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 877: Surprise!
Author's Notes: Written for mahmfic’s prompt ‘surprises’ & Challenge 377: Surprise at tw100.

Summary: Ianto’s thoughts on surprises.

When he was little, Ianto had loved surprises. Sometimes his tad took them on surprise outings, or his mum would surprise him with sweets or small toys.

As he’d grown older though, he’d found not all surprises were good, like his sister announcing she was marrying Johnny Davies, or coming home and finding his tad drunk.

Working for Torchwood meant surprises every day. Some were pleasant. Most had sharp teeth, deadly weapons, or exploded unexpectedly. Surprising, yes, but not exactly fun.

This, however…

“Surprise!” shouted Jack, throwing his coat open. Ianto blinked and grinned.

Unexpected Naked Jack was always good!
