A/N: For the square Curtain/Purple
A/N2: I have all nine written now, yay!

The team were in costume for a Halloween party on the Plas.

“Why’s Teaboy wearing a purple curtain?” asked Owen, who was rather unimaginatively dressed as a doctor.

Ianto rolled his eyes, but it was Jack, dressed in a short white tunic and sandals, who answered.

“It’s called a trabea, Owen, a ceremonial toga worn only by the Emperor.” He placed a circlet of vine leaves on Ianto’s head to complete the outfit.

“Huh. So if Teaboy’s the Emperor, what does that make you?”

Jack winked lasciviously.

“Every Emperor needs a slave.”

“He gets to feed me grapes,” Ianto smirked.

The End


what an amazing servant Ianto will have, and a caring one too!
Every grape will be lovingly peeled, lol!

Thank you.
Oh, Owen--a doctor? Really? That's almost as bad as wearing your regular clothes and saying you're going as "yourself". :-p

On the other hand, I love Jack and Ianto's choices! Jack is really going to enjoy his "servitude", I am sure. ;)

Clever use of the prompt!
I just didn't know what to do with a purple curtain until Owen started asking me why Ianto was wearing one, so I started researching togas, lol! Owen just lacks imagination.

Oh yes, I'm sure Jack is going to love being Ianto's slave, he does enjoy having a role he can really throw himself into *smirk*

Thank you.
You know, the least Owen could have done was to put on a party hat.
Yeah, but that's not Owen's style. Path of least resistance - he already has a white coat and a stethoscope, he'll wear those, saves having to faff about finding a costume. Party hats are for sissies! Tosh despairs of him sometimes.

Thank you.
See, now I want to watch Jack feeding Ianto grapes! Not that Jack would last long, the way Ianto eats them!
There may possibly be a sequel in the works with the grape feeding, depends if I can find the time to write it. I don't know yet if it would be a drabble or something a little longer, we'll have to see!

Thank you.
Hee, now Owen's going to need brain bleach! ;D
He should know by now not to ask questions when there's a good chance the answers will be something he'd rather not know, lol!

Very appropriate icon!

Thank you.
Imagine it's them after the togas are off, ignore the tie. ;)
Ianto feels naked if he's not wearing a tie ;)
That's true! ;)
And here I thought Jack would be the emperor LOL Great pic in my mind of Ianto now.

Great work.
Thank you!

Jack desperately wanted to be the slave, how could I say no? He thinks Ianto looks almost as good in purple as he does in red!
"He gets to feed me grapes."

Love it!!
Jack is thrilled at the prospect, it was all his idea, lol!

Thank you!
So love this
Thank you, I'm hoping to write a sequel someday.
Great use of the prompt.
I bet Jack and Ianto look really hot!
And it is nice to see Ianto gets to be emperor and Jack is his slave. :-)
I was given no choice, Jack demanded to be the slave, he wanted to feed Ianto grapes, lol!

Thank you.
I like the idea of ​​Ianto in Emperor. With Jack, no problem for the decadence!
Both will be beautiful. And if Ianto cold, Jack warm.
Very true, Jack won't let Ianto get cold.

Thank you.
