Author: badly_knitted

Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 531: Rain at tw100.

Summary: To Ianto’s horror, Jack’s gone over the top with the Christmas decorations again.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: Double drabble.

“Deck the halls with boughs of holly…” Jack was singing as he bustled around the Hub, stringing lights and twining tinsel around anything that stayed still long enough. He’d already bought and set up a real fir tree in one corner; decorating that would be his next task.

Ianto walked in through the cog door and stopped dead, an expression of abject horror on his face. “Jack, I thought we’d agreed to keep the Hub decorations to a minimum this year? Just a small, tasteful fake tree and a few lights…”

“I know, but it looked like Scrooge’s version of Christmas, there was no cheer! Christmas should be merry and bright, not just a token plastic tree shoved somewhere out of the way. All year long the Hub’s drab and depressing. Why shouldn’t we have a bit of sparkle? It’s only for a month or so.”

“Yes, and then I’m left cleaning up pine needles and glitter and bits of tinsel for the next eleven months,” Ianto said sourly, scowling at the Christmas finery.

“Grinch!” Jack accused. “Where’s your Christmas spirit? Stop complaining and give me a hand with these lights. You’re not going to rain on my festive parade!”

The End


Ooh and don't forget all the tinsel regurgitated by an inquisitive pterosaur ...
Hopefully Myf will keep her tinsel-chewing to a minimum this year ;)

Thank you!
Hahaahah, I would have loved to see Jack telling off his beloved Welshman!!!
Ianto will gt the Christmas spirit as soon as Jack promises to do all the post-Christmas cleaning up!

Thank you.
bECAUSE iANTO loves Jack, he will indulge his longing for sparkle, and even enjoy it. If Jack has any sense he'll make the team help with the clear up - and do some himself
I'm sure now Jack knows Ianto's reasons for not wanting a lot of decorations he'll make sure his Welshman isn't left with the cleanup.

Thank you, and Happy Holidays!

Hmm, Ianto should perhaps just be grateful that Jack doesn't insist on having a twinkling hub all year round!

He does need to lighten up a bit. Maybe Jack can delegate the clean-up to the rest of the team.

Thank you!
