You see this on roflrazzi.com and immediately think of Captain Jack


 
 
 
Dude. Just...whoa. Tearjerker? Not for me personally but it's not a stretch to see why lots of people needed a tissue box or ten. Do I want to break out my collection of dull, rusty spoons and go use them on Uncle Rusty? Oh, so very, very tempting.

Anyone who reads Torchwood fanfic, expect a surge in the number of Mary Sue, Daughter of Captain Jack fics. If you watched the Declassified, you probably caught Uncle Rusty's remark that Jack has lots and lots of kids out there, and my Mary Sue Advance Warning System went off almost immediately. More red flags than a Soviet airport, to quote a s2 epi of Alias.

On a lighter note, did anyone recognize Mr. Yates? ;p

Never forgiven, Never forgotten. - Gwen/Jack fanfic (:

not sure whether or not i should do a sequal :D reviews, if this works :P



‘I’ll never forget you Jack. Not even if you retcon me over and over. I don’t want to…I don’t ever want to forget you. I have to try though, this is the only way…’ Gwen looked anywhere other than his eyes, she wouldn’t let him see her eyes. Those lying eyes. ‘This job is over, I’m leaving here. Rhys, he’s what I…need. He’ll give me the life I should’ve had.’

‘Gwen, you leave here. Go. I care enough about you to let you make your own decisions.’ Jack tried to make eye contact. Gwen’s eyes squeezed shut, shaking her head. Even when they were arguing, he’d still do something better than Rhys would. He’d give her own choices. Another thing to add to the pros about Jack. ‘I will always…we will always be here.’ He sighed, giving up trying to make eye contact, ‘if you remember…’ he whispered.

‘What do you mean if I remember? Jack…’ Gwen shook her head, finally the eye contact he wanted came. ‘You didn’t…you retconned me? I wont forget though Jack.’ She have heartedly laughed. ‘Just like I didn’t forget the first time.’

‘You think…it’s easy for me? You’ll forget, I’ve made sure of it. No traces of torchwood, Ianto, Tosh, Owen. No traces of weevils. Yet…’ he bit his bottom lip, knowing he’d regret it later, ‘the traces of you, will forever be in my mind, and as you know…I’m talking forever here.’ He walked away, out of his office smiling slightly, the retcon wouldn’t kick in, because…he hadn’t given it to her.

‘Jack!’ Gwen’s voice hollered through the hub. Ianto briskly walked through the Cog door, with a she’s-on-a-warpath face. She ran up behind Jack, lashing at him. Jack grinned, the reaction he wanted was this, he knew…he knew that after the fight, would be the make-up. The one thing he didn’t get tired of. ‘You can’t leave it like that. You can’t say stuff you don’t mean…I know you’re lying. The great Captain? He’s great alright, but incapable of feelings.’ He turned to her, grabbed her arms and stared at her. She wanted to break away, wanted to show him she was boss. It was useless.

‘You…Gwen, understanding feelings? You’re going back to your normal life, so you can have a husband and children, for Rhys. Not because you love him, but because you signed up for this. The instant he asked you to marry him, you signed up for it.’ Gwen had dropped her arms to her side, his hands now resting on her biceps. ‘I’ve witnessed every emotion. I’ve experienced most. The first time I loved someone, they died. The second time, they died. I decided then to stop. Love wasn’t something I’d let myself feel, yet emotions run through you like a train on a track. I can hide it, every day I can hide it. I know how I feel. I know the truth.’

‘What’s the…what’s the truth then?’ Gwen looked up at Jack now. She didn’t want to lose this moment, she couldn’t. Jack looked on at her, left go of her arms and walked away. Leaving her, hating him as much as she loved him.

Reasons why killing J would be a bad idea: (Mar 22)

As you may have guessed I got into a fight with J yesterday. (Mar 23)

I woke up last night with the strong feeling that someone was watching me. (Mar 24)

J was standing in the kitchen with me, looking very rumpled. (Mar 26)

I’m being stalked by a spider. (Mar 27)

Me: You have got to be kidding me! (Mar 28)

We had curry for dinner tonight. (Mar 29)

C’s in the hospital. (Mar 30)

C woke up at 3 am. (Mar 31)

I hate April Fool’s. (Apr 1)

C got out of the hospital this afternoon. (Apr 2)

With C furiously compiling files about perspective employees, and J on a steady schedule of conference calls, I had a lot of time to fill today. (Apr 3)
