Author's Notes:
My third drabble for Challenge 328 – National Day or Holiday at tw100.

Summary: Ianto is in a bad mood; Jack wants to know why.

Ianto had retreated to the archives as soon as he’d delivered the team’s morning coffees. Puzzled when he didn’t reappear at lunchtime, Jack went down to investigate and found his lover stomping about and muttering under his breath in Welsh as he busied himself with a backlog of filing.

“What’s put you in such a foul mood?”

“It’s April twenty-third,” Ianto replied.


“St. George’s Day.”

“England’s patron saint?”

Ianto nodded curtly.

“And that’s bad because…?”

“Only the English would venerate a dragon slayer!”

“Ah, so you’re being righteously angry on behalf of Welsh dragons?”


“Good work! Carry on!”

The End
