I Promise, Ianto by Mad-Hattie I Promise, Ianto by Mad-Hattie
I will not die
I’ll wait here for you
I feel alive
When you’re beside me…
I will not lie
I'll wait here for you
In my time of dying...


*Remind me never to paint shadow scenes with watercolors again. But I’ve been meaning to do this one for a while; it seemed easier than pencils.


I wish I could move on to a different fandom. This one hurts so much, but I can't seem to leave. And it's not just "oh, it makes me sad," it's full-on spiteful misery.


Torchwood(c) BBC, the merciless Davies, etc.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry I accidentally spoiled it for you! If you're only on episode 8 at least you have ages, like a couple seasons, and he survives the longest out of the ones who...okay maybe I should stop talking now. I don't know, it's sometimes a bit of a relief to be prepared just so it doesn't sneak up on you...and I know it snuck up on quite a few people.
And part of me died as well, you're not alone

Also, I need to thank you, because you're the one who got me watching Torchwood and shipping Janto ^^

:hug: Thank you! The heartbreaking scenes are the ones that are most interesting to paint, and tend to produce the artwork that I'm most proud of. I also break hearts to try and make up for mine being broken by this show.

I don't see how anyone COULDN'T have been heartbroken during this scene. Even people who didn't like Ianto should have at least felt horrible for how hard it was for Jack to go through that. You had to have a unfulfilled desire for vengeance against the writers of the show.

Reply
:iconmad-hattie:
Mad-Hattie Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012
Thanks! It's Series 3 Episode 4 (if you haven't seen series 3, I seriously advise against it because it will rip your heart out. Nobody seems to heed that warning, and then they end up emotionally scarred).

heidinanookie Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
haha. okay. I'm asking because I keep hearing interesting stuff about that spin-off but people also keep telling me it's not worth the bother. I might start watching anyway :D

:iconmad-hattie:
Mad-Hattie Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012
It's...different. I think you need an aquired taste for it, because it's dark compared to Doctor Who, and it contains sex and bloody deaths. It also just gets really sad after a while. However, I found I liked it a lot, and I got addicted to certain aspects of it(like the teamwork and the fact that Cardiff has aliens, down-to-earth risks, clever tie-ins with Doctor Who, and Jack and Ianto's relationship). I'd say watch a bit of it, but don't go past series 2 if you actually like it. The first few episodes are a bit shocking(especially episode 2), but then it sort of learns to balance itself out.

:( I'm sorry for everybody who finds that out. I still haven't gotten over it. At least...it makes for angsty art motivation. And there's always Janto fanfiction to help one feel a bit better.
The good thing is, it's fiction, so anyone can form headcanons where Ianto comes back to life or somehow didn't die in the first place(and then runs off with Jack and has space adventures).

Thank you so much! I'm still new to watercolor, too; this is only my second proper watercolor picture. The clallenge made it really fun to do(even though it's, you know, one of the saddest moments of Torchwood). Details make all the difference, so thanks for noticing. :)

Oh, and I just wanted to tell you that I accidently made you ... tumblr-famous. I posted your "The Evolution of Torchwood" (with credit, of course), and it kind of ... got a life of its own ^^' I hope you don't mind.
