A/N: Double drabble.
From his first day with Torchwood Three, Ianto had become the team’s fixer. With the exception of alien technology and the computers, which were Tosh’s domain, whenever anything in the Hub wasn’t working properly, from the microwave and the photocopier to the plumbing and the SUV, it had somehow become Ianto’s responsibility to figure out the problem and fix it.
Thank heavens for youtube tutorials! You really could learn almost anything from there, and it had saved his bacon on numerous occasions. He’d learned how to get dents out of car bodywork, how to replace a fan belt, how to repair the binding on a book, how to darn socks, how to fix a lock, how to replace a heating pump… The list was endless.
Owen demanded his assistance when his centrifuge jammed, Gwen came to him when the heel came off her boot, Tosh sought his advice when her car started making weird clonking noises. Even Suzie, back before her first death, had turned to him when she couldn’t figure out what was wrong with the sub-etheric resonator.
Machinery, vehicles, plumbing, even clothes, were easy enough to mend, but Jack had come home broken; how could Ianto fix that?
