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 738: Easy As Pie…
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 341: Pie at tw100.

Summary: Jack and Owen aren’t very good at construction.

“What’re you messing about at?” Owen asked, poking his head into Jack’s office. “Aren’t you finished yet? Don’t know what’s takin’ you so long; those things are easy as pie to put together.”

Jack glared at Owen from where he sat on the floor, bits of flat-pack cabinet scattered around him, instructions clutched in one hand and screwdriver in the other.

“If it’s so simple,” he snapped, tossing the screwdriver towards Owen, “you do it!”


An hour later they studied their handiwork. It didn’t look right and they had some extra pieces.

“We should’ve waited for Ianto,” Jack muttered.
