Drabble: Repairs

Title: Repairs

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Owen, Gwen, Tosh, Jack

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto gets called on to fix everything!

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

A/N: For mahmfic’s prompt ‘Sewing’

“Shit, I’m coming unravelled!”

Owen’s sweater was trailing a long thread.

“Give it here.” Ianto pulled a needle case from his pocket.

“Thanks, mate!”


“Damn it, the button’s come off. Ianto, pet, could you…?”

“No problem, Gwen.” Out came the needle case again.


“Tosh, sticky tape won’t work, your hem needs sewing.”

“I know. I just didn’t like to ask.”

“It’s okay, won’t take a minute.”

“Thanks, Ianto.”


“Ianto?” Jack stood there looking forlorn, cradling his coat. “Can you fix it? Please?”

Sometimes Ianto wasn’t sure whether having a master tailor as a father was a blessing or a curse.

The End


awwww nice! and Ianto can fix anything!
He can, which is just as well considering how often the team manage to break things!

Thank you!
Aww... that last image of Jack melted my heart!
Mine too, I could just see him pleading for Ianto to save the Coat. Have no fear, the Coat will make a full recovery. Ianto will take good care of it.

Thank you.
Heh poor Ianto...everyone comes poor Ianto.
There's always more for him to do, poor boy!

Thank you!
Hes a Ianto of all trades (lol cant call him Jack of all trades now can we)

Great drabble.
Heeeee! No, I guess we can't, that's Jack's job. A Ianto of all trades is even better than a Jack, with even more skills!

Thank you!
Yes, Ianto is just that good. :)
He can do everything!

He probably sometimes wishes he wasn't so good, then the others might do a few things for themselves =S

Thank you!
Poor ianto, he's much more than the Admin there. I seriously agree with that last line; it's why I don't talk about that training myself to outsiders. (Even family members get mad if you won't do it for them, especially if they want something elaborate.)

Great use of this prompt.
Yeah, once people find out you're good at something, everyone starts wanting little things done for them. I lost count of the times I got asked to put new cuffs on sweaters, fix a neckline that's gone wrong, knit a cardigan for someone... There were times I didn't have time for my own knitting because I was too busy fixing things for other people.

Thank you.
XD Don't worry, Jack! Ianto won't suffer the coat to go unfixed!

Edit: Oh dear, I can't English today. x.x

LOL! My brain isn't working too well either.

Ianto will take good care of the Coat, it's practically a part of Jack so it's as important to Ianto as its wearer is.

Thank you.
Aww poor Ianto.

I got an image of him as the mother and all the children coming to him with unrealistic expectations that he can fix everything. And as all good mothers always seem to, he somehow manages to make everything better :-)
I hadn't thought of that, but it's a great analogy! Ianto fixes everything, takes care of the booboos (poor Coat), patches everyone up and makes them happy =D

Thank you!
except to keep the coat Jack: a blessing!
Ianto will always put The Coat first when it comes to repairs. He loves the Coat as much as he loves Jack!
