Drabble: Piece Of Cake – Sequel to ‘Easy As Pie…’

Title: Piece Of Cake – Sequel to ‘Easy As Pie…

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack, Owen.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 345: Cake at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto returns to be greeted by the disaster that is Jack and Owen’s attempt at constructing flat-pack furniture.

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







Walking into Jack’s office, Ianto took in the sheepish expressions on Jack and Owen’s faces then turned his attention to the lopsided wooden… object in front of them. Calling it a cabinet would have been too generous.



“What on earth did you do to it?”



“Ummm, we must’ve gone wrong somewhere,” Jack muttered, avoiding Ianto’s eyes.



“Out, both of you! I’ll see if it’s salvageable.”



They didn’t need telling twice.



Twenty minutes later, Ianto emerged.



“Did you save it?” Jack asked nervously.



Ianto nodded. “I don’t know what’s wrong with you two. Putting those together is a piece of cake.”



The End

Competent Ianto and clueless Jack and Owen, love it :)
Owen can put a person back together, but not a cabinet. Jack can fix alien tech, but flat-pack furniture defeats him.Where would they be without Ianto?

Thank you!
I'm sure actually reading the instructions helped, lol!
It would have helped Jack and Owen...

Thank you!
Ye they are for Ianto anyway lol.
Ianto is highly skilled in many areas ;)

Thank you!

Patience, and a mind for the details, are virtues necessary for flat pack furniture!

Neither Owen nor Jack is especially patient, but Ianto, thankfully, is.

Thank you.
of course, he must have read the instructions!
Sometimes, even the instructions don't help - I've read some crazy ones that make no sense!

Thank you!
Hehe, well done Ianto!
The flat-pack furniture king as well as the coffee king!

Thank you!
That would be my reaction. I always find flat-pack furniture pretty easy. ;)
So do I, I've built a ton of it, often on my own.

Thank you!
