Author's Notes:
My only drabble so far for Challenge 358: Revenge at tw100.

Spoilers: Cyberwoman.

Summary: Ianto wants revenge for Lisa’s death.

Drabble Version

Alone in his flat, Ianto dreams of revenge. He wants the team to pay for killing Lisa, imagines all the ways he can make them suffer.

His thirst for revenge keeps him going for a week. They executed Lisa, and they deserve what’s coming to them.

Except they didn’t, not really. They shot Annie, with Lisa’s brain in her head. By then even Lisa’s brain wasn’t her own. While he’d kept her hidden, she’d lost her battle against the cyber-implants.

Revenge was futile. What the team had killed hadn’t been Lisa but the monster she’d become, and he was glad.

The End


Extended Version

Sitting alone in his dark and empty flat, Ianto dreams of revenge. He wants the whole Torchwood Three team to pay for what they did to Lisa, and he plays out scenarios in his head, imagining all the many ways he can make them suffer.

His thirst for revenge keeps him going for the first week of his suspension. They killed the woman he loved, executed her without mercy, and they deserve what’s coming to them.

Except, of course, they didn’t, not really. They shot Annie, the pizza girl, with Lisa’s brain in her head, and by then even Lisa’s brain wasn’t entirely her own. Somewhere during the long months he’d kept her hidden, his Lisa had lost her battle against the cyber-implants.

Revenge was futile. What the team had killed hadn’t been the woman he’d loved but the monster she’d become, and he was glad that they’d done it.

The End
