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 260: What’s Going On? – Sequel to ‘Complex Calculations’
Author's Notes: Second of five drabbles for owensheart, who prompted me with ‘Ianto discovers the actual date of Jack’s birthday and decides to surprise him with a little celebration.’

Summary: Ianto has a surprise in store for Jack.

Ianto realised he’d figured out Jack’s birthday just in time. He had ten days to plan a birthday celebration for his lover, so he decided against a big party and arranged something for just the two of them.


Jack was puzzled when Ianto pulled up in front of a small hotel just up the coast from Cardiff. He was even more surprised when Owen dumped two bags out of the boot, jumped into the driver’s seat and calling out, “See you on Friday,” drove off with the rest of the team.

“Ianto? What’s going on?”

“Patience, Cariad, you’ll find out.”
