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 486: Withdrawal Symptoms
Author's Notes: Written for dailyprompt 11-01-2014: ‘out of coffee’.

Summary: It’s never a good thing when the coffee runs out, but some occasions are worse than others.

Getting stuck in the Hub during lockdown hadn’t seemed a problem at first. It was just the two of them since the rest of the team were out on a retrieval and it was nice having the place to themselves for once. Even the Rift was quiet; only one alert which the others easily dealt with.

But twenty hours into a forty-eight hour lockdown, they’d run out of coffee. Ianto’s behaviour had been getting steadily more erratic ever since.

Headaches, mood swings, irritability… Ianto going through caffeine withdrawal was no fun at all.

Now Jack was suffering from Ianto withdrawal.
