Drabble: The Loser

Title: The Loser

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: John Hart, mentions Jack, Ianto, team

Rating: G

Spoilers: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Exit Wounds compliant.

Summary: John wanted to win Jack back, but he just drove his former lover further away. He only has himself to blame.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘When I Was Your Man’, 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.







John kept hidden, watching the ragged remains of Jack’s team lay their friends to rest.



He was mostly to blame for their losses. He’d let himself get conned, all because he’d wanted to return Jack’s lost brother to him; maybe win Jack back in the process. By the time he’d realised he was being played, he was trapped, a bomb bonded to his arm, compelled to help Gray carry out his insane vendetta.



Once upon a time, Jack would’ve turned to John for comfort; now Eye Candy had taken his place.



There was nothing left for him here.



He’d lost.



The End


Comments

I think Gray is probably so twisted that he hid his hatred for Jack until he had John right where he wanted him.

Hart is completely obsessed with Jack to the point that I don't think he really loves Jack in the way most people would define love. He just wants back what he considers to be his. Still, he thought he was doing a good thing for Jack and I do believe he feels bad for what happened as a result, even if it's just because the whole carefully thought-out plan went so wrong.

Thank you.
