Drabble: One Good Reason

Title: One Good Reason

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Spoilers: End of Days, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Summary: A sort of sequel to ‘A New Dream’ Jack returns home and seeks Ianto’s forgiveness.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Just Give Me A Reason’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Jack knew that despite Ianto agreeing to a date, the Welshman was still angry with him for leaving without a word.

“I’m sorry, Ianto. If I could do things over, I’d make sure I left a message so you’d know I would be back. I’d just waited so long; I couldn’t miss the chance. I didn’t know if I’d ever get another one.”

“I understand that, Jack. I do. But it doesn’t change the fact that you abandoned us. Abandoned me. Just give me one good reason why I should forgive you.”

“Because I love you.”

It was reason enough.

The End


Yes, that is a good reason. *happy sigh*
*grins* It really is about time Jack figured it out, isn't it?

Thank you!
That's the best reason anyways! ;)
Ianto certainly thinks it's a valid reason!

Thank you!
wow that was a hell of good reason!
Ianto is satisfied with it, and happy to forgive Jack, now that Jack has obviously comed to his senses ;)

Thank you!
Love is definitely enough to forgive him, Loved this.
Thank you, glad it worked for you!
Works for me! :) Ianto probably thought he'd never hear Jack say it, so it must have had a powerful effect indeed.
Oh yeah! Three little words can change everything!

Thank you!
Nice! Now Jack needs to open up as to WHY he really left and what happened. That would give Ianto all the more reason to stay with him.
He will do that (he might already have in one of my other drabbles, I've kind of lost track of what I've written, lol!), Ianto will find out what happened to Jack as soon as Jack feels able to talk about it. It was very traumatic for him, after all!

Thank you!
Aww, bless him!
That is a very good reason!
Ianto's in agreement, he thinks it's the best reason!

Thank you!
If only he'd said that from the start. Would've saved a whole lot of heartache.

I think he had to leave to learn where he really belongs, but it would have been nice if he could have done it without causing heartache and getting tortured for a year.

Thank you.
very good reason
The best reason there is!

Thank you!
