Torchwood: Metronome (The Temporal Anomaly Mix)

Original Fic: Metronome, by emmademarais
Remix: Metronome (The Temporal Anomaly Mix) [Jack/Ianto, 100 words, rated PG, spoilers for series 3], by joking

Time is broken.

The seconds hang still in the air, each one refusing to yield to the next. Jack sees his own death hovering like a shadow on the horizon, but it could be moments or eons away. His thoughts shudder to a halt, unraveling through the frozen seconds.

His grip on Ianto slackens. His lover's heart and lungs are still, their rhythm no longer beating out the passage of time. Jack blinks, and the seconds between him and death drain away in an instant.

Ianto slips away into the darkness, and for once, Jack is the one who follows.
