Five Months Later
Frozen in place on the steps down to Ianto’s Archives, Neville was never more thankful that his lover had actually come up with a potion to help keep Jack's overly enthusiastic primal side in check than he was at that moment. 'Still, while it keeps the urge to rip apart anyone who looks at Ianto with even a hint of lust in their eyes down to a minimum, it be nice if it would also controlled their sex drive,' Neville thought to himself.
As Ianto's soft moans of erotic pleasure drifted up from the Archives, Neville debated whether to continue forward or come back in a while. 'Why was I sent to collect them again?' The others all said it was because Jack didn't see him as a threat to his relationship with Ianto, especially not with his own surprisingly possessive lover. Somehow Severus and Jack had managed to come to some kind of gentleman’s agreement that since neither of them had any interest in the other lover it would be fine for Neville and Ianto to be around one another without problems.
Sirius, Remus and Emily didn't dare seek out Jack or Ianto when they were off on their own, but that was specifically because they absolutely did not want to see their son in the throes of passion. Ianto was well into his fifth month which meant that his lithe body was starting to show an adorable baby bump, and it seemed that seeing and smelling a pregnant Ianto made Jack even hornier than before, if that were possible.
Ianto’s strong pregnancy hormones were a powerful aphrodisiac to Jack’s heightened 51st century sense of smell, which meant that he simply could not keep his hands off his mate. Nowadays it didn't surprise anyone for Jack to be in the middle of talking to someone, or explaining something to UNIT, or even talking the Queen – thankfully that had only happened once – when he would lay eyes on Ianto and nothing else would matter. The immortal would drop everything to swoop Ianto up into a passionate kiss and then carry him off to the closest somewhat private area and make love to him, previous task completely forgotten.
Sucking up his courage, Neville straightened his shoulders and continued downstairs. He wasn't surprised to find Jack and Ianto in the corner of the Archives that connected I&J together. It was their favourite spot after all plus, it was in a blind spot of the CCTV coverage, which meant Tosh couldn't record their private moments together. Well, not the one’s in the Archives, anyway...
Shuffling his feet loudly and coughing every few steps, the young wizard tried to announce his impending arrival, hoping against hope that Jack and Ianto would show a modicum of shame and cover themselves up. ‘Who am I kidding? This is Jack we’re talking about!’ "Um, I hate to interrupt but Tosh says she's getting some weird readings and she liked you to check them out," Neville called softly making sure to keep his eyes firmly averted from the display of bare conjoined flesh being displayed. “She says it really can’t wait till you... um...”
Jack grunted as he turned their bodies, using his to protectively shield Ianto from Neville's gaze even though the other man was steadily and obviously staring at the wall ahead of him. When Jack made no further effort to communicate, Ianto became the voice of reason. "All right, Neville, tell her we'll be right up."
Jack grunted a second time and buried his face in Ianto’s neck, licking that extra-sensitive spot behind his ear. As much as it pained him to stop, he knew that they had to focus on saving the world and not one pleasuring his mate. “We’ll finish this later,” Jack purred against Ianto’s mouth as he stole a quick kiss.
Accepting the kiss and returning it with interest, Ianto smiled shyly at Jack, seeing the love shining in his mate’s eyes. He knew that no matter how long they were together, he would never get use to knowing that this amazing man was his. “Count on it, Sir,” Ianto whispered back huskily knowing the effect that one little word always had on Jack.
Just as Ianto hoped a throaty groan escaped Jack’s lips as the immortal glared at his oh-so-innocently smiling Welshman and Jack growled out in a gutted tone, “You’ll pay for that later, little boy; you know what that word does to me.”
Ianto’s smile grew naughtier and he couldn’t resist teasing his lover some more, “I look forward to it, Sir.”
‘Whatever caused these readings is going to regret interrupting my alone-time with Ianto,’ Jack vowed in silent vexation; if it wasn’t someone or something very peaceful they would suffer the wrath of a frustrated and horny Jack Harkness.
