This Glorious Sadness
Fandom: Torchwood/Dr Who
Chapter number if WIP: Undefined. I'm also working on a piece called "Let Me Be Empty" which picks up immediately after "Children Of Earth" and explains where Jack fled at the end of Season Three. There is a slight possibility that that piece may work into this story line creating a series, or it may go off into something entirely different. If these two do merge, there could well be several pieces with Jack falling farther and farther into his personal hell that develop to this point...we will have to see
Characters/Pairing: The arc offers lots of possibilities, but lets say Jack/Ianto, Jack/John H, Jack/Ten
Portrayed by John Barrowman/Gareth David-Lloyd, John Barrowman/James Marsters, John Barrowman/David Tennet
Rating: FRM for mental destruction
Summary: A broken Jack Harkness is discovered in a slave market
Warning: angst, depression, slavery
Prompt: Only prompt for this is a need for answers to what now?
Previous chapters or series at: Again undetermined
