Drabble: Duty First

Title: Duty First

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 304 – Time Zones at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack and Ianto have to work on New Year's Eve.

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

This wasn’t how either of them had planned to spend New Year’s Eve, but the Rift had no respect for earth’s traditions, and Torchwood were obliged to deal with anything that fell through, regardless of where or when.

Or what, Ianto mused, dousing another of the slug-things with salt water and watching it shrivel away to nothing. The neon pink beasties were parasitic and lethal, but thankfully easy to track and neutralise.

Nearby, church bells chimed and Jack pulled Ianto into a quick but heated kiss.

“Happy New Year!”

“It’s only ten O’clock!”

“Really? Well, it’s midnight somewhere.”

“Fair point.”

The End


Does yelling "Happy New Year" at 10:00 count as a premature ejaculation? If so, don't worry, Jack. It happens to every guy sometime. ;)

Ewww, slug-things, and neon pink, nonetheless. No wonder Jack was too distracted to notice what time it is!
ROFL! Jack didn't seen worried about it!

Yeah, he was busy exterminating, when he heard the chines he jumped to the wrong conclusion which isn't surprising. Who knows how long they'd been out there dealing with the parasitic beasties? Time flies when you're having fun...

Thank you!
I don't blame Jack for wanting his kiss. What a yucky job to do on New Year's Eve!
But they still have to do it! Can't leave those nasty beasties roaming free.

And this way, they can have another New Year kiss at the right time, that was just a trial run, lol!

Thank you
I like Jack's idea this way Ianto is sure to have plenty of songs.
Ianto should insist on a kiss every hour, lol! At least until the job is finished.

Thank you.
Hey Ianto!! It's one of those timey-wimey thingys! :D
And the clock might have been slow...
Practice makes perfect ... :D :D :D
No harm in starting early and prasctising, after all!

Thank you!
Oh that is sweet! :)
Thank you!

Jack will use any excuse to kiss his Ianto! ♥
Yeah, it was funny too, I loved Ianto's reply. "Fair point." lol! I always loved Ianto's sense of humor. :D
He has a very dry sense of humour which appeals to me. =D
Me too! :D
In fact, pretty much everything about Ianto Jones appeals to me! =D

Yes, I will forever love the first 2 Seasons of TW. *sniff*sniff* Why did the idio....I mean what's his name, have to ruin a great show?! Oh no I better not get back on that soapbox again. :D
LOL! I've been rolling out the old soapbox myself recently!
horrible task but at least Jack found a way to enjoy his Ianto while doing that!
They make the most of their opportunities and it's a nice interlude in an unpleasant task.

Thank you.
And if its only 10 PM - it's more time to celebrate!
They can fit in a few more 'midnight' kisses I think, and they certainly break up the boring routine of exterminating the latest threat.

Thank you.
Just so long as Ianto got another one at midnight everything will be fine!
I'm sure he did - plus a kiss at 11pm, 'cause there are a lot of midnights if you think about it the right way, lol!

Thank you.
any excuse for them to kiss LOL great drabble and eww pink slug creatures.
Yeah, they were UGLY! But at least they showed up well so it was easy to find them.

Jack wanted to get in a few trial runs before the real midnight. Ianto didn't mind at all!

Thank you.
Yuck I dont like the sound of those slug things.
But at least due to Jack's bad time keeping they get to kiss every hour :-)

It would be even better for them if the church clock chimed every quarter hour!

The slug-things are onr of the nastier critters to come through the Rift, but they show up well so they're easy to track.

Thank you.
Yep, the rift does not care about human dates!
It's a 365 day a year job, you never know when it'll drop something new on Cardiff.

Thank you.
