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!

Chapter 1020: Murphy’s Law
Author's Notes: I wrote an Ice Cream drabble for FAKE so I decided to do one for Torchwood too.

Summary: Ianto was happily enjoying a treat before Jack startled him…

Ianto settled at his computer, browsing ebay for alien artefacts while enjoying a well-deserved treat. He quickly became completely engrossed, licking his ice cream and marvelling at the oddities up for sale.

In fact he was so absorbed, he didn’t even hear Jack approach; when a hand touched his shoulder, he almost jumped out of his skin and his ice cream went flying.

“Jack! Look what you made me do!”

“Sorry, I’ll get you another ice cream. At least it didn’t go on the floor.”

“Might’ve been better if it had,” Ianto muttered gloomily. “Now I’ll have to wash Nosy.”
