Torchwood : COE : Pimpage : A Blip In Time (Jack/Ianto)  
Found via thisissirius and omg it's broken me all over again. I'm not usually this fragile over things but Torchwood: Children of Earth has really struck a cord. It was just too brilliant and too devastating and I think it'll take me a helluva while to fully recover from everything that happened.

[ Jack/Ianto | SFW | Spoilers for TW: COE & Radio Play: The Dead Line ]

...though watching fanvids like this probably don't help much at all. Still, it was just too gorgeous not to share with you all. ::passes out hankies::

I'm still so very distressed over the whole thing. I shouldn't watch vids like this one but GAH I'm just a glutton for punishment.

It's so beautiful but so terribly sad too. I love how they've used Ianto's mono from the "The Dead Line" over the clips :((

Yep... now I'm just going to sit here and cry. That was bloody heart-wrenching... and beautiful.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh. My. God. That's a beautiful video. Just perfectly done!

I'd forgotten how much "happy" there was amongst all the angst we got. It's so bittersweet seeing it all like this. The creater did an amazing job!

I ♥ that video!! Watched it the other night and it made me cry but it's the best video that I've seen recently <33333333333333333

ARGH. Dear Lord, that was absolutely beautiful all the way through.

I think I've reached the stage where I'm not sobbing every time I think about it, or see it (which was what I was like for three days following Ianto's death), but that still cut me up. Gah.

As well as that, though, I love that video for making me more appreciative of what we had between Jack and Ianto in series three. People are complaining about the tragic ending, about writers "lying" to them, but it really was beautiful in parts, even if it ended terribly. That shot in the Hub 2 where they're smiling at each other...gah. Just gorgeous. I'll always love both of them.

(By the way; read your post on loving Children of Earth despite raging emotion, and I completely agree. It was heartbreaking but impossible to hate because it was so good. Good on ya.)
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ S3 \\ The Kisscs_whitewolf on July 14th, 2009 09:06 pm (UTC)
I think after a while you just start to go a bit numb over the whole thing :(

...exactly! Seeing all those "happy moments" in amongst the angst just makes you appreciate what they had all the more. And it does proove that even though we got the tragic ending, there was love between them. <33

(thanks! Even though it completely broke me, there's no way I can bring myself to hate it only any kind of serious lever. It was simply brilliant television and the best series IMO to boot. :) ...if you're interested btw, tw_coe. Just a little place I set up to keep us saner fans away from the crazy!)

Thank you Thank you Thank you
I'm welling up while watching this fan video. I know that some folks are pissed and angry, but I don't feel that what happened in CoE negates the love that Jack has (and will always have) for Ianto. What they had was real for them as a fictional couple and for me, who enjoyed watching them on screen.

I will never feel that way.

For me, Torchwood was more than just seeing cute and fun and flirty scenes between Jack and Ianto.

It was about a group of people, of friends working together to deal with things and issues that most folks could never even contemplate.

Thank you again.

Re: Thank you Thank you Thank you
You're very welcome. Once I saw the video I just had to pimp it out to everyone else out there- it's too good not to get it out to the rest of the fandom :)

And yes! That exactly. What they had was real, even if it's easy to forget that what with everything else that happened. <33 ...Torchwood finally grew up and into themselves in series three, and even though it hurts and I wish Ianto'd never died, it was the best series of the show hands down!

Woman that was heart breaking but I loved it thanks for sharing. Makes up for the lack of good fic.

Man, I know :( if only all the fic getting posted out there could hit as hard as this vid does!
