Drabble: Funfair Fun

Title: Funfair Fun

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: In Torchwood, days off are rare and should be enjoyed to the full when they happen.

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

A/N: For angelsphonebox. Prompt at the end.

Jack and Ianto were spending a rare day off enjoying all the fun of the fair.

They’d already been on all the best rides, twice, had candyfloss and a toffee apple each, and were now exploring the sideshows and booths.

Ianto won a stuffed monkey on the coconut shy by throwing the ball so hard he split a coconut in half.

Then Jack’s marksmanship won him a balloon that looked like the earth seen from space.

Grinning, he grabbed Ianto, and danced off down the midway singing ‘I’ve Got the World on a String’ at the top of his voice.

The End

A/N: Prompt was ‘I've got the World on a String’.


Aww... that was cute, and an excellent use of the prompt! Well done! <3
Thank you! I really wanted to use the prompt but I struggled to come up with an idea. I like the thought of Jack clutching his balloon and dancing Ianto down the midway though!
LOL sounds like something Jack would do.
Jack is very... exuberant! Ianto just has to let himself be swept up by Jack's antics at times, he's such a force of nature. Bet they got some funny looks though!

Thank you!
wow that was an incredible and too creative use of the prompt!
well done!
Thank you! I wanted something light and fluffy after yesterday's drabble, and what's more fun than a funfair?
I envy your fluff, I do! Because you manage the sweetness to be real and the characters to stay in character.

This was beautiful. Jack grabbing Ianto to dance... yes!
Ianto was happy to dance with Jack, it was quite a sight!

Thank you! I have Fluff instead of brains, lol!

I'm glad you think they stayed in character. =)
That is so Jack somehow. I can totally see him and Ianto with his stuffed monkey dancing along the midway :D Loved this! I want to go to a fair with Jack and Ianto!
Being at the fair with them would be a barrel of laughs! I think they got some funny looks but I like to believe that most people would have smiled seeing them so happy and carefree. They have the weight of the world on their shoulders so much of the time, it does them good to have fun.

Thank you, glad you liked it! =)
This was great! Jack's antics so easy to picture in my head and I love the idea of him singing and dancing Ianto down the midway.
Thank you!

I must admit, I like the image myself! I'll bet Ianto was laughing and calling Jack a daft idiot. Or something less complimentary!
Its these little drabbles of them doing fun stuff that makes Jack look so much more than the series made him look. Jack CAN have fun and Ianto knows how to show him. :D
Thank you!

I believe Jack knows how to have fun, there just wasn't much point when he didn't have someone he could have fun doing goofy stuff with. Now he has Ianto, they can keep each other young in spirit.
Sounds like a wonderful day. It's nice to see the boys enjoying themselves for a change. :)
They deserved a day off, so I gave them one.

Thank you!
Hehe, brilliant. I can just imagine Jack doing that! :-)
He does love to put on a show!

Ianto rolls his eyes a lot, but still thinks Jack is cute.

Thank you.
