“I crown thee King Jack of Torchwood.” Donna proclaimed proudly for all to hear as she placed the royal crown upon Jack’s head. Ianto, in his rightful place at Jack’s side, smiled at his new husband.
It had been a great time of joy and celebration in the kingdom of Torchwood. Their beloved princess, Donna, once lost, had been returned to them; their new king was kind and caring and today was both a crowning and a wedding.
Jack and Ianto shared tender, loving smile before looking out at their friends and family in attendance. The TARDIS crew was right in front, cheering their hearts out for them. Martha and Tosh were cozied up together looking like a couple very much in love. Surprising was the fact that Ross was tucked possessively against the Doctor’s side, and given the ugly glare Rose was giving those two men, it was clear that Ross had followed his heart. For a moment, Jack felt very sorry for Rose; in her greed, she’d been left with nothing.
Jack had been surprised and happy to see Rory among the guests, standing next to a smiling man in a bowtie, who he and Ianto later learned was a cousin to the Doctor. Even Wilf, the perpetually grouchy gap guard, had shown up out of the blue; “Always knew there was more than an empty field beyond that bloody wall,” he had gruffly informed anyone who would listen.
Donna smiled at her son and new son-in-law and handed them a beautifully wrapped box. “My gift to you, to both of you,” she told them before backing into John Harkness’ loving arms. Jack had been inordinately pleased when his parents had made it abundantly clear they were together, forever. His mother was just the fire his dad needed to rekindle his life.
Opening the gift they were shocked to find a whole Babylon candle, its wick unburned and as white as snow, nestled safely inside. “Thank you.” Ianto whispered his thanks to Donna. One day, he would show Jack the wonders of his celestial home and all the beauty the nights skies possessed.
They ruled for eighty years but no man can live forever, except he who possesses the heart of a star. And Ianto had given his to Jack completely. When their children and grandchildren were grown, it was time to light the Babylon candle.
In the highest tower of Torchwood castle two shadows were seen in the window, a candle was lit and then they were gone. Earthly human and heavenly star had become one, together forever.
High in the night sky the evening star returned and beside it a new star shining in time with him, both glowing joyfully and brightly over the kingdom of Torchwood for all of time.
And they lived happily ever after.
