Title: The Note

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100

Summary: At least Ianto left a note…

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

A/N: Prompt at the end.

Jack plucked the note from his desk; it was from Ianto.


The Doctor invited me to go travelling with him.


Sitting down heavily, Jack felt lost. Ianto had left? Well, why wouldn’t he? Hadn’t Jack done the same not long ago? At least Ianto left a note. Jack’s heart plummeted; would he ever return?

He was still sitting there staring at nothing when a mug of coffee appeared in front of him. There stood Ianto, looking exactly the same.

“Ianto! You’re back!”

“I never left.”

“But the note…”

“He asked. I refused. Now you know how I felt.”

The End

A/N2: Title used was ‘Now We’re Even’


Oh, snap!

I had to. (I have three others written, but...)

Thank you!
A very good lesson, Ianto is smart!!!
Loved it!!!
Sometimes a practical demonstration gets the message across better than words alone!

Thank you! *hugs*
Oh, touche' Ianto.
Now Jack understands!

Thank you!
Sometimes the best way to learn is the hard way!
I'm sure Jack understood it!!
It was a very effective lesson!

Thank you!
Oh dear, I really thought Ianto had gone! Thank God he didn't!
And he certainly taught Jack a lesson ^_^
Ianto thought a practical demonstration would get his point across better than just words. Jack got the message loud and clear. (Ianto would never really leave though, he'd miss Jack too much.)
Well now Jack has no doubt how Ianto feels about him.

great story.
And now Jack knows how Ianto felt when Jack just disappeared off with the Doctor.

Thank you!
Ouch! Jack deserved that. I'm glad Ianto didn't go!
He couldn't go, he would have missed Jack too much. He just wanted Jack to understand how he'd felt when Jack just disappeared with no warning. Jack won't do it again.

Thank you!
Oh day-am!!! WOW!!! Now THAT's using a prompt with authority and a lead pipe effect!
*bows* Thank you!

Ianto really knows how to get his point across.
Karma is a real B sometimes.
Practical demonstrations are more effective with Jack than words, lol!

Thank you!
Wonderful twist!
Thank you!

It seemed like a Ianto thing to do, teaching Jack a lesson about how it feels for your lover to up anm leave with no warning and no explanation. Jack won't leave like that again, and he'll be more appreciative of Ianto knowing his lover COULD have left, but didn't.
Thank you! This was an idea that was originally meant to be part of the Drone series, but the ending of that went in a different direction so I couldn't use it. Then I was browsing the Reverse Fandom episode titles and I found one that would work!

Have you picked one for a drabble yet? I know you have trouble choosing when faced with multiple prompts.
I honestly haven't even looked at them yet!
I have been too busy. I was away at the weekend, which is normally my catch up time. I have just spent this evening catching up with reading and commenting. I have also just had an idea for another bingo prompt which I am trying to write my first draft of before I forget what I wanted to say. I will try to write something for tw100 in the next hour or two. (Although I just remembered as I wrote this hat this prompt is going to run for at least two weeks, so the deadline isn't as critical - phew!)
Is it? I hadn't realised that! YAY! There are lots more that I'd like to have a go at! I have two more done, so I'll try to write a couple more tomorrow.

Good luck with the bingo fic!
Ouch! But Jack deserved it. ;)
And now he understands better. The thought of being without his Ianto for an unknown length of time just broke Jack's heart. He was extra nice to Ianto that night, really showing him how much he means to Jack.

Thank you!
Now Jack understands Ianto better. ianto would never really leave though.

Thank you!
