Drabble: Camping

Title: Camping

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Lisa and Annie the pizza girl.

Rating: G

Spoilers: Cyberwoman.

Summary: Lisa had loved camping.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Happy Camping’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 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.

Ianto had never liked camping, but Lisa loved it. Every weekend they had off from Torchwood, she’d load the tent in her car and drag him to a campsite somewhere. He always went along without complaint because he loved her and wanted to make her happy. If that meant doing something he disliked, it was a sacrifice he was willing to make.

As Annie spoke of his and Lisa’s last camping trip, Ianto’s heart ached at the memories her words evoked. He wished he could take Lisa camping one more time. Even though he’d hated it, he’d never been happier.

The End


so sad but so true! the things we do for love!
But true love is worth making such sacrifices for.

Thank you!
Poor Ianto...
I know!

*pets Ianto* Jack will make him smile again! eventually.

Thank you!
Only at Torchwood could you have a person with your dead girlfriend's brain in her head remind you of one of her favorite past-times.
We should probably be thankful we don't work there because the level of creepy is off the scale!

Thank you!
Poor Ianto you could see just how much those words affected him.

great drabble.
They must have been like knives to his heart =(

Thank you.
This episode was on yesterday here in NY and it was just as hard to watch now as it was when it first premiered. Ianto's emotional agony was painful to watch. At least he had Jack's empathy to get him thru it...
Yeah, it's a tough episode. Poor Ianto really goes through the mill.

He'll be okay in the end though.

Thank you!
Wibble... *hugs Ianto tight*
Ianto appreciates the hugs.

Thank you!
The last line is perfect. That is true love.
Ianto really would have done anything for Lisa - he proved that over and over.

Thank you!
