A Bitter Kiss Will Bring Him to His Knees

Title: A Bitter Kiss Will Bring Him to His Knees
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: (in that order) Lisa/Ianto, Gwen/Ianto, Jack/Ianto
Rating: PG-15
Warnings: Drug use is mentioned and acted upon; suicide is also mentioned.
Summary: Three Torchwood agents were most affected by Ianto Jones's presence in their life, but only one managed to stick around.
Author's Notes: This originated as a simple and easy Ianto/Lisa fic that was a bit in a James Bond style and then evaluated into this monster. It’s basically a character study; Ianto seen through the eyes of three different Torchwood agents. The lyric breaks indicate change of characters. The first one is Lisa, the second is Gwen, and from the third one on and until the end it’s all Jack, so if any of the three characters makes you uncomfortable, feel free to skip them. All the lyrics used here have been used as opening credits for a James Bond movie at some point; same goes for the title. I’m easily amused.
Anyway, let me know what you think because it’s the first time I’m writing Lisa and I’m not sure if I got her right and I don’t write Gwen all that often and the last part was written in the spur of the moment I’m generally unsure about the outcome of this fic.
