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 867: Boxing Day Cleanup – Part 1
Author's Notes: The first of a four-part series written for Challenge 376: Rubbish at tw100.

Summary: Christmas Day was fun, but someone has to deal with the aftermath, and we all know who that will be.

Christmas at the Hub had been a merry occasion, good food, good company, just enough booze, and an abundance of presents to unwrap. Lit by strings of fairy lights and adorned with decorations, the Hub itself had looked delightfully festive, more like Santa’s grotto than a secret underground base.

But now it was Boxing Day, and while the decorations remained pretty, the mess left over from the day before certainly wasn’t. There were empty plates and glasses on every surface and abandoned wrapping paper all over the floor.

Ianto sighed. Why was he always left to clean up the rubbish?
