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 76: Night Feeds
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 282 – Parents at tw100.

I have no idea if I'll write anything else for this week's challenge - I don't have any more bunnies for the prompt at the moment, but knowing the way they sneak up on me, it's always possible I'll think of something else before the deadline...

Summary: Ianto and Jack struggle to satisfy a hungry infant.

This is either a sequel or a prequel to my drabble 'Feeding Time' - I can't decide.

“Are you sure these night feeds are necessary?” Jack asked through a huge yawn.

“How the Hell am I supposed to know?” Ianto snapped peevishly, dragging himself from their bed. “I’ve never been a parent before! Anyway, even if they’re not, how’s anyone supposed to sleep through that racket?”

He dragged himself wearily towards the source of the screeching.

“Alright already, I’m getting your food! Can’t you just be patient for a minute? I’ll kill Owen for this. He can feed you tomorrow night. Here.”

Baby Myfanwy flapped her stubby wings and snatched the meat scrap from Ianto’s giant tweezers.

The End
