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 730: Spider-Man 2: Jack’s POV – Sequel to ‘Spider-Man’
Author's Notes: My fifth drabble for Challenge 340: Spiders at tw100.

Summary: Jack knew he was never going to make a good spider.

Coordinating eight legs wasn’t easy; Jack quickly realised he was never going to learn to scuttle in the accepted spidery way. The best he could manage was a sort of lopsided lurching gait that resulted in him ending up in an undignified heap on the ground more often than not.

Ianto was being nice about it, helping him untangle his legs and get back on his feet with barely a smirk. Sadly, the same couldn’t be said for the others, who were falling about laughing.

It wasn’t fair. If he could only make spider-web, he’d be able to get revenge!
