Title: Seriously Jack, don't read it

Fandom: Torchwood
Prompts: Diary, Butt, Breakdown
Challenge: fan_flashworks 231 (amnesty)
Characters: Mostly Ianto Jones and Jack Harkness
. Others make an appearance...
Length: 1615

Content notes:
Lots of angst, quite some fluff, stopwatch of course. No smut… M/M relationship in the (very) slow build.
Author notes:
Vying for the Complexity Theorist Badge…once again — 3 more to go!
The very first piece of fanfic I ever wrote was Ianto’s Diary, which you can read here on AO3. Going back to that has been quite the trip down memory lane. I’ve been watching “They keep killing Suzie” again and realized I was probably completely wrong about the time line of Ianto/Jack’s relationship but never mind, I still like what I came up with very much. So here is a new piece to add to it, written especially for the challenge, this time more in Jack’s POV. I hope you enjoy it!
Factoid about the meaning of Ianto: I found that on some crap French website about baby names and nowhere else. It had some vague predictions about what the baby’s character would be like if called Ianto and it fitted Jones pretty well so I decided to go with it.

"If you're interested ... I've still got that stopwatch."
"Well, think about it. Lots of things you can do with a stopwatch."
"Oh, yeah. I can think of a few."
"There's quite a list.”
“I’ll send the others home early, see you in my office in… ten.”
“That’s ten minutes, and counting.”
This is everything you ever wanted to know about what really happened next :)
Seriously Jack, don't read it )
