Drabble: White Dress Blues

Title: White Dress Blues
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, mentions Gwen, Tosh, Owen and Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 367: Dress/Undress at tw100
Spoilers: Something Blue.
Summary: What’s going through Ianto’s mind as he picks out a replacement wedding dress for Gwen?
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Holding up the wedding dress in front of a mirror so he could better judge the length, Ianto wondered how he’d let himself get roped into picking out Gwen’s replacement dress. Although, who else was there really? Tosh had excellent taste, but she didn’t have his practiced eye for estimating sizes, and the idea of either Jack or Owen dress shopping… He shuddered.

Not so long ago, he’d thought it would be him and Lisa getting married, talking about wedding dresses, guests, flowers… She would’ve looked so beautiful.

The shop assistant’s interruption was an almost welcome distraction from his thoughts.

The End


Oh, what a bitter sweet moment. Some dreams are harder to leave behind than others. Poor Ianto is always so stoic that we sometimes forget what he has been through and how much he lost. Thanks for sharing :D
Thank you.

Yes, he's so reserved, he keeps it all inside, but that doesn't mean he forgets.
I remember that scene as a funny moment. I love the way you turned it around and made me think.
Thank you! I like looking at what might have been going through the characters' heads during various scenes. Sometimes the results can be quite unexpected =)
A bitter sweet moment but I would not trust anyone else for that task.
Me neither, it just bought up old dreams for Ianto.

Thank you!
It couldnt have been easy for Ianto but he did pick out the perfect dress.
Ianto has very good taste.

Thank you!

Yeah, I always thought this scene was painful for many reasons.
But brave Ianto never let on.

Thank you.
The scene of the series was funny, yet glad that Jack did not accompany !!
This would become epic.
But it's true that I had forgotten Lisa ... Bitter sweet memories. But he Jack to comfort him.
I think most of the team have probably forgotten about Lisa too. Poor Ianto will never forget.

Thank you!
