So nice to see a fic dealing with the aftermath of his burial, the inevitable loss of memory and familiarity - which gets so forgotten in the horror of losing Tosh and Owen. Even the touch about being chained (again, after a year of the Master's torture not so very long ago) is rather brilliant, poignant. Beautiful ending, as well, so gentle and with that faint undercurrent of hope.
Here from Calufrax. Glad I came. :)
aww. that is so sweet i have toothache.
Here from Calufrax. This was very good; the way Jack was feeling after 2000 years of burial and freezing felt right, as well as Ianto's instincts about what he needed to begin healing. Well done.
I love this. I am all about sensory imagery in fiction- it helps to ground the reader in the experience. I love the way you used it to ground the reader as well.
Just ran across this. Really liked i.
Read this story ages ago and loved it and have just read it again - still love it!
Author's Response: Thank you very much!
I love this story! I love you have explored the effects of being buried alive. Forgetting how things taste and smell is just genius
Author's Response: Thank you very much :) Glad you liked it!
Lovely. I adore Ianto's ability to care for Jack, to know what he needs. Great ending.
Author's Response: Thank you :)
Aww this is brilliant!! Love it!
Author's Response: Thank you very much :)
Wonderful wonderful wonderful. So like Ianto to immediately realise and plan for what was needed re Jack's quarters, and then to help Jack with his memories. Wonderful (yes I know I'm repeating myself).
Author's Response: Thank you very much :D
Wow- that's absolutely beautiful. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who though that Jack wouldn't go back into his little manhole for ages because of the burying.
Thanks so much for writing something like this- it was just the breaik I needed from my Lit essay! *faves*
Author's Response: Aw, thank you very much. Glad you enjoyed it.
Wow.... that was really powerful.
They do say that our sense of smell is the one most connected to memory and emotion.
Author's Response: Thank you very much.
