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 543: Sentimental Value
Author's Notes: For one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 316 earlier this 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. Prompt at the end.

Summary: Some things are special because of the memories they hold.

Poking about Ianto’s living room one evening while Ianto made coffee, Jack found something that surprised him. As Ianto turned from setting their drinks on the coffee table, Jack gestured towards the novelty Welsh dragon ashtray on the shelf.

“Didn’t know you smoked.”

“I don’t, not anymore. Used to back in London. Quit after I almost set fire to Lisa’s bed with a late-night fag.” He picked up the ashtray. “I should probably throw it out but… Lisa gave it to me as a joke a couple of months after we started dating.”

“Sentimental value?”

Ianto nodded, smiling.

“Happy memories.”

The End

A/N2: Prompt used is ‘The Ashtray’
