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 939: The Right Spot
Author's Notes: Written for my own prompt ‘Any, any, A meeting of minds,’ at fic_promptly.

Okay, this is a bit of a weird one. The challenge was to write a fill without using any linking verbs. I succeeded, but it’s rather choppy.

Summary: Arranging furniture is a precise science.

A new flat, a new home, and all new furniture; logistical nightmare.

Jack manoeuvred their new armchair carefully.

“Not there,” Ianto objected, frowning.

“Why?” Jack asked, bemused.

“Not enough sunlight there,” Ianto insisted.

Jack shifted the chair.

“Here then?” he queried.

“No way, much too cluttered.”

“Fussy pants! No pleasing you,” Jack muttered grumpily, back and arms aching.

He tried another spot.

“No good.”

“What now?” Frustrated and tired.

“Much too dark.”

Jack sighed heavily. Another move, muscles straining painfully.

“Any objections?”

Ianto smiled, shaking his head. “Just perfect!”

Jack eyed the chair thoughtfully. Clever Ianto. Amazingly, Jack agreed completely.
