This is great I could easily see this happening in the series. Excellent. My favorite line:

“Being killed isn’t sleeping”

Author's Response: No, it most assuredly isn\'t! Thanks.

First of all, welcome to writing Jack/Ianto! I hope you do it a lot more. Now, for the fun stuff.

I love stories like this. You have not in any way stinted on or shied away from the tremendous emotion between them, yet everything feels plausible. It's good when an author can give us an unflinching look at this in her/his own voice. It's all too easy to give in to the temptation to make too much or too little of it.

The acid test, for me, is the "I love you". In this case, you made it work by making it an evasion on Jack's part while still having him tell the truth. You didn't make a big deal out of it, you didn't explicate, and you let Ianto see through it whilst still accepting the emotion. The fact that it was just there was a wonderful fit with the feel of the show. I don't remember seeing it done this way in Torchwood fic before, and find it incredibly refreshing. Well done!

I also liked the way that Ianto grounded Jack's sleep to his physical and emotional presence. That was lovely, as was the look you gave us of Ianto's bare soul as he was coping with his depth of feeling for Jack. This, to me, feels very true to character. Ianto may guard his emotions and truth in front of others, but I don't think he lies to himself as much as he might sometimes wish he did.

Finally, the ending was beautifully understated and poignant. Perfect for them and the realities of their world.

Thank you for this story. I look forward to reading more from you.

Author's Response: Thank you for a fantastic review! I love hearing something thought-out and insightful. After all, ones reviews are the only paymen one gest for these stories -- Instant gratification, as well. Yes, you\'ll be seeing more from me, the next time I\'m avoiding being productive.

Author's Response: Oh, and forgive my spelling above, I was writing at three AM.
