Drabble: I Spy…

Title: I Spy…

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, OC, Jack mentioned

Rating: PG

Written For: Challenge 369: Awkward at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto’s fiendish plan goes a bit pear-shaped!

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

A/N: This was too long to start with, so I shortened it, then extended the first draft into a double drabble because I just couldn’t leave Ianto like that…





Drabble Version



Best game of Naked Hide and Seek ever! Jack would never find him this time, which meant for once he was going to win.



Ianto had made straight for the archives, then doubled back as soon as he’d lured Jack down there. Good thing it was a warm night, he decided as the invisible lift stopped beside the water tower. He’d give Jack long enough to get bored, then go claim his prize.



“Excuse me, I couldn’t help noticing you’re naked. Are you okay?”



Ianto stared at the girl in horror. How could she see him? Talk about awkward moments.



The End


Extended Version



Tonight’s game of Naked Hide and Seek had been epic! Ianto was busy patting himself on the back, because no way was Jack going to find him this time, which meant he was going to win for once. It really was about time.



Ianto had made a beeline for the archives, then silently doubled back as soon as he’d lured Jack down there with a few crafty clues. Good thing it was a fine and warm night, he decided as the invisible lift locked into place beside the water tower. He’d give Jack long enough to get bored, then go down and claim his prize.



“Excuse me, I couldn’t help noticing your lack of clothes. Are you okay?”



Ianto stared at the girl in horror, face heating up. How could she see him? Talk about awkward moments.



“Yes, I’m fine, thank you. Um, nice night, isn’t it? I should be going.” With that, he turned tail and bolted for the Tourist Office, knowing he couldn’t risk using the lift in front of someone who could see through the perception filter.



Damnit! Streaking through Cardiff really hadn’t been part of his fiendish plan to finally beat Jack. He just couldn’t win.



The End

I feel like somehow Jack's had a hand in all this, just not sure how...

Doubtful, it's just that a few people are able to see past the perception filter. Ianto just had some really bad luck, lol!

Thank you!
Gosh, well that is terrible luck then! Poor Ianto!
Yeah, but lucky girl ;)

Hehe
Love the extended version :-)

Thank you! I couldn't help myself, I had to help Ianto get out of there.

I've done 4 for this week, and one of the others also ended up with two versions - drabble length and 150 words. One of the drabbles I started for this challenge went completely out of control though. I ended up with an 801 word fic that fit the fan_flashworks challenge, so I posted three pieces for that this time. My writing is going crazy. And now I have to come up with something for the new fan_flashworks challenge... No rest for me!

How are things with you?
Awkward! LOL
And so fits the challenge very neatly ;)

Thank you!
As sometimes happens, the best laid plans go awry. ;D I wish I was the girl. Stark naked Ianto in the middle of the plass is definitely a sight for sore eyes *big sigh*
Yes, she was a very lucky girl, but more Ianto wasn't so happy!

Thank you!
Lol oh poor Ianto I wonder if Jack did somethig to the lift.

Like both versions.
No, he was just unlucky enough to be confronted b y someone who could see past the perception filter. It wasn't Ianto's day!

Thank you!
Naked Ianto. What a lucky girl. jack will be even luckier when he finds him
Naked Ianto will run straight to naked Jack yelling "Save me from the scary person who can see through perception filters!" LOL! Naked Jack will of course do just that. Among other even more enjoyable things ;)

Thank you!
Sure Jack saw the whole scene from the HUB!
Wouldn't surprise me - but even if he didn't, he'll know all about it soon when a naked Ianto burts into the Hub ;)

Thank you!
OMG poor Ianto. However, I would not mind catching him in his birthday suit 😉
It would be a very appealing sight ;)

Thank you!
A big thank you for the laughter. With current events at home it's good !!!!

I wonder if Ianto blushed all the way (fully I mean) .... LOL
and as I suppose that the cameras operate, Jack can also have a laugh !!!

in fact, then, Ianto won ??? Go outside made it part of the rules?
I know that cheating is allowed, but hey, there Ianto was taken by someone outside !!
Poor Ianto, it must be mortified ... but still worthy
Ianto was red from head to toe!

Jack will no doubt see the CCTV footage later. I'm not at all sure who won this round, but I'm sure Jack will help Ianto feel better after his nasty shock. The girl certainly enjoyed the view!

Thank you!

Yes, the events in Paris were so awful, I'm so sorry *hugs* My thoughts are with the people of Paris ad all those affected.
