A/N: Double drabble.
Although most of the time Jack preferred to be hands-on with his favourite Welshman, now and then he liked to Ianto-watch. The easiest way was from his office, relaxing at his desk and following his lover on his laptop screen, via the network of CCTV cameras throughout the Hub. That method had the advantage of making it appear that he was working, but there were times it just didn’t quite satisfy.
The more appealing, and significantly more dangerous, method was to stalk his prey on foot through the archives, where he could lurk in the shadows, silent and unseen.
Hunting Weevils required far less skill since the idea was to chase and capture them; there was no stealth involved. Ianto was a far trickier prospect; unless Torchwood’s archivist was deeply involved in whatever he was doing, there was a high possibility that Jack would be the one to get caught, and if that happened… Well, he’d be in serious trouble for not getting on with his work. In Jack’s opinion, however, the rewards far outweighed the risks. Observing Ianto when his guard was down brought new insights into the young Welshman. If Jack had his way he’d Ianto-watch all day.
