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? 

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.

We’re all thinking it, right?
FANFICTION! NOW! :)

Oh my gosh who ever confessed this I need to say if I ever heard that go off in a public place I would freak out and just smile so big at you, like literally that would make my day

Me too! How does one go about doing this? I want a new text alert especially! Thanks!

It has come to my attention that five whole years have passed since the fictional demise of Ianto Jones, former coffee boy, pterodactyl handler and all-purpose snugglebunny of the parish of Torchwood. So here’s a mini tribute, accompanied by a revival of one of my favourite ridiculous Torchwood puns…

At least I’m going to bed with a smile… :)

Don’t Leave Me Again

And here it is, the finished product of a day spent in Tumblr remembrance of one of my favorite fictional characters. The first link is to the story at AO3, the second at ff.net, and I will paste the story below as well.

I do hope you enjoy. RIP Ianto Jones.

Summary: Jack Harkness is about to destroy the aliens who took so much from him back on Earth. He is also about to learn that the end is indeed where one starts from, for this ending is an unexpected beginning as well.

Ianto Jones, RIP

Aside from reblogging way too many Ianto Jones posts, I have also spent my afternoon not mourning, but celebrating and quite possibly resurrecting this remarkable character. Because apparently, like I just told my beta, I am quite capable of dropping 1.5K of soppy bullshit on the fly. So as soon as I give it a spit and polish to be sure it even makes sense let alone isn’t littered with spelling and punctuation errors, I will post it here and add it to the ever growing Ianto Jones tag. Because he was a great character who didn’t deserve to die…and I believe whole-heartedly that a good writer could certainly bring him and Jack back to Doctor Who. Perhaps this will be that story. So stay tuned…

I don’t post this picture often but the Torchwood fandom needs this right now. 
Here’s a shirtless GDL.

It’s a good day for this, yes.
I do wonder, though… what’s with the fancy house in the background? Where is he that he’s shirtless like this?? 
Not that I’m complaining…