As the two men in front of him began snuggling and rubbing against each other again and Neville was beginning to wonder if they had forgotten he was there. “I’ll go... Um... I’ll just go inform the others that you’re... uhhh... coming, as it were; join us when you’re ready.” He spun on his heel and disappeared around the corner.
Jack chuckled as Neville made a quiet but hasty exit. “I knew there was a reason I liked Neville,” he calmly informed Ianto and his smile turned into a large pout as he watched as Ianto cover up his body, but then his eyes firmly locked on the slight swell of Ianto’s belly and his smile returned. ‘My gorgeous Welsh baby is having our own babies.’ It had been a surprise and a shock when earlier that morning, Emily and Owen had informed them that Ianto was caring twins.
One look at Jack and Ianto knew that his lover was a second away from saying ‘screw whatever has come up’ and jumping him all over again right there between I&J. “Jack, we better join the others.” Ianto finished buttoning up his shirt, pecked his sulking lover on the mouth and then took his hand in his, knowing if they didn’t make the effort to move he would end up jumping Jack himself.
Grumbling sullenly under his breath every step of the way, Jack threw his clothes back on before allowing Ianto to lead him out of the Archives and back into the real world. ‘I hate you, real world; why do you always have to interrupt my naked Ianto time?’ Jack asked silently as he shot a quick glare up at the ceiling towards whatever was listening. ‘It’s just not fair!’
Stepping through the door of the TARDIS, John looked around him with undisguised revulsion. "So this is where Jack ended up. Could he have chosen a more boring time?" The former Time Agent winkled his nose in distaste as the scent of the human race reached his nostrils. "This Ianto must be a damn fine piece of arse to keep him tied here."
John Hart did not want to be in the 21st Century, not when there was a three-breasted beauty on Tantan II that he hadn’t introduced himself to yet. But after his ex’s adorable twins had successfully tracked him down he’d found it hard to say no to either one of them and he’d certainly enjoyed flirting with Kalen. John had discovered early on how easy it was to throw the Doctor into a complete tizzy fit as the young Fae returned his blatant advances. Despite the stupidity and insanity of antagonising a powerful, nine hundred-year-old being, John found the challenge an erotic rush.
In the end it had been Rhoswen who’d reminded the trouble-maker of his family loyalty to the Fae court. ‘I would still like to know how that little cutie figured out my bloodline.’ While Kalen was a flirt and charmer John knew that it was Rhoswen he had to watch out for. She had a cunning mind as well as stunning looks; after all, she’d managed to win the heart of the Master.
Despite all his Time Agency training, John was never one to have any patience and so instead of waiting for Jack and his little merry band of Torchwood buddies to track him down as Rhoswen and the Doctor had suggested, he’d decided that it was always more fun to get Jack all riled up. Smirking broadly, he fiddled with his wrist strap, activating its communications function and given his previous experience with his former partner, he really wasn’t surprised when Jack didn’t answer; still, it wouldn’t hurt to leave a message.
“I would ask what you could be doing that’s more important than me but I’ve heard about your new piece of eye candy, who by the way I can’t wait to meet. Come and find me, stud, we have something important to talk about and it involves your pregnant mate.”
John knew the moment he mentioned Ianto’s pregnancy it would set off a time bomb within Jack just as he knew that his ex would hunt him down to find out what he knew about Ianto. Finally, John knew that if he proved to be any threat whatsoever to Ianto, Jack wouldn’t hesitate to take him out if it meant keeping Ianto safe.
“Well I’ve been itching for a good fight.” John snarked as he rolled his shoulders; he knew Jack well enough to know that he would come in fists swinging and looking for a fight. “Bring it on, Jackie-boy, bring it on.” John cracked his knuckles in anticipation.
In the Fae Courtyard
The woman once known as Estelle Cole watched Queen Titania with a heavy heart; it wasn't easy seeing her Queen suffer and being unable to ease her burden. "My Lady, is there anything I can do to help?" she asked as she approached the Queen of the Fairies.
