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 508: The Waist Land
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘The Waist Land’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Summary: Jack is worried about his expanding waistline.

Jack stared in the mirror, frowning, and poked his middle. There was no doubt about it; he’d put on weight, an unwelcome side effect of avoiding dying so often. He knew Ianto appreciated him being more careful, but worried his husband would lose interest now he’d gained weight.

“Ianto, d’you think I’m getting fat?” he asked hesitantly.

Ianto snorted, and Jack glared at him.

“It’s not funny!”

“Yes it is; I was about to ask you the same thing! Maybe we should stop eating junk food and exercise more.”

Jack dragged Ianto onto the bed.

“Good idea! Let’s exercise now!”
