Laughing Jack

Drabble: Urban Redevelopment

Title: Urban Redevelopment

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

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

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack’s been having fun.

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

A/N: This will probably be my last drabble for this challenge. I don’t have any more written and tomorrow I need to post two of my bingo fics, the first two parts of my big AU series. There will be seven parts altogether, of wildly varying lengths. So, apologies if there’s no drabble for a couple of days. I hope to resume drabbles on Thursday.

Stepping into Jack’s office early one morning, Ianto found his lover watching CCTV on his computer and grinning.

“What’s got you so happy this damp and dreary morning?”

“Come and see this!”

Ianto joined Jack and leant over his shoulder. The screen showed a nearby building site, where a load of sand had been delivered the previous day. The builders were standing around it scratching their heads, bemused and unsure how to proceed. Sometime during the night, someone had got past site security and turned the building sand into sandcastles.

Ianto laughed.

“Bored last night, were you?”

“Couldn’t resist it!”

The End

A/N2: Title used was ‘Sandcastles In The Sand’


Hehe! Cute.
*grins* Thank you! I can just see Jack messing with people's heads this way for his own entertainment =)
sounds like a bit of Jack lol great story.
The Rift was quiet, Ianto was busy and Jack was bored. If people will go leaving pristine piles of sand just laying around, what can they expect? I'd totally do the same, given half a chance!

Thank you!
heh cute. I keep picturing the huge sandbox they had at the festival in the plass last year.
Probably on a smaller scale, but we all know Jack's just a big kid at heart, it would be irresistible!

Thank you!
Haha! That was great! A bored Jack is a dangerous thing. LOL!
I can just see the bewildered builders gathered aroud an elaborate array of sandcastles, thinking "What the hell?"

Jack's just a big kid, the temptation would have been too much for him.

Thank you!
Hehe great :-)
Thank you! I was going to do Nosy on the beach for this prompt, then realised that would be perfect for the Innocence square on my bingo card. But I liked this idea even better, I can just see Jack doing this!
Jack is such a child! And yet he's by far the oldest member of the Torchwood team xD
You have to get older, but that doesn't mean you have to grow up - I know I never have and Jack's just the same, young enough at heart to be able to enjoy something as simple as building sandcastles, but grown up enough to get a kick out of the confusion it causes.

Thank you!
Now we know what Jack does when he is left alone and bored!
He goes out to play!

Thank you!
Jack is such a five year old, but you gotta love his sense of humor. Hilarious that Ianto just automatically knew without asking that it was Jack's doing, and that he was amused by it.
Ianto knows Jack and his sense of humour, lol! It doesn't surprise him at all that Jack would do something like that. I bet when it snows, mysterious snowmen appear on all the high rooftops. Jack has a sensde of whimsy.

Thank you!
Haha beware of bored Jack! At least it was something fairly innocuous haha.

When I read that it reminded me of the shooting of the Boeshane scenes, they filled up the yard of a building with sand (I wonder what would happen if Jack was really there with a bucket and a spade)
It would be a mass of sandcastles, lol! Jack, I think, has a sense of whimsy and he likes seeing the results of his pranks on CCTV. He's never really grown up.

Thank you!
LOL!! Jack, you're so bad! Good use of boredom :D
He just thought it would look nicer with some sancastles, lol!

Thank you!
*lol* Someone couldn't resist it... ::)

(it's 'building site', though)
*headdesk* Yes, I know it's 'site' not 'sight' This is what happens when I try to write late at night!

Thanks for pointing it out, now I have to go correct it on 5 different sites. Today is NOT my day. I hate Wednesadays, lol!

Glad you liked the drabble.

Thank you!
Love the thought of a carefree Jack playing in the sand.
The simple things in life can bring the most pleasure, even to immortal captains!

Thank you!
Ianto should get a sign for Jack's door that reads, "Caution: Captain Is Bored". *giggles*
*grins* You never know what a bored Captain will get up to, lol!

Thank you!

I wish I had participated!
Me too, it would have been so much fun!

Thank you!
