TWFanFic: Don't Ever Change [Gen: Ianto&Gwen]  
Title: Don't Ever Change
Rating(s): U-Rated
Pairing(s): Gen: Ianto Jones, Gwen Cooper
A/N: A random dabbling I'm possibly cutting out of a fic-in-progress, thought I'd offer it up to the flist just because I think it's a somewhat cutesy moment between these two. 
 - - -
The door of the Information Centre slammed open with gusto, wind and rain hurling itself into the small room along with one rather drenched looking female. Ianto rounded the desk, hurrying to help her shut the door tightly against the high powered winds. Managing that, Ianto turned to look at the sodden creature before him. Gwen stood, shivering under the short leather jacket and jeans combo she wore. Her hair was windswept into knots and her converse trainers squelched loudly as she shifted awkwardly in her wet clothes.
“Thanks.” She gasped out a little breathlessly.
“Did you walk to work?” Ianto asked with a note of incredulity in his voice as he moved to step behind the front desk a moment before disappearing momentarily through the beaded curtain.
“Had to take my car in for servicing,” Gwen explained, “I took the bus down. This-,” she indicated distastefully to herself as Ianto re-appeared with a mop and bucket and a hand towel which he passed to her, “-thanks. This is only from walking the length of the Plass.” She shivered. “I didn’t think I’d make it down. That wind is scary!”
Ianto nodded, already mopping up the sodden patch of ground before the doorway. “You should have called. One of us would have picked you up.”
Gwen smiled and shrugged. “I’ll be sure and remember that for next time.”
Setting the mop and bucket to the side, Ianto casually flipped the sign on the door from ‘open’ to ‘closed’ and turned the locks.
“I doubt anyone will be planning sightseeing trips down to the bay today.” Ianto said by way of explanation. Gwen nodded emphatically.
“It’s rather doubtful,” she agreed, using the hand towel to pat the wetness from her hair before then trying to tug it into some semblance of normality. She gave up with a defeated sigh when her fingers became awkwardly tangled themselves.
“Am I right in assuming you’ve a spare set of clothes kept away for emergencies such as this?” Ianto asked.
“Oh! Oh yes!” Her eyes lit up. “I’d forgotten about that.”
Ianto smiled politely. “Then let’s get you down to the shower rooms and warmed up?” Gwen nodded, feeling cheered up at the very thought.
“I suspect a coffee wouldn’t go amiss either?”
Gwen laughed, her face splitting into a wide smile.
“Oh, Ianto, don’t ever change!”
Ianto inclined his head, smiling a little smugly as he depressed the button behind the information desk, opening up the passageway that led down into the bowels of the hub

I have to admit that before S2 started, I definitely felt the same way about Gwen, but now? She's starting to grow on me. And just so long as she keeps her paws off Jack plays nice, I feel this could be the start of a beautiful friendship ;) hehe.

Thanks for reading! Ianto and Gwen just got along so well in S2 I really couldn't resist!

Thank you!

I think that's what they see Ianto as being- the strong and reliable type of guy. The one you can count on to be there when you need him most and stuff. And after writing this, I just felt it only right that I share one such moment :)

Gwen and Ianto have such a cute friendship!
Lovely, as always. Might I ask what fic you took this from?
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2.07 \\ Jack Harknesscs_whitewolf on May 18th, 2008 10:10 pm (UTC)
Don't they just! I adored the dynamics they shared in S2 and hope that things'll be explored more in S3 now that there is just the three of them. ::sniffle::

And you may ask! This excerpt is from a fic I've not yet posted (and wasn't sure I'm going to use, hence this little pice), the fic is bit of an AU set after "Combat" and follows the idea of (Owen's/the) Weevil bite actually leading someone to develop Weevil-like characteristics. The working title for it is "Tuesday's Dead". I'm hoping to start posting soon so look out for it if it piques your interest ;)

Thanks for reading this too!

Ahaa! That's gorgeous :).
It's that last line of Gwen's (“Oh, Ianto, don’t ever change!”) that I even READ in a Welsh accent! It's a nice change to have bits like this without any need for pairings.
It's so cute ^_^.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2.07 \\ Gwen is spooked!cs_whitewolf on May 30th, 2008 07:05 am (UTC)
Thank you! X) ...and with a Welch accent? Awesome!

I was completely won over by their frienship in series two that I just cannot resist writing them together. They really are so cute around each other! heh.

I adore this. I hope that next series will see Ianto and Gwen's friendship develop more.

Thank you :) and I do hope so too! They had a wonderful friendship in series two and it would be wonderful to see that expanded.
