The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted



Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 1011: Cake Thief
Author's Notes: My final drabble for Challenge 405: Remorse at tw100.

Another one with two versions.

Summary: Ianto just wanted a slice of his own birthday cake…

Drabble Version

“How could you?” Ianto asked reproachfully. “That was the last piece of my birthday cake, I was really looking forward to it, but all that’s left are crumbs. Is it so much to ask that I get one measly slice of my own cake? I’m all for sharing, but everyone was helping themselves like there was an inexhaustible supply. I thought you’d have some consideration even if nobody else did.”

Nosy looked suitably remorseful.

“What’s up?” Jack asked.

“Nosy ate the last piece of my cake,” Ianto replied mournfully.

“No it didn’t; I saved you some, it’s in the cupboard.”


The End




Extended Version


“How could you? You know better than to take things without asking, or at least you should!” Ianto glared reproachfully at the miscreant, his eyes full of hurt. “That was the last piece of my birthday cake and I was really looking forward to it, but instead when I come to eat it, all that’s left are a few crumbs. Is it so much to ask that I get one measly slice of my own cake? I’m all for sharing, but everybody else was helping themselves like there was an inexhaustible supply. I thought you’d have some consideration even if no one else did.”

Nosy looked suitably remorseful.

“What’s up?” Jack asked, wandering over.

“Nosy stole the last piece of my cake,” Ianto replied mournfully.

“No it didn’t; when I saw how fast the cake was going, I saved you some. It’s hidden in the top cupboard.”

Jack fully deserved the enthusiastic kiss he got for that bit of foresight!
