Drabble: Precious Metals

Title: Precious Metals

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 382: Gold/Golden at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack and Ianto compare the merits of precious metals.

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

“I’ve always found gold a bit gaudy for my tastes,” Ianto admitted. “I prefer silver.”

“Silver’s nice, but it tarnishes so badly it always seems to need cleaning,” Jack replied.

“That’s true.”

“There’s always platinum.”

Ianto shook his head. “Too expensive.”

“We can afford it.”

“I know, but it still feels like an unnecessary extravagance.”

“Isn’t unnecessary extravagance what romance is all about?”

“There’s such a thing as overdoing it.”

“Okay, so how about white gold? Best of both worlds.” Jack pointed to a display of white gold rings.


Who knew picking out wedding rings could be so complicated?

The End


Perfect fic for Valentine's Day! :)
Thank you!

I got in a tangle with my posting, so my actual Valentine's Day drabble/ficlet will have to be posted today, lol!
Awwwwww lovely but I still prefer red gold!
I prefer white, and like Ianto I find yellow gold too gaudy, but red gold is very pretty. It would be my second choice.

Thank you!
I think their choice is perfect.

Great drabble.
Thank you! I think their choice suits them both.
How romantic. Need to be careful with white gold though,it can wear off. happened to my sister. I thnk Jack - being Jack - would so for platinum, and soon persuade Ianto
I'm sure Jack and Ianto will work out a suitable compromise!

Thank you!
I'd choose white gold, too (is a silver fan XD )
Much prettier!

Thank you!

good choice
but platinum should be more resistant!
they will have a very long life !!
I'm sure this won't be their last marriage. Jack will talk Ianto into something more durable for the next one!

Thank you!
many wedding between Ianto and Jack. YES
it's a pretty idea
It should definitely happen!
