Drabble: Souped Up

Title: Souped Up
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 334 – Red at tw100
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Ianto becomes the victim of a freak accident.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Ianto looked down at his formerly white shirt with a sigh; it was completely ruined. The only consolation was that he hadn’t been wearing his jacket or waistcoat, and the tourist office counter had protected his trousers.

In Torchwood, you quickly learn to expect the unexpected, but even so, some things are just impossible to anticipate. Who in their right mind would expect a pigeon to fly through the door and crash-land in their tomato soup? He hadn’t even had a chance to eat any yet, and now he was covered in it.

Jack grinned.

“Well, red is your colour.”

The End


*anticipates that Jack is soon to join him in wearing some* :)

I think that's a fair assessment! There isn't much soup left, and there are feathers in it, but I'm sure Ianto will be happy to share it with Jack ;)

Thank you!
Jack will be lucky if he doesn't get the rest of the soup dumped on him!
Jack wasn't lucky. And there were feathers in it too after the pigeon departed...

Thank you.
LOL JAck can fine the good in all situations.

Poor Ianto and Poorer pigeon, it couldn't me too happy about the circumstance either.
Pigeons aren't terribly bright, it might not have noticed.

Ianto, I suspect, wouldn't be impressed by jack's comment.

Thank you.

Lol, I know a person who these kind of things actually do happen to :)
I feel sorry for them.

Thank you.
Poor Ianto, it just had to be TOMATO soup
Of course it did, it needed to be red.

Thank you.
Poor Ianto... not only it was soup, but it was the kind that stains. Badly.

Maybe the dry cleaners would actually believe the tomato soup story this time (in my headcanon, he says to the dry cleaners that the suspicious stains are something like tomato sauce, tomato soup, cream...)
I'm sure he has to use a lot of excuses with the dry cleaners - at least this time it's the truth!

Thank you.
Expect the unexpected indeed!
Knowing the prompt was "red" and seeing you start talking about ruined shirts, my mind just jumped to the conclusion that it would be blood. I should have expected the twist! :-)
You really should have ;)

I think I did one with blood, but most I went for fun rather than tragedy. That pigeon will never live it down.

Thank you!
Tangles with the scum of the universe daily, and he's defeated by a pigeon! LOL
Such is life at Torchwood, it's the everyday stuff that's their downfall!

Thank you!
This pigeon has referred !!
is not it a bit suspect ????
Pigeons aren't very bright, it blundered in and crashed. They're not the best flyers either.

Thank you!
