This was a really great AU of this episode. I love that you kept Ianto fierce and capable in the re-write of this scene and kept my favorite parts. He did the job even though he was wounded, only letting himself fall when the threat was contained. And I'm always a fan of Jack being worried and sweet. I love them.

And I was encouraged by reading your profile page. Sometimes I get a little discouraged and feel that I'm surrounded by a lot of younger people in some of my fandoms and that I'm a bit disconnected because I'm older than them. I'm in my thirties and I don't have anyone in real life to share any of this with so I'm always pleased to find others out there like me who write about the things they love. (I've only played Dungeons and Dragons once but only because my gaming group is a little obsessed with White Wolf and they're waiting for Exalted Third Edition to come out. We're currently playing space marines in a Warhammer 40K campaign to pass the time.)

I loved that! And I agree, Gwen annoyed me a ton with her "high and mighty act" towards Jack. She just doesn't get it, does she?

Anywho, Jack is so lucky to have Ianto. Although it killed me that he always seemed to pine after Gwen in the series...I wish that it didn't take Ianto getting killed for him to realise what he had.

Great job. I wish the episode had gone like this.

Maybe it strange, but the line I loved the most was Ianto saying to Jack 'No. It pisses me off...' I mean, wow, it sound so much like him, because even if he is usually very obliging and polite, he will say what he's got to say and soone can deny him the right to do so. I don't know why, this line was perfect and went well with the whole story.
The story - amazing, if you ask me. It inspired me to write my own. I really liked it.

Except how does he explain his comment to Gwen about he'd know Gwen was gone if she left.

Love this, it's a really well though out study of what could have happened and also of how much Jack stands to lose every time he takes Ianto out in the field. Gwen really doesn't have a clue, although I've always felt that she doesn't consider Jack and Ianto's relationship to be the equal of the relationship she has with Rhys - she seems to think that it isn't a relationship at all, just casual sex. It irritates me that she never seems to get put straight on things, she just says whatever she wants and gets away with it. Ianto is so right here, Jack has a huge heart and genuinely cares not only about his team but about the poor aliens that get washed up by the rift - the harmless ones, anyway!

Very touching. And very well done. I know you know Tara did that "Torchwood in a Box" video set and recap of the 3 Seasons for me (so that's all I've seen) but even from that I could see these characters.

Especially Ianto and Jack. That was very well done. And for a moment there I was worried you were going to make Jack kiss him back to life. Not that kissing would be bad...but the dying part would. :)

Very well done.

Wonderful what if story. Gwen really annoyed me in Meat, even more than she usually does. I love what if story that deal with Ianto also been hurt and just how Jack would react and this was one of the best one I have read so far.

I also love "what ifs". Also love this story, and glad Ianto's OK.
