Fic: The Truth Is Rarely Pure

Title: The Truth Is Rarely Pure
Author: mercury_pheonix 
Characters/Pairings: Jack, Ianto, hinted at Jack/Ianto (if you squint)
Spoilers: Cyberwoman
Rating: M, for swears and a bucketload of angst.
Summary: "You really think that anyone is only skin deep, Ianto Jones? You scratch hard enough, there's always more to find." It is the night of blood and metal, and Jack is left alone in the Hub with a broken young Welshman. What happened in those hours we never see?
A/N: I set myself the challenge of getting Jack and Ianto from that last basement scene in Cyberwoman to the look that they share between each other in the Hub the next day. I wanted to understand that transition from the rage and grief of the night before, to the seeming grudging acceptance, not yet forgiveness, of the following day.

"All that time you were willing to risk so much, and all you could think about was how much you wanted someone else. I bet that hurt, didn't it? Every sly grope, every slutty look, each one reminding you of just how being in love isn't's never enough..."
