It didn’t take long to get everything arranged; Jack knew he was leaving the team in good hands with Neville in charge and the promise that they would only call for help if the world was an hour or so away from ending.
Ianto had his usual stoic mask in place but Jack knew his mate well enough to see the signs that he was nervous about meeting his true parents. Finished giving Neville the command codes that he would need Jack headed over to Ianto's side and wrapped his arms around him in a comforting hug. "It's going to be all right, Yan. I know they’re going to love you, how could they not? You're an amazing man, Ianto Jones," Jack whispered softly into Ianto's ear. “I know, because I love you.”
Jack could see the hint of vulnerability in Ianto's eyes as he smiled shyly up at him. "You really think so? But what if they don't like me? What if they decide that they're disappointed in me for the things I've done in the past and want nothing to do with me?"
It truly hurt Jack to hear Ianto be so unsure about himself. "Then screw them! I they can’t see how wonderful you are, then they’re not worth getting to know and believe me when I tell you it will be their loss. Never doubt yourself, Ianto, you are an amazing man, your heart is so big and caring and you love unlike anyone I have ever met. You make me want to be a better man, a man worthy of being your mate and the father of your children."
Ianto smiled as he rested his head on Jack's shoulder. "You are a good man, Jack Harkness, and I know that you will be an amazing father to our children. I'm proud to call you my mate just as I’m proud to carry your children."
"Much as I hate to break up this love-fest but it's time we get going." Puck truly did sound sorry about interrupting such a tender moment between the two mates but he wanted Ianto in the Fae Court and under Oberon’s protection as soon as possible.
"Right, kids, try not to end the world while we’re gone and do play nice with UNIT." Jack gave a cheery wave to his team as the others who were travelling with them joined him, Ianto and Puck, while Emily was carrying the slowly healing Zinc and Solara in her arms.
"Right, next stop the Fae Court!" With a snap of his fingers Puck and the others were instantly gone.
Those left behind stared at the spot where their friends had been and then the silence was broken by John clapping his hands together. When he had everyone’s attention, a wicked leer appeared on his face as he asked, "Sooo… orgy?"
It was a rare sight that Estelle and the rest of the court were being subjected to as King Oberon and Queen Tatiana restlessly paced the throne room. Not that anyone could blame them, though; this was a family reunion over twenty years in the making. Suddenly all the air seemed to be sucked out of the room as a popping sound filled the air and Puck and a small group of people appeared. Even though the assembled group was expected them, all eyes ended up glued to the two handsome men clinging to each other and one was clearly pregnant.
Ianto shifted slightly at Jack’s side; it was his only sign of nervousness as he stood in front of his real parents. Even though in his heart he knew that Remus and Sirius would always be his fathers and Emily his mother, he still wanted to get to know Oberon and Tatiana. He felt he owed them that much.
Tears welled up in Tatiana’s eyes as she stared at her son. “Oh Ianto, you’ve gotten so big. I can’t believe you’re all grown up and starting your own family.” The eternally graceful Queen of the Fairies wasted no time in crossing the distance between them and pulling her son into a gentle hug.
Oberon quickly followed his wife and wrapped both of them up in a hug of his own. "You have no idea how much we have longed for this day, my son. Can you ever forgive us for giving you away?" Oberon asked softly.
Both Oberon and Tatiana held their breaths as they waited for Ianto's answer. A small but true smile graced Ianto's face. "I can; you did what you had to do to keep me and my children safe from Saevar. Besides, if you hadn't I would never have met Jack." Ianto's eyes sought out Jack's and they shone with all the love he had for his mate.
Jack felt tears welling up in his eyes; he didn't know what he’d done to earn the love of this man but he knew he would do everything in his power to make sure Ianto knew just how much he loved him each and every day of their lives.
Oberon studied his soon-to-be son-in-law before reaching out and pulling a very surprised Jack into the family hug. "Thank you for loving and protecting our son when we couldn't," he whispered softly into Jack's ear.
"You have nothing to thank me for, Your Majesty. Ianto is my mate and I will die to keep him safe." Jack managed to wiggle one arm free from the bug so that he could reach out and grasp Ianto's hand in his.
Watching the family reunion Sirius felt a knot forming in his stomach as he watched Ianto be engulfed by his true parents. He felt like he was losing his little boy, first to Jack and now to the King and Queen of the Fairies; it was a pain that could only be matched by the agony he’d felt when he was ripped away from Remus and Ianto the first time so many years ago.
Remus rested a comforting arm around Sirius’ waist; of all people he understood his mate's pain all too well.
