Ianto Haz An Idea

Drabble: Basking

Title: Basking

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: PG

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: What could be better than lazing by the fire on a cold day?

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

A/N: For mahmfic’s prompt ‘Fire’

Ianto sighed contentedly. Nothing beat a roaring fire on a bitterly cold day. While howling winds drove sheets of rain against the windows, he and Jack were snug and warm, basking in the flickering glow of the flames, soft music playing in the background.

Leaning back against Jack’s chest, a thought occurred to Ianto.

“You know what would make this even better?”

“Both of us being naked?”

Tilting his head back, Ianto peered at his lover.

“Actually I was thinking about hot buttered toast, cooked over the fire.”

“Toast is good. Can we be naked after?”

“I’ll consider it.”

The End


It would be bliss!

It's pouring rain, howling wind here and the houdse is cold despite the heating. I'd rather be with Jack and Ianto where it's warm and I could observe their behaviour in their natural habitat. The naked Ianto is a rare sight!

Thank you!
Ianto's used to it, but he wants to have his toast before getting naked to avoid getting crumbs in awkward places, lol!

Thank you.
Naked Janto and buttered toast? I'll take that on a cold day! ;D
It's definitely on my list!

Ianto wants the toast first because being naked and toast crumbs are a bad combination, lol!

Thank you!
what a lovely picture u conjour with this, and naked boys just adds to it oooh HOT.

Great work.
Lol! Thank you! Nakedness is Jack's outfit of choice ;)
A nice 'painting' of the scene :)
Thank you! I like to catch these two unawares, when they're just relaxing in each other's company =)
:D I just can't see Jack or Ianto with anyone else; they fit together beautifully like yin and yang.

Jack's 'nekkid is good' mentality reminds me of a lot of soldiers: my son is always commenting on being that way very often. I wonder if it's something to do with what they go thru in training and warfare? Because we are sharing an apartment (NY is damned EXPENSIVE!), he'll wail till I'm gone to strip down at least to his underwear (don't wanna scare the neighbors) to ramble around the place or walk around in his sweatpants, Tshirt and socks. Jack, first and foremost, has that soldier's mentality which I don't think the Doctor understands but Ianto does and that allows Jack to 'stand down' with Ianto in these lovely moments. Hope you'll have more of these :D You really had the loveliest one when Ianto took him sledding; I kept seeing that as a bead piece.
There are definitely going to be more, hopefully some will be longer than drabbles.

With Jack being from the future, I think attitudes are more relaxed anyway and being naked isn't seen as shameful. I'd imagine there's a sense of freedom when you're not constricted by clothes, and it feels natural to Jack.

I didn't know that about soldiers, but maybe it's in part a removal of their military persona and everything that goes with it, stripping down to who they are when they're not being military. With Ianto, Jack can remove his 'captain' persona and just be Jack, not the head of Torchwood.
The thing I've noticed with my son being ex-military - and sometimes now that I think about it, in my uncles and father - is that they seem to have this 'tunnel vision' where their own personal safety is concerned. It can be annoying as all hell; when it's focused on you, it can sometimes be frightening or annoying, depending on the situation. At the risk of saying something I shouldn't, my son spent some time at Ground Zero with his unit; because I worked in those Towers, he thought I was down there that day and almost went AWOL, even though I called the base to give him a personal message that I knew he would understand. He still doesn't focus on his safety; he puts mine or others before his own. Sometimes it also seems that they will focus on one or more people who mean something to them above others and that focus can be smothering a little. I'm not sure if the writers really understand that portion of Jack's emotional quotient, but I've not been disappointed in this group of writers I do read because you guys seem to get it but living with an ex-soldier really opens your eyes to the changes in them of before-military and after-military. Ianto really allows Jack to just be JACK, not the various hats he wears.

Your bingo and Aviv-b have some interesting items; I know you'll all do something very good to them.
Jack is fiercely focussed on protecting his team, putting their safety before his own, so yeah, I think the fanfic writers really get that, for the most part. The Torchwood writers seemed to mostly get it.

That must have been a terrifying time for both you and your son, so glad you were safe, I'd never have met you otherwise.

I'm HOPING I can do something with my prompts - I liked aviv_b's card better, lol!
Mmmm sounds nice.... Lovely picture.
Though I always prefer crumpets toasted on an open fire, rather than toast. Just wish I had a Jack and/or Ianto to share it with!
Crumpets are good too! I always loved granary bread toasted though, it was my favourite. Can't eat bread these days, so I'll settle for imagining Jack and Ianto toasting themdselves in front of the fire. ;)

Thank you.
Have to agree with the guys that at the moment life is good even without the naked time.
Naked time would just be the icing on the cake, lol!

Thank you.
toast are good and to top all, our two gorgeous men naked!
mmmmm one can only wish .....
Yeah, they'd be welcomer in front of our fire anytime!

Thank you!
Of course there can be nakedness later! Ianto's just messing with you, Jack.

This was just cute. :)
There will be nakedness, but not until the danger of toast crumbs has passed, lol!

Thank you!
*lol* So Jack :)
He does love getting nekkid - especially with Ianto!

Thank you!

Is that for the toast or the naked Jack and Ianto? Or both? ;)

Thank you!

Count on Jack for naked party and Ianto for the practical side: make strength before!
They'll definitely need the energy!

Thank you!
