Drabble: Barbecue Weather

Title: Barbecue Weather

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, the Team & Ianto’s family.

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Everyone’s gathered for a barbecue: what could go wrong?

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Where There's Smoke, There's Barbecue’, 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.

It was a glorious summer day; hot and sunny, cloudless blue sky, and a light breeze keeping the heat from becoming stifling. The perfect weather for a barbecue, according to Jack.

So here they all were, in Jack and Ianto’s back garden; the team and their significant others plus Ianto’s family, sipping iced drinks while the kids played. Jack and Rhys were handling the cooking, until they got into a heated debate over rugby versus Jack’s new obsession: American Football…

Ianto did his best to rescue the meat and disperse the smoke; he hoped everyone liked their steaks well done!

The End


awww what a nice pic, they are all relaxing and enjoying life together!
Complete with burnt food! Typical British barbecue, except te weather was actually good, lol!

Thank you!
Haha! I'm sure Ianto managed to save the meat so it's still edible.

Most of it. He has good reflexes and he knows to keep an eye on things Jack is supposed to be in charge of.

Thank you!
LOL Getting Rhys and Jack together is a bad idea at the best of times never mind them talking about sports.

great story.
True. To their credit, they're TRYING to get along better, but arguing sports was probably not the best idea.

Thank you!
Lol. Ianto saves the day :-)

I love barbecues. With veggie 'meat' of course. :-)
Ianto is a hero!

Veggie burgers for me!

Thank you!
Whoops, don't ever tell a Welshman anything's better than rugby! ;)

Jack just HAD to poke the beast. He should know better - he's dating a Welshman!

Thank you.

(Is it sacrilege to admit I prefer American Football?)
Not in the US. We love the NFL here. (I certainly don't blame Jack for being a fan. All those 'tight ends'!) ;)
I must admit I like a good Tight End. I'm British though, and American Football is the only sport I really follow. Been a fan since the early 80s. I don't get to watch much because the live games are in the middle of the night for me. There are three games being played at Wembley this year though. Sadly, not my Bears playing.
