Drabble: Burden Of Guilt

Title: Burden Of Guilt
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 470: Prison at tw100.
Spoilers: Cyberwoman.
Summary: Ianto doesn’t feel he’s being punished enough for what he did.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: 100 words first try!

‘Two people lost their lives because of my stupidity,’ Ianto thinks. ‘An innocent young woman and a probably not so innocent scientist had their lives cruelly cut short because I thought I could save someone who was already dead. I might as well have murdered them myself; their blood is on my hands. But for me, they’d still be alive.’

Yet despite that, here he was, sitting on the sofa in his sparsely furnished, poky little flat, suspended from work for a month. What kind of punishment was that? He should be tossed in prison and the key thrown away.

The End


Great drabble
Thank you!
He'll never stop feeling responsible, even though he was trying to do the best he could. Jack will come to understand that and comfort him. When the rest of the team come to think about it they will understand
I like to think that's how it will go once everyone thinks it all through and tries to put themselves in Ianto's place.

Thank you.

*hugs woobie* If Jack thought you deserved prison for what you'd done, then that's where you'd be. But you're not.

Yeah, Ianto is just having a bit of trouble accepting that he doesn't deserve to be locked up.

Thank you!
