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 1113: Cancellation
Author's Notes: My final drabble for Challenge 428: London at tw100.

Summary: One guest won’t be showing up for Christmas dinner.

“The Doctor called,” Jack said, coming through the door into Ianto’s kitchen. “He can’t make it for Christmas. Apparently he’s stuck in London and he can’t get away.”

“Another invasion? I hope he doesn’t expect up to help out, I’ve been up since the crack of dawn cooking the turkey and everything!”

“No, it’s fine, there’s no invasion, at least not so far.”

“Then why?”

“His current companion invited him for Christmas dinner and won’t take no for an answer. He tried telling her he already had plans, but she didn’t believe him.”

“With his track record, I’m not surprised.”
