Drabble: Wild Ride

Title: Wild Ride
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Jack, Ianto, Myfanwy.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 416: Grip at tw100.
Spoilers: Fragments.
Summary: Catching a Pterodactyl is not an exact science.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

This wasn’t how it was supposed to go, Jack thought as he clung to the Pterodactyl’s leg, high above the warehouse floor. He’d meant to inject it while it was on the ground, but when it launched itself into the air, he’d reacted automatically, grabbing on to keep it from getting away. It was one hell of a wild ride!

On the bright side, he’d managed to administer the tranquillizer, despite the awkward angle and only having one hand to work with.

On the down side, he was fast losing his grip.

Falling into Jones’s arms was an unexpected bonus.

The End


Sounds like fun.:)
I wouldn't do it, I don't like heights!

Thank you!

In Jacks case he would take the risk just because he will survive it.

I would at least take precautions like a parachute.:D
LOL! I don't think a parachute would have helped, the warehouse wasn't tall enough.

Jack can survive anything, but Ianto didn't know that. Trying to catch a falling person isn't a good idea, Ianto could have been hurt. Not that he would have thought about that - he needed Jack as his way in to Torchwood.

Luckily I won't ever be in a situation like that to do so.:)

I did think it odd for Jack not to think how it would look from Iantos perspective.

I remember it was Owen and Tosh that Jack encourage to join the rebuilt Torchwood.

Ianto, he tried to brush off at first. He couldn't attempt use the retcon drug like with Gwen because Ianto had already worked for the old Torchwood.
Ianto was Torchwood One, so Jack didn't want him in HIS Torchwood, but Ianto wore his resistance down.

Jack probably wasn't thinking, he just reacted, and so did Ianto.

How come Jack didn't consider retraining Ianto since it wasn't like the latter ran the old Torchwood?

Maybe Jack thought it was too risky or trusted his instincts because Ianto did have a secret agenda?

Living in the moment. How impulsive!.:)
With eternity to live through, living in the moment is the only way to go.

Jack just felt everyone at TW 1 was tainted by One's policies - if it's alien,it's ours, and The Doctor is public enemy number one. It would have been hard to trust anyone from there, but in the end his attraction to Ianto overruled his caution.

Thank you!

A lie detector wouldn't cut it.
No, probably not!

Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies.*sings*

I guess Jack couldn't resist the suit. Ianto, the seducer!
Ianto had to get in for his own reasons (Lisa) No matter what it took. In a way, Jack didn't stand a chance.


Although Ianto reciprocated later on.
They worked things out, and they were happy together in the end.

Your userpic pretty much sums it up.
Yeah, I love that one =)

I'm jealous.
Of who? I mean, I'd kiss either one ;)

I'd leave it up your discretion.:D


Watch out you don't hurt yourself.:)
Definitely a bobus that lol.

Great drabble.
Jack certainly enjoyed it ;)

Thank you.

Not a bonus, a reward for a job well done, er, sort of....

LOL! Yeah, Jack would probably see it that way!

Thank you!
Jack will do anything to get into Ianto's arms, and started early
I'm sure you know the saying "Start as you mean to go on" ;)

Thank you.
mmmmm and that was when Jack had the chance to have a sample of Ianto .....
And yet they didn't kiss...

They got there in the end though.

Thank you!
