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 396: Awkward Situation - Sequel to ‘Mobbed’
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100. Title used was ‘I’m Not That Guy’

Summary: Exactly what is a man supposed to say when mistaken for someone else?

Fish and chips in hand, Jack stared at the crowd of women surrounding him. They were jostling each other, holding out bits of paper and pens.

“Please, Mr Barrowman, could we have your autograph?” the spokeswoman for the group asked.

He dimly registered one of the other women murmuring something about him being even better looking in person, but the sound of Ianto sniggering behind him was drowning out her comments.

“I’m sorry, ladies, I’d love to help you out, but I swear I’m not the guy you think I am!”

How the hell did he get into these situations?

The End
