Stay On Topic
In which Ianto shows some teeth, the others are shocked and Gwen decides to take things into her own hands. (Now the Gwackers would really see red, I'm afraid.)

Usually, here would be a warning that this is not a Gwen-friendly story, but that's hardly necessary here. Let's just say that it contains a great deal of Gwen-bashing, for which the Gwackers on FF.Net will probably lynch me, so feel free to take a look and be supportive. *g*

To celebrate Part 60, which I have never reached with any other story before, this one contains a little Gwen-bashing, just to make me feel even better. *g*
With this part, the Interlude ends and the story goes on hiatus until I've finished the 5th installment, which will be the Wholock-version of "The Speckled Band".

Oh, and the virtual birthday party is still going on, with picspam from the recent Chocolate Festival. Their coffee boy wasn't Ianto, unfortunately, but at least they didn't have a Teflon Tart. ;)
"Perhaps I have one more (Torchwood) story (after Miracle Day).. This will be Gwen's story. Jack's story has now sort of been told - I love Eve & I'd like to learn more about Gwen
Feb, 2011, Roald Dahl Plâs, Cardiff."
I've never seen an episode of Miracle Day, never seen a clip, only heard what other people had to say about it. Maybe I saw a few photos around. I don't watch BBCA. So I'm minding my own business in the break room at work and look up at the TV on the wall and what do I see? An ad for MD! (Can't hear the sound with all the people talking so I was totally blindsided). Unfortunately it was like a train wreck -- I tried to look away... but I looked up again just in time to see Superhero Gwen with her rocket lancher or whatever it was. That was when I fled to the bathroom to escape. I'm traumatized. I can't believe Gwen invaded my workplace. No one even watches BBC where I work! I have lost my innocence and will never get it back. I need sympathy!
On a related note, does anyone have a character they hate more than Gwen? Because I gotta say, after many decades of TV watching, I truly hate Gwen Cooper more than any other character I've ever seen. In fact, I rarely totally hate them. I hardly spend any time on LJ these days, so I just have the basic free account now with only 6 user icons. I hate Gwen so much I had to keep one anti-Gwen to use. What a remarkable woman!
In which Ianto gets his answer from Mr Dekker, but it's not an easy thing.
Warning for a torture scene.
I'd say "enjoy", but it might sound a bit disturbing.
