Written For: [personal profile] sincere’s prompt ‘Any, any, definitely going to exercise more this year’ at [community profile] fic_promptly.

Fastening the button on his trousers, Jack winced; they felt a bit tight. He knew he shouldn’t be surprised; he’d seriously overindulged during Christmas, a fact that Ianto had been quick to point out to him since their pet was also looking rather more bulgy than it should. Really though, Jack didn’t see why he was being blamed. Surely the fault should lie with the one who’d done all the cooking. Ianto had put on a spread fit for royalty; it would have been an insult not to sample everything. Several times. With seconds. And midnight snacks…

Okay, yes, Ianto was right, he hadn’t really needed to stuff himself quite that much, and now he was paying the price of having his trousers pinch around the middle. He looked over at Nosy where the normally svelte but now noticeably rotund Fluff lay. It looked like a hairy sausage.

“It’s alright for you; you don’t have to wear trousers.” He sighed heavily. “I hate to admit it, but Ianto’s right; we’re fat. It’s not becoming. If we’re not careful, he won’t want to be seen with either of us.”

The sad fact was that despite his job, he really didn’t get enough exercise. That was going to have to change, and there was no time like the present, especially given the date.

He looked over at the calendar. December 31st, New Year’s Eve.

“Okay, I’ll make you a deal. You join me in a New Year’s resolution to eat less and exercise a whole lot more, and I’ll share this last Christmas cookie with you. What d’you say?”


“I’ll take that as a yes.” Jack broke the cookie in half, fed one piece to the Fluff and crammed the other in his own mouth. Tomorrow they’d both turn over a new leaf, but for now they’d overindulge, just one last time.

The End


I need to do the same... *sigh*
I just need to put ON weight. Being skinny isn't as much fun as people think.

Thank you!

Only those two could manage a negotiation to do the exact opposite of what they are planning...

Well, there's still a little while left until New Year resolutions kick in. why waste it? ;)

Thank you!


I love Janto

FF is down again, Happy new Year.

Jack and Nosy gained weight, blame that one that made it.
Ianto did not make them go back for thirds.

They will get exercise together.
Ianto will watch, and laugh.

Re: I love Janto

I can just picture Jack and Nosy, huffing and puffing through their exercises while Ianto looks on!

Isn't it ridiculous? I can post with no problem, but I can't reply to reviews because the site can't find them, and now no one can review any of the new stories. I hope they get it fixed soon, I have about a dozen reviews awaiting replies. Very frustrating.

Happy New Year, and thank you for the lovely card! So cute =)


Re: I love Janto

Oh good you got the card.
Glad that you like it.

Ianto will make sure that his loves work out.
This is something that Jack and Nosy can do together.

Yes it is. No one can get to their reviews.
It says that they are there, but they do not come up.

I'm glad that I can talk to you here.

Re: I love Janto

It will be a bonding exercise for them. Ianto can set the exercises!

Still no joy with replying to reviews. All the writers affected will have a lot of catching up to do.


Re: I love Janto

Yes it will. Ianto is a task master.
They will do what he tells them to do.

It's been two days.
At least the writers still can get their stories out there.

Re: I love Janto

Not a great way for ff.net to start the year!

Ianto will soon have Jack and Nosy looking trim and fit! Until next Christmas.


Re: I love Janto

No its not.

Ianto will motivate them.
And they still love him.
Ianto will keep and eye on their eating.

Re: I love Janto

They can go on a diet and run (or slither) laps of the Hub.


Re: I love Janto

Ianto will have his pocket watch out.

Re: I love Janto

Yep, timing them!


Re: I love Janto

ohhhhhhhh Will they stick to that? maybe Ianot has to close his kitchen and put a chain to the fridge!!!!!
I can picture that situation happening!!!!!!!
Ianto will make sure they exercise. He can be very strict!

Thank you!
Jack knows the best exercise for that, and sure it include Ianto. Happy New Year!
Oh yes, he'll 'work out' with Ianto. But he'll be made to exercise the Fluff too, because it's his fault that Nosy is fat.

Thank you, and Happy New Year!
thats a new years resolution I need to make too.

great fic.
*grins* Thank you! Ianto will make sure they exercise.

Thank you!
They're incorrigible! lol

Personally I only made one resolution this year:

I won't make résolutions, because I know for sure I won't be able to keep them. This way I won't be disappointed.
Ianto has resolved not to make resolutions either, though he promises to help Jack and Nosy keep to theirs ;)

Thank you!

I fear this to end as much resolution: abandoned after a few days ...

Nosy sausage mmmhhhhhh if I judge what happens on an obese dog, he should no longer be beautiful or aesthetic !!!

I want to know how they will solve this problem (especially Nosy): at the time, I thought the use of an artifact ... (bad idea, I'm sure!) or going Ianto put the plan: argh, Jack mood will be affected !!! and I see Nosy go anywhere slamming everything he can and pilfering any donut asked ... (Jack for that matter, LOL)
Nosy definitely doesn't look as sleek and elegant as it did.

Ianto will take charge of them, making them exercise. He can be very strict. They will run (or slither) laps of the Hub, do pushups and even lift weights. ;)

Thank you!
