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 1064: Value Is Relative
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 418 – Precious at tw100.

Set in my ‘Through Time And Space ‘Verse.

Summary: Ianto has become very skilled at trading.

Jack was amazed by how well Ianto had adjusted to life among the stars. Of course, his TARDIS had a lot to do with that; she’d picked up important information about the worlds they’d visited while searching for Jack, telling Ianto anything he needed to know to fit in.

Even so, watching him trading with aliens was endlessly fascinating. As Jack looked on, Ianto bowed low, offering the squat creatures what looked like a bag of marbles in exchange for enough fresh fruit and vegetables to last them several months.

“Apparently glass is more precious than diamonds here,” Ianto explained.
