Drabble: Trust Me

Title: Trust Me

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack’s powers of persuasion win again…

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

A/N: For 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. Prompt at the end.

Jack grinned at Ianto, eyes sparkling.

“Are you ready for this?”

Ianto tightened his grip.

“Probably not,” he replied, caught somewhere between wild excitement and abject terror, “but let’s do it anyway, before I change my mind!”

“Trust me, you’re gonna love it!”

“I’ve heard that before.”

As one they started to run down the slope, matching stride for stride, until suddenly, between one stride and the next, they were swooping smoothly upwards, the hillside receding beneath them. Ianto almost forgot to breathe; they were flying and the view was breathtaking!

Jack was right; he was going to love hang-gliding!

The End

A/N: Prompt was ‘Here We Go Into The Wild Blue Yonder’


I would love to hang-glide.

great drabble.
I would too, if I wasn't scared of heights, lol!

Thank you!
I did bungee-jumping on my honeymoonn in Mexico!
Way to go, Ianto!!!!
Ianto is braver than me! You'd never get me hang gliding! (Or bungee jumping!)

Thank you!
Now that sounds like fun! And Jack really loves all sorts of flying. :)
That's what I thought, and he'd want to share his love of flying with Ianto =)

Thank you!
I'd have a death grip on that thing! Go Ianto! Love these little moments in time for them :D
No way I'd ever try hang gliding, but I bet if you're not scared of heights it would be an amazing experience!

Thank you!
I had enough heights at the Twin Towers' restaurant The elevator doors opened and my knees locked up so fast I almost fell out the door. It was a seriously disorienting experience that left me feeling like I'd fall over the side if I got out. Jack can have his hang gliding and you are a genius with this little drabble :D
At least Jack and Ianto are enjoying it.

You'd never have got me in the elevator in the first place, I hate enclosed spaces as much as I hate heights, lol!
They finished their new Tower but there's no way in hell I'll take a job in it. It isn't money; there's just ... SOMETHING... I can't put my finger on but I refuse to go in that area. I don't need to see the site; you can still feel the psychic confusion and emotions from that day if your sensitive enough to it. The last job I was in down there, I kept having flashbacks (on 47th floor). I'm just glad I wasn't there; they had a horrific view! It sets off my claustophobia even more.
I can imagine. I wouldn't want to work in the new tower, too many lives were lost where it stands, that has to have left something behind.
It's funny; you'll still have people saying its been long enough for those who were there or near there to 'get over it' but that's not something you can do easily. I avoided the first bombing by a few months when my assignment ended for the first rotation; I was on the third rotation and I cut it short after they put me on the 79th floor in the North Tower. I couldn't deal with that height and I was even more uncomfortable than before. I guess I could say I shamed my Mohawk heritage since we're supposed to be good at heights but as I told my son's Commanding Officer to tell him: "dis azz intack; dis azz was NOT down dere!" I honestly don't understand why people need to see that site, but I don't condemn them. It does provide perspective.
I think in some cases it's a matter of paying respect. They can't do anything for the people who died there, but NOT visiting the site feels like... I don't know, like they're ignoring what happened there. Just going, seeing the place, maybe saying a brief prayer for the lives that were lost... maybe it helps them accept the reality of the tragedy, it's not just something seen on the news anymore.
I look at it like that, the respect, prayers and I think in small ways it helps. It's a reality that definitely crashes onto one when you see the size of the site. I would even think that after all this time, I'd be more comfortable with it but I avoid the area when possible...
I don't think it's something anyone who was affected in any way is ever going to completely get over. It was too big, too devastating, too world-altering to ever just push aside. Like people who lived through WWII, the memories and experiences never go away. To an extent you learn to live with them, but such things make you see everything differently. That's only natural.
I am on Ianto's side.
I'd be too scared to try it, but he's brave and he likes it now!

Thank you!
It does sound fun! Definitely one for my 'bucket list'
I'm too scared of heights to even contemplate it, even though it would be amazing...

Thank you!
