“Ah, now you’re tempted, aren’t you?” Moustache-man raised his eyebrows. “Ahhh. The luxury feel of jumbo cord on skin. So brown. So nice.”
“Well, seeing as how one of your bollocks still has the imprint of the maker’s name on it, from where he kicked you through the mouth organ and in the nuts….”
“Hey! Show some respect! That’s my Mr Hohner Extreme Note Bender you’re talking about!”
“That’s your left dangler, you mean. Anyway, so Stumpy says no. And, also, he says stay away from him - for the rest of your life, if not longer.”
Love it! I really like how you're building Howard and Ianto into similarly forlorn characters. *moves swiftly on to the next part*
I just had a proper read through of this, and there were about 20 typos. Oops, that's quite a lot, even for me. Fixeroo! That's what I get for not using a beta. Also, I don't think this is going to be one of my best, even though I loved writing it a lot. I think I'm trying to say far too much in it. Too much thought, not enough action.
Yeah, it was the similarity of Ianto and Howard that sparked this whole thing off. Both are always getting the raw deal from their other halves. Although I don't think Jack actually cheats on Ianto in Torchwood, beyond the odd kiss. But he's always rubbing Ianto's nose in his exes, and holding up the possibility. As for Vince, in series 3 he's a nightmare.
Of course, Howard and Ianto are both completely gorgeous, though very different types. There is that too. Put them together and my mind would blow.
