Author's Summary: Ianto woke up feeling depressed. Now he is also having a bad morning. Jack/Ianto.
Characters/Pairings: Ianto Jones, Torchwood
Warnings: S1 of TW
Recced because: This is a story with a simple premise - being stopped by the police because of a silly misunderstanding - and Vera Steine uses that event to illuminate the disconnection of the title, a sense of velleity that is all too real and familiar. This is a very different Ianto to the rec I gave you yesterday, and this fic gives great insight into Season One Ianto and his complications. There's no sobbing, no magic Jack who sweeps in and saves everything (although it is a Janto story), but there's hope at the end of the story that Ianto's bad day will get better.