Titania smiled as Estelle bowed to her. She had been outraged when the Dark Fae had dared to kill one of her loyal human followers and she had pleaded with her husband to grant Estelle a new life as one of the Fae. Oberon had been in awe of Estelle's unwavering belief in them and he was sad to see such a bright light destroyed by the Dark Fae and he'd immediately granted his wife's wish.
A thought struck the Queen and she motioned for Estelle to join her. Nervously, the fairy settled at Titania's feet and folded her wings about her. When Estelle was settled, the fairy queen said, "Tell me about Jack."
Estelle smiled, her nerves instantly calmed; talking about Jack Harkness was a true pleasure that she didn't often get to indulge. "Jack is one of a kind, Your Majesty. He has his secrets and he guards his heart furiously, I think because it hurts too much when he loses those he loves. But his heart is far too big and when he loves someone, he loves them very deeply." Estelle's beautiful eyes lit up and her face softened as she looked back. "Even though Jack knew that at my advanced age, he would eventually lose me he still sought me out under the guise of being his own son. I know in my heart that Jack Harkness is a good man, my Queen, and I have no doubts that he loves your son more than anyone he's ever loved before.”
As far as Tatiana was concerned, Estelle's belief in Jack underscored the most important thing, that Ianto was truly loved.
Jack Harkness was clearly in a pissed-off mood; the last person he ever wanted to see again had just shown up in his city and worst of all, he knew about his pregnant lover. Jack also knew there was no way he couldn’t not meet John but there was no way in hell he was taking Ianto along with him and that thought made him grin happily. Leaving his sexy mate at home would not be a problem, as Ianto was strictly off field duty until long after their children were born.
In fact, and Jack hadn't brought this up to anyone yet, especially not with Ianto, but he was hoping to make his mate's temporary status permanent. While there was no doubt in his mind or his groin that Ianto looked incredibly hot welding a stun gun and going all badass on a variety of ne'er-do-wells, the only kind of danger Jack wanted to him in now was from dirty nappies.
Still, the immortal knew that there was no way Ianto would feel comfortable with him running out alone to meet an ex, and the fact that right now Jack was willing to put a bullet through John if he so much as uttered a threat of any kind against Ianto wasn't enough. Giving in to pressure Ianto didn't even know he was yielding, Jack turned to his future father-in-law “Remus, feel like coming with me to collect our guest?” The pure and absolute disdain in Jack’s tone spoke volumes about how much he detested the new player.
“I would love to.” A wolfish grin appeared on Remus' face as he anticipated the fun he was going to have if this man did prove to be a threat to Ianto. 'Moony, my old friend, you may well get to come out and deal with this interloper.'
“If you’re going to threaten him then there's no way in hell you two are leaving me behind.” Sirius spoke up sharply and crossed his arms over his chest; the look on his face dared either one of them to tell him no.
Ianto was quite annoyed that once again he was being talked about as if he were invisible, and from his usual seat on the Hub's sofa, the father-to-be huffed out a deep sigh as a weary look appeared in his eyes. Setting aside the file he'd been working on, he studied his lover and his two fathers. He didn't need to see the look in all three sets of eyes; the simple fact that they were willing to work together spoke volumes: they were looking to hurt someone.
“Neville, I think you should go with them.” Ianto trusted his friend to keep a level head and not let the three older men get out of control. ‘Plus I’ve seen Neville in warrior mode and he can be a real badass. He stood up to Voldemort and that took real courage, so I’m sure he'll have no problem in keeping these three under control.’ Ianto smirked as he thought about Jack and his dads being cowed and controlled by deceptively mild-mannered Neville Longbottom.
In the months since he'd joined Torchwood Neville had proven time and time again that he was no push-over when it came to standing up for what was right. Jack had been so impressed with the leadership skills he’d shown in the field and so enthralled by the tales of Neville’s leadership during his seventh year at Hogwarts that he'd been considering making Neville his third-in-command at the Hub and his second in the field.
Ianto, Tosh and Owen had all voiced their agreement and support for Neville's promotion, which made Jack very happy. He knew that as Ianto's pregnancy advanced, he would want to focus all his attention on Ianto which would make him a liability in the field. Having a clear-headed and courageous field second like Neville would go a long way towards keeping the entire team safe.
