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 591: Snow And Tell - Sequel to ‘A Slight Emergency…’
Author's Notes: Ianto was getting upset about the snow in the archives damaging sensitive artefacts and ruining paperwork. He wanted something done about it, and you know I can never say no when he begs so sweetly…

Summary: What do you do with a machine that’s causing snow in an inconvenient place?

Jack frowned at the bulky, heavy device they’d manhandled down to the archives the previous day. Tosh’s tests had indicated it was inoperative, but there it sat, glowing happily as snow fell around it. He folded his arms and frowned at Ianto.

“I hope you realise I don’t know how to turn it off either.”

“Figures. But yeah, I guessed that. I just need help moving it somewhere the snowfall won’t cause damage while we figure it out.”

“Now that I can do.”


Two hours later, Owen came haring up to Jack’s office.

“Jack, it’s snowing in the bloody showers!”

The End (I’m almost sure this time).
