Disclaimers: I don't own Torchwood or any of the characters. If I did, I'd take better care of them.
Summary: Jack and Ianto from the start. Up till just before Cyberwoman.
Beta: The amazing and tireless Rootesie. Naturally, I couldn’t stop messing with it. All mistakes are mine alone.
Notes: I wrote a first-time Jack/Ianto fic a million years ago. It assumed that they didn’t start shagging till after Cyberwoman. My opinion on the matter has changed since. Not that I think that either way is more “true” than the other. It’s all fiction. Making the assumption that Jack and Ianto got down and dirty while Lisa was still hiding in the basement naturally makes for a darker, angstier story. I had to get it out my system, and here it is. It seems it’s not only me; there have been a few of these stories recently. It must be a zeitgeist thing.
