Author: badly_knitted

Rating: G

Spoilers: Set pre-series, character spoilers for Doctor Who Army of Ghosts/Doomsday.

Summary: Ianto is headhunted.

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

A/N: And I did it again! 100 words first try, no editing required!

The woman, blonde haired and elegantly dressed in a business suit, had introduced herself as Yvonne Hartman. Ianto thought she was quite attractive, in an ice-queen kind of way. She smiled a lot, but it didn’t reach her eyes.

“I’m director of a top-secret government think tank; a smart young man like you is wasted serving coffee, you have untapped potential and I think you’d be an excellent fit in my organisation. Regular office hours, varied and interesting work, and you’ll easily quadruple what you’re earning here. Interested?”

Which was how Ianto came to work for Torchwood One. Serving coffee.

The End


If he only knew...
He'll learn, he's only just starting and the new guy always makes the coffee!

Thank you!
Ha! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

varied and interesting work *chuckles*
Some of it might have been - once Ianto got past the new boy stage of being the coffee-maker!

Thank you!

So very typical TW1. Don't leave egotistical high flying execs in charge of an organisation that is the front line for the defence of the planet.

Yvonne was all about the British Empire, I don't think she really cared about the rest of the planet. Not that UNIT turned out to be any better when it came to the crunch. TW3 ended up being the best hope for humanity.

Thank you!
Hartman never did find Iantos true potential, that only happened at T3.

great drabble.
True, though I'm sure that ventually he did get to do more than make coffee at TW1.

Thank you!
Nice :-)
Thank you!

Looks like you've caught up with the drabbles again =)
*lol* yet *ouch* for no change, but also for the big changes later (though being with Jack kind of matters the most in the end IMO). 8)
The new guy always ends up making the coffee! I'm sure he had other duties too, which gradually became more extensive and important, but right at the start, not much seemed to change for him!

Thank you!
