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 1090: Jack Of Some Trades
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 423: Thumb at tw100.

Summary: Jack’s not skilled in everything…

Ianto, it seemed, was a bit of a Jack-of-all-Trades, able to turn his hand to most things. Jack, unfortunately, wasn’t. He could fly pretty much anything, knew an incredible amount about aliens, was a walking talking sex manual, and a pretty good cook too, but certain things he had no talent for whatsoever. Not that his ineptitude kept him from trying.

“How can I learn without doing things?”

It was a fair question.

“OWOWOW! I think I broke my thumb!”

Ianto looked heavenwards, praying for patience. That was the ninth time Jack had hit the wrong thing with the hammer.
