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 439: The Stopwatch
Author's Notes: Just in case I go out tomorrow and I’m not able to post before the current challenge ends, have another drabble – my 44th for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100.

Prompt used is ‘Something Old’

Spoilers: Vague for They Keep Killing Suzie.

Summary: Ianto distracts himself by thinking about his stopwatch.

It was an antique, precision engineering at its most intricate, at least for the time in which it was made; cogs and springs and burnished metal, all combining to make as elegant a timepiece as had ever been invented.

Watches had come a long way since this one had been made, even passing through a phase of digital monstrosities, which Ianto considered abominations.

The stopwatch ticked on, second by second, measuring elapsed time rather than the time of day.

Ianto moaned in ecstasy.

He was sure it hadn’t been designed for the uses he and Jack were putting it to!
