Characters: Ianto, Diane.
Written For: Challenge 519: Automatic at tw100.
Spoilers: Out Of Time.
Summary: Ianto’s explanation of a modern technological miracle doesn’t get the reaction he’s expecting.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Automatic doors had been around as long as Ianto could remember; he was so used to them that he took them for granted, so Diane’s reaction to the supermarket doors opening in front of her took him a bit by surprise. He should have expected it; they didn’t have such things back in the fifties.
Still, when asked how they worked, he had the answer ready. After all, he did have a reputation for knowing everything, and it was nice to be able to impress someone.
Sadly his explanation turned out to be less interesting than the bananas on sale…
