    Default The Jack/Ianto Discussion and Thunk Thread

    I searched around here on Gateworld and I couldn't find a thread for Jack/Ianto! They are an awesome couple and so cute together. Best thing is it's not just a fan girls dream i've made this thread for people who like to thunk over pics of them, grab every possible spoiler, write fanfictions or make videos, everything to do with this couple. If there is a thread already, please point me in the right direction. If not, there now is

    This is a Pro thread so if you don't like this couple, please leave here quietly.

    How able i get us started

    Take a look at the Torchwood part of FF.net, it's swimming with J/I Slash

    Yep they are the McShep of Torwood/Doctor Who fandom! Although I still need to see more scenes with them on the show together for me to be totally there in a slash sense.

    As for fics you could also check out the Torchwood coms on LJ.

    torchwood_slash


    So is this a Discussion thread a Thunk or a Slash thread? Or all three!

    It's everything pro to do with this pairing it just seemed to me that it was spread between the two main threads so i thought it would be good to have somewhere to go completely into them without being off topic so to speak.

    So basically it is a Slash thread?

    I like to know, as I have been burned on GW before by folks who wanted "friendship" discussion but foolishly use the "/" in the title when they should have used the "&".

    ok but this isn't a "slash" relationship in the true fandom sense of "slash" is it?

    how many snogs have you seen in canon of Jack/Daniel? McKay/Shep? Kirk/Spock? (yes, that was for the oldies among us)

    In that way it isn't slash because, as we know, Jack is a 51st century bloke and will snog anything with a pulse.

    In that case, "freindship" discussion would be a little out of place - although as a dedicated and committed slasher, in all fairness I couldn't blame people for not want?*ng to see the actual relationship

    and apart from "cheap thrills" the reason I'd like to see J/I fic is because I like Ianto as a character (and it grieves me to say he's young enough - just - to be my son) and I think he is very cute too. What a combination.

    Finally, though, a whumped pair, and a slash pair that is right up there on the screen! Mr.MC hates it, but at least he can't argue with me about the existance of it.

    (thanks for the fic links... I'll give them a try)

    i used ' / ' for a reason

    EVERYONE! This is a slash thread! If you're into friendship that's fine but be aware it's mainly slash.

    It is interesting that in Queer as Folk fandom, some violently abhorred the use of the term slash to describe a canon pairing... but others didn't have a problem... personally I think on GW it just makes it easier for others to know where you are coming from so I will be using the term slash.

    Hmmm, I understand where you are coming from. You see there are two major definitions of slash out there:

    1. "Stories that depict a romantic and/or sexual relationship between characters of the same gender. This usually refers to male/male pairings, as that is the dominant type of story, but it also refers to female/female pairings. The term originated in Star Trek fandom as Kirk/Spock (or K/S) stories.

    2. "Stories which depict an erotic attraction or relationship - up to and including intercourse - between characters of the same sex (in particular those for whom no such relationship has been established by series canon)."

    Which one of these two you go with depends IMO to a large extent on which definition was the first you learned about when first introduced to the realm of slash.

    What I'm trying to say that both of you are right. Depending whether slash is more def 1. or def 2. for you.

    BTW I prefer the second one. I guess that's because for me ship has to do more with canon expectations than slash does. Most of the slashers I know don't expect their pairing to become canon and some of them even don't want it to become canon (that's what ff is for). While most shippers want their favourite relationship to be played out on the screen.

    And Willow'sCat, I don't have problem with slashing characters. When I see there's enough chemistry there I'm all for slash. I slash Jack and Daniel, but I ship Jack and Ianto. But if you want to slash Jack and Ianto, I'm more than O.K. with it. Esp when I see that your J/I slash = my J/I ship.

    As for using the "/" between the names, I believe that it is used for slash and ship pairings alike. (Vala/Daniel, Jack/Daniel).

    And to stay on topic:

    Not sure I follow your definitions here, I always thought the main problem was that slash is used in fanfics for gay male characters who would never be "gay" on the show but are paired together in fics for romantic reasons. So as I said in Queer as Folk fandom I came across some fans who slashed Brian/Michael and called it slash (as it never happened on the show) but would never call Brian/Justin slash as it was canon on the show.

    Ship by the way is Heterosexual not Homosexual. Well it is in my book. It has nothing to do with expectations of whether the pairing will be canon... you bet if handled well I want to see McKay/Sheppard slash on SGA. As it wouldn't be I don't push it so much.

    But seriously Ship is hetero. Also it is Femslash if it is lesbian.

    Yep I am so bored!

    These are not my definitions, I googled them.

    And ship is short for relationship. Well, at least in my book.
    Spoiler:
    Yeah, well, I know it's used for hetero-relationships, I just couldn't resist teasing you a little.

    I didn't mean to unleash a big discussion...
    and I don't disagree with those definitions although they appear to be so similar as to be almost the same.

    Slash - as far as I know (or care, which I don't really ) is non-canon m/m stuff

    And the only reason I'd avoid using "slash" to describe J/I is that it is Canon. Praise be - finally!

    We're having a discussion on h2g2 about if it is pervy for straight women to find the m/m stuff in Torchwood rather nice to watch. I guess that depends on your definition of pervy.

    As for me: I know a fair few gay guys in RL and get a bit fed up with not seeing any on TV. Now, when the writers stop using it to try to shock us, I'll be a very happy bunny.

    It is a discussion thread.

    Anyway I get the feeling most fans are happy slashing them elsewhere in humours ways... like the Thunk threads, it is refreshing to be able to post caps of men kissing without someone coming along and cringing.

    OK I don't have any caps yet. Mine are all of Jack/The Doctor kissing.

    I'm looking forward to pouring scorn on people shipping Ianto/Gwen (for example) and shouting very loudly about it not being Canon!
