Drabble: Gwen’s Foot In Mouth

Title: Gwen’s Foot In Mouth

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Gwen, mentions Jack and Rhys

Rating: PG

Written For: Challenge 369: Awkward at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Gwen just can’t mind her own business.

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

A/N: Another one with two versions, the official drabble and a 150 word extended version. Apologies to Gwen fans, but she does tend to interfere.







Drabble Version


Gwen was surprised to see Ianto having dinner with a woman, especially since she knew Jack was doing paperwork back at the Hub. She should have minded her own business, but she couldn’t ignore it, no matter what Rhys said.



“Ianto! I’m surprised to see you here! I thought you’d be with Jack!” She turned to the woman with a sweet smile. “Ianto and his boyfriend are practically inseparable, you know.”



The woman nearly choked on her wine.



Ianto glared at Gwen. “Thanks, Gwen. You just outed me to my sister. Happy now?”



“Oops, sorry. This is a bit awkward…”



The End




Extended Version


Gwen was more than a little surprised to see Ianto having dinner with a woman, especially since she’d just left Jack doing paperwork back at the Hub. As usual, instead of minding her own business, she just couldn’t let it go, despite Rhys begging her to stay out of it and just enjoy their first night out together in a month.



“Ianto! I’m surprised to see you here! I thought you’d be with Jack!” She turned to the woman with a sweet smile. “Ianto and his boyfriend are practically inseparable, you know.”



The woman’s eyes widened and she nearly choked on her wine.



Ianto glared at Gwen. “Thanks, Gwen,” he told her frostily. “Meet my sister, Rhiannon. I hadn’t told her about Jack and I yet. Congratulations, you just outed me. Happy now?”



“Oops, sorry, Ianto. Oh dear, this is a bit awkward…” Rhys was right; she should’ve kept quiet.



The End





Comments

Gwen and her big mouth. She should have listened to Rhys. LOL!
She never does though, because she always thinks she knows best and just blunders in without checking her facts.

Thank you!

She's such a twat, and a vindictive one at that. I hope Jack finds out what she did.

I'm sure Ianto will tell him, just in that general "You'll never believe what Gwen did to me" kind of way. Hope Gwen enjoys her cheap instant decaf!

Thank you!
LOL
Methinks someone might be getting decaf for the foreseeable future...
The cheap, instant kind at that!

Rhiannon wasn't too complimentary towards Gwen either...

Thank you!
Oh Gwen when will you ever learn LOL.

great fic
Probably in about... never!

Thank you!
Really, Gwen? OMG, can't believe she can be so thick!!!
Oh, believe it, she's so dense!
Gwen never listens to anyone.Maybe Ianto should let slip to Rhys about Gwen and Owen. No, he's too nice, and anyway he wouldn't want to hurt Rhys
Yeah, Ianto is a much more considerate person than Gwen is. Rhys deserves better than Gwen.

I think Rhiannon had a few things to say to Gwen after this!

Thank you!
She really should learn when to shut her (far too big) mouth. I wouldn't want to be in her shoes afterwards. She can already subscribe an abonnement to Starbuck, if she doesn't want to be stuck with decaf for the rest of the year. (Unfortunately), you perfectly grasped her character. :D
Thank you!

Oh, trust me, Rhiannon had a few things to say to Gwen that had her fleeing in fear. Gwen has so little character, it's easy to grasp, lol!

So, am I surprised?
NO!
Gwen is so imbued with herself she wouldn't see an elephant in a corridor from the moment she decides to deny.

On the other hand, Rhi is someone who has a strong personality: Gwen could learn at her expense !! she won't the last word against Rhi.
At least past the first moment of engeulade not trusting her, Ianto will not have to rack their brains to find how to tell her !!!
I think she will want to quickly meet Jack.
;-)

Oh yes, Rhi had a few things to say to Gwen, none of them complimentary. It's safe to say they'll never be friends.

Rhi will want to meet Jack, but that was what Ianto had planned anyway. He was going to tell her about Jack after dinner, but Gwen did it first.

Thank you!
