Double Drabble: Worth A Fortune

Title: Worth A Fortune
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Jack, Ianto.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 493: Valuable at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: The Rift’s latest gift to Torchwood has Jack all excited.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: Double drabble.

The Rift alert was practically on their doorstep, and what was left behind had Jack as wide-eyed as a kid at Christmas.

“This is incredible!”

Ianto had seldom seen Jack so excited about something that had nothing to do with sex. Then again, it was a bottle of sparkling liquid so perhaps it would turn out to be an aphrodisiac of some description.

“What is it, and what’s so special about it?”

“It’s Corundian Lustre Wine,” Jack enthused. “The rarest wine in the universe. Only fifty bottles were ever produced. You could buy an entire planet for less than a single bottle would set you back, and look at this crate! Four unopened bottles sequentially numbered nine through twelve!”

“It’s… sparkly.”

“It’s infused with gold, platinum, and several rarer elements not found on earth,” Jack explained.

“How delicious,” Ianto said dryly.

“Actually it’s not, the stuff’s totally undrinkable, but that’s not the point.”

“It’s not?”

“Of course not! The point is that only the absolutely wealthiest individuals can afford to own a bottle for display purposes, and we’ve got four! Trust me, Ianto; this is Torchwood’s most valuable find ever! Shame we can’t sell them for another two thousand years.”

The End


Ring ring...

Ring ring...


Doctor! We need a short trip into the future. Meet you out the front in five minutes.
*laughs* That would work! Nip to the future, auction off the bottles one at a time in different places and times, come back with a fortune in something that won't depreciate in value... Torchwood would be completely self-sufficient =D

Thank you!
Wow what a find.

great drabble
Sometimes they get lucky ;)

Thank you!
For once the Rift brings something nice.Maybe they'd be curious enough to drink one bottle.
Nope, it really is undrinkable, literally more a work of art than a wine. Even Jack might not survive the attempt. Much more useful to sell it and make use of the proceeds.

Thank you!

Well, on the plus side, Ianto, youv'e got a decent deposit for those first half dozen planets you can buy in the future!

Yep! Or just one planet and a really good spaceship ;)

Thank you!
Omg. Once they found something cool, they could not use it.
Well, not yet, but as long as they keep it safe they'll be able to sell it eventually and be set for eternity!

Thank you!
