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 73: Decorative Butterfly - Sequel To 'Impulsive Butterfly'
Author's Notes: This is, I think, my seventh drabble for Challenge 281 – Lepidoptera at tw100. In the absence of a new challenge, I figure this one is still fair game and I was planning to continue the series anyway, so here's the next one. It follows straight on from 'Impulsive Butterfly' and is the fourth (but definitely not the last) in the Butterfly Series.

Summary: Jack’s finally got Torchwood’s new addition all to himself…

Jack seemed delighted with his new headgear.

Ianto watched with amusement as his lover pranced about the Hub, checking out his appearance in every reflective surface.

“It suits me, don’t you think?” Jack asked, striking a dramatic pose. “This would be the height of fashion on Zelmaxus IV.”

“Yes, Jack, you look very pretty,” Ianto agreed with a smirk. “Having an alien butterfly on your head might prove a trifle awkward if you have to go out on a Rift alert though.”

Jack looked thoughtful.

“Maybe I could camouflage it.”

Ianto wondered if the butterfly was regretting its rash decision.
