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 959: Bad Idea
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 394: Grow at tw100.

Summary: Jack’s trying a new look; nobody seems impressed.

Throughout the morning briefing, Ianto sat staring at Jack. That wasn’t unusual, but his expression of horrified fascination definitely was.

The others seemed to be trying to pretend they hadn’t noticed anything out of the ordinary, but they weren’t doing a very good job of it. Owen in particular was having trouble keeping a straight face and studiously avoided looking at Jack.

When the meeting ended, everyone but Ianto left.

“Jack, have you been at the chocolate milk again?”


Ianto pointed. “You’ve got something…”

“I thought I’d grow a moustache,” Jack grinned. “What d’you think?”

Ianto sighed. “Oh dear.”
