Author: badly_knitted

Summary: Ianto bids farewell to his faithful protectors, fallen in the line of duty.

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

A/N: Title used was Elegy for Fallen Wellies

They’d served him well since he joined Torchwood Three, faithfully protecting him through mud and mire, through slime and goo, through disgusting sewers and even through years of cleaning the cells and Myfanwy’s nest.

Now though, their faithful service had come to an end; they’d been defeated by a river of neon green, acidic gunge, bravely giving their last to keep his feet from being melted off.

The least he could do was give them a proper send off.

“Alas, poor wellies, brave to the last. I salute you,” Ianto murmured solemnly, then shrugged and tossed them into the incinerator.

The End


Sweet little piece and so Ianto, seeing them off like this (though I had to look up what "wellies" are to really get it; that word wasn't in my English vocabulary so far ^.^").
Wellies, our affectionate name for the humble Wellington Boot than comes in handy so much in soggy Britain, lol! Very versatile footwear, I wear mine all the time when I'm gardening, they keep the ants out.

It just seemed like something Ianto would do, I think in that respect he's a lot like me. I hate throwing out things that have served me well for years, it just seems disrespectful, but sometimes it just has to be done.

Thank you.
