Title: Stress Relief - Sequel to ‘Deck The Hub’

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: PG-13

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto goes to Jack’s aid, and gets his reward.

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

A/N: This one’s for sendian1, who asked to for a sequel to Deck The Hub concerning ‘what Jack will do to make Ianto's efforts worthwhile’.

Jack stuck his head out of his office again, and barked out,

“Ianto! My office! Now!”

Smirking to himself, Ianto obeyed his Captain’s order immediately. He’d been waiting for this all afternoon. As he passed them, he noted with amusement that the rest of the team were quickly gathering their belongings and heading for the exit.

“Something I can do for you, Sir?” he asked, closing Jack’s office door behind him.

Jack looked pathetically at Ianto, waving a Christmas tree branch.

“No matter what I do, I can’t make all the pieces fit together! Help?”

“You only had to ask.”


Ianto removed his Jacket and tie, rolling up his sleeves before getting down to business, which naturally involved plenty of bending over with his back to Jack. He could practically feel Jack’s eyes glued to his arse, following every movement.

Ten minutes later, the artificial tree was properly assembled, ready for decorating. He turned to Jack, smiling politely.

“There you go, Sir. Anything else I can help you with?”

He barely managed to finish the question before finding himself pressed against the nearest wall by a hot, sweaty and very eager Jack.

“I have a few ideas,” Jack replied huskily.


Ianto’s eyes rolled back in his head.

Oh yes, this was definitely worth waiting for!

A frustrated Jack was a force to be reckoned with, but Ianto gave as good as he got, stripping his captain even as his own clothes seemed to magically disappear. He spared a moment to hope they wouldn’t demolish the tree in their eagerness, then gave himself up to enjoying some very energetic stress relief.

When he was finally capable of coherent thought again, Ianto found himself on the floor underneath Jack. Seemed they’d missed the couch again.

“I should get you frustrated more often.”

The End


Yummy! Now we know why Ianto was waiting to offer his assistance! Clever boy. Now he gets to be the big hero, and reap his well-deserved rewards!

I loved the "energetic stress relief"--LOL. I do hope he doesn't have to put the tree together again afterwards, though. Or anything else in the office. I can just see him having to stay late into the night repairing the desk, the chairs, re-potting plants, etc. :-p
I think they managed to miss all the furniture, including the couch unfortunately, lol! The probably finished up under the tree, lol!

Now I have visions of Jack's fern clinging to the top of the filing cabinet by its fronds, trying not to get knocked off, lol!

Thank you.

Bahahaha! I can just see the fern, holding on for dear life, as the cabinet rocks. Or maybe even using its fronds to scale the walls out of range, like a spider. :D
Poor fern! When the boys get going, it fears for its life! Maybe it was happier before it became self-aware.
