Drabble: Another Chance


Title: Another Chance

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack. Mentions Ianto, the Doctor, the Master.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 267 – Starting Over at tw100

Spoilers: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Doctor Who The Sound of Drums and Last of the Time Lords.

Summary: After a year of torture, there’s only one thing Jack wants.

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



Jack knew he’d hurt Ianto badly, leaving the way he had, but he’d only expected to be gone a few hours, maybe a day.


Instead it had been months for Ianto, and over a year for himself. Not a good year, either. The Master tortured him relentlessly at first, but eventually grew bored and ignored the Freak for weeks at a time.


There’d been ample time for Jack to think about what he’d do if the Doctor’s plan worked, but as time passed he’d realised there was only one thing he really wanted: the chance to start over with Ianto.


The End


Poor Jack! The thoughts of how he left things with Ianto must have been torture all on its own. But the realization of what he wanted gave him the drive to endure, and in the end he got his chance. :)

Nicely done!

It's not the fluff I was hoping to write, but at least it's more hopeful than the last one.

And yes, Jack made it home and managed to grovel enough to get a second chance with Ianto. In my mind, it was the best decision either of them ever made and they lived happily and smuttily ever after.
Ianto was pretty eager to say "yes" to Jack's offer of a date--I'm guessing Jack didn't have to grovel too much. ;)
Well, he was flustered when Jack asked, who knows how much grovelling Jack had to do later?

Yeah, probably not that much, lol!
beautiful! and I am sure that that thought was what kept him alive and sane!
Thank you. I think so too. Jack made many plans in his head and they were all about what he and Ianto would do when they were together again. The dates they would go on, the restaurants they would eat at, the evenings they'd spend together in front of the TV...
Yeah. Sweet drabble.
Thank you =)

Jack spent a lot of time thinking about Ianto, so now he has plenty of ideas on how to make amends. Ianto is going to be treated really well!
Poor Jack...and it's sad that it sometimes takes horrific circumstances in order for a person to see what's right in front of you.
It is, but it means that something good came out of that year of hell - Jack knows what he wants now and his relationship with Ianto can only benefit from that.

Thank you.
Poor Jack. That year was beyond hell. And to be thinking and worrying Of Ianto; no wonder he dreamed/prayed of a better future.
Now he's home again and with Ianto, things will be better. That year is already beginning to seem like it was just a very bad dream. It's taught Jack to appreciate what he has though, so something good came out of it.
Aww *hugs Jack* :-(
Good job, nicely written :-)
Thank you. At least one good thing came from that year - Jack knows what he wants now: to be with Ianto.
It only took Jack a year(torture)to know what he wants!
Well, that's Jack for you, he can be a bit slow that way, lol!

Seriously though, at least one good thing came out of his ordeal!

Thank you.
Poor Jack. I always want to hug him, but I know that task's best left to Ianto. ;)
He went through hell during that year, but he's home now and Ianto will take care of him. Lots of hugs and other stuff on Ianto's To Do list ;)

Thank you.
Oh poor Jack, at least we know he got his chance.
He did. After a year of thinking about it, he got his wish and returned to his Ianto.

Thank you.
