Ianto smiling, while Gwen telling him how hopeless Owen is (Torchwood 2x05 “Adam”)
with his own amazing personality
And even though Jack/Ianto are soooo good
He on his own is enough <3
I wish the second GIF had been this:
Jack is a military man. Lisa was his responsibility and his mess to clean up. I get it. Also, would it be better if Jack had immediately killed her himself? No,Ianto would’ve seen it as cold murder. Ianto needed to understand. He needed to see for himself what he did. It may be tough, but it was not unnecessary.
But that’s just my opinion.
Ianto Jones (Torchwood)
“I clear up your shit. No questions asked and that’s the way you like it. When did you last ask me anything about my life?”
I just adore the fact that Ianto never openly defined his sexuality.
Head canon: if he learnt something from Jack, it has to be to not put everything in neatly checked off boxes and just enjoy the moment. Screw labels, and just enjoy what is happening.
Ianto’s worst ever birthday party had included a food fight.
Watching drunken, rowing parents throw trifle at each other in a screaming fury while he gathered his friends to him, shielding as many as possible from being hit by a stray pickled onion. He never ever wanted to see that much mess covering so many people again.
