Laws Are Made To Be Broken

Title: Laws Are Made To Be Broken (Prologue/?)
Characters: The Torchwood Crew plus Estelle, Kathy Swanson, Lisa Hallett and John Hart.
Rating: 12A - 18
Warnings: M/M relationship and violence
Spoilers: None of Torchwood, the whole I, Robot film.
Disclaimer: I own neither Torchwood nor I, Robot (sadly).

Summary: In 2035, the community has the help of robots. Jack Harkness is a Cardiff Police homicide detective, who is sent to investigate the death of Dr. Owen Harper, a scientist at U.K Robotics. Jack believes that a new NS-5 robot, Toshiko, killed Harper, which means the robot broke the Law of Robotics. With the help of Ianto Jones, the company psychologist, they try to find answers to the mystery.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LAW I
A ROBOT MAY NOT INJURE A HUMAN BEING OR, THROUGH INACTION, ALLOW A HUMAN BEING TO COME TO HARM.

Jack knows what's going to happen. He knows that everyone involved is already dead. Still, he thrashes around, trying to open the blasted door of his car. He feels the water collecting in his throat as he tries desperately to get to the girl in the next car.

LAW II
A ROBOT MUST OBEY ORDERS GIVEN IT BY HUMAN BEINGS EXCEPT WHERE SUCH ORDERS WOULD CONFLICT WITH THE FIRST LAW.

He hears the metal feet on the back window of his car; he knows what it is and what it means for him and the girl. He continues to struggle with his door, in the hope that maybe he can save her, but to no avail as the girl continues to bang on her window. That's when he feels the pulling.

LAW III
A ROBOT MUST PROTECT ITS OWN EXISTENCE AS LONG AS SUCH PROTECTION DOES NOT CONFLICT WITH THE FIRST OR SECOND LAW.

She continues to struggle to get out, but just tumbles further and further into the murky green abyss. Jack continues to struggle as a metal hand brakes the window not immersed by water. He is pulled and feels the tearing, the ripping. And he screams…


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, this is something I've had in my brain for a while. I've thought out all of the characters, the plot etc etc, it's just taken me forever to get it written down! I'd be interesting in your opinions for this crossover. This is the character list:

Detective Del Spooner – Detective Jack Harkness
Dr. Susan Calvin – Dr. Ianto Jones
Sonny – Toshiko
Dr. Alfred Lanning – Dr. Owen Harper
Lawrence Robertson – Lisa Hallett
Granny – Estelle
Lt. John Bergin – Lt. Kathy Swanson
V.I.K.I – G.W.E.N (Genetically Wired Efficiency Node)
Farber (Spooner’s friend) – John Hart

This is just the prologue to see what you guys think. This is my first fic >.< Let me know what you think! Much love xx

I'm giggling madly at the thought of Ianto as Susan Calvin (but that's probably b/c I'm thinking about short stories Susan Calvin). Looking forward to this, type it up!

Oh (sorry, double post), and I just noticed you said this is your first fic. One piece of kind of general advice: don't be afraid to stray a little bit from the movie. If you keep the dialogue and everything too too exact, then our Torchwood characters don't feel like themselves, they end up feeling like the characters in I, Robot, just with different names. Anyway, I hope this turns out awesome ^.^

Man, poor Owen XD. I should probably brush up on I, Robot before the next part comes out.

Hope Jack makes it out okay ^_^

I think this is absolutely brilliant!!! I've not seen anything like it and I've read millions (or getting close to) of words in here.

Yes, please, by all means, continue this tale!! It's so imaginative and different, and besides, I want to know if whatever is saving Jack is good or bad, and does either one of them save the girl???

Please, this is a fantastic first fic - keep it up!!!!! Hurry!!
