Drabble: The Naked Truth – Sequel to ‘Running Bare’

Title: The Naked Truth – Sequel to ‘Running Bare’

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

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

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack tries to explain how he ended up naked.

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

A/N: Title is the prompt used

“So, exactly how did you end up naked on a simple retrieval?” Ianto enquired, raising a graceful eyebrow and trying to keep a straight face as Jack struggled into the clothes Ianto had brought with him.

“I wish I knew. Everything went so well at first. I arrived at the coordinates and found what came through, an animal a bit like a wallaby. I went to net it, tripped on something, the wallaby-thing started bouncing away, I chased it and a few moments later my clothes vanished and I was running down the street naked. That’s the truth, I swear!”

TBC in ‘Of Course


Sounds like the Wallaby thing has some sort of odd clothes vanishing ability LOL

Great drabble.
We will find out at some point ;)

Thank you!
ummmm I really don't know what to think about that explanation ....
Ianto is dubious, but willing to give Jack the benefit of the doubt, lol!

Thank you!
Mm. *nods sagely* If I was that wallaby, I would have vanished Jack's clothes too.

(What? No, that's not drool! It's water, I swear!)
Of course it's water *mops up busily* We fangirls are too dignified to drool ;)

Naked Jack, always a sight worth seeing... Oh dear, more spilled water, there must be a leak somewhere...

Thank you!
I can't wait to see how this ends...cause while that's an incredibly flimsy excuse I can see this totally happening to Jack.
Things happen sometimes, lol! Naked things happen to Jack a lot, but that doesn't mean they're not sometimes a complete accident, lol!

Thank you!
Knowing Jack, that's exactly what happened. Things like that just seem to "find" wherever he goes.
He attacts nakedness somehow, Ianto finds that talent oddly fascinating, lol!

Thank you!
Alien Wallaby - is that going to be another Hub pet when they catch it? :-)
You'll have to wait and see ;)

Got two more parts written to finish the story.

Thank you!

(Four more bingo fics to post, one of which I've had to split into two for posting on LJ. I finished editing the Miniatures saga today, so now it's just a case of posting them. Tomorrow I can work on something for fan_flashworks, I hope! How many do you have left? I'm looking forward to actually having the time soon to read yours - and all the other fics that have been piling up while I worked on my bingo fills!)
Yay bingo has been fun, but it will be good to get some time!
I have two left. One is written, but it is a sequel to the one I haven't finished yet. Which is fast going nowhere. I will probably finish and post it Sunday night. Then I need to figure out how to post the bingo to the comm... without a dreamwidth account. The deadline is Monday right? I'm not sure what timezone the mods are in though, so not sure if we actually get all of Monday to work on it.

I'm looking forward to reading the last few of yours too, starting next week! :-)
I'm not sure of time zones either, I'm going to be hard pressed to beat the deadline as the last gfic I have to post will need to be put up in two parts on LJ, which means more fiddling. *rolls eyes*

Hmmm, I don't know how to post without a dw account. Of course, you could set one up just for bingo use, a free account. Then again, would that mean having to post all your fics there? Or does using open i.d work without messing about with accounts? Good luck, I hope you figure it out. I'm glad I have a dreamwidth account so I don't have that problem! I think the deadline is July 1st, but not certain.
*Chortle* A likely story! But then again, if Jack wanted to get naked and run down the street, he'd just get naked and run down the street, no flimsy excuse required. We'll have to wait and see how this pans out, I guess! :-p
Very true, Jack never needs an excuse to get naked, lol! Or even a good reason!

Jack can't help it - no matter what he does, nakedness finds him. It must be his natural state, but sometimes it's damned inconvenient!

Thank you!
*gigglesnort* That story's way too ridiculous for it not to be true! ;D
Exactly! If Jack was going to lie, he would have come up with a better story, lol!

Thank you!
