"tell rock n' roll i'm alone again" [part one], Torchwood, Owen/Ianto

Title: tell rock n’ roll i’m alone again
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Owen/Ianto (plus loads of others; mainly Owen/Suzie, Jack/everyone, Jack/John, Gwen/Rhys, Ianto/Lisa, Adam/Tosh)
Challenge/Prompt: au_bingo - Band
Rating: PG-15
Word Count: 17,050 (WHAT THE FUCK)
Genre: Slash
Copyright: Title is from Alpha Dog by Fall Out Boy.
Warnings: Canon minor character suicide. Casual drug and alcohol abuse references. IDK. Just, you know, this isn’t the cheeriest story.
Summary: In which Torchwood have just about made it though as it turns out that doesn’t fix anything, Owen would much rather punch Ianto than shag him (honestly), and absolutely everyone seems to be Jack’s ex boyfriend.
Author’s Notes: I’ve been wanting to write a band AU for Torchwood since that throwaway line in Meat, although this wasn’t the way I pictured this story turning out, frankly. I do like it though even if it’s really quite weird; I don’t know if everyone’s actually in character or not, but I hopefully captured the bleak and destructive atmosphere of most of my Torchwood fic if nothing else ;) I’m not even sure if it even hangs together as a story or not; it might be all TL;DR. Blah. Anyway, I rewatched copious amounts of Cobracam as research or, you know, to indulge my girlcrush on Victoria Asher, but let’s go with research but apart from that I know fuck all about being in a band.
