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 841: Gwen’s Foot In Mouth
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 369: Awkward at tw100.

Another one with two versions, the official drabble and a 150 word extended version. Apologies to Gwen fans, but she does tend to interfere.

Summary: Gwen just can’t mind her own business.

Drabble Version

Gwen was surprised to see Ianto having dinner with a woman, especially since she knew Jack was doing paperwork back at the Hub. She should have minded her own business, but she couldn’t ignore it, no matter what Rhys said.

“Ianto! I’m surprised to see you here! I thought you’d be with Jack!” She turned to the woman with a sweet smile. “Ianto and his boyfriend are practically inseparable, you know.”

The woman nearly choked on her wine.

Ianto glared at Gwen. “Thanks, Gwen. You just outed me to my sister. Happy now?”

“Oops, sorry. This is a bit awkward…”


The End



Extended Version

Gwen was more than a little surprised to see Ianto having dinner with a woman, especially since she’d just left Jack doing paperwork back at the Hub. As usual, instead of minding her own business, she just couldn’t let it go, despite Rhys begging her to stay out of it and just enjoy their first night out together in a month.

“Ianto! I’m surprised to see you here! I thought you’d be with Jack!” She turned to the woman with a sweet smile. “Ianto and his boyfriend are practically inseparable, you know.”

The woman’s eyes widened and she nearly choked on her wine.

Ianto glared at Gwen. “Thanks, Gwen,” he told her frostily. “Meet my sister, Rhiannon. I hadn’t told her about Jack and I yet. Congratulations, you just outed me. Happy now?”

“Oops, sorry, Ianto. Oh dear, this is a bit awkward…” Rhys was right; she should’ve kept quiet.

The End
