Title: Another Birthday

Author: badly_knitted

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 400: Milestone at tw100

Summary: Celebrating his birthday always makes Jack think about the past.

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

Another birthday, another milestone reached; it was bittersweet. Memories filled Jack’s mind of places he’d lived, and of people he’d known and loved over the course of his long life. The world had changed so much since he’d first arrived on earth more than four centuries earlier and he knew he’d seen more history than any human alive, but the personal cost was higher than anyone should have to pay.

“You’re brooding again,” a familiar voice commented.

Jack turned to smile at Ianto. “Not brooding; remembering old friends. It’s the only way they can be here to celebrate with us.”

The End


Jack is both blessed and cursed that he can remember such things. It must make each one that much harder.
But however hard it is, I'm sure he'd rather remember them than forget. They live on in his and Ianto's memories.

Thank you!

At least he's got someone to remember them with. That surely makes it just a little bit easier.

I think it would, he and Ianto can share reminiscences of those they both knew and be there to listen to tales of those from their pasts before they met.

Thank you.
This was bittersweet.

great drabble.
Thank you, that's what I was aiming for. Jack has Ianto, but he can't save everyone he cares about. It has to be so hard for him.
Jack has so much to remember and Ianto helps him enjoy the memories
I'm sure it works the other way around as well. they can reminisce together.

Thank you!

with Ianto and Jack, others are not forgotten !! They will exist as long as these 2 will be there!
True, the boys will keep them alive in their memories.

Thank you.
