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 641: Day Of Dread
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 328 – National Day or Holiday at tw100.

Summary: Ianto’s wakes one morning feeling refreshed, until he realises what day it is.

Ianto yawned, stretched, and reached out to the other side of the bed, finding it empty and cold.

“Jack?” Where’d he disappeared to? The answer came in the form of distant clattering from the kitchen. Ah, Jack must have woken up hungry and decided to make breakfast; maybe if Ianto stayed put he’d be treated to breakfast in bed.

That thought lasted until he smelled what was cooking. He bolted from the bed, suddenly remembering what day this was, but it was too late.


“Damn it! Lost another one!”

Ianto cringed, visualising the mess. How he hated Pancake Day!
