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 581: A Quiet Drink
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘A Quiet Drink’, 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: All they wanted was a quiet drink after work…

After a long but boring day of paperwork, Jack had invited Ianto out for a quiet drink.

They’d headed for their favourite pub, where the atmosphere was friendly and they could relax and chat without needing to shout to make themselves heard.

The evening had started out fine; they’d settled at a table, sipping beer and sharing a plate of chips. Then a stag party on a pub-crawl staggered in and everything had devolved into chaos as a bar fight broke out.

Wading in to separate the combatants, Ianto rolled his eyes at Jack.

So much for their quiet evening.

The End
