This is the saddest head canon I have ever seen. :(

This is the saddest head canon I have ever seen. :(

I started writing a simple conversation between Jack and Ianto about categories and labels.
It’s dialogue only and over 3K now. 
I guess they had a lot to say about the subject.
What I love about these sort of fics are how they evolve in the making. I didn’t even see the end coming, and I’m the author.
I wish I wrote for television sometimes. 
I shall post when it is ready!

LOOKING FOR A FANFIC

Jack/Ianto. M/NC17. I read it a few years ago, but now I’ve remembered it and now it’s bugging me. The world is a computer simulation, and Jack goes into it and unexpectedly falls in love with one of the people in the simulation, Ianto. And then there’s some stuff about a dick (not the phallic…

This sounds very much like ‘When the Stars Turn Blue’ by riftintime on fanfiction.net. Here is the link:
Awesome story - read it even if it’s not the right one!

Hope that’s it or that you enjoy - read all her stuff, it’s fabulous! 

On camera he acts like a very staid, stoic individual, but if you go to a club with him you don’t want to be near him when he gets on the dance floor. I’ve seen him standing there screaming at the top of his lungs, completely out of character.

I love this. It’s adorable. It’s perfect.

This. Them. Love.

Being here, I’ve seen things I never dreamt I’d see. Loved people I never would have known if I’d just stayed where I was. And I wouldn’t change that for the world.

Best kiss ever. Excuse me while I stare at it for a few hours and sob over its beauty.

And the fact that we didn’t get to see more. I would have rather seen Jack and Ianto in bed than Tosh and Tommy. I’d even take the rumoured two minute shoot they did while filming.

They are so beautiful and perfect here. I want my own Jack or Ianto. Or both.

Can we take a moment to appreciate the adorkableness of John and Misha?

Let’s take several. Can I drool too?

It started drizzling as we were coming home earlier. The sun came out and my daughter wanted to see a rainbow. And lo-and-behold! One appeared before us as we turned the corner.

So we drove home the very long and convoluted way, basically trying to keep the rainbow in sight. At one point a second one started developing. 

And the entire time we were listening to John Barrowman singing on his newest cd. While chasing a rainbow.

I laughed to myself and called it perfect. Thank you, John. :)

I just adore the fact that Ianto never openly defined his sexuality.

Head canon: if he learnt something from Jack, it has to be to not put everything in neatly checked off boxes and just enjoy the moment. Screw labels, and just enjoy what is happening.

To play devil’s advocate here…what if accepting a label or definition helps someone better understand themself? Or what if someone rejects a label or definition because they are afraid of what it might mean?

Once again, I love reading your brilliant responses!

I especially thought what you had to say about the writers themselves at the end was telling. And the first thing that jumped to my mind was that scene in ‘Twilight Streets’ where Gwen talks to Ianto about being bisexual and he gets extremely defensive and even angry about it. I always found that rather out of character. Now, Gwen’s approach is rather crude and awkward, but I tend to think he would have blown it off rather than react. He’s private, for whatever reasons we assume. To look at it from the writer’s perspective rather than the character’s makes the whole scene even more interesting. Even though I thought it was out of character for Ianto, it seemed like something that a bisexual person might say or struggle with (I don’t know, I’m not bisexual but frankly reading and watching TW has really opened my mind to the ‘it’s the person, not their gender’ way of thinking). Now I wonder if it’s more on the author and society’s thoughts in general.

Great points about Jack growing up in a different time but living through the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. What a struggle it must have been! And great point about Ianto possibly needing that support and vocabulary. Do you think he was against labels because it was still confusing for him, in context of society? I’d imagine he was comfortable with himself, with Jack, even within TW, but maybe it was harder to take a label stepping out into the real world. 

But since the writers never went there, who knows. 

My thoughts about the labels didn’t apply to their sexuality so much as their relationship. But this is long enough. More later, I suppose. :)

Thanks!

My own thoughts about labels, Jack, and Ianto should probably have a separate post. ;)

Magazine Monday (Flashback!): John Barrowman gets (i think) his first appearance on the cover of the Radio Times along with the rest of the lovely Torchwood actors to promote the first series. 21st October 2006 :o)

I love this! GDL says there’s definitely an attraction for Jack…and possibly Gwen? What?! And he knew Ianto’s secret, I love that. Then JB comes along and refers to Ianto as the piece of tart on the side. Jeez. I wonder how much the other actors knew about the Ianto’s secret before they filmed CW? I know they filmed it before some of the earlier ones so they must have known something. 

As a latecomer, it’s always fun getting a glimpse into the early days of TW! Thanks for sharing!

Wow, this was TWENTY YEARS AGO! 

And he’s still got it. :)

And the hair. THE HAIR.

I love this man. I really do.

I always thought Jack’s question about the code was odd. He doesn’t really need that code, does he? First of all, he should know it. Second of all, if Jack doesn’t know it, there’s a good chance Ianto does. And third of all, Tosh could hack it if it really was a secret Owen took to his grave (which is incredibly unlikely considering Jack had the passwords to the secure archives in his desk in EoD!)

Which means Jack must be grabbing at strings here - he can’t say what he really wants to say and spits out the first thing that comes to mind to cover his real feelings. Which seems so very Jack, and so very sad. 

I still can’t believe they originally planned this story arc for Ianto. It wouldn’t have worked nearly as well given Owen’s love for sex and alochol and his raging anger over the whole situation. I suspect Ianto would have accepted it far too readily for good drama, seeing it as a sort of penance. It would have made his relationship with Jack rather tragic, but given how little attention the writers paid to that anyway, I doubt it would have even been mentioned and we wouldn’t have seen the heartbreak anyway. So as much as it sucked for Owen, it was a great plot line. 

And I know a lot of people disagree and hated it, but well. That’s what makes a fandom fun: agreeing and disagreeing and then writing fanfiction about it. ;)

One thing that always gets me about Ianto Jones/GDL is how in one scene he can look so young and innocent, and then in the next episode he looks so much older and experienced. I can’t figure out why or how but yeah. It’s remarkable. And this gif makes me sad for some reason.

and it's about time I did something about that.

And if the writers are smart, this is what will bring Jack Harkness back to Doctor Who and set Tumblr on fire.