Ianto broke free of the hug and walked over to an oddly subdued Remus and Sirius; wrapping his arms around their waists, he smiled at them both as he proudly said to everyone, "These are my fathers, Remus and Sirius Black-Lupin. I’m the man I am today because of them and because of my mother, Emily."
Tatiana smiled at the two men Emily had chosen to raise her child, the love between the fathers and son was more than obvious. "We can never thank you enough for loving and raising Ianto into the wonderful man he is today. While we understand that we can never take your place as parents to Ianto, I hope you will allow my husband and me the chance to get to know not only Ianto but the two of you as well."
Instantly Remus could see where Ianto got his large and loving heart from. "It was our honour to be blessed with a son like Ianto and we look forward to getting to know you as well," and he sketched a small bow in Tatiana’s direction.
Jack's low and choked up voice had Ianto seeking out his mate in concern, and he followed Jack's gaze to rest upon an elderly woman standing next to Emily, a woman who Ianto knew had once meant the world to Jack.
Estelle smiled sweetly at her one-time love, so very happy that at last he had found someone who would stay by his side and never be taken from him. "Hello, Jack, you're looking as handsome as ever."
Jack moved towards her his fingers itching to reach out and touch her but afraid that this might be nothing but a dream. "But... how? They killed you!" Jack's voice choked as he recalled holding Estelle's lifeless body in his arms.
Understanding what was going through Jack's mind, Estelle placed her hand on Jack's cheek, relishing the way he leaned into her caress. "I am a member of Queen Tatiana's court and it was through her protection that I survived but at a price. I am now bound to the Fae Court and I shall live out the rest of my life with my precious Fae."
With a choked sob Jack engulfed Estelle in a tight hug. "I'm so glad that you're still here. It destroyed me when I thought the Fae had stolen you from me too soon," Jack whispered into her ear.
Ianto smiled as he watched the burden of guilt over being unable to save Estelle lift from Jack's shoulders. Every loved one that Jack was unable to save weighed heavily on the immortal and Ianto was glad that this was one he would no longer have to carry.
Time flew by as Ianto got to know his real parents and they in turn got to know not only their son but the group of people Ianto called family.
Their third week in the world of the Fae, Ianto went into labour a week early, much to a very panicky Jack, Sirius and Remus’ dismay but after Owen managed to calm them down by reminding them that with twins this could happen. One hour and one C-section later the halls outside of the delivery room were filled with echoing twin cries as Rhoswen Lisa and Kalen Grey Harkness-Jones made their much-longed-for arrival.
"Oh Ianto, Jack, they're simple beautiful!" Tosh cooed as she looked back and forth between the purple bundle in Ianto's arms and the blue bundle in Jack's arms.
"Enjoy this time now because they’re Jack's kids and they'll be making trouble before they learn to walk," Owen added helpfully. "Oww! Will you stop hitting me, woman!" he grumbled in vexation as he rubbed the back of his head where Tonks had whacked him.
"You forget they’re half Ianto and that they could be the best behaved children ever; it's when they get older that I'd worry about." Jack's eyes narrowed as he studied his son's angel looking face. 'Next time I see you, Doctor, you’ll be getting a very long and detailed talk about what I will do to you if you hurt my son in any way. That goes for the Master as well.'
Sensing his mate's growing murderous rage Ianto rested his head on Jack's shoulder and the effects were instantly noticeable as all thoughts of the two Time Lords who would someday claim their children as mates faded from Jack's mind as he brushed a kiss on to an exhausted Ianto's forehead. "I think it's time for Taddy to get some much-needed sleep."
Remus gentle lifted his granddaughter, Rhoswen, from Ianto's arms as he too brushed a kiss across his son's forehead. "I'm so very proud of you, son."
Sirius smiled at Jack as the immortal reluctantly handed over his newborn son, but Jack knew that they would be safe with their grandfathers because his place was at Ianto's side.
"You did good as well, son."
Jack's eyes widened in shock as the words fell from Sirius's lips. "Thanks, d… dad." At that moment, Jack knew that Sirius had finally accepted him as Ianto's mate and as a part of their family.
A giant smile graced Luna face as she watched the new little family, 'A great destiny awaits the two of you. There will be good times as well as bad, times filled with love and happiness and moments of pain and suffering. But in the end it shall all be worth everything you must go through and all the challenges your fathers' must still face.' Luna knew that there were still battles to fight and challenges to overcome, the worst of which was Saevar. The Dark Lord was still a very dangerous threat and would remain so until he was permanently dealt with.
'But that is not important; soon the Hub will be filled with the joyous pitter-patter of tiny feet from the next generation of protectors.' Under her breath Luna began to hum an ancient lullaby; perhaps more than anyone else involved, she looked forward to the new surprises that were on their way. Things in Torchwood were about to change again.
