Ianto’s first day at Torchwood 3.  Jack “helps” him move in.

Why You Should Read This:

If you haven’t seen the Torchwood episodes “Cyberwoman” and “Fragments” you will probably think this is just PWP.  I assure you it is not.  It is in some ways a horror story, yet, not that either.  All I can say is that it turned me on and gave me a terrific set of the shivers at the same time.

I said in the warnings that this is definitional dubious consent on both sides. That is because on one side there is considerable question just how much Ianto actually wants Jack and how much he is doing it because he feels he must and on the other side  Ianto’s deception makes Jack’s consent irrelevant.

Ianto shook his head, keeping his eyes fixed on Jack’s. “I know why you’re really here. You’re not interested in what’s in that box,” and the way he said it was almost hypnotic. He approached slowly, and his expression was the same as when he’d been reaching to touch the fresh weevil bite on Jack’s neck; purposeful, knowing. “You’re not interested in what I’m doing. You’re interested in me.”

The sex is intense and the questions that arise from this encounter are many.  Unfortunately, unless you’ve seen at least “Cyberwoman” most of the subtext–and this story is more subtext than text–will go right over your head.  So hit up Netflicks first and then read this.  It is beautifully written and frankly devastating and just….gah…….
