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 356: Civilized Manners
Author's Notes: My nineteenth drabble for tw100's Open Challenge. Prompt used is Challenge 227: Dragons.

Summary: Ianto and a guest take refreshments.

“Would you care for some coffee?” Ianto enquired politely, “Or perhaps you’d prefer tea? I have a particularly piquant Japanese green tea.”

“Most kind of you,” the dragon replied. “Green tea would be delightful.”

Ianto inclined his head graciously and poured for them both.

“I regret that there’s no time available to perform a proper tea ceremony,” Ianto apologized.

“Understood. When matters of some urgency arise, such pleasantries must necessarily be set aside for another time.”

Sipping their tea, the two got down to the business of preventing the dragon’s damaged spaceship engines from blowing a large crater in Cardiff.
