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 740: That Special Smile
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Crooked Smile’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Summary: Jack’s smiles are famous, but there’s one Ianto loves best of all.

Jack was well known for his dazzling, mega-watt smiles, revealing perfect white teeth. He used them to disarm and charm everyone from the police to the elderly owner of the local newsagents.

He was equally well known for his patented line in lascivious leers and seductive smirks. More than a few people in the bars and clubs of Cardiff had succumbed to their promise over the years.

But in Ianto’s eyes, Jack’s best smile was the crooked little one he saved for Ianto alone, the one that said, “I know I’m not perfect, but I’m trying my best for you.”
