Double Drabble: Out Of Luck

Author: badly_knitted

Summary: Christmas is not going well for Jack and Ianto.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble.

The Rift had been running them ragged in the weeks leading up to Christmas and Ianto had bemoaned the fact that he’d not had time to shop for all the Christmas essentials. When things finally eased up on Christmas Eve, he dragged Jack to the supermarket, determined to make up for lost time. Christmas dinner was at stake!

Sadly, not a single fresh turkey, nor even turkey breasts or legs, was left in the place, only half a dozen or so gigantic frozen turkeys that would likely take at least a week to defrost properly, and that were too big to fit in their oven anyway.

“Not to worry,” Jack said mildly. “We can have Christmas dinner at a restaurant instead. It’ll save all the cooking and there won’t be a stack of washing up to do. It’ll be perfect!”

“I don’t know, I think to do that you need to book in advance. Only a few places will be serving Christmas dinner.”

“It’ll be fine,” Jack insisted.

So here they were, looking for somewhere to eat and drawing a blank.

“I told you we should’ve made reservations!” Ianto grumbled. “Let’s go home. There’s pie and chips in the freezer.”

The End



I Love Janto

At least they are together, and unhurt.
Finding anything open is good.

They will go out for New Years Eve.
Ianto will call first.

Re: I Love Janto

That would probably be a better idea, Ianto is still miffed about not getting Christmas dinner though.

Thank you!


Re: I Love Janto

I don't blame him.
It is not anyone's fault that the rift went nuts.

Re: I Love Janto

No, it's not, it's just disappointing.
Ohhhhh poor boys! Fortunately, they are together and they would probably enjoy their frozen dinner anyway.
Maybe they can pop over to Rhiannon's and have dinner there ;)

Thank you!
Aww poor boys but at least they have each other, Pie and chips is at least a meal.

great drabble
Maybe Rhi will phone in the nick of time and ask them over for Christmas dinner.

Thank you!
They will be together, and enjoy whatever they have. I'd have got steaks, or even better, a nice joint of beef
Ianto's wishing he'd done that now, but he was hankering after his traditional Christmas turkey dinner. *pets Ianto* Why don't you call Rhi, I'm sure she'd love to have a couple of extras to help eat all the food!

Thank you!

*sighs* It would have been too much to ask for the rift to drop a Chirstmas dinner at their house, wouldn't it?

Sadly, yes - if it did, it would be uncooked or burned to a crisp.

Happily, Rhi called and asked Ianto if he was coming over for dinner, so things worked out in the end ;)

Thank you!
