He barely felt the hot water biting his skin, the bruises, abrasions and scratches. He didn't even feel the steady stream turn cold, didn't realize he was starting to shiver, his lips slowly turning blue. Ianto hadn't felt anything but detached from the world around him for weeks – forgotten like yesterday's news, simply not there anymore.

The cannibals were right, he was just meat – walking, talking, coffee-serving meat. All he wanted was for someone to remember him, to come looking for him, but he knew he shouldn't hope for it. Not after everything he did. Not after Lisa.

So sad, but closer to canon than most fanfic.

This is really powerful, and like aviv_b says, definitely fits in with canon better than a lot of others out there! At least we know Jack goes looking for him...eventually :)
