My first piece of fic in a while.

I have not written anything in a while. That is one of the reason I picked request foroz_magithat said art was ok because I was pretty sure I would not be able to come up with a story very long and that is just not that fair to who made the prompt in my eyes. But I was hit with some inspiration. The ending part to Laura by the Scissor Sisters hit me. The lyrics are

One face amodng the many
I never thought you cared
Seen enough stuff though i got rough
Now i know it ain't so
I gotta live my own


I tried to reference the lyrics with out coping them. It made me think about the end of season 1 of Torchwood at it led to this. This is my thought on what could have been going through Ianto's head before the beginning of Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. So here it is

Title: Moving On
Character: Ianto
Rating: G
Theme: a little Angst
Spoilers: Cyberwoman and End of Days
Disclaimers: Umm... you know the deal. I do not own them nor the song Laura.


I thought I was something special. I thought I was important. Now I know I’m just one face among the many. All this time I held on to a small drop of hope that I mattered. Hoped that maybe, just maybe you were starting to feel something for me. But after leaving us, leaving me, I can see it is all was false hope. I guess this is one of my character flaws. Not being able to see the truth about the ones I love. I refused to believe that Lisa was no longer human and almost died because of it. And now with you; thinking I was anything more than a part time shag. I use to think after all the things I have seen that it made me rough. That I was stronger than before; able to survive on my own. Now I know that it is not the case, but I have to move on. I have to live my own life because no one is going to live if for me.

A voice broke Ianto out of his inner monologue. "Ianto. Blowfish. Lets move."

I always seem to judge a drabble by asking myself "Do I want more?"
Well-- the answer is 'yes!' and I especially liked the abrupt transition from Ianto's musings to another voice.

Bravo, babe.

Thanks. Glad it did not fail miserable. Hopefully I can continue building on this little burst of inspiration and getting something a little longer in the near future.

I hope you can, too. I'm always looking for something interesting to read, especially if it's written by someone I know.

Maybe I should send you one of my more off the wall short stories?
How about the ghost groupie?
Or the Patrick Swayze impersonator?

(You are totally allowed to politely decline!)

So far it has been going good but it has only been a few Oz drabbles. Maybe if I just stick to 100 words and never worry about a real plot I will be good.

Ghost groupie?! Oh you so have to send me those stories.

I should probably read it over myself before I e-mail it to you. But you did like the 'defenestration' prompt you gave me, so I think you'll like this one.

*Makes note to re-read and send to co-founder of BSTV.*

*blushes*

It WAS fucked up, wasn't it?
I had such a good time writing it.

But it takes the right prompt.

It was very and all the little inside jokes in the piece made it so much more enjoyable. I am sure to most people Princess Diary boobies would not make them but out laughing. Me on the other hand it does.

Seriously... now whenever I see Anne Hathaway, that's the first thing I think of!

I watched about 10 minutes of the Golden Globes and when they zoomed in on her, I went "Princess Diary Boobies!"

My friend who was here at the time was somewhat confused.

I tried to explain a couple of them to friends here but I think it just made them think I was crazier than I already am.

I think we just have to accept the fact that some people will never get it.

Sad, but true.

I do not know. I think if we beat them long and hard enough they will finally come to their senses. And if not it will make a good work out.

Dude, those titanium sticks are going to be extremely useful...

And a much better way to exercise than fucking Pilates.

We can make an exercise video and sell it. Not only will we get in shape and get to hit people we will make money off of it too. It is so a win/win situation.

Your ability to come up with great ideas impresses me more all the time. That's pure friggin' genius.

I am in awe...
