"Rebecca" (written for reel_torchwood)


 

Title: “Rebecca”
Author: wanda1969
Prompt: “Rebecca”
Pairing(s):
Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones
Rating:
PG
Warnings: very occasional expletive.
ALSO, SOMEONE HAD TO BE MRS DANVERS...
Spoilers:
More for “Rebecca” (mainly the Hitchcock movie) rather than Torchwood
Disclaimer:
I have created no characters here: I have merely borrowed the Torchwood characters from the BBC & their creators. I have also borrowed the plot and some characters from Daphne Du Maurier and Hitchcock (and his scriptwriters). No copyright infringement is intended. In fact, I know this film so well, it was really hard for me not to completely ‘quote’ it...I hope I have paraphrased where necessary.
Author's Notes: Torchwood characters shoehorned into “Rebecca”. Written specifically for the reel_torchwood challenge.

This is closer to the Hitchcock film than the book. I’ve also added an Epilogue which is a bit like one of the first chapters of the book, but at the end- THE EPILOGUE  IS THE ONE TO NOT READ IF YOU WANT TO STOP WHERE THE FILM DID. I’ve deviated from the book by (mainly) not writing in the first person, and also by allowing the “second Mrs De Winter” to have a ‘name’.

My aim was for romantic drama/suspense in the 1930s film/book stylee mixed with a bit of modern fanfiction (this is set in the modern day).

Many, many, many thanks to the very lovely and patient janiemc for both beta-ing and putting up with me...I am painfully pedantic. Sorry Janie! I am not PC savvy enough to know how to make your name into an ‘lj link’!

Here is the link to my lj account (hopefully!!!):