“Oh, come on! Neville never lets us have any fun.” Sirius whined as he pouted at his son. "He's even worse than you!" and then he yelped in pain as his husband walloped him upside the head.
"Don't say that!" Remus barked. "You'll make our son feel bad!"
Ianto actually burst out laughing at his father's antics. "Don't worry about it, Dad," he chuckled. "I'll just take it as a compliment."
Relieved by Ianto's reaction to the unexpected criticism, Jack nodded his head in agreement with Sirius; he didn’t want a baby-sitter either. He and John had a lot of unfinished business that called for a punch or ten he knew that Neville wouldn’t allow them to go in guns blazing. Like Ianto, he would actually want to find out what John wanted before allowing the first punch to be thrown and that was only if he thought John deserved it.
Ianto wasn’t above using his pregnancy hormone-enhanced secret weapon and he cleared his throat loudly. Once he had everyone's attention, he slowly let his eyes fill with tears and then, to the three men’s abject horror, Ianto Jones actually sniffled and let his lower lip quiver.
Knowing full well that Ianto was playing dirty, Draco watched the scene with an amused smirk on his face. “Ten says they cave in a second,” he whispered to his husband, reaching into his pocket and pulling out a wad of banknotes.
“No deal!" Harry shook his head. "We all know that the first sign of tears Jack is a goner and since Ianto got pregnant, Sirius and Remus are no different.”
Normally, Draco would have called it pathetic watching three men grovelling at the sight of Ianto’s tears but it was just too damned amusing to miss. "You're right,' he muttered as he stuffed his money back into his pocket.
The entire team fought back the urge to laugh as Jack instantly rushed over to weepy Ianto, threw his arms around his pregnant mate and peppered his face and head with kisses as he reassured him that he would behave and only hit John if he really deserved it.
“He gets that from your side,” Remus whispered as he watched his son favour Jack with a breathtaking smile.
“I know.” Pure pride filled Sirius as he replied rather smugly. "I seem to remember it working just as well on you a long time ago!" and he kissed the shocked look from his husband's lips.
Neville’s eyes narrowed as he took on a thoughtful look. “I think we should get in contact with Severus and ask him to come over with some Veritaserum; that will easily get the truth out of this John fellow with a minimum of violence.” He knew that Jack, Sirius and Remus would be on their best behaviour unless John really did threaten Ianto and then he had doubts whether there would be anything left of the man when they got through with him.
“That sounds like a good idea, Neville. Hermione, get a hold of Snape, tell him where to meet us. Owen, Draco and Harry, you’re with us.” Jack quickly issued his orders as he stole a quick kiss from his now smiling lover. ‘Damn little twat knows how to play me,’ Jack thought with a grin as he stared into Ianto’s gleaming eyes. Yep, there was no doubt about it; Ianto had him firmly wrapped around his little finger and the Welshman knew it all too well. ‘But I wouldn’t have it any other way.’ Jack beamed happily at his beloved mate.
From their hiding spot up in Myfanwy’s nest, Zinc and Solara had been keeping a close eye on the proceedings below them. “Do you think we should go with them?” he asked his mate
Resting on Myfanwy's broad back, Solara bit her lip as she considered what they'd just heard. “One of us probably should go just to make sure this John Hart isn’t a threat. Somehow he knows about our prince and that he’s pregnant.” Coming to a decision Solara slid gracefully from her dinosaur pillow and hopped to her feet. “I’ll go with our prince’s mate; you stay and watch over our prince.”
Zinc pouted as he watched his mate flutter out of their hiding spot and land on top of Jack’s shoulder; their magic kept them invisible from all others. “Why does she always get to go on the missions?” he turned to Myfanwy.
Myfanwy just stared at him and squawked something unintelligible but which was probably snarky before promptly turning around and ignoring him. Zinc huffed and stomped over to the other side of the aerie. “Women!” he muttered as he found himself a comfortable place from which to keep an eye on Ianto.
