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 938: Hands
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 390: Ten at tw100.

Set pre-series.

Summary: Ianto is being observed.

Standing silently in the shadowy archives, Jack watched his newest recruit at his workbench, sorting through a box of miscellaneous objects that had probably come through the Rift years ago.

Each item was picked up, studied, and photographed, before being given a neatly written label with its catalogue number, description, and any other pertinent information. The same information was then typed into the computer database.

It was hypnotic watching the way Ianto’s graceful hands carried out each task with precision, ten slender but strong digits working in harmony; Jack longed to know how the touch of those hands would feel.
