Drabble: The Torchwood Library

Title: The Torchwood Library

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 309 – The Library at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto has a favourite room in the archives.

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

It’s a little known fact that Torchwood has its own library.

Deep below the Hub is a large room filled with shelves of dusty books; Ianto found it while looking for somewhere to hide Lisa, and it’s become his favourite part of the archives.

Here the books that fall through the Rift are stored. Shelves full of novels that have yet to be written, by authors as yet unborn. Great works of literature from unimaginable worlds, written in unknown languages. Alien poetry, guides to places never discovered, treatises on the flora and fauna of distant planets.

Ianto cherishes each one.

The End


Thank you! This is my favourite of the four I've written for the prompt =)
This is a perfect depiction of Ianto's personality. This would of course be his favorite room in the archives.
Thank you! Ianto and I seem to have a lot in common, no wonder he's the character I most identified with, we think alike, lol!
See, this is where the bodice-rippers that Jack writes in the far future come home to roost!

(You need to seriously write this. Really, I'm not kidding.)
I'll add it to my prompts list! It's something I can see Jack doing, I just need to leave the idea brewing in my brain and see what happens, lol!

Thank you!

I wonder if Ianto's library has a section in it for stories that have fallen through from some weird parallel dimension where their lives are part of some tv show and people write fan fics about them....?
It's quite possible, isn't it? I think Jack would love that section too =)

I hope they're from a universe that has better tie-in novels that we got, lol!

Thank you!
I am sure he would cherish and take care of them all.
They're in a controlled environment, kept dust-free and handled carefully with gloves. They're very precious to Ianto. I like to think they've all been scanned onto disk too, to preserve all the wonders they contain.

Thank you.
I think Ianto would've been a librarian if he hadn't joined Torchwood.

Lovely drabble.
He would've made a good librarian!

Thank you.
Great drabble wouldn't mind taking a wander around that library.
I could stay there happily for days, I think, lol!

Thank you!
Wonderful!! well done!
Thank you! Yay, I got Janto approval!

This one's my favourite that I've written for this prompt, glad you liked it! =D
Does Ianto need an assistant because I would gladly work for room and board. I will even promise not lock Gwen with the weevils for the a chance at the job.
The queue for applicants forms behind me, lol! Perhaps we can take turns ;)

Thank you!
Happy dance!
I only wish he had the time to read them. Lovely...
I'm sure he makes time to read the ones he can understand. He can't spend ALL his time in the archives filing, after all!

Thank you =)
Lovely idea! I can imagine this room is very special, indeed. The perfect place for Ianto to spend his downtime. <3<3
It's a very good place for Ianto to relax, which is one of the reasons he loves it so much.

Thank you.
I agree with Ianto
So do I, it's a room full of wonders!

Thank you!
