Drabble: Soap Star

Title: Soap Star

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 305 – Soap Operas at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto comes across a familiar face in an unexpected place.

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

It was one of the stranger and more innocuous items to fall through the Rift. Amused and intrigued, Ianto settled down with the old TV guide, flipping through it to see if there were any shows he recognised.

He soon realised it must have fallen through from an alternate universe. Some of the shows were familiar, but the casts were different.

Turning a page, he was suddenly confronted by a familiar face.

“Jack! Take a look at this!” he laughed, pointing to a cast photo for Titans, an American soap opera.

“He looks just like a younger version of you!”

The End


*giggles* OMG, wait until they find TV Guides with listings for Central Park West and Arrow!

Loved this, so clever and funny! :D
I wasn't too happy with this week's prompt because I loathe soaps, but then I remembered the cast picture for Titans and thought I could have a bit of fun with it. *grins*
heh heeh heh
Thank you! It was the only thing I could come up with at the time - I hate soaps!
Imagine that! LOL.

After that whole business with the Night Travellers, you'd think Ianto wouldn't be so surprised. ;)

Maybe this was before that episode.

Ianto finds it very amusing. Jack thinks he's much better looking than the actor in the picture ;)

Thank you.
Man, TVGuide could never contain any stories on the drama that is Jack; that would require a full movie! Vey cute (but I never saw John in anything before Torchwood.... :[ )

I first saw JB in Doctor Who and followed Captain Jack to Torchwood. I still haven't seen him acting in anything else, but I'd seen the cast photo for Titans on the barrowmanfans site, so I used it for this. I'm not a fan of soaps (especially the mind-numbingly atrocious British ones), but at least the American ones have some glamour and back-stabbing.

Thank you.
Hehe! I haven't seen JB in anything other than Doctor Who, but my son said he was good in Arrow.
I've seen a few clips of him in other things, but I've only really watched him in Doctor Who/Torchwood. I knew about Titsns from seeing the cast photos. I do want to see Arrow though.

Thank you.
that's coz he is a younger version of Jack LOL

Great story.
Yep! A younger, alternate universe version, lol!

Thank you.
Jack certainly gets around!
He does, he's even in alternate universes, acting, lol!

Thank you.
“He looks just like a younger version of you!”

Not sure Jack enjoy!!
LOL! Jack took one look and said "I'm much better looking!"

Thank you!
How sad is it that I remember that show but didn't recall John being in it? He just wasn't on my radar then. LOL!

Maybe Jack was undercover for the Time Agency when he took a role in an American soap, even if it's from another universe?? *snickers*
He might have been! Maybe he was there to make sure the show didn't get cancelled in the alternatye universe, lol!

Thank you!
Great use of the prompt :-)
I was worried about this prompt because I loathe soaps, but I remembered seeing the cast photo for Titans and it gave me this idea. Thank you, JB! LOL!

Thank you!
awww he is a hero in very universe!
I'm not sure his role in Titans was very heroic, I never saw it, lol!

Thank you.
