Drabble: D I Why?

Title: D I Why?

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 411: Wide at tw100.

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack should have listened to Ianto’s advice.

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







“Damnit!” Jack cursed, trying again.



Ianto rolled his eyes. “Told you it would be too wide.”



“The measurements are always a little off.”



“Not these days they’re not; everything’s very precise.”



Jack stepped back, glaring at the alcove as if it was to blame for being slightly too small. “But the new bookcase would look perfect there!” Suddenly his expression changed. “I know! All we have to do is take it apart again, cut a centimetre off all the shelves, and put it back together. Then it’ll fit!”



Ianto closed his eyes. It was going to be a long day!



The End

*cringes* Poor, poor Ianto...this ain't gonna be fun...
But knowing Ianto, it will all be done with meticulous efficiency and minimum need for clean-up afterwards, then Jack will be happy with his shelves.

Shelves are on my mind a lot because I've been constructing them myself recently. I've put together one shelf unit and 5 small cabinets by myself, and had an extra pair of hands for putting up the big shelf unit and getting the first of the sets of wall shelves back up. Two more sets to go, one of which I can handle by myself, the other I'll need help for. I'm a dab hand with flat-pack furniture!

It's good to get some of my books back home and where they belong.

Thank you!

Lol, darn that evil furniture...

I know just how he feels too ;)

Thank you!

If only Jack had a sonic screwdriver...
They don't work on wood though...

Ianto will make everything right and keep Jack from making a mess.

Thank you!

I meant the screws, or I'm I still missing something?

Oh, that's a good point! Might remove the screws faster. Ianto will still have to saw a bit off the shelves manually though.

That would have been a great "IKEA" moment.:)
The probably bought the shelves at IKEA. Either there or ARGOS, where I got mine, lol!
I feel for Ianto, I really do.

Great drabble.
He has a lot to put up with, poor boy.

Thank you.
Optimistic Jack. We know who'll be doing all the work. Ianto can do anything - even keeping Jack in order
Yes, poor Ianto could have done without yet another job!

Thank you!
yes it will but at least Jack had a good idea ..... LOL
Ianto will fix everything, but Jack can clean up after.

Thank you!
