Drabble: After Hours Visit

Title: After Hours Visit - Sequel to 'Late Return'

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 309 – The Library at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: It’s long past closing time at the library, but something’s afoot.

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

It’s well past midnight; the library is deserted, silent and still. The only light is from the moon shining through tall, arched windows, laying stripes of silver across the shadowed floor.

A door creaks gently, soft footsteps can be heard, then a thud.



“Stubbed my toe! It hurt!”

“Could you at least try to be stealthy?”

“I am trying to be stealthy! It’s not my fault I can’t see where I’m going!”

“You’re the one who said you didn’t need a torch, Jack! This is the last time I’m helping you sneak overdue books back into the library.”

TBC in 'Belated Realisation'


Ahhahahahah who has an enhanced sight due to his 51st century breeding?as usual Ianto is ready to rescue him !!!
*grins* Jack sometimes overestimates his own abilities. Thankfully, Ianto has more sense and a good but discreet torch. ;)

Thank you!
LOL! Another example of 'he cheats, he always cheats!'
He has better things to use his money for than library fines, lol! Besides, it's the principle! He protects Cardiff, then gets fined for overdue books? That hardly seemd fair.

Thank you!
What a way to avoid your fees! LOL!
Jack will go to extremes to avoid a fine, lol! Poor long-suffering Ianto!

Thank you!
LOL!!! Wait, I thought Jack had good night vision! Jack, you can't fool librarians; they'll know those books weren't there! Poor Ianto, the things he has to do to keep Jack out of trouble... :D
Jack thinks he has good night vision, but maybe it's not so good in the areas of the library that the moonlight doesn't reach, lol!

The librarian might think they didn't get checked back in properly by the saturday girl, then fell down the back of the shelves. I used to regularly stick my head between shelves and check up and down to look for books that fell down the back.

Ianto is very long-suffering!

Thank you.
Talk about going out of your way to pinch pennies! *giggles*
Jack's the thrifty sort. If there's a way around paying, he'll take it!

Thank you.
:D as always well done! Poor Ianto he's a saint he truly is and Jack just can't help it being rowdy like he is.

Can see where Jack who is super human would think he could see in the dark lol! Again well done!
Jack overestimates his abilities at times. Ianto just rolls his eyes, lol!

Thank you!
LOL only Jack would do something like that.

Great drabbble.
Jack's not paying a fine, no way! ;)

Thank you!
Hehe poor ianto getting dragged into Jack's little schemes... Unless it was ianto that suggested it? :-)
No no, definitely Jack's Idea, Ianto's jus going along in an attempt to keep him out of trouble. It doesn't seem to be working though, lol!

Thank you.
Rather, it should take the books of the Library of TW.
Ianto is trying to keep Jack out of trouble, but it's a difficult task.

Thank you!
I really can't blame Jack for not wanting to pay that hefty of a fine. I have kids. I remember cleaning their rooms or getting books back that were lent to friends and then checking to see when "amnesty week" was at the library so I could take their books back. You just never knew where they were going to turn up.

I think Jack's much better at things you do in close proximity to another warm body when it's dark. Maybe he needs to stay a little closer to Ianto for this, except then they'd get caught for sure.
ROFL! They probably both have a library kink, but this might not be the best occasion to indulge in it!

The library's records probably don't go back that far, the library probably isn't even in the same building now, but you can't be too careful!

Thank you!
Thank you!

Lol, they probably cancelled the book about 50 years ago!

Wouldn't surprise me. There's one more part I added that I'll post tomorrow. Occasionally I have the urge to add more parts to existing drabbles and make them into a series, but then it's hard to get around to posting them o_O

Thank you!
I was wondering why it didn't sound familiar when I read it. I was thinking, well it was Challenge 318 so I should have seen it. I keep saying I'm going to go back to all the old challenges and fill those, but finding the time is impossible. I think I started at Challenge 298 from memory, so that's a lot to go back and fill!
My drabble master list keeps getting too big, so I'm separating out the series, but this one only had two parts so I wrote a beginning and an end. I've done the same with another, but again, it's finding time to post and to edit all the other parts so they link ans so people of ff.net, Teaspoon,and AO3 can find the other parts. That was just a nightmare yesterday, posting took forever!

I'm working m,y way through the prompts at dw100, there are over 600 there, so it'll take me a while, but I've done the first 100 or so... Maybe after that I'll do the tw100 prompts. I think I've been there quite a bit longer than you so I've already done a lot of the challenges. You can always just tackle one occasionally if you have a bit of spare time and nothing else to write. Of course, Contest Week should be starting tomorrow...
