Jack is thinking about torture.

The team had mostly been silent on the way back, in varying degrees of shock or exhaustion, and Jack himself still in the eerie spaced-out calm that had followed the blinding, murderous rage that had driven him almost to the edge of a place he thought he was done with. Further, he thinks grimly, eyes steady on the road, hands gripping the steering wheel just a little too tight and for once driving strictly within the traffic laws.

A long time ago, he was pretty good at torture.

He still is, today proved that. But now that's not something good, even when it helps them. Just another day in the life of Jack Harkness, monster for humanity. Funny how that turned out.

He drops off Gwen, Owen and Tosh at their respective flats, Gwen to Rhys' unknowing presence, Tosh and Owen alone, but he brings Ianto back with him to the hub almost without thinking about it. The paramedics had gone over him at the village - nothing broken, but savagely beaten, and fairly badly concussed - and who else does he have to sit up with him? It's not as if Jack will sleep tonight in any case.

They park outside the office, and Jack goes around to open the door.

"Come on," he says, offering a hand.

Ianto puts a hand in Jack's and braces himself on the car door. "Make the world stand still," he mutters before hauling himself out.

"Okay," Ianto says faintly, all but leaning into Jack as he gets the ground under his feet.


[ooc: Sorry about the wait--we chatted for a lot longer than I expected.]

Ianto leans back without comment, long legs stretched out, weariness in every bone.

"Am I not supposed to sleep or am I supposed to sleep?" he mumbles, and gropes for the nearest bit of Jack he can reach for something to ground him.

Coat. That'll work.

"Okay."

Please note: Ianto is generally not this agreeable without eyerolling.

"Talk to me?"

Date: 2008-06-14 10:12 pm (UTC)
likesthecoat: (serious)

"I don't care." He tugs on Jack's coat. "Tell me a story."

"Tell me a story please," Ianto murmurs and starts to shake his head, but immediately regrets it.

"Never met any Liirthuni."

"In the country of the blind the one-eye man is king," which makes total sense to him.

"Mm. War profiteering."

See, he's following. Really.

From: [personal profile] likesthecoat
Ianto smiles as much as he can while moving minimal facial muscles and says, "Name one after me."

Truth has no place in bedtime stories.

Ianto chuckles. And then whimpers a little, but buries it. They gave him medication for the various swellings and pains but not too much, due to the head injury.

So he's both vague and hurting. Talk about good times.

"Not seven feet tall."

"They forgot the Fuller brushes."

He's still clutching Jack's coat, a little less for orientation now.

Ianto opens one eye. "The cavalry?"

"Mm," sleepily. "Heroes to the rescue."

Date: 2008-06-14 11:51 pm (UTC)
likesthecoat: (well-dressed man)
From: [personal profile] likesthecoat
"Mm," again, in a positive, 'go on, please' kind of way. "Dashing heroes to the rescue."



[ooc: Good night! Feel better. *hugs*]

Another quiet chuckle. "Rings on your fingers and bells on your toes."

Ianto chuckles softly. "Y' always look stunning."

"This time you chose flirting?" He looks at Jack through half-closed eyes, a very small smile on his lips.

Ianto nudges him with his knee. "Good for you."

"Yay," Ianto murmurs. "Happy ending."

"Victory through confusion." He smiles deeper. "I like it."

Ianto smiles and softly applauds. "Hooray for Ianto and Captain Jake. And the Queen, of course."

"I could sleep," Ianto murmurs, getting as comfortable as he can while moving as little as possible. "Thank you, sir."

This bothers Ianto very little.

He makes an affirmative-sounding hum and pulls up his legs so he can stretch out on the couch.
