Drabble: Mislaid

Title: Mislaid

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 309 – The Library at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack’s lost something important.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.







Jack had turned his room upside down; he’d searched under the bed, in the wardrobe, even in the laundry basket, to no avail. Where the hell was it? He knew he’d put it somewhere safe so he wouldn’t lose it, but he’d lost it anyway.



“Jack, what the hell are you doing? Look at this mess!”



“Sorry, sorry, I’ll tidy up, I promise.”



“What’re you looking for?”



“I got an overdue notice from the library, but I can’t find the book! I’ll be fined!”



Ianto held up a book.



“This one?”



“That’s it! Where was it?”



“On your bookshelf.”



“Oh.”



The End

Oops?? LOL!

Just where you would expect to find a book. :)
If you're Jack, anywhere other than where it should be, apparently! Poor boy, he has no fear of Weevils but he's scared of library fines. The librarian must be really scary!

Thank you!
Thanks God for Ianto!
He's the sensible one in the relationship - he looks in the most obvious places first, or maybe he found the book in an odd place and put it where is SHOULD be, lol!

Thank you!
Ha Jack worried about a fine. I so hope Ianto makes Jack clean up his own mess.
Yep! No fear of weevils, but library fines... Oh the horror! LOL!

Jack promised to clean up the mess he made, he knows better than to break a promise to Ianto. Ianto can be even scarier than the Librarian!

Thank you!
I'm not going to lie. The word "mislaid" led my mind in a decidedly gutter-ish direction....
ROFL! Exactly how DO you mis-lay someone in that context? I'd love to know, maybe it would give me some ideas ;)

Thank you!
Dunno, but if anything occurs to me, I'll let ya know. ;p
*grins* Thanks!

Also, thanks for the lovely, summery birthday card, it arrived just as the weather here turned cold again! I can daydream about a sunny day, lazing in the hammock =D
Nice! can see Jack doing that lol!
He's not the most organised person, is he, lol!

Thank you!
Poor Jack, he can face down any kind of alien out there, but a librarian terrifies him? Ultimate alien terror!! Then again, he's gotta clean up his room or Ianto! alien will get him :D
She's a very scary librarian, lol! Not as scary as Ianto on a rampage though, Ianto can deny Jack all the pleasures of life.

Thank you!
*gigglesnort* That librarian must have a scarier disapproving look than Ianto's!

Not quite, but it's close. She's very intimidating, lol! Ianto still has the edge,

Thank you.
Hahaha sounds like me, look everywhere but in the obvious place LOL

Great drabble.
When I look, the obvious place is always empty, lol!

Thank you!
Hahahaha! This sounds like you speak from experience? LOL

Edit: Wait, any excuse to use that icon!

I do, I'm always putting things in safe places and then it takes me months to find them again. o_O

Great icon, reading is very sexy and Scott makes it look even sexier!
What has helped me in that case I am searching something: Stop and ask yourself where you would put it if you had to put it away right now. Usually this is the spot where to look for it! Trust me, it works.

I stole the icon somewhere but I really love it as well and I use it for any post about books or reading. I only have 15 icons allowed, I have to make the most of them.
Thanks, I'll try that, though I'm not sure it'll work for me as things are always getting moved around.
If it were me rather than Jack the obvious place would have been the refrigerator! Just saying.
Years ago, we spent all day looking for the keys because we couldn't get out the front door. No one knows why they were in mum's glove. It wasn't even winter.

Thank you.
My aunt once searched for her necklace. We turned the whole apartment upside down till my father checked the garbage. It was indeed there! She must have had it in her hand, and, while talking, absently minded throwing it away.
Lol!
Did he look on the bookshelf and just not see it, or did it not occur to him to look in the most obvious place?
It didn't occur to him to look there, possibly because he hadn't put it there ;)

After all, we all know who does the tidying up!

Thank you.
Well, who would think to look THERE? :-p

Poor Jack. I hope the fees weren't TOO bad.

Jack never looks in the logical place, lol!

At least he managrd to return the book, even if he was in fear of the librarian. I don't expect it was a big fine.

Thank you!
....
Fortunately, There currently Ianto.
Ianto always knows where things are. Mostly because they're where he put them after finding them in strange places, lol!

Thank you!
