Drabble: Cold Comfort

Title: Cold Comfort

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack, mentions the team

Rating: PG

Written For: Challenge 301 - Frost at tw100

Spoilers: None.

Summary: Ianto and Jack are trapped by malicious aliens. This one’s a bit dark.

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

Ianto snuggled closer to Jack, pulling the blankets tightly around them both as he watched fingers of frost spreading lacy patterns across the SUV’s windows.

Jack was cold, almost frozen solid by the aliens they’d been hunting, but in here with the emergency heat packs and thermal blankets, the doors securely locked and the windows tightly closed, they’d be safe enough.

Hopefully it wouldn’t be long before the rest of the team arrived with flame-throwers and heat grenades. Then Ianto would willingly join the fight against the ice demons who’d killed his captain for fun.

They were going to pay.

TBC in ‘Defrosting Jack


In a twisted - and rather sad, really - way I'm always glad when it is Jack that dies. At least he can come back, while Ianto and the others wouldn't be able to. Me thinking that always feels so wrong ^_^"

Lovely little drabble, though I don't think you need to warn for "dark", it's very tame, imho. :)
It wasn't really a warning, more of an observation because it's such a contrast to my previous drabble but they both came from the same prompt.

Jack thinks the way you do though, he's glad when it's him that dies rather than one of his team, because it means not losing someone he cares about.

Thank you.
aha Ianto the avenger!
He wants to make those ice demons extra crispy! I don't blame him either.

Thank you.
Did anything snap off? Heh heh.
Not as far as Ianto's knows, but he's too busy trying to thaw Jack out to check!

Thank you.
a dead Jacksicle
a SERIOUSLY pissed off Ianto plotting moogly revenge....
great drabble!

can this be a longer drabble :D? Ianto is soooo creative! :D
I'll have to try to come up with a sequel.

Moogly revenge, I love that!

Yep, the demons won't like Ianto now they've made him angry! They are in biiiiiiiig trouble!

Thank you.
This gave me the chills!
YAY! Thank you!

It's quite a bit darker than the previous one.
You know Jack loves it when Ianto gets all protective and goes after anyone who hurts him.
He really does, and those ice demons will be toast once the rest of the team arrive with suitable weapons!

Thank you!
Now those aliens are in for it. You don't mess with what belongs to Ianto.
They have no idea who they're messing with, and I have a feeling they won't live long enough to regret it!

Thank you.
Hell hath no fury like a pissed-off Ianto. Those aliens are going to regret coming to Earth and killing Jack.

While coming to earth may not have been entirely their choice due to the Rift, what they did when they got there definitely WAS their choice. I have a feeling they won't live long enough to regret it!

Thank you!
Oh dear those Aliens dont know what they have let themselves in for, an angry Ianto is something to watch out for.

Great drabble.
They'll find out what a bad idea it was, but they won't have long to regret it!

Thank you.
Those aliens won't be having so much fun once Ianto is through with them...
I think you're right, Ianto can be quite vindictive when someone he loves is hurt.

Thsnk you.
Love it! And I so wouldn't want to be in those ice demons's shoes (do ice demons wear shoes?) when Ianto comes after them!

Seems to me this weeks prompt might work well for a sequel to this! (*Makes Jack's puppy-dog face*)
It will, I've already started writing it =)

Maybe they wear snowshoes, lol! (Sorry, really bad joke!)

Oh yes, those demons are in trouble, though they'll probably have to wait until the third drabble to get their comeuppance. I might melt them as a second fill for this week's prompt. Give them an early thaw!

Thank you!

Ugh, poor Jack! And poor Ianto, having to suffer through Jack's death.
I don't think either of them enjoyed it.

The demons will pay though.

Thank you.

Aww poor boys.

I'm sure Ianto will be able to think of some fun ways to warm Jack up once he comes back to life and the aliens have been dealt with. :-)
I think they'll be too busy for any fun, at least for now. There's a serious threat to deal with.

The first sequel is up, I think there are four more parts written. The last one doesn't fit the prompt and one of the others is a bit tenuous, but they'll all be linked so people can find them.

Thank you.
argh Poor Jack.
but I'm sure Ianto knows an excellent method of heating ...
Ianto will warm him up again, but they won't get to have fun until the battle is over.

Thank you.
