Killing two birds with one stones

badtyler mentioned that youtube videos might be working for her and I told her that I would post one and see. But instead of posting any video in particular I felt like being a little dorky. I have known about this song for a while and it hit me that it could be a Ianto song. I was rewatching Meat with one of my friends. After the first scene at the warehouse she mentioned that there was a lot of sexual tension in this show. I had to agree with here. I also added that I was glad that Ianto was around to see them all up on each other. I know Captain Jack is a flirt hell I am but there comes a point when you need to draw a line and not cross it. And to me I felt like it was crossed in my humble opinion. I think this song fits in from Ianto's point of view watching the flirting between Jack and Gwen.



I never, said I'd lie and wait forever
If I died we'd be together now
I can't always just forget her
But she could try

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are never coming home
Never coming home
Could I?
Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever ever...

Ever...
Get the feeling that you're never
All alone and I remember now
At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies
She dies

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are never coming home
Never coming home
Could I?
Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I?
Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna catch me

If I fall
If I fall
Down

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are never coming home
Never coming home

And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I...
Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna...

Who is this band (and I'll probably go duh! when you tell me).

I think the whole Jack/Gwen thing is up for interpretation. She annoyed the crap out of me in that ep for some reason. And while I'll agree Jack flirted with her in the first few eps of season one...after that I never got the feel that he was "oh, I'd love to shag you senseless...."

It's My Chemical Romance.

It has always seemed to Jack still had some feelings towards Gwen that was more than just friends. They way that he reacted to her getting engaged and the whole scene in Meat where he stopped her from going after Rhys. Just seemed that he was feeling something stronger than friendship between the two of them.

MCR...got it! I probably have heard this song before...my daughter used to listen to that band a lot.

Oh,I totally agree Jack has feelings for Gwen, but he never acted on them, he respects her...I mean, the way Jack is presented as this 'intergalactic playboy' type....yet he never acted on anything with her. In fact, he kept telling her to maintain her life outside of Torchwood -- and I think that always meant her relationship with Rhys. He respected what she had with Rhys, and therefore, never persued a physical relationship with her.

The way his character was presented, it wouldn't have been out of the norm for him to take her to his bed...but he never did. And I really just can't see where he wanted that with her. So his reaction to her engagement just was a WTF moment for me, because he never had her in any way, shape or form (other than the flirting, there was no indication to me that there was anything more to it than that, neither one acted on whatever feelings were there) to be as upset as it looked like he was. I just don't get it.

And that scene in Meat where he grabbed her against the wall? My take is that he was just preventing her from doing something stupid...I don't blame her for being concerned about Rhys....but she was about to blow their hiding from those guys and ruin the whole mission....

I just never saw anything more than friendship between them, but that's just me. And I know I'm in a *very* small minority in thinking that.

I agree with you 100% that he never acted on them nor would he ever as long as she was in a relationship with Rhys. Jack is a major horn dog but he does respect people's relationship. You can see in the episode Captain Jack Harkness when the real Jack's girl friend shows up our Jack is not acting like his normally flirty self. Hell he even talks the real Jack in to giving her a kiss before she leaves and tells him that he should be spending the night with her when he sees him later in the episode.

Too me those scenes still have a bit of un resolved sexual tension between them. Now I think it will never go past tension, thankfully, but it is still there in some of their scenes.

It also might be because I updated my Adobe Flashthingie.

In any case... WHEW!

Exactly... I'm just happy that I'm not missing out on all the fun.

Have you gotten any interesting e-mail lately?
Just curious... heh.

Nothing to out of the ordinary. I did get one asking if I want to make my breast a cup size larger. But I think they are just fine the size they are. Any bigger and they would look fake.

Yes, and God forbid, you wouldn't be able to squeeze into that leather teddie I was kind enough to let you keep!
Princess Diary boobies!

Just kidding-- I meant the card. If you can actually call it a card.
But I got your email, so I know you did get it.

My work is done.

Re: IT WORKS!
I look sexy in a teddie. I ended up wearing a bar last night. I think it should be weird that I have no problem when it comes to dressing in drag but I do not think it is.

I have to say that I would give that card out to everyone. It speaks the truth.

Re: IT WORKS!
Why should it be a problem?
GLOBAL WARMING is a problem.

You in a teddie?
NotSoMuch.

That card would make some people cry.
Heh.

Oh come one we all know that Global Warming is a liberal conspiracy. It's all just junk science I tell you. All the answers to all of our problems can be found in the good book. ;)

You gotta give it to Jack, he is not afraid to show who he is, but that doesn't mean he would use Gwen or others. I really believe he has some unsolved issues with Gewn.

I agree with you. I do not think that Jack would ever use any of his team mates. I am looking at the song more from Ianto point of view with situations between Jack and Gwen that are kind of approaching the line from friendship to something else. Now I think of it the song could work with a few other characters like Captain John and the real Jack. Basically to me the song was more about the un intentional hurt caused by seeing someone who is supposed to have feelings for you showing the same feelings towards someone else.
