Pairings/Characters: Jack/Ianto, Gwen/Rhys, Andy Davidson, Rhiannon Evans, Gray; OCs include new Torchwood team members. Mentions of Tosh and Owen.
Disclaimer: Definitely don't own Torchwood. It belongs to the BBC and Russell T. Davies. I'm fostering Jack and Ianto 'cause their owners don't know how to take care of them.
Warnings: past MPREG, some violence, past character deaths, original character death, major character death (not permanent).
Summary: Takes place after Wait For Me. Jack and Ianto are living together and have a two month old son. Aliens invade the Hub, causing destruction, including in the cryo-units. Things go from bad to worse when they discover the Rift Manipulator has also suffered damage. They have to pull together in hopes that they won't suffer anymore loss.

Notes: I have been asked many times to do this fic. I started it some time back originally for a big bang, but couldn't get it going. I ended up scrapping most of it to start again. Finally it's done. Lots and lots of hugs to milady_dragon, bookwrm89 and cyberdigi for the cheerleading and support. Without them, this would never have been finished. For those of you who wanted it, I hope this was worth the wait.
