Drabble: The Waist Land

Title: The Waist Land

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack is worried about his expanding waistline.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘The Waist Land’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Jack stared in the mirror, frowning, and poked his middle. There was no doubt about it; he’d put on weight, an unwelcome side effect of avoiding dying so often. He knew Ianto appreciated him being more careful, but worried his husband would lose interest now he’d gained weight.

“Ianto, d’you think I’m getting fat?” he asked hesitantly.

Ianto snorted, and Jack glared at him.

“It’s not funny!”

“Yes it is; I was about to ask you the same thing! Maybe we should stop eating junk food and exercise more.”

Jack dragged Ianto onto the bed.

“Good idea! Let’s exercise now!”

The End


Ha! A very Jack-like solution to the problem!

It sets their worlds to rights! Ianto will see to them improving their diet, and Jack will ensure they get lots of healthy exercise ;)

Thank you!
On first read through I just thought 'how very Jack'. Second? I'm thinking that Ianto is clever enough to answer Jack in just the right way to get more sex out of it...
LOL! Well, it wouldn't surprise me. Married life is just suiting them too well. They're content and making pigs of themselves.

Thank you!
Ah, the best kind of exercise there is!
They certainly think so!

Thank you!
Well I suppose THAT is a form of exercise LOL

great drabble.
Of course it is - and it's more fun than the alternatives!

Thank you!
Hee, I like Jack's idea of exercise! ;D
Ianto approves too! They're both very happy, and going at it like bunnies!

Thank you!
I'm sure they wont mind having to do lots more exercise! :-)
I do believe you're correct! ;)

Thank you!
Oh Jack... *facepalm* I shouldn't have expected anything different.
Ianto's not complaining! He likes Jack's idea of exercise!

Thank you!
LOL!! 5 pounds and Jack has the audacity to think he's FAT?! As often as they 'exercise,' those two should only see a fat cell in a magazine!
It's the junk food - all that pizza! They haven't been running around as much since Jack recruited more people. He and Ianto will get more exercise, cut out the junk and REALLY get in shape. Immortals shouldn't let themselves go!

Thank you!
They say a good marrage expands the waistline. Love they guys idea of exercise.
They're a case in point, obviously. Still, if it gives them an excuse to 'exercise' more, they won't be complaining!

Thank you!
good idea.

but it may not be enough ... as an exercise.
Ianto will see that they both get other exercise too, and eat more healthily, but more of Jack's favourite exercise will always be welcome!

Thank you!
