs

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 313 – Open at tw100. Prompt used is Challenge 81: Life After Torchwood.

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: It’s time for Jack and Ianto to move on with their own lives.

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

A/N: My eighth drabble for this prompt.

Today was the day. Jack and Ianto stood together, looking across the Hub one last time.

The new team was fully trained, confident in their abilities. Their leader had earned their trust, loyalty and respect. She would do a fine job of policing the Rift and protecting Cardiff’s residents.

There was nothing left for them to do.

Gwen and Rhys had left years ago to raise their family.

Tosh and Owen followed a few years later.

Now it was time for Jack and Ianto to discover their own life after Torchwood.

This wasn’t the end; it was just the beginning.

The End


Aww! It's good to know there's a happy ending for all of them! I wonder if Jack and Ianto will have children...?
Maybe they already do have children, I'm not sure if this is in my universe where they have a daughter or not, but they ARE both immortal, so there's plenty of time for having a family if it's not, lol!

Thank you!
awww how sweet
Thank you! Glad you liked it!

(We're level on eight, are you going to try to carry on until the new challenge? I know I am! One more and we'll be in the lead.)
I wish Torchwood had ended like this.

great drabble.
Thank you!

Yes, it would have been a great ending, setting things up for the spin-off about Jack & Ianto's adventures out in space!
YAY! a happy ending for all of them!
Who is the mysterious she in charge of TW 3 now?
Loved it!
A character I haven't invented yet, lol! I might invent her if I find I need to go into this particular timeline at a later date, but I have no fixed ideas about her yet. I just decided a woman should take over.

Thank you, i wanted to give them all happy lives.
This is wonderful. I love the idea of Jack and Ianto retiring to finally live their own lives.
They deserved it, so I arranged it. In my head, this is st in the Curry Club universe, so Ianto is immortal and they're just about to set out on their adventures =)

Thank you!

This was so awesome it gave me chills :)
*grins* Thank you so much!

I always enjoy giving the team a hasppy future =)
Beautiful. This has the same ring as your Library and Jack's Eyes stories. I hope they both decided to leave Earth and travel somewhere for a little while just for downtime...
I'm thinking this is part of the Curry Club 'verse, so they're off to explore the universe with regular trips back to earth to catch up with their friends. The Doctor gives them a lift back a couple of times a year.

Thank you!
Aw, beautiful! This is the ending we all would've loved. <3
It's the ending they deserved, so I wrote it for them =)

Thank you!
I always love stories where everyone lives!
So do I, that's why I write 'em!

Thank you!
I am glad to see them step from Torchwod and allow a new generation to take the lead.
The time has come for everyone to strike out on their own. They deserved more of a life, so now they can have it!

Thank you!
Love it! I'm hoping you'll write more about Jack and Ianto after Torchwood.
There will be more at some point, it depends on where my mind goes with drabble prompts and on what plot bunnies come along. at the moment I'm swamped with other ideas, but I do intend to write more.

Thank you!
Sweet :-)
They get to enjoy their retirement together :-)
They'll be out there on other worlds, saving the day beforte long I'm sure. Neither of them knows how to be retired, lol!

Thank you!
yeah!!!! it's great.
they will finally be able to live their lives.
but they are likely to get bored? unless they meet the Doctor. Or they have a space ship at them.
it is true that Jack has the experience of time. he knows how to deal and with Ianto it will be even better.

and Nosy? he died? as it is an alien, I think that may be Nosy has very long life expectancy.
I think this one probably isn't in the Nosy-verse, things in that 'Verse will happen differently. You're right though, Nosy (and all Fluffs) are very long-lived, so it would still have been alive

I see this one as being set just before Ianto and Jack leave earth for a life out among the stars. They'll probably travel with the Doctor for a bit before getting their own spaceship, they won't have time to get bored, they'll be far too busy!

Thank you!
