Drabble: Eternal Love

Title: Eternal Love

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, the Doctor, Ianto

Rating: G

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

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: A little coda to my fic ‘Fixed Points’

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

A/N: Yesterday was 5 years since THAT day, so I wrote this, to prove to everyone that it was just a bad dream. Prompt used is ‘Last Forever’

Since becoming immortal, Jack had found himself dreading the eternal life that stretched out before him. It had seemed an utterly bleak prospect, filled with nothing but loss and loneliness; he couldn’t imagine anything worse.

He’d taken to trying not to think beyond today; if he had to live forever, perhaps it would be easier to just take it one day at a time.

But now everything had changed. Thanks to the Doctor, he wasn’t the lone immortal; he was one of a pair.

He and Ianto were two halves of a whole, sharing a love that would last forever.

The End


It makes me so sad to think of Jack all alone, eternity stretching out endlessly in front of him. Thank you, this is much better.
Is it really five years since THAT day? Wow. Who would have thought? Still heartbroken over THAT day. My husband had died just before then, so the whole thing still feels like a nightmare I'm praying to wake up from. Too much info, I know, but I'd like to thank you for cheering me with your drabbles and stories and fics of the week, even when I'm so down I can't comment. Thank.you!
Thank you!

I needed to make amends for yesterday's drabble. That one was so bleak and hopeless...
Half a decade gone by! Still in our hearts!!
Thank you for writing and sharing this. :)
You're welcome, and thank you!

It doesn't seem possible, does it? That's a big chunk of time, but Ianto is still in our hearts. I'll keep him alive for all his admirers! And for Jack, of course.
I love the idea of Jack not having to go through eternity alone, and love even more that it's Ianto he gets to spend it with. It makes it so much more perfect that he became immortal by his own choosing, because he wanted to stay with Jack, not because he had no choice, as in Jack's case.

I think everyone should have the choice rather than just getting stuck with something like that. Poor Jack. Still, now he can look forward to the future.

Thank you!
(O.o Five years since CoE? Wow. And to think I've only been in the fandom for three... Time flies!)

THANK YOU for going back to fluff! I approve of this drabble; the Doctor did something right here! XD
You're welcome, and thank you!

I've been in the fandom since the first rumours of a Doctor Who spinoff started circulating. Time really has flown, but I refuse to sccept CoE as canon, therefore it didn't happen and Ianto is alive and well. All my action figures agree.

Luckily I still have two more drabbles written for this prompt, becausxe I didn't get anything written for Torchwood today.
Which is just the way it should be.
That's what I thought!

Thank you!
YAY!!!!! they are together forever!I can't believe five years had gone by since that day .....
Luckily we have YOU who corrects the mistakes that "The One Who should Never Be Mentioned" made.
I try to do my part in erasing that unforgivable mistake. It's hard to believe it's been 5 years, it seems like only yesterday that Ianto was on our screens, being snarky and awesome. Now he lives on in the written word, and always will.

Thank you!
This is beautiful, I am so happy for Jack and Ianto
Thank you! They're pretty happy for themselves too =D
This is how it really happened.
Of course it is! All Jacks and Iantos live happily ever after!

(I've just welcomed my fourth Ianto, so Coat Jack has a Ianto now! This one was used and is a teeny bit battered.)

Thank you!

Aww! Yes, that's how it REALLY happened! Everything else was just a bad dream ^_^
Exactly! That's what Jack gets for eating cheese at bedtime!

Thank you!

Lovely and the Doctor made good amends to Jack. :D
When the Doctor gets something right, he does a proper job of it!

Thank you!

Thank you! It's the way they should be!
