Drabble Version



Alone in his flat, Ianto dreams of revenge. He wants the team to pay for killing Lisa, imagines all the ways he can make them suffer.



His thirst for revenge keeps him going for a week. They executed Lisa, and they deserve what’s coming to them.



Except they didn’t, not really. They shot Annie, with Lisa’s brain in her head. By then even Lisa’s brain wasn’t her own. While he’d kept her hidden, she’d lost her battle against the cyber-implants.



Revenge was futile. What the team had killed hadn’t been Lisa but the monster she’d become, and he was glad.



The End




Extended Version



Sitting alone in his dark and empty flat, Ianto dreams of revenge. He wants the whole Torchwood Three team to pay for what they did to Lisa, and he plays out scenarios in his head, imagining all the many ways he can make them suffer.



His thirst for revenge keeps him going for the first week of his suspension. They killed the woman he loved, executed her without mercy, and they deserve what’s coming to them.



Except, of course, they didn’t, not really. They shot Annie, the pizza girl, with Lisa’s brain in her head, and by then even Lisa’s brain wasn’t entirely her own. Somewhere during the long months he’d kept her hidden, his Lisa had lost her battle against the cyber-implants.



Revenge was futile. What the team had killed hadn’t been the woman he’d loved but the monster she’d become, and he was glad that they’d done it.



The End



Comments

What the team had killed hadn’t been the woman he’d loved but the monster she’d become, and he was glad that they’d done it. - Great line!
Thank you! I figured that when Ianto finally accepted that Lisa had really been gone he'd be grateful to the team for doing what he couldn't.
I can understand Ianto feeling like this.

both versions great.
I can understand Ianto feeling like this.

both versions great.
Thank you.

Ianto wanted to hate the team for what they did, but he had to accept the truth in the end.
Oh wow, poor Ianto. But that certainly wasn't Lisa any longer, and it's a good thing he realized it.
Thank you!

Yes, poor Ianto, he wanted to be angry with the team and blame them,but in the end he couldn't hide away from the truth.
Sad story movingly told. Ianto's acceptance that what was killed was no longer Lisa, is the beginning of his healing.
Thank you.

Yes, he had to come to that realisation in his own time, poor Ianto.
I'm sure he felt really relieved in the end ... even if it was difficult to understand and accept!
Yeah, I think so, he just needed to get past the anger.

Thank you!
