Drabble: Once In A Moonlit Junkyard

Title: Once In A Moonlit Junkyard

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 288, Week 2 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Another night, another Weevil hunt…

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

A/N: Episode title = drabble title. It’s just easier that way.







The long, exhausting chase ended in a rundown junkyard at the edge of town, their quarry cornered amid piles of rusting metal.



Moonlight shone down on proceedings, lending everything an ethereal glow.



The Weevil snarled, swinging its head from side to side, looking for a way out but not finding one. Even so, taking it down was no picnic.



When they finally had it sedated and restrained, Jack turned to Ianto, smiling softly. “Not exactly the romantic dinner I’d planned.”



Ianto smirked. “Romance is overrated. Right now I’d settle for chips and a beer.”



Jack laughed. “Sounds like a plan!”



The End

Aww cute. It doesn't have to be romantic, as long as they are together :-)


Yippee I have finally caught up!
And I managed to post one love_bingo fic.
I might have to wait until tomorrow to read your fic of last week though.
Thank you. Yes, you're right. Ianto's not anti-romance, but he doesn't need all the frills, he knows how Jack feels and anyway, chips and beer can be romantic too!

Well done!

I've seen your bingo fic, but I'll have to read it tomorrow, I have so much to get finished before bed and I want to get an earlier night if I can. The earliest I've managed in the last week or more is 1am and that's no good, especially when I already feel drained from the heat.

I'll pick another short one tomorrow so maybe you'll be able to catch up again during the week =)
Chips and a beer can be very romantic if you're with the right person.
Exactly! Ianto doesn't need Jack to go over the top with fancy meals and candlelight. It's enough that they get to spend time together, just enjoying each other's company and they can do that just as well over chips and beer as they could over a three course meal in a fancy restaurant.

Thank you.
All Ianto needs is Jack, and he's happy. ;)
Very true!

Chips and a beer are a nice bonus though, especially after a very long Weevil hunt, chasing an actual Weevil!

Thank you!
they definitely need a drink after that.

Great story.
And something to eat! What's better than chips and a beer after a long chase? Especially when the company is good.

The Weevil won't get any chips though.

Thank you.
awwww roamnce is where your heart is! so I am pretty ser they would find romance over chips and beer and their company!
I am too! It's not about fancy food and an elaborate setting, it's about being with the one youn love.

Thank you!
They'd be too exhausted to enjoy the nice ambiance of the romantic restaurant, anyway. Not to mention all the effort required to get cleaned up. Sometimes chips, a beer and someone you love is all you need after a long day! <3<3
I guess when Jack booked the restaurant, he didn't expect to wind up chasing a Weevil across half of Cardiff! sometimes, romance is all about the company rather than the setting. I can imagine them on a park bench with chips and a beer each, enjoying an evening breeze and some peace and quiet, not needing to speak as they relax in each other's company. =)

Thank you.
