Ahhh, this was all so perfectly done!! I love the way you actually spotlight the flaws as well as the highlights of each relationship - especially Jack's relationship with Ianto. Too many people gloss over how Ianto conned him - and it was a major hurdle they had to get around to build that wonderful trust they had. Thank you for this! A marvelous fiction!
Author's Response: I really wanted to present each one as a character portrait, complete with virtues and flaws, just from Jack\'s point of view. I\'m so glad you enjoyed it. :-)
Wonderful studies of all of them. You've captured the dynamics between all four and Jack perfectly. I'll be using this as a reference, :).
Thanks for writing!
Author's Response: That\'s a fantastic compliment. I\'m glad you appreciated them. :)
I like a Jack that is a little more complicated than willing to have sex with anything. The relationships you describe are good, and I read the ending with Ianto as foreshadowing his pain in CoE. Nice. Thank you for sharing.
Author's Response: I\'m glad both those things came through. Thanks for reading, and for taking the time to review. :)
I think you're right on the money with Tosh and Owen. Gwen, I don't know. I think he cares very deeply for her, which is why he encourages her to keep her normal life. But in the romantic department, I think he treats her very much like a puppy, gives her a pat on the head and throws her a bone once in a while but mostly entertains himself watching her antics.
Ianto, not that one is perfect. It's just complicated, and you expressed that beautifully.
Author's Response: Ah, but how he treats her and what he feels may be two very different things. Blame the acting if you like, or my reading of it, but I totally read certain interactions between them as it just killing him to walk away from her, even though he knows he should. :) Thank you for reading, and for the thoughtful comment!
very accurate of all of them
Author's Response: Thank you! That\'s probably the best compliment I could get on this piece. :)
I think you got all of the relationships down perfectly. Great work :)
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you enjoyed. :)
Very well done.
Author's Response: Thank you!
I liked this story-Jack's POV was insightful. In particular on Ianto and Jack's relationship...to pained souls...kind of how I see them
Author's Response: I\'m glad it worked for you. Thanks for reading. :)
