Quadruple Drabble: Bond In Cardiff

Title: Bond In Cardiff

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: James Bond, Tosh, Ianto, Jack, Gwen & Owen

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto and Torchwood get an unexpected and very famous visitor thanks to the Rift.

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

A/N: This is for angelsphonebox’s prompt ‘Ianto meets James Bond’. It ended up being a quadruple drabble.

A/N2: HAPPY BIRTHDAY angelsphonebox, hope you like what I’ve done with your prompt!

The man in the tuxedo smiled and extended his hand towards Tosh.

“The name’s…”

“Bond,” said Ianto, approaching the two. “James Bond, 007 to be precise.”

Bond raised an eyebrow.

“How do you know that? Who are you? And where exactly am I?”

“Ianto Jones, at your service. Sorry to have to tell you this, Mr Bond, but you’ve fallen through a Rift in time and space into an alternate universe.”


Ianto nodded.

“Afraid so. In our universe, you’re a fictional character.”

Bond frowned.

“Fictional? As in…?”

“Novels and a popular movie series.”

Bond looked mildly perturbed,

“How odd.”


“Well, that explains the bright light and rough landing. Q has always insisted alternate universes exist, if only he could discover how to access them. The old boy will turn green with envy when I…” He trailed off. “He’ll never know, will he? This is confoundedly inconvenient; I was in the middle of a rather urgent assignment, now I’m stuck in… Where did you say this is?”

“Cardiff. Don’t worry, we’ll get you home, Miss Sato here is a genius, our version of Q you might say.”

Bond took Tosh’s hand, kissing it.

“Enchanted to make your acquaintance.”

Tosh blushed.


At the Hub, Bond met Jack and was subjected to his best flirting.

“Is he always like that?” Bond asked Ianto.

“No, he’s usually much worse.”

“How do you put up with it?”

“I threaten him with decaf.”

Bond sipped his coffee appreciatively.

“Yes, I can see how that would be effective.”

Gwen was star-struck, giggling and blushing at Bond’s comments. Owen was his usual grumpy self.

“Interesting people you work with.”

“Don’t let appearances fool you, they’re actually quite competent.”

“That’s comforting to know,” Bond commented dryly.

“Tosh will call when we’re needed. Meanwhile, let me show you around.”


Bond found the tour fascinating.

“I wonder if my universe has a Torchwood.”

“Wouldn’t surprise me at all. I wonder if I work for Torchwood there.”

“If you don’t, I intend to have you employed at MI5.”

“You’re too kind, Mr Bond,” Ianto smirked.

“Think nothing of it, Mr Jones.”

Just then, Tosh called them over.

“Rift spike in fifteen. You’ll just have time to return to your arrival point.”


In the alleyway, Bond shook Ianto’s hand.

“It was a pleasure meeting you, Mr Jones.”

“Likewise. Safe trip, Mr Bond.”

With that, Bond stepped into the Rift portal, and vanished.

The End

Sequel: 'A Man Of His Word'


So Jones, Ianto Jones has now had the very great privilege and meeting the real Bond, James Bond, and vice versa. How fitting.
Indeed! They mere favourably impressed with each other and rather sad that they didn't get to enjoy each other's company for longer. I think they would get along very well.

Thank you!
Hee, that was such a hoot! Loved it! :DDD
*grins* Thank you!

They impressed each other!
That was great! Ianto and James bond would get along quite well.

I really would love to see Bond get home, find Ianto and recruit him to MI5. Cause seriously, Ianto would be a kick arse spy.
In Bond's universe, Ianto Jones could become a 00 agent himself, then he really would be Jones, Ianto Jones.

Not sure I'd be any good at writing Bond's MI5 universe though...

Thank you!

“No, he’s usually much worse.”

I lolled :)
Jack was trying to behave because Ianto kept glaring at him.

Thank you!
Well that would certainly be someone interesting for Torchwood to meet, and very special for Ianto.

great story.
Thank you! Ianto had a brilliant time, and Bond found Torchwood most enlightening.

I read bond and my mind went directly to another way!
WOW the real Bond meeting Ianto ! what a a pleasure!
LOL! Maybe I should have titled it James Bond in Cardiff!

Yep, Ianto was in heaven showing Bond around Torchwood!

Thank you!
LOVE IT!!!! Best present ever :D

I love how similar they both are, very smooth and suave. I always knew they'd get on well together ;)
I think we may need a follow up where Bond meets a Ianto Jones in his universe and maybe even gets him a job at MI5 like he promised...
Yay! So pleased you love it!

They really are a lot alike - I think Ianto may have modelled his suit-wearing persona on James Bond after watching the movies so many times. They really made a good impression on each other.

It's under consideration, I'm just not sure of my ability to write Bond's universe. milady_dragon also thinks there should be a continuation, so we'll see. No promises.
Bond meets Jack and Ianto; if there's a Ianto in Bond's universe, you can be sure Jack's there and probably not going to let ianto anywhere near MI5 unless he's running it! Great drabble :D
LOL! It would depend if Ianto ever joined Torchwood in Bond's universe - or if Torchwood even exists there. In Bond's universe, Jack might never have become immortal and he's still travelling with the Doctor. MI5 would be a suitable alternative employer.

Thank you!
Oh, I just giggled my way through this :) I can so see Ianto and Bond bonding, although I couldn't quite work out which version of Bond it was!
In my head, it was Sean Connery, but hopefully it could work for some of the others too. Bond is hard to write, I haven't seen a Bond movie in too long, so I just had to hope he sounded Bond-ish.

Glad you enjoyed it. I think Ianto and Bond would get along very well indeed.

Thank you!
Bond meets Torchwood cause for a happy dance.
Thank you!

I bet Ianto did a happy dance,and I bet Tosh laughed at him!
Yes, I think they would get along excellently. In fact, I'm sure Jack would probably be jealous of how well they got on, had it gone on for any longer (and probably cope with said jealousy by suggesting a threesome, knowing him)
Although, please tell me that Ianto fangirled horribly afterwards
Bond vs Ianto ....
Costume Suit vs ....

I'm thinking, and tell me that Bond is famous around the world, I prefer Ianto. It is a class well above. It manages Jack knows how to stay calm in all situations in which Bond does not even idea, makes a coffee thunder of God ...
Unquestionably, this is Ianto King.
Bond was certainly impressed with Ianto, thought him very talented and quite remarkable!

I like Bond, but I LOVE Ianto!

Thank you!
Hehe brilliant.
And Ianto as ever was cool as a cucumber :-)
Wish I could be that calm when I meet my heroes (I turned into a babbling fan girl when I was fortunate enough to see gdl)!
Babbling is perfectly acceptable, lol! I know I'd do the same, if I could speak at all!

Ianto only went fangirl after Bond left, 'cause he didn't want Bond to think badly of him.

Thank you!
