Ianto’s birthday went by practically un-remarked due to an insanely overactive Rift, several invasion attempts, five time-displaced people and a party of alien tourists who caused mass panic among the locals. The others wished him a happy birthday when their paths happened to cross, but that was it.
Ianto understood, but it was still something of a letdown.
Weeks later, when things finally settled down, Jack called Ianto to the boardroom.
As he stepped through the door, the whole team chorused “Happy Birthday, Ianto!”
There were decorations, gifts, even a cake!
“Better late than never, right?” Jack grinned.
