A/N: Title used is The Man Who Nearly Knew Pavarotti.
Browsing his record collection one evening for something to play, Jack turned to Ianto.
“Did I ever tell you I knew Pavarotti?”
“Really? What was he like?”
“Well, I didn’t really know him as such, but I met him. Once. In passing. Okay, I nearly bumped into him outside a restaurant in London.”
“Ah.” Ianto smiled. “So you knew Pavarotti the way I know Charlotte Church.”
Jack looked intrigued.
“Saw her once from behind when she was opening a summer fair. Could’ve reached out and touched her but a crowd was in the way.”
“Yeah. Exactly like that.”
