Drabble: Happy Belated Birthday, Ianto

Title: Happy Belated Birthday, Ianto

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack, Team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 318 – Long Overdue at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto’s birthday falls at a bad time for the team.

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

A/N: Because I didn’t get anything written in time for Ianto’s Birthday this year, here’s a slightly belated offering. Happy Birthday, Ianto Jones!

Ianto’s birthday went by practically un-remarked due to an insanely overactive Rift, several invasion attempts, five time-displaced people and a party of alien tourists who caused mass panic among the locals. The others wished him a happy birthday when their paths happened to cross, but that was it.

Ianto understood, but it was still something of a letdown.

Weeks later, when things finally settled down, Jack called Ianto to the boardroom.

As he stepped through the door, the whole team chorused “Happy Birthday, Ianto!”

There were decorations, gifts, even a cake!

“Better late than never, right?” Jack grinned.

Ianto agreed!

The End


i'm sure he appreciated it even more! now that he has time to enjoy it too!
I'm sure he will! Jack arranged with the others to keep Ianto's gifts for when he'd actually be able to open and enjoy them.

Thank you!
I'm glad the team did finally remember, but then I doubt Jack would have ever forgotten such an important date. :)
I think they didn't really forget, everyone was just rushed off their feet and there was no time for anything except dealing with Rift stuff and aliens, grabbing something to eat on the way and snatching sleep whenever there was a moment to spare. Ianto wouldn't have been able to enjoy his birthday, so they saved it for later so they could do things right.

Thank you!
Aww, so sweet! Hope it was a great party! :D
I'm sure it was a wonderful party, and easily made up for his birthday being pushed aside in order to deal with more pressing matters.

Thank you!
Aww such a sweet jesture by the team definitely better late than never,
They just wanted him to have a proper birthday!

Thank you!
Better late than never and Jack had the best gift of all! :D
And better to have a proper celebration when they can all enjoy it instead of rushing things in a brief moment of calm between Rift alerts.

Thank you!
It's always a disappointment when life gets too crazy busy to celebrate special occasions on the day of, but it makes it all worthwhile if they can do it when everyone can relax and enjoy themselves. And that's not an easy feat working for Torchwood. I'm sure Ianto was very pleasantly surprised. I'd love to know what he got as gifts.
Ianto was just resigned to not having much of a birthday, he didn't expect this so it was a really good surprise.

I'd love to know what he got as gifts too - I'm always useless at coming up with something suitable, which is why I didn't write that part!

Thank you!
Happy (oops sorry about the rift) Birthday Ianto.
LOL! Precisely!

I'm sure Ianto was pleased that they care so much as to give him another birthday to make up for the one that wasn't.

Thank you!
Thank you!

Ianto deserved a chance to celebrate his birthday properly.
Aww, this made me smile :-)
*grins* Thank you!

Poor Ianto, he wouldn't have been able to enjoy his birthday on the proper day, but now he can!
