Drabble: Things That Matter

Title: Things That Matter

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 368: Episode Tag at tw100

Spoilers: Day One.

Summary: Ianto takes care of something that matters to Jack.

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

Everyone has gone home, even Gwen; Jack’s finally managed to persuade her to leave. He was under the impression that Ianto had left too, but apparently he was wrong about that.

“What are you still doing here? Don’t you have somewhere else to be?”

Ianto shrugs. “I thought someone should fix this for you.” He indicates the hand, now in a new containment jar, the fluid bubbling merrily.


“Because it’s obviously important to you. Things that matter to people need to be cared for.” Ianto smiles faintly; Jack has his hand, Ianto has Lisa. Maybe they’re not so different.

The End


Ianto's very perceptive, and knows sometimes it's better not to ask.
He is. I think that's because he listens and observes more than he speaks.

Thank you!
AS usual Ianto is so practical and perceptive!
He's a good observer, he notices things that others overlook.

Thank you!
that is so true everyone has things that matter to them, even if others think them trivial.

Yeah, what matters to someone can be very subjective.

Thank you!

Always putting others needs before his own.

That's our Ianto! He understands the importance of things.

Thank you!
Ohh, I really like this one. Sweet. (I was expecting it to be about the coat.)

Thank you! I thought Ianto would be sensitive to such things since he could see how much it mattered to Jack.
Ianto is a man who pay attention to people and always does his best to make their life easier, without questions or expectations. A beautiful moment between the two of them.
Ianto can't help himself, it's in his nature to help people.

Thank you!

I can no longer find the episode in which the hand is in danger ... I remember is someone who flees from the hub and takes hostage hand but, when and why ?? ???
In addition this person knows its importance.

In any case, it is pure Ianto!
It says in my header under Spoilers, the episode is Day One, the one with the sex gas. Carys, the possessed girl, breaks the containment jar and escapes. I'm not sure how she knew it was important to Jack.

Thank you!
