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 743: Foot In Mouth: Jack - Sequel to ‘Rebuked’
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 342: Foreign Language at tw100.

Summary: Jack’s surprised that Nosy really is learning Welsh.

“You really are teaching Nosy Welsh?” Jack was astonished; he hadn’t expected Ianto to admit it.

Ianto just shrugged. “Why not? It likes learning new things.”

“Yeah, but… Shouldn’t you be teaching it English instead of a foreign language?”

That earned Jack a withering look.

“First of all, we’re in Wales, so technically, Welsh is not a foreign language here, it’s our native language. Secondly, Nosy is an alien from another planet; it only speaks Fluff. As far as it’s concerned, all earth languages could be considered foreign, and that includes English.”

Jack winced at Ianto’s disapproving tone. “Good point.”
