Drabble: Like A Statue

Title: Like A Statue

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 319 – Stationery/Stationary at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack stands silently on a rooftop after a tough day.

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

Jack stands so still on the rooftop he could be mistaken for a statue if not for the wind stirring his coat. Not that anyone would spot him up there, a slightly darker shadow against the night sky. Ianto can only see him because he knows Jack’s there. He was there too just a short while ago.

He’d been trying to persuade Jack to come down, but the immortal had remained motionless and silent, staring at nothing. Failing to save someone always hit him hard.

Ianto wishes he could do something, anything, other than leave Jack to his lonely vigil.

The End


*Hugs Jack. And Ianto*
Go back up there and sit with him Ianto. You don't need to talk, just be there and let Jack know he's not alone.
He will, he's just going to get some supplies. It might be a long night!

Thank you!
Its Jack's way of grieveing I suppose.

great drabble.
Yes, I think so. Every death hurts him, he never just brushes it off and moves on. Makes me wonder why Gwen thinks Jack lacks humanity.

thank you!
Jack is lucky to have Ianto's support when he needs it, even if it's just sitting silently with him on a roof. His understanding and acceptance would be invaluable to Jack's peace of mind, one of those things that pushy Gwen-the-Mouth would never get.
Precisely! Ianto gives Jack what he needs without demanding or even expecting anything in return. He's just there for Jack, no matter what. Gwen would try tom make it all about her and her needs.

Thank you!
Poor Jack, feeling he has to shoulder everything that goes wrong.
It's the way he is though, he always takes responsibility when things go wrong or they just can't save someone, even when it's not his fault.

Thank you!
This is why Ianto is Jack's real other half. Not Captain John or Gwen. Just being there, Ianto helps him.
Yeah, he's that still, calm presence that soothes.

Thank you!
No doubt Ianto's off to make a huge pot of coffee. *hugs him and Jack*
I'd say you're right. Jack's going to need it!

Thank you!
