Drabble: Sentimental Value

Title: Sentimental Value

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, mentions Lisa

Rating: G

Spoilers: Not really.

Summary: Some things are special because of the memories they hold.

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

A/N: For one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 316 earlier this 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. Prompt at the end.

Poking about Ianto’s living room one evening while Ianto made coffee, Jack found something that surprised him. As Ianto turned from setting their drinks on the coffee table, Jack gestured towards the novelty Welsh dragon ashtray on the shelf.

“Didn’t know you smoked.”

“I don’t, not anymore. Used to back in London. Quit after I almost set fire to Lisa’s bed with a late-night fag.” He picked up the ashtray. “I should probably throw it out but… Lisa gave it to me as a joke a couple of months after we started dating.”

“Sentimental value?”

Ianto nodded, smiling.

“Happy memories.”

The End

A/N2: Prompt used is ‘The Ashtray’


It is nice that he still could remember the happy moments with her
I think at first he could only remember her as the cyberwoman, but now he's rediscovered his other memories of her.

Thank you!
Great drabble
Thank you!
That was great.

Ianto should keep it, since it's a good memory of his time with Lisa. And Jack understands completely.
I expect Jack has a few treasured mementos that remind him of special people in his life, he wouldn't begrudge Ianto the things that remind of the good times before Canary Wharf.

Thank you!
I think he probably has a few things dotted about, but being Welsh, the dragon is one of his favourites.

Thank you!
Sweet little fic.
Thank you! I figure Ianto would have some mementos of Lisa that he can't bear to part with. Jack would understand.
That's it keeps memories of her life with Lisa. Before the events ...
Yeah, Ianto needs to hold on to his good memories, so that the memories of the end of Lisa's life aren't all that he has.

Thank you!
Thank you! Sentimental value is so much more important than monetary value.
