Summary: Ianto is a powerful magical warrior, one which Jack Harkness has never been able to resist. Once enemies, then almost lovers, he broke his heart. Years later, Jack must return to his hometown and seek help before it is too late. Jack and Ianto must now put aside their past and work together to defeat an evil threatening to overwhelm and take control of Jack because of his unique bloodline. Secrets and foretold prophecies will plague them and in this paranormal battle, they will need more than magic to survive.
A/N: Written for the Long Live Ianto Big Bang Challenge. I am going to post a few chapters a week for those who like to read it on LJ/DW but there is a PDF available here The Ties That Bind. This is of course, purely fiction as we all know and as I am not a native of Wales or in fact the UK, my knowledge is extremely lean at best, so please forgive any irregularities in locations or distances as the story unfolds. Many thanks to Martina and Paula for their assistance.
Disclaimer and further notes: Not mine, just playing around. That said, this is not entirely of my own creation but it has evolved as an adaptation from a recent piece of fiction I read, just like we do with Reel Torchwood, and the previous supernatural one I did. And just like that one, I have added some other stuff to suit the boys in an AU situation with lots of shameless, cracky/smarmy (choose your synonym) and over the top cliché moments—and there are many. So, if this is not your thing, don’t read it, and if you do, grin and bear the crack and smarm because I know you all secretly love it anyway. I do like to hear your thoughts but please be constructive if you have anything negative to say about it and I will appreciate it as much as your kind words. This one has more violence and explicit sexual situations—although I’m sure that won’t bother any of you. J
Much love to miss_bekahrose for her amazingly awesome work. And so much praise after putting up with my nitpicking and producing artwork that compliments this story so very well. Mwah!
