Author's Note: Written for the tw100 prompt Stars. This was really impulsive, as so many fics based on House Of The Dead this week were.
Disclaimer: I’m not making money with this fanfic. The tv-show Torchwood and the characters appearing within it belong to their producers and creators. Any similarities to living or dead persons are purely coincidental and not intended.


Jack had expected to find Ianto's ghost in that pub tonight, he'd come for him after all. And Ianto, even dead, had done it again: he'd taken care of Jack. He'd tricked him to save him from doing the unthinkable. The Rift was now closed forever and Jack could leave Earth behind to travel the night sky, no looking back.

He would never forget Ianto, though, and it meant the world to him that he'd found the courage to tell him.

Jack smiled and gazed up at the stars, repeating the promise he'd given tonight.

“Ianto Jones, I love you.”

Oh, they're lovely, they are. In life and death. :) This was sweet.

I love the idea of looking to the sky for Ianto, in both this drabble and the other you wrote. Really lovely.

Thank you. :)

Oh, just perfect. Nice little drabble to so adeptly capture the wistfulness of the moment.

Well done!

Nice companion drabble. This is what we needed all along.

Thank you. :) Even though they weren't really supposed to be companions. I wanted to submit Shooting Stars. It Needs Saying was just a spur of the moment thing after listening to House Of The Dead.

Lovely. *sniffs*

Thanks. :)

You are determined to make me cry again. Still lovely.

I'm sorry. And thanks. :)

*welling up* This is one of the lovelier HOTD fics I've read this week. I love the thought that Ianto might watching Jack from wherever he is and that he'll always have a special place in Jack's heart.

Thank you. :)

(I still believe Jack will find a way to get Ianto back, or Ianto will find a way to get back to Jack though)

Well, nobody's gone forever in sci-fi, right?
