Drabble: A Chaise Longue Too Far

Title: A Chaise Longue Too Far

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 288, Week 3 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto takes Jack furniture shopping…

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

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

Shopping with Jack was usually a pleasure, not to mention highly entertaining, but buying furniture for their new flat was turning into an exercise in frustration.

It wasn’t even that Ianto didn’t approve of Jack’s rather eclectic taste in furnishings, it was more a case of Jack wanting to buy everything they both liked. Ianto couldn’t seem to make him understand that there simply wasn’t enough room.

“We don’t live in a TARDIS, Jack! If we buy all of this stuff, there won’t be room for us!”

“You think the Chaise Longue is too much then?”

“Yeah, just a bit.”

The End


Jack is like a kid in a candy store, great story.
I think Ianto might be happier if it WAS a candy store - candy takes up less space, lol!

Thank you!
LOL! My partner and I have actually had this conversation! I love a good Chaise Longue! (So does she, but we really don't have the room.)

Poor Ianto. Putting the brakes on Jack must be a full-time job.
They are elegant and stylish, but if you don't have the room they just become clutter.

Thank you, and yes, everything about Jack is a full-time job, lol!
I can imagine them lying there if there was space .....
They'd both love to have one but it's just not practical, given their lack of space.

Thank you!
Simple solution....they buy a bigger place. Lol
But then Ianto would have a bigger place to keep clean and tidy!

I think their choice was limited by what was available and close to the Hub. Perhaps they can get somewhere bigger later and then they can buy the coveted Chaise Longue!

Thank you.
Jack has that bunker in the Hub, so he's used to cramped spaces! LOL
He is, so now there's MORE space, he's getting a bit carried away...

Thank you
Aww fluffy and funny.
I like a good moving in together drabble :-)
Thank you.

Moving in together is causing unforeseen complications, but they'll work things out eventually! And maybe one day they'll have a bigger place so they can have the coveted Chaise Lounge, lol!
I love it!!!!
Thank you!

Poor Jack, he really wanted that Chaise Longue...
Lol nice!!! Yeah sadly the chaise loungers take up so much room but are nice to have. Anyways this was really good. :) Thank you for writing it !
Oooh, this was from my favourite tw100 challenge, using episode titles from Last of the Summer Wine as prompts - I'm still using them even now because there are so many and such great episode titles to use. I didn't get to use all the ones I wanted to, even though I wrote 33 drabbles in 28 days, so I still have lots to play with =)

Thank you!
