Drabble: At A Standstill

Title: At A Standstill

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: PG-13

Written For: Challenge 319 – Stationery/Stationary at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto’s seriously delayed on his way back from London.

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

Ianto hated traffic jams. He didn’t know what was causing the hold-up, but he’d been stuck on the motorway returning from London for almost thirty minutes; all lanes were at a standstill. It was maddening; he’d already witnessed several incidences of road rage, but wasn’t about to succumb to the frustration himself. Instead, he pulled out his phone and called Jack.

“Sorry, cariad, I’m going to be late, I’m stuck in traffic.” He glanced at the stationary cars surrounding him and sighed.

“I know a way to pass the time,” Jack replied.

“No, Jack, we’re not having phone sex!”


The End


Yeah, Ianto....spoilsport!

But the traffic could start moving at any moment! LOL!

Thank you!
Trust Jack, right?

Ianto only phoned to see if someone (Tosh) could find out what was causing the hold-up and if he could get around it by leaving the motorway at the next exit...

Thank you!
Come on Ianto, we want to listen, at least !!!!!
And all the other people in the cars to either side would get a very good view o_O

Thank you!
SMH... give in, Ianto. You're in traffic. Who's gonna hear or see you? :D
Ummm, everyone in the cars to either side of his? And what happens when the traffic starts moving again? Ianto will wait until he gets home, thank you very much!

Thank you!
Ok, I got the see part but if he's got the windows up, nobody can hear...oh wait, Jack's got a boomin' voice...

Yeah, ok, best to wait.... :D But you gotta admit, it COULD be fun!
Just not in a traffic jam, when the cars could start moving again any moment. Besides, phone sex is more fun somewhere more comfortable where you don't have to worry about road rage etc.
Yep Jack would suggest that LOL

I hate traffic jams I get so annoyed.

Great drabble.
Of course he would. He wouldn't be Jack if he didn't!

Me too, but I don't go out much and when I do, I don't go far, so I usually only get stuck in little traffic jams.
On Ianto's side.
Me too. Some situations are just not right for such pursuits!

Thank you!
Jack had to know that was going to be a no go with Ianto. Jack may be the exhibitionist type, Ianto certainly is not. And what if one of those cars happened to contain people he has to deal with on business? How embarrassing would THAT be?!
Jack's an opportunist, he just HAD to try. He wouldn't be Jack if he didn't, it's practically expected of him.

With Ianto's luck, he'd have people he knew on one side and undercover police on the other of he gave in to Jack. Thankfully, Ianto is sensible and can resist temptation.

Thank you!
Oh. You've been on the M4, then. I did that journey once, and swore never again. I think Jack's idea is much more fun than just sitting and listening to Radio 2 (Ianto's a Radio 2 kind of guy, right?)
I would think so. He's not into exhibitionism though, there are way too many cars and people around him.

Never did, can't abide motorways, but I've seen the traffic jams on the news.

Thank you!
I thought it was horrific, and I wasn't even in traffic bad enough to make the travel news (i.e. it was considered normal). Never, ever again.

Next time, Jack will insist he takes the SUV. Lots of things can happen behind tinted windows ;)
Definitely safer for certain activities!
Knowing Ianto's luck, of course, the traffic would start moving at JUST the wrong moment
Which is another reason he was against the idea.
however it would be a great way to pass the time.
The windows are opaque ???
Ianto's in his own car, not the SUV, so the windows are clear, everyone in nearby cars would see.

Thank you!
Lol, only Jack! :-)
Much to Ianto's despair, lol! Jack is impossible.

Thank you!
