So. You've stumbled across JackxIanto or rather The Sheep Shagger and his Yank. This Community is dedicated to the pairing of Captain Jack Harkess and Ianto Jones in the new sci-fi series Torchwood. In here you can find anything to do with this pairing: Video clips of the evidence in the show for their relationship, fan-fiction, fan-art, fanvids, general views on the pairing- Anything so long as it's to do with Jack and Ianto.
So for everyone who hasn't heard of this show- What is torchwood?
Torchwood was originally an idea of writer Russell T Davis (writer of Queer as folk) He thought of it just before he wrote the new series of Doctor who. The tapes of this series were labelled "Torchwood" so they weren't stolen, a clever idea as Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who. The Torchwood institute was founded by Queen Victoria to defend the British Empire against hostile alien life. There have been four institutes and the series takes place in the last institute. There have been two seasons, both shown on BBC TWO and BBC Three
Let me introduce you to the two characters in this fandom.
Captain Jack is the omnisexual character from Doctor Who. He's from the 51st century and travelled with the Doctor and Rose, becoming more heroric and falling in love with the doctor before he died in their battle aboard the Gamestation. He was brought back to life but was left at the Gamestation. Jack is now the leader of the group at Torchwood, it is as yet unknown how he got there and there is also a lot of confusion about his past. One particular note is that Jack cannot die now and has the present Doctor's hand in a jar, probably to try and discover more about his own regeneration. During the finale of the first series he abandoned Torchwood to run after the Doctor, but returned to find his team stronger. After the second series we found out a lot more about his past and about his brother.
Ianto jones works at the Torchwood institute, he's the receptionist of sorts and as Jack so eloquently put it, "Looks rather good in a suit." He recently stowed away his girlfriend who was partially turned into a cyberwoman under the institute. He joined Torchwood with the intent of hiding her there, but has now become stronger and a vital member of the team.
So why this pairing? Well, aside from all the flirty remarks between the two, there is also a feeling of loss with both. The characters have lost people and also have very contact with the outside world (both appear to live IN the institute) Also. How many kisses of life involve tongue and so much enthusiastic mouth movements/neckstrokage. And we have canoical romance between the pair! Canon slash! How many fandoms have half naked snogging and accepted flirting by the rest of the team? IT'S CANON. DEAL WITH IT.
