Drabble: Cloud Watching

Title: Cloud Watching

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 300 at tw100

Spoilers: None.

Summary: Jack and Ianto skive off work to enjoy the sunshine.

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

Jack and Ianto lay on their backs in a sunny meadow, staring up at the sky, cloud watching.

They’d come out here on a Rift alert. Rather than sending the team, Jack had decided to handle it himself, with Ianto’s assistance.

All they’d found was harmless junk.

They should have gone straight back to the Hub, but the sunshine was too enticing, so…

Ianto pointed at a cloud.

“That one looks like a butterfly.”

“Oh yeah! That one over there could be a swan.”

“That is a swan, Jack!”

“Swans can fly?”

“How long have you been living on Earth?”

The End


hahaahahaah thank you so much for making my afternoon much brighter!
Only Jack would say that!
150 odd years of living on earth and Jack has only ever seen swans floating on water or waddling on dry land. it never occurred to him that they could fly, he thought they were like ostriches or something, lol!

Thank you, glad I could brighten your day!
Good snippet.!

Thank you for putting a smile on my face
You're welcome, glad it made you smile!

Thank you.

This cracked me up !

Thank you, glad you liked it! Poor Jack, some things about earth creatures have yet to sink in. Unlike Ianto, Jack doesn't know everything!
hahah oh Jack.. great drabble.
Thank you!

Poor Jack, he does try but some things just don't click with him!
Oh Jack... LOL!
Unlike Ianto, Jack definitely DOESN'T know everything. He thinks Swans just float on water, bless him. Just goes to show you're never too old to learn something new!

Thank you.
Bless Jack's 'I didn't know swans could fly' heart, good thing he has Ianto by his side.
I re-wrote this one because I didn't like what I'd got at first. It was all supposed to be just shapes in the clouds, and then suddenly I could hear poor, confused Jack in my head. To Jack, Swans are just big white ducks that float on water. It never occurred to him that they do actually fly because in all his years on earth he'd never seen one flying. He's not much of an ornithologist, lol!

I think Ianto rather likes Jack's cluelessness, it makes him feel quite protective towards his bemused captain!

Thank you.
LOL Oh Jack!
*pets poor, clueless Jack* He does try, but unlike Ianto, he doesn't know everything. Ianto may roll his eyes a lot, but secretly he thinks it's cute.

Thank you.
“Swans can fly?” *gigglesnort*
Seeing is believing, lol! When you've only seen them floating regally on water, it's hard to believe something that big can fly. Jack obviously hasn't spent much time birdwatching, other things have held his attention! Ianto is getting used to Jack's selective knowledge.

Thank you.
thanks for this laugh!

Thank you, glad I made you laugh!

Oh, Jack! You think he's perfectly normal, and then something like this happens. I'm sure Ianto finds it endearing. :)
I think he does, although he rolls his eyes a lot.

Jack is a fount of esoteric knowledge, mostly on other planets and alien races, but there are certain things about the planet he lives on that he's somehow failed to notice. I guess he's had his mind on other things. Maybe if he had a thing for swans like John Hart has for poodles he would have realised the wings aren't just for decoration ;)

Thank you.
