Fic: Sleeping Soul, Prologue

Title: Sleeping Soul
Author: Zanna
Pairing/Characters: Jack/Ianto, rest of team
Rating: PG13 (for now, I'll probably have to change it later)
Disclaimer: They belong to the BBC and RTD, not to me.
Spoilers: all throughout S1, Doctor Who "Last of the Time Lords"
Beta: laren01  and koryou  
Summary: The year that never was changed Jack in a way even he himself doesn't notice, and now Ianto has a secret that's even bigger than the Cyberwoman.
A/N: This story promises to get real long (due to the fact that I'm apparently not able to write anything with less than 10 chapters - unless it's an one-shot). It's not much yet, just the prologue, but I hope you'll enjoy it nevertheless (and tell me so ^_~).



TA scout ship V’exor

somewhere en route between Treena IV and the TA headquarters

24 May 5078


Jack paced behind the force field like a caged tiger. The small contained space didn’t allow for much movement and so this was the only way he could release some of his pent-up anger. The man on the other side of the force field watched him silently, not saying anything despite of the fact that it was him who had come to see Jack without being invited first. Not that Jack did have a choice in that matter.


“I want to know why,” he finally pressed out between clenched teeth.


“Why?” The other man blinked at him.


“Yes! Why?” Jack stopped directly in front of the man and glared at him angrily. “Why, Ianto? Why did you betray me?”


Ianto looked at him silently for a long moment, then he sighed. “I didn’t betray you, Jack.”


The force field was the only thing holding Jack back from punching Ianto. He knew first-hand that it was no use throwing himself against it. The field wouldn’t even flicker – it was constructed to hold way bigger and stronger species than humans – and it would hurt like hell. Although it was the first time that Jack was standing on this side of the force field.


“Oh? Well from this side of the containment field it looks exactly like that’s what you did!” Jack almost shook so angry was he. “You sold me to the Time Agency, for crying out loud! What did they pay you for that? I really hope it was enough!”


“They didn’t pay me anything.”


“So you’re doing it for free?” Jack stared at Ianto’s blank, emotionless face. “What is this then? Revenge? Because I shot Lisa? You figured you couldn’t kill me, so you settled for the second best?”


“This has nothing to do with Lisa,” Ianto answered, his voice cold like frosty wind. “It’s…” Ianto stopped and took a deep breath. “You wouldn’t believe me if I told you,” he finally said.


“Try me!” Jack said, but Ianto just shook his head silently. Jack stared at him for another moment, trying to read what was going on in that mind behind the cool mask, but after what Ianto had done he doubted he had ever been able to read the Welshman correctly. 

“Do you even have the faintest idea what they are going to do to me?” Jack finally whispered, hoping to appeal to some caring part inside this Ianto he suddenly didn’t know anymore.


Ianto closed his eyes for a moment, then he looked directly at Jack. “I know exactly what they are going to do to you,” he answered.


Jack narrowed his eyes, suddenly almost overwhelmed by fury and hatred. “If you think I’m going to forgive you like I did with your betrayals in the past, you are wrong,” he hissed. “I’ll never forgive you for this. And when I get out of here – and I will get out – I’ll hunt you down, no matter where and when you are. And then I'll kill you, Ianto, with my bare hands. Slowly. Painfully. You better believe it.”


Ianto stared at him for a long moment, a look of resignation, tiredness and hurt flicking over his face before it was arranged into the blank mask again. “I believe you, sir,” he finally said. Then he turned around and walked out of the containment area. Leaving Jack behind, alone in his prison.

Thanks! The Chibis were drawn by a friend - aren't they sweet? *cuddles ChibiJack and ChibiIanto*

There is more to come, just don't know when I'll be able to write chapter 1. Hopefully next week (if I can kick my lazy butt to do something *g*).
Aug. 26th, 2007 04:54 pm (UTC)
Oh dear, does Ianto realise what he has done?

More please... and soon.
Aug. 26th, 2007 05:00 pm (UTC)
Oh believe me, Ianto knows exactly what he has done. *mad giggle*

I can't make promises about the "soon", but I can promise there will be "more". ^_~
Aug. 26th, 2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
*whimpers* I really, really can't wait to see more of this! I'm on pins and needles now! :D
Aug. 27th, 2007 09:01 am (UTC)
Mission accomplished, then. That's exactly what I was aiming for. ^___^
Aug. 26th, 2007 05:24 pm (UTC)
I'm jumping on the 'more please!' bandwagon :D can't wait for your next installment!
Aug. 27th, 2007 09:03 am (UTC)
Ok, ok, you've got me convinced. Chapter 1 will be up sometime this week. :-)

OOOOOOOOOOh, Evil Ianto? Maybe not, maybe the agenda will explain this maybe you will post the next part soon!!!
Aug. 27th, 2007 09:05 am (UTC)
So many maybes, so many questions, and I can't answer them! Well, of course I can, but I won't. :-P Except the part about the next part - sometime this week (can't say exactly when).
Aug. 26th, 2007 06:48 pm (UTC)
Ooooh this is very interesting!! I suspect something deeper is going on with Ianto, but I have no idea what, and I'm certainly looking forward to finding out!! Very much looking forward to the next part!
Aug. 27th, 2007 09:07 am (UTC)
Thank you, I'm glad you like it. Next part will be up soon.

Also ich hoffe Ianto hat wirklich einen SEHR guten Grund das zu tun. Aber ich glaube schon. So, wie er reagiert hat.
Hilft es, dich etwas anzutreiben mit, ich weiß nicht, Chibis bestechen um dich anzutreiben?
Ich warte!!!!
Aug. 27th, 2007 09:11 am (UTC)
Antreiben hilft immer. *g* Aber dann doch nicht die Chibis bestechen, sondern mich! Ich bin ja schließlich diejenige die die ganze Arbeit macht! Auch wenn die kleinen Monster natürlich anderer Meinung sind.

Und was Ianto angeht - natürlich hat er einen sehr guten Grund. Ianto hat IMMER einen sehr guten Grund für ALLES was er tut. Nur ob der Grund auch anderen Leuten (sprich den Lesern und Jack *g*) gefällt, das bleibt abzuwarten. *fg*
Aug. 26th, 2007 07:55 pm (UTC)
oh God PLEASE tell me there's a chapter coming up really soon.
Aug. 27th, 2007 09:12 am (UTC)
Ok. There's a chapter coming up really soon. Better now? ^_~
To be exact, sometime this week. *promise*
Aug. 26th, 2007 09:54 pm (UTC)
Ha, I think it was a very good idea from me to feed this bunny *g*

I still get goosebumps reading this, and I know what will happen. Go Zanna!
Aug. 27th, 2007 09:14 am (UTC)
You evil bunny-feeder. I hate you. As if I didn't have enough on my agenda. You are SO evil.

Well yes, there will be more. And even sometime this week. ^_^
Aug. 27th, 2007 02:20 pm (UTC)
oooo, very dramatic and dark. Love it.
Aug. 27th, 2007 07:25 pm (UTC)
Thank you! ^_^
Aug. 28th, 2007 11:43 pm (UTC)
Ooh. Consider me curious!

Thank you! I will! ^_^

Better late than never. Thanks for commenting. ^_^
Sep. 14th, 2007 08:19 pm (UTC)
