Ianto's ring [May. 4th, 2014|06:56 pm]
Torchwood Story Finder
Hey there!

So, here's the thing. I have read somewhere (totally don't remember if it was tumblr or some article or if it was a part of fanfic) this thing, where after Ianto's funeral Gwen gives Jack this ring where is engraved "Don't forget me" and Jack keeps it and wears it in his vortex manipulator wrist band.

Now I was thinking about using this part in my Janto fanfic I am currently working on, but ONLY if it is canon (I mean you know, if it is from some TW book - I haven't read all of them yet, so I'm not sure - or something like that). If it is from some fanfiction, than of course I won't use it - I DON'T WANT TO STEAL someone's idea!

Anyway, if you know something about this, that would be cool :-)

Thanks forward!

I'm 99% sure that it's not canon, but I stopped watching/reading after Ianto's death
Yeah, not helping much I know

Thanks then. I just wish I knew where I've seen it ... I think it was on tumblr, but I have absolutely no idea the context it was in.

Nowhere in canon does Jack attend Ianto's funeral - the only canon ref to the funeral that I can recall is Gareth's story that was published in the Torchwood magazine. And even there, Jack didn't make an appearance.

I vaguely recall it from a fic - but can't recall where and I have been reading TW fanfic continuously since 2007.

According to the audio drama House of the Dead Jack did not go to Ianto's funeral. I hope that helps. I haven't really read any of the books post CoE or MD though so I don't know if could have been in one of those. Sorry if I'm not very helpful.

Thank you! You definitelly are helpful! :-)
I haven't heard House of Dead yet, not read all the books since I've started to watch TW recently with my bro and it is hard to organize the time of both of us to watch, so we are still just somewhere in the mid of season 2 I believe (plus we're watching DW alongside it so you can imagine how "fast" we are probably moving, lol). But I must admit I fell in love with the show instantly and I totally love the characters. Well nevermind then about that ring - though it bugs me a lot actually, lol. I will finish my story after I'll watch CoE anyway, because I don't know exactly everything that will happen and how it will happen and I sure don't want to skip episodes just to finish the story, so it's okay. Maybe while I finish my story I will eventually find the answer to my question (:
