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 471: Late Return - Prequel to ‘After Hours Visit’
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 318 – Long Overdue at tw100. I think I have a couple more ideas.

Summary: Jack needs Ianto’s help, but not for the usual reasons.

Jack cornered Ianto in the archives, looking desperate.

“Ianto, I need your help tonight. I have to break into the library.”


“I just found a book I forgot to return. It’s kinda overdue, I don’t want to get fined.”

“Suck it up, Jack; we all have to pay to pay our fines, why can’t you?”

“This book is really overdue, and the new librarian scares me.” Jack made puppy dog eyes.

“Exactly how overdue are we talking here?”

“Umm, 73 years?”

Ianto rolled his eyes.

“Only you. Fine, I’ll help. But if we’re caught, you can do the explaining!”
