Summary: AU of the ending of They Keep Killing Suzie in which Jack doesn’t go down to the autopsy room and thus doesn’t engage in that stop-watch conversation with Ianto. Instead he hides away in his office, forcing Ianto to seek out his boss and ex-lover and perhaps re-evaluate what they mean to each other. Perhaps what was lost really can be found again.
A/N: Written for a prompt won by mcparrot . She requested Hurt/Comfort where Jack is the one who is hurting. Hope it’s what you were looking for! (Title is from the My Chemical Romance song, Save Yourself, I’ll Hold Them Back.)
