Ianto's Coffee

Drabble: Secret Weapon

Title: Secret Weapon

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 310 – Caffeine at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: After an exhausting day, Ianto has a secret weapon to ensure the work gets finished.

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

A/N: YES! 100 words exactly, first try, no editing!

It had been a long and busy day for Team Torchwood, mostly spent out in the field chasing down a horde of harmless but very energetic aliens. They’d finally been persuaded to give up sightseeing and return to their spaceship; now all the team wanted to do was go back to the Hub, collapse, and preferably never move again.

Except, of course, they couldn’t.

There was still the police to appease, Retcon to administer and a general cleanup to be done.

Ianto felt it prudent to deploy his secret weapon and pulled out a large thermos flask.

“Anyone for coffee?”

The End


Yay! Everyone needs a Ianto in their life. But there's only one Ianto.... and he belongs to Jack.
And Jack's not about to share him with anyone, sadly.

Thank you!
Great secret weapon - I'm sure the team appreciated it!
I'm sure they did, it kept them going until the work was done and they could have a well-earned rest!

Thank you!
I just saw your note- I love when a drabble comes together like that! :-D
It's only happened 4 times in over 400 drabbles (counting the 100 or so I have written but haven't posted yet!) Such a thrill when you write something and see the magic 100 words =)
he knows all of them so well and I imagine no one dared to say NO!
congrats on 100 words without editing!
Of course they didn't say no! They would have been on their knees and begging if they'd had to!

Thank you!

I think this is the fourth time I've had 100 words exactly at the first try. That's about once every hundred drabbles =)
Ah, the perfect secret weapon...

I'm surprised Owen doesn't have a coffee IV set-up in the Hub for everyone. :)
Maybe he does! They have to watch their caffeine levels, lol!

Thank you.
Yantos Coffee can fix anything.
It's a miraculous substance, lol!

Thank you!
Congrats on the 100 words! :D Ianto's coffee at the end of a hard day...
pure nirvana...:)
Not to mention it helps them stay awake until the work is finished!

Thank you! I've only managed the 100 word trick 4 times in the 400 or so drabbles of my Torchwood drabbling career - which makes it really freaky that I somehow managed to do it twice more with my first two FAKE drabbles, making 3 times in less than a week o_O
Give yourself more credit for being able to 'sense' when you've hit that mark. Your drabbles are among a list of writers I look for now and they're always enjoyable, especially if I've had a nasty week, which is going to start happening more soon.
Then I hope my drabbles can help sustain you. Might even manage to post a fic or two in between drabbles if I'm lucky!
Ianto can save the world with his coffee! ;D
Maybe even the entire universe!

Thank you!
100 words!!
Thank you! It doesn't happen often without editing!

Thank you!
