nov 19: twfanfic: your hands are cold [Jack/Ianto]  

your hands are cold;
Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones;
U-Rated; Coda “Plant Life”; 400words;
["Plant Life" as in the short story in the Torchwood Yearbook.]

Jack would not see Ianto for days after the incident. And Ianto sought not to seek Jack out either. There existed between them an awkwardness which neither seemed able (nor wanting) to transcend. Jack for shame at failing to realise the severity of the situation as it transpired right beneath his nose. Ianto for shame at being so easily manipulated by the plant life and then later at being so easily dismissed by Jack himself. 

It was four days after before Jack came to see him. Owen was taking further blood samples from Ianto at the time, in a bid to verify that the plant had not altered him in some way or chosen to make him a carrier for its seed. He sat glumly and in silence and let Owen do his work. They shared no words between them for there was nothing to say.

Jack appeared above them in silence a half-hour into the examination. Ianto felt his presence long before he chose to announce it however. There were no words exchanged between any of them, but from the corner of his eye, Ianto saw Owen nod and gather up his samples before escaping his own lab.

Jack's footsteps sound moments later as he stomped his way down the stairs towards Ianto. Ianto who did not look up at his approach nor move to show any acknowledgement of his arrival at all. They said nothing at first. With Jack not knowing what to say and Ianto having nothing to say in return. The silence grew thick and heavy between them and one (or both) of them began to shift in the quiet, growing fidgety and frustrated.

Jack sighed softly, sadly. Ianto looked up despite himself. They met gazes for a time before Jack held out his hands towards him and Ianto- hesitating only a heartbeat longer- reached for his extended fingers, clasping them tightly with his own. Jack stepped closer, drawing Ianto’s hands to his mouth and kissing softly at each of his knuckles. Ianto watched him in silence. Jack’s gaze flickered from his eyes, away, then back again.

“Your hands are cold,” he breathed out, his voice a whisper between them, his eyes a silent plea.

“I’ve had no one to hold them.” Ianto said. There’s an accusation there and Jack nods. Ianto squeezes his fingers and Jack squeezes back and maybe, just maybe, it’ll be alright.

That would be fablious, if you can :)
I would like to read them ^_^
and sheesh spelling mistakes? How juvenile.

Thank you for the advice :P

God I know! I was destroyed! I was all "yes pls John Simm take your shirt off for the ladiezzz" and then he didn't and I was like D:<

But then his lovely face took the pain away =)

Oohoo pairing...Difficult.
I could use this chance to blackmail you into writing more Eight/Ianto (seriously I am still re-reading the last ones...a lot)... and do jelly babies count as enough of a prompt? (lol sorry i'm so useless)

If not, considering this lovely conversation, why not something with Edward Sexby? (cos he's just lovely) and pairing-wise I really don't mind...as long as he is still sexy.

LOL Sexy Sexby.

I am quite immature really.

omgz *hugs* Thank you 8)
Hope they are useful?

And SO MUCH WELL DONE for this month!

I'll try it for you for tomorrow then X) ...plus it gives me an excuse to read "Plant Life" again anyway, hehe.

omg I wrote you 8/Ianto because I got your first comment without the SEXY SEXBY part added to it :O ...I think I might have failed trying to write him though. He'd have ended up being all manly and dirty and naked and in the lake and there'd have been het or something, and yes. aha. ...Eight/Ianto is better anyway, ys? XD and there are jellybabies. So you have to like it :P lmao.

[ eye of the black moon (part one)!!! ]

And THANK YOU! very much. I've almost failed a few times this month, but it's knowing that there are people like you reading almost every fic that made me keep going! <33 X)

You just made me snort juice out of my nose...

the image of "manly and dirty and naked and in the lake" will stay with me forever. And ever.

And as echoed on linked fic, I actually love you X)

That fic has made my day.

HAI! ...what's so snort-worthy of the "manly and dirty and naked and in the lake" Sexby!? XD it's totally plausable. Can you not just see him standing on the bank in all his naked splendor (with his hands on his hips. And probably with his hat and boots still on, coz well, he *is* a man) and being all generally manly and dirty and *naked*?!

Okay. It's maybe a little snort worthy XD XD XD

AWW THANK YOU! ILUTOO. I'm so glad you liked it X) it's only a part one mind, so I shall most definitely be continuing it and will endeavour make it more plotting and stuff. yeah. <33

Right that's it. I am never drinking anything again when reading your reply.

Cos this time it was coke that I snorted out of my nose, and it hurt lol.

That image is going to plague me! At inconvenient moments, I am going to suddenly have that image with the hat and the boots flash in my mind, and I am not going to be able to control myself!

:O There's more? 8D
I am so excited.
So so excited.


But it is a good image. And a sexy one. Sexby NAKED X) So much win.

It is a very compelling image isn't it? It's at times like this that I really wish I were able to draw because I'd love to see Sexby all posed up like that. haha.

To me he's kind of looking the same way as Jack Harkness does when he's standing ontop of some really high building! XD you know, with that whole "WORLD, I TOTALLY OWN YOU" pose as he surverys his domain. Or in Sexby's case, his lady in the pond. Who'd totally be all like "OH YOU SEXY SEXBY YOU TOTALLY PWN ME *drowns*".

Or something. I have no idea where I'm going with that line of thought really. XD

YES! There'll be more! heh. I've totally got a plot all decided upon, and just need to sit down and write it all out now X) so, more, soon!

There are still more episodes of Devil's Whore! We can hope right? One of the writers might have a sudden epiphany and redo that scene properly in a future ep :D
Or, we kidnap them and hold them to ransome until they write it properly :)

...I really wanna draw it too...For my own peace of mind :P...But I should be doing an essay...

Simple decision really ;)

Tbh I'd probably drown with the shock of seeing the pretty all Captain Jack-esque, being naked (except for hat and boots)while I was innocently swimming in a pond.

^_^ Yayz
