The End


There's nothing worse than a summer cold. Poor guy!
Yeah, that's not fun but Jack will take care of him.

Thank you!

This cracked me up - you got the wording perfect :)
Thank you! I had to go over the dialogue carefully in my head to make sure it would sound right, but I've done it before when Jack broke his nose so it was easier this time around.
Lol love the way you wrote Ianto with a blocked nose. Brilliant.

Brilliant drabble.

Heee! It's fun doing that, people sound so weird when they have colds it's almost like another language!

Thank you!

Poor Ianto. A chapped nose is uncomfortable.:(
I know, I had one a few weeks ago >.<

Jack will look after him.

Thank you!
I had one of those minor colds that lingered. A moist towelette helps.

Sometimes, yes. I was lucky, I was only streaming for a couple of days, but my nose got sore fast. I kept applying soothing cream.
Sooo cute! And I´ve laughed with this story. Poor Ianto! And Jack is so good.
I know, poor pet. He should've stayed home. But Jack will take care of him, tuck him up on the sofa under a fluffy blanket with some chicken soup =)

Thank you!
Poor Ianto. Jack cuddles will make him feel better
Yes, Jack will care for his Ianto, lots of soup and fluffy blankets, plenty of cuddles... Ianto will be fine soon.

Thank you!
Poor Ianto :( *pets* there's absolutely nothing worse than a summer cold (got one of those during my vacations. Never been happier for transatlantic flights before, since it got me back to winter with a more bearable cold)

On another note, the way you wrote Ianto with the blocked nose was pure brilliance! Loved it!
Heeee! Thank you! It's always fun to do that, like writing Jack when he broke his nose. (I'm so mean to them, aren't I?)

Colds are never fun, I hate feeling like I can't breathe =(

Hope you got rid of your cold by now!

Silly Ianto still coming to work despite a cold (that really is a bad habit!) At least he's got Jack to take him home and tuck him into bed until he's better.

He's just so used to getting up and going to work, and will the cold befuddling his brain it never occurred to him to stay home *pets Ianto*

Jack will look after him and he'll soon be better.

Thank you!
hugs Ianto
but by far I prefer he retains his cold ...
I have no Jack to treat me.
Best not to get too close and catch Ianto's cold.

Thank you.
