Title: Never Enough. 
Author: Me. Or cookiesofkarma, whichever way you want to go.
Fandom: Torchwood.
Rating: All Ages.
Characters: Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones.

Author's Notes:
The first thing I've written in months. At least it's something though, right?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“When did we get to this point Jack? When did survivors stop being enough?”

Jack didn’t turn from the scene of destruction before him. Didn’t need to. He knew the sadness he’d see in those Welsh grey eyes. He watched Owen attend to those they’d managed to save from the jaws of death, but he couldn’t forget the others. The bodies now entwined with the metal, buried under the rubble, scattered about like ragdolls in the wreckage. Like candles snuffed out. Wasted possibilities and unlived opportunities. The stench of hopelessness was strong here.

“They were never enough, Ianto. And they never will be. Because there’s always death. Someone always dies.”

Ianto didn’t reply, just gazed forlornly across the scene. The silence sat between them, teetering on the edge of awkwardness, not quite comfortable. Somehow, Jack was glad. It didn’t feel right to feel at ease, not here. He wanted to be sad. As Ianto turned and walked away, he felt the guilt settle in his heart, making it heavy, making it ache. His eyes flicked across the corpses, not willing to linger, to invite the pain of loss in. He forced himself to focus on those they had saved, those who would live to see another day.

There were never enough.

My Weekend Is Made :D


Well lookee here, it's Porn Battle time! :D

I'M SO EXCITED!!! :D

This was intended to be Jack/John originally, but good old Bess refused to be ignored.

In those six months, Jack travelled the world in space and time...Collapse ).

Just re-posting to my journal, so I've got a copy. (:

John pushed him roughly into the alcove in the wall...Collapse )

I. Will. Write.


I have finally finished my Spanish work (for now). It's half seven here in snowy England, College has been cancelled again tomorrow, so I have writing time. I shall force words out, whether they're shit or not, because I know I have to.

I have an insane amount of unfinished fics:
  • John Hart Epic: 15,000 words, but a load of that is bollocks and needs cutting. Only about a quarter of the way through the actual plot. Will also need a beta when it gets near finished.
  • Two Torchwood Epics: Both total shite and not posted here, thank god. Tbh, I can't be bothered to finish them. They weren't especially well-loved over on the Teaspoon anyway.
  • Doctor Who Epic: Same goes for this. Possessed!Doctor is being very unco-operative.
  • Idris Hopper Epic: Luckily there's not much down for this one, aside from a few basic plot points. But there's a fascination I can't shake with a canon character that's not fully formed. So many opportunities.
  • About a million one-shots: These should be interesting...
 I will attempt to work on these. And I promise something new soon. Even I'm fed up of my mojo.

Mr Cookies is so intrigued by LJ that he's decided to join himself. mister_cookies is where he dwells. Fun times. Maybe I can get him to write fic...

Anyone else intrigued by John's 'important announcement' via Twitter this evening? Or is it just me? Either way, I'm refreshing the page every two minutes.

I'm sure I'll post again later. Too damn bored.


Bleh.


I am attempting to write. This makes me happyful, even though so far I've produced <100 words of Jack Harkness character study shit. I know I can do something about Jack/Alonso, with a dash of remember!Ianto, but I don't have the enthusiasm I need. Which leads to fail. Plus I really want to write John, in any way, shape or form. And het. I want to write het. Because I haven't for an unhealthily long time. My To-Do list grows longer by the day.

Sadness setting in, for no actual reason whatsoever. Which makes the sadness doubley worse, because I can't counteract it, because I don't know what's causing it. Sadness therefore ensues.

Feeling unenthusiatic about stuff now. Snowfall made me happy for about an hour, but then I remembered I had fuckloads of coursework due in for now, and I got all down again. I have been such a buzzkill today. And I couldn't even binge-eat successfully - I felt sick after less than a fifth of a small tub of ice-cream. It seems I'm just a failure at everything.

On the bright side, due to the snowfall, my bus may not make it to the village to pick me up, which means I get to stay home. However, I still have to get up, just in case. And knowing my luck, the bus'll make it. Bastard. If I'm feeling better, I'll update tomorrow. If I stay home, I'll probably force myself to write and end up feeling worse because I've written shite. Good times ahead (Y).

Anyway, it's half-past midnight and I have to be up at 7:30. Night all.

Cookies.

Schooling Equals Fail

 Do not want to go back to school. HALP!

I have, at this moment in time, failed to do any of my assigned work. Which should make for interesting meetings with teachers. Bad times.

Really really really need to change my layout now. Think I'll go on the hunt for a pretty one, because I'm fed up of this boring plain black. I'M HAPPY, DAMMIT! So away I go. Perhaps some pretty new icons needed too. Any recs, anyone? :D

SALT AND VINEGAR PRINGLES ARE SO FREAKING ADDICTIVE!

Want to write, but have absolutely no motivation whatsoever. I can't decide what to write! Need to watch things in order for mojo to return from wherever the hell it's gone.

Self-motivation to do anything - none.

Cookies needs to do her work. SHUSH!

Right, off to layout-hunt I a-go.

I'm Not Dead


So I'm alive! :D I don't even jest how far behind on coursework and stuff I am, so expect little to no fic of any sorts from me in the near future. I hear your sadness *lolz*.

However, I had a very fannish Christmas. Lovely lovely friends bought me a signed GDL... thingy, and a signed DT photo thingy. I love my friends so much. (Srsly, love <3)

I've managed to accumalate around £250, and can't now decide whether I need a new phone, a new camera, or something else entirely. I'm so indecisive. XD I'm plumping for the camera atm, but I'm really not sure. *confusion*

In other good news, I still have a few months before I fail all my exams. :D

Should also be going to Cardiff this summer, if my mother finally agrees. (Off to see the Ianto memorial, which will still be there!) Cannot wait until I'm 17 and can drive. Oh, the freedom. Conventions, here I come. :D

My writing mojo has, since 'Unrequited', flown off to Barbados, to enjoy tequilas and coconuts in the sun. Might have to force myself to crank some words out. The John Hart Epic still needs some work... Oh, ideas, ideas.

In news that cannot be classed as good nor bad, Mr Cookies (or equivalent, considering there is no marital contract) has found my LJ. I'm still waiting for the "OMG WTF?" part to come. (And I know he's checking this, so hello love. :P). Unsurprisingly, he's enjoying the NC-17 stuff. And was enquiring about the porn battles... XD

Anyway, I shall endeavour to post again, because being dead is extremely dull.

Hope the flist are well! :D
