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 57: Treasured Possessions
Author's Notes: Only one drabble this week for Challenge 277 – Bottled at tw100. Quite a disappointment after last week. On the plus side, it's not a gloomy one!

Summary: It’s not just 21st century humans, is it, Jack?

Mooching around Ianto’s bedroom while Ianto was making the bed, Jack picked up a rather tattered something he hadn’t previously noticed.

“What on earth is this?”

That,” Ianto said with indignant emphasis, snatching the object in question from Jack’s hands, “is my teddy bear, Fred. I’ve had him since I was a baby.”

“You still keep your teddy?”

“Of course. He has great sentimental value.”

Jack snorted.

“21st century humans, getting sentimental over inanimate objects.”

“This from the man who keeps a bottled hand on a shelf and talks to it when he thinks no one can hear.”

Jack blushed.
