Drabble: Historic Moment

Title: Historic Moment

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 318 – Long Overdue at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: It’s a day that will go down in history.

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

A/N: I’m not too sure if this one really works, but I did the best I could with the idea I had.







Jack and Ianto sprawled on their sofa, eating dinner while watching the evening news, something they seldom got to do; it made a pleasant change. Not that the news was universally good or anything, but still…



“This is an historic day,” Jack told Ianto. “Someday we’ll tell our grandkids exactly where we were when we first heard the news.”



“What are you talking about?”



Jack gestured at the TV as the newscaster announced the vote had been passed to allow same sex couples to marry.



“Finally! This is the day that marks humanity’s first step towards long overdue full equality.”



The End

Comments

It was really a very good day 😊
A very good day indeed! It bodes well for the future.

Thank you!
And now Jack needs to whip out a ring and propose!
He really should, lol! He knew the exact date it would happen, so he would be prepared to take advantage!

I was originally going to end it like that, but I reached the word limit before I got there.

Thank you!
Lovely Drabble.
Thank you! It didn't quite go the way I wanted, but still...
That's one of those landmark moments a person never forgets. It's fitting they were together when the news came out.

I think it says a lot about you as an author that the things you write that "didn't quite go the way I wanted" turn out better than some that are exactly what the author was going for. Nice job.
Thank you!

Jack, I believe, already knew the date the news would be announced, coming from the future as he does - it's a historical event in the future, one they learn about in school - so he managed to arrange that they would be in a good place to hear it! ;)
Happy thoughts of the wee ones listening to their grandparents.
They are looking forward to that day!

Thank you!
So many states here are passing the marriage equality laws but judges are also issuing stays so those states where the fight is going on can appeal. Just pass the damn law and stop playing! Hypocrisy is running so many state governments and the arguments against marriage equality simply don't hold water. Frankly, some gay relationships are far more stable and loving than the protesting majority's.

Jack, where's the ring and set the date!
I know, it's sickening to see how governments give in to the bigots. Just pass the damn law and order the bigots to toe the line and accept progress!

Sadly, I didn't have enough words for the proposal, which I'd originally intended to end the drabble with. Jack did propose though, and Ianto said yes.
YAY!!! Now let's get the boys formally married and a honeymoon in the stars :D I know you've got a good wedding and honeymoon destination in you... :D
I just need to find time to write, which I just don't seem to be getting at the moment. *sigh* Eventually they'll get there.
Maybe you just need a short break; don't fight it. Your muse will find itself the energy to come back and tap you on the shoulder again ;D. In the meantime, I'm getting ready to finish some pieces and put them in my deviantart account. When they're done, I'd like your opinion.
The muse is there, I'm just physically tired, not feeling all that well, and so busy with life I don't have the time I want to sit down and work on longer pieces. I'm having to satisfy my need to write with drabbles and short pieces for fan_flashworks - though I did manage a silly 1600 word FAKE fic, inspired by all the Torchwood fics with drunk/drugged Ianto, so it's partly your fault, lol!

Oooh, looking forward to seeing what you've been up to, drop me links when you've posted. I'm not on deviantart so I can't comment there, but I can PM you on LJ.
Me?! Wait! What did I ...w here did I get you in trouble with drunk/drugged Ianto! Jack did that :D :D

I finished one piece last night but need more supplies for this next one; it will be the most unusual one yet. I'm mixing white freshwater pearls, hematite, sterling silver and vermeil in one piece. It's just a matter of getting the 'kids' to cooperate.... I'm also at apachegrl@gmail.
*giggles* Jack is a troublemaker!

Oh, that sounds gorgeous! I'm sure you'll get it to work!
I can imagine how giddy Jack gets when he witnesses a historic day he likely read about when he was a kid. And that was one heck of a day. :)
Exactly! And Jack made sure they were in the right place to hear the news as it was announced. He waited a long time for that special day!

Thank you!
yes!
A very great day!

Thank you!
It was a fantastic day!
There's still a long way to go, but it was a giant step.
I hope I'm going to find a sequel shortly where Jack proposes. (or maybe Ianto does)?
I can't remember now whether I did or not... *scratches head* Let me know if you g=find one! I've completely lost track of what I've written and what I've just thought about writing. o_O

I live in hope that we'll get there!
