Title: Opportunities/One door closes...and a window opens (24/24)

Rating: PG

Genre: AU! No aliens but some familiar names may still be used

Characters: Jack, Ianto, Estelle, Tosh

Summary: The holiday season is coming up and Ianto Jones is stuck without a job, with very little money and not too many prospects. So when he is offered a job for two weeks, he readily accepts. But this new job may become complicated when he realises that the man who broke his heart years before is the grandson of his new employer.

A/N: You can all stop hitting that refresh button now and plans for mass torturing it out of me. I decided to post earlier than planned this evening because you all asked so nicely. Here is the conclusion of this sometimes angsty and frustrating journey of Jack and Ianto—well the story, not them. In this final part we finally find out about that ‘bet’ and both men come to realise they both played a part in this journey in equal measure. 

Thanks to Blackcat1000 for assistance with the last several chapters and big thanks to everyone who read and commented. I may revisit at some point with a little Interlude from ‘that night’. Watch this space.

A/N: Second last chapter - *is sad* Jack comes to Ianto’s graduation and is going to get Ianto to listen whether he wants to or not. Thanks to Blackcat1000 again.

 

Also, a big shout out to all those who commented on the banners/artwork I did for A Time of Rest by miladydragon. If you haven’t read it, what are you waiting for?!

A/N: I thought I’d give you all a treat before I head off to work on this lovely and surprisingly sunny Friday morning. Enjoy. Any mistakes...bugger ‘em. It’s almost the weekend and I’m too excited to care. J In this part, it’s Christmas time at the Hub and James and Tosh make another appearance. Meanwhile, Ianto has a revelation that shocks him.

A/N: Sorting suits, hats and some of what Jack and Estelle discussed is revealed. Not very happy with this one because it has changed slightly from how it was originally going to be posted. Various comments up to now have given me other ideas to think on and add in. So, cheers for that and I just hope it goes off okay. And please forgive any mistakes, I’m buggered from a long day at work and now it’s time to sit down to tea.

A/N: Another chapter as a treat ... just because. In this part Ianto learns a little more about Jack, and while there isn’t actually a ‘dinner scene’, we can still infer it was barely tolerable—at least for Jack, but we find out the real reason Tosh was introduced to Jack, and there’s kissing, too. Oh, and Estelle wants to talk to Jack!

A/N: I know many of you really, really dislike Jack and think he is being an utter wanker, prick, arsehole, etc... I really hope you don’t end up hating him by the end. Let me say that there is more than meets the eye with Jack and I know the reason for the negative feelings is that we haven’t heard Jack’s side yet. There are all sorts of feelings on both sides and a history to be sorted. Give Jack a chance to redeem himself. Anyway, in this chapter Estelle’s friend comes over to visit and she’s an absolute charmer! And maybe a clue that all may not be as it seems about that night all those years ago.
