Drabble: Wedding Daze

Title: Wedding Daze

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack, Jack’s Best Man

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack and Ianto’s wedding is a bit unorthodox.

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

A/N: Prompt at the end.

Their wedding wasn’t a complete disaster, but it was certainly… different. It hadn’t been intentional, but Torchwood had a bad habit of throwing a spanner in the works on such occasions.

Jack had wanted doves to be released, but his best man had other ideas.

“Doves are boring! Everybody has doves! On Berellis 9 they use squinches to represent fidelity.” Ianto wasn’t sure how that translated to them having a flock of flamingos, but they’d been nice. Until they’d stampeded through the guests.

“At least it was memorable,” Jack sighed. “Never should’ve asked the Doctor to be my Best Man.”

The End

A/N2: Title used was ‘The Best Man’


I love the Doctor but really how can Jack forget not all of the Doctor's ideas are very 'ahem' practical.
You know that, I know that. Even Ianto knows that. Jack just wanted to include the Doctor in their special day, he didn't think it through though...

Thank you!
LOL! If a flamingo stampede is the worst thing that happened because of the Doctor, they got off easy! :)

It may not be the whole story of course. LOL! Maybe one day I'll write the wedding!

Thank you!
***kekeke*** That was really funny!!!
Loved it!!!
Thank you! Getting the Doctor involved in wedding plans is never a good idea, lol!

Never ask the Doctor to participate in something important... there will always be some sort of trouble. LOL!
Ianto spent most of his wedding day rolling his eyes, lol! He kinda wishes they'd gone with the squinches.

Thank you!
Like everyone else said, it's always a bad idea to take the Doctor at his word without second-guessing it.

Ianto dear, don't hurt yourself from all the eye-rolling! Not a good thing to do on your wedding day!
Ianto's very well-practised at eye-rolling, he won't over strain himself.

The Doctor is a law unto himself, you just have to endure his well-meaning attempts at helping. Still, maybe next time they get married they can have squinches instead, lol! After all, being immortal they should probably get hitched wherever they go, just to make sure everything's legal.

Thank you!
hahahahaha They should have known that he would come out with something weird !!!
Ianto tried to warn Jack, but Jack thought it would be fine, lol! The Doctor was only trying to make their day extra-special...

Thank you!
*gigglesnort* Oh, Doctor! ;)
He can always be counted on to go that extra mile to make a wedding truly memorable *nods*

Thank you!
Jack knows the Doctor always brings chaos wherever he goes...lots of running for starters. At least, the Doctor didn't offer to take them on a honeymoon! I wonder if he even knows how to behave at a wedding or other human ceremonies. Nice thought Jack, but next time, let Ianto deal with planning things involving you both...
Ianto couldn't say no to Jack, he so wanted his old friend to be there. He just wishes Jack hadn't allowed the Doctor to help with the planning. I think the Doctor's seen marriage ceremonies of so many kinds on so many worlds, he gets the specifics a bit mixed up. At least the Doctor didn't insist that everyone be naked. That might have bothered Ianto somewhat. o_O

And how do you know that the Doctor ISN'T taking them on their honeymoon?
LOL the doctor is not really best man material.

Great drabble.
He isn't, but he's very good at making things memorable, even if not always for the right reasons, lol!
*giggle* The Doctor has some unusual ideas! He must be fun at parties xD
Either that or a complete disaster - somrtimes he fails to grasp things. He's a bit hyperactive too.

Thank you!
Hehe, getting the Doctor involved was always going to end in trouble!
He means well, he's just not the best judge of what's appropriate, or practical, lol!

Thank you!
Not Jack's best idea, but it was nice that he could have friends at their wedding. I'm sure Ianto was happy to give Jack that since he's so far from his home, family and friends. They definitely needed to have kept a little closer eye on what the Doctor was dong though.
The Doctor's sneaky though, maybe he thought the flamingos would be a nice surprise, lol!

Yeah, Ianto was happy to let Jack have his closest friend there at their wedding. Hopefully Jack had quite a few friends there - all of Martha's family at the very least. It was a memorable day!

Thank you!
it's Torchwood!
Torchwood weddings are never normal, lol!

Thank you!
