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 929: Inappropriate
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 388: Innuendo at tw100. Not sure how good these will be, I struggled with this prompt as I'm not very good at figuring out what constitutes innuendo.

Summary: Jack sees innuendo in the most innocent conversations.

Everyone’s accustomed to Jack’s automatic use of innuendo, even in the most inappropriate situations. It’s got to the point where they usually either ignore it or groan because after all, he’s not likely to change any time soon, the habit is too deeply ingrained.

Sometimes it’s impossible to have a normal conversation anywhere near him.

“Hurry up,” Owen gasped, “it’s leaking!”

“Stick something in it!” Tosh squeaked.

“I have, but it’s not big enough!”

“Try mine,” Ianto joined in. “It’s bigger.”

“I can testify to that!” Jack grinned.

“Shut up, Jack! Help plug this hole before the bloody boat sinks!”
