Drabble: Success

Title: Success
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 455: Shower at tw100.
Spoilers: Set pre-series, before Ianto joins Torchwood One.
Summary: Life in London isn’t what Ianto thought it would be.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.





At one time, Ianto had thought the measure of a man’s success was a good job, his own home, and an expensive car. Then he left the estate, headed to London, and has spent several months living hand-to-mouth, working whatever menial part-time jobs he can get, and living in shared squats.


His idea of success has downgraded significantly from owning his own place to living somewhere with a shower that actually works and isn’t shared by six other people.


Funny how having access to running water that’s more than barely lukewarm has gone from a necessity to an unimaginable luxury.



The End

Great drabble
Thank you!
That's why Ianto appreciates order and everything just-so
Yes, because he knows what the alternative is like.

Thank you!
You are a queen when writing so meaningful thoughts in so few words
Thank you so much!

So many things in life are a matter of perspective. What's insignificant one day might seem all important at another time.

Yup, you can't skimp on the essentials and a good hot shower is definitely top of the list.

It's a luxury at this point in Ianto's life, poor boy.

Thank you!
