Summary: Jack and Ianto find themselves in a bit of a predicament.

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

A/N: Prompt used is ‘Landmarks’

“What could go wrong?” Ianto muttered. “Why the bloody hell did you have to go and say that, Jack?”

“Would it help if I apologised?”

“Under the current circumstances? No.”

“Oh. I am sorry though.”

Ianto rolled his eyes.

“I know, Jack. You always are. Unfortunately, your being sorry doesn’t make us any less LOST!”

“Maybe if we could spot a landmark…”

Ianto stopped dead.

“Jack, look around us; we’re surrounded by trees. Nothing but trees. And I’m sorry, but they all look alike to me. We could be walking in circles for all I know.”

Jack sagged in defeat.

Where are the others while Jack and Ianto are bumbling around in the forest? Did they lose them, too?

I'm sure I know what Owen thinks is taking them so long to get back to them. Too bad that wouldn't help them find their way, not to mention Jack may not be getting any for a while after this.

I take it a compass is the one thing Jack doesn't have on his wrist strap?
Aha! You've noticed they're alone!

Oddly enough, neither Jack nor Ianto have thought about Jack's wrist strap, or their phones, or their bluetooth headsets. And I'm sure Ianto should have his handheld computer with him. It's very strange that they're not relying on their tech ;)

Thank you!
LOL! Ianto's not happy now... This is too funny!
He's really not! Jack can't understand what went wrong, everything was going so smoothly - and then it wasn't...

Thank you!
mmmm so they are alone and unable to use their tech!
Don't tell me that Ianto cannot distinguish one tree from the other? OMG they are really doomed!!!!!
When there are THAT many trees, it's hard to tell the difference between a tree you've already passed three times and every other tree, lol!

Thank you!
*facepalm* And I thought it was bad enough before he said those cursed words in the last one. Oh, Jack, do you ever learn?

(thank you for the fluff drabble, by the way. needed it today.)
When Jack jinxes things, he does a very thorough job!

Thank you!

(You're welcome! Fluff is always good!)
Oh dear, Jack spoke to soon LOL

Great drabble.
Jack has a habit of doing that...

Thank you!
Haha, the guys at Torchwood have so many problems to deal with, but the most difficult ones are always daily problems like getting lost! xD
They're only human, after all!

Thank you!
This can't be good, Jack and Ianto wandering all by themselves...
It isn't good. But it's not really bad either...

Thank you!
Oh dear, poor lost boys :-)

I know what he means about all the trees looking alike - I was beginning to think that when iantojjackh and I were trying (and failing) to find one specific tree in the whole of the arboretum in Bute Park!!
When there are a lot of trees, you tend to stop seeing individuals and just see... Trees, lots and lots of woody trunks with leafy branches, lol!

When things go wrong for Torchwood, you never know what might happen!

Thank you!
they are just lost.
it is not too serious.
Not serious, but very annoying.

Thank you!
