Jack feels Ianto’s loss keenly in the wake of the 456. A stranger offers him a simple favor in exchange for Ianto’s life back but Jack soon learns that things that seem too good to be true usually are.

Promises Cover

Jack realized that he wasn’t alone between his fourth and twelfth Andorran Slammer. He lifted his head from the fold of his arms and contemplated ordering another. He shouldn’t, not if he wanted to make it back to his room tonight, though he was likely past the ‘able to walk in a straight line’ threshold already. His room had seen little of him so far, and he saw no need to change that pattern. A drink appeared in front of him before he could even raise his hand.

He looked over. There was a time when finding a pretty woman sitting next to him, handing him a drink, would have brought his charm on full force. Drinks would have led to sex, possibly a couple days worth. That time was over, had been for months. He couldn’t. Not since….

Stay with me. Please! Stay with me, please, please…

Jack grabbed the drink and slammed it back. He waved to get the bartender’s attention and wordlessly ordered another.

“Troubles?” The woman’s voice was thickly accented, deep and somewhat soothing.

Jack gave her a second look. She seemed human, but he could tell she was not. There were differences. Tiny differences that probably would have been overlooked by most, but Jack was a human connoisseur. He’d been living surrounded by them for years, which just made the differences all the more noticeable. Her nose was too long and narrow, her forehead too broad, her chin too angular. Either she was from one of the off-shoot races – a mixed breed – or she’d tried to mimic their look without paying close attention to the details.

A new drink appeared before him. The empty glasses were cleared away without a word.

  1. I adore this! It was an original concept for a fix it, the characters were so very true, and I just couldn’t stop reading. Jack’s reaction to Ianto, and Ianto’s to him was just perfect. That scene was just so beautifully written, the emotion of them coming back together made me cry. Great job! Definitely one to favourite!

  2. This was lovely. You wrote a wonderful fixit without ignoring or breaking canon. The reunion scene was especially touching. Very nicely done, everyone stayed in character, their voices all rang true!

  3. Awesome! You did a really good job at developing Ianto, and I always like an appearance from the Doctor. I love how you wrote Gwen, too.
    My only criticism is that it ended too swiftly. Everything was too neatly wrapped up for me; I hope you write some more fics in this series!
