Drabble: Laying Down The Law

Title: Laying Down The Law

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 273 – Loud And Clear at tw100

Spoilers: None at all.

Summary: The team are in trouble…

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

Ianto was not happy with Team Torchwood.

“Look at this mess! Has anyone actually thrown anything away in the last week? Or bothered to wash a single dish? And Jack, I can’t even see your desk under all your unfinished paperwork! I take a week off to help Archie catalogue the backlog of alien artefacts that have built up, and this entire place goes to Hell! What have you all been doing while I was away?”

“We’re sorry.” Jack turned on the puppy eyes.

“You will be! Decaf instant until this place is tidy, understand?”

Everyone groaned.

“Loud and clear.”

The End


Uh-oh! Ianto is back and boy is he pissed. It's going to take more than Jack's puppy-dog eyes to get the team out of this mess. Literally! :-p

Thank you!

Lol! Yes it will, they're all bad puppies and Ianto is very cross with them!

I had NO ideas for this prompt, so I just opened a word document and wrote for about 5 minutes and got this. Not my best work, but not bad either for a rush job! The entirety of my editing was to delete a sentence, then add one word to get 100. One of the easiest drabbles I've ever written considering I didn't even know what I was going to write until I wrote it. No idea where it came from. *is baffled by the art of writing*
Poor Ianto, or I should say poor Team. Ianto is back and pissed, good for him. Looks like Jack is going to have to do some groveling!?
The whole team need to grovel, and then clean up the mess they've made! Ianto is not a happy Ianto, and he has ways of making everyone else equally unhappy!

Thank you.
Never piss off the Coffee God, that's all there is to it. *nods*
Very true, and it's something you'd think the team would have learned by now, but apparently not - and Ianto isn't going to accept any excuses either! The good coffee will be withheld until the team clean up their mess.

Thank you! I thought I was going to have to miss a week, I couldn't come up with any ideas so I just started writing....
Bad team! No coffee or pie for you!
Yep! All privileges denied until they've cleaned up the mess they've made

I nearly didn't write anything for this prompt, but I just managed to come up with something at the last minute. Phew!

Thank you!
They should have known better than that!
Pissing off the one who makes your coffee!!!
Yeah, but they didn't think about that. There's a saying here, When the cat's away the mice will play. Well, now the cat's back and the mice are in trouble, lol!

Thank you.
They will never learn, won't they?
It looks that way! They are supposed to be intelligent, but still the moment Ianto's back is turned for a few days they turn the Hub into a tip. It must be like wrangling a gang of toddlers!

*shake my head and sigh* They're really in trouble. Exactly what I needed after my working day. Maybe should I do the same to my own colleagues? ;)
Lol! That would teach them!

I'm enjoying writing drabbles. It's something I thought I'd never be able to do, writing something in just 100 words, but it's a lot of fun! I'm aiming to write 100 of them this year.

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Sorry it's taken me so long to comment on this. I'm having an evening of catching up on fic that I've missed this last week :-)
I like this. They deserve the decaf. Perhaps then they will appreciate all the work Ianto does keeping things organised and tidy for them!
It's about time they appreciated Ianto, but I think he'd be just as happy if they simply cleaned up after themselves in future - he has better things (such as Jack) to do with his time, lol!

Thank you, glad you liked it! It was kind of a rush job, I was almost out of time and had no ideas whatsoever so I just started writing, and amazingly I got a drabble!

I have an idea of what to do this week, but haven't had time to write it.

(On a tangent, do you read Terry Pratchett's Discworld?)
Congratulations Ianto!
You must be firm.
He will be very firm with them. They will learn to be tidy if it kills them - though Ianto hopes it won't kill them, because that would just mean more that he had clear up, lol!

Thank you!

The Boss has spoken! LOL Loved it. :)
Yep! Never mess with Ianto, he has subtle ways of making your life hell!

Thank you!
Ianto knows how to punnish them alright heh heh.

Great drabble.
Yep! It's about time they learned not to mess with Ianto - he knows the cruellest punishments, the ones that REALLY hurt.

Thank you.

Laying Down the Law

I have splashes of coffee on my screen and trying not to laugh like crazy at this delightful drabble! Even though a lot of stories are fan-generated, ones like this really fill in things about Torchwood that the writers miss. Daily little items that have some basis in canon but talented writers can pull out and you just know something like this happens at the Hub. I'm enjoying your stories and I really hope you're going to do more. :D This'll teach me to neglect my LJ!

Re: Laying Down the Law

Oh dear, sorry asbout the coffee! There should be a warning on some of my fics I suppose.

Thank you, I'm glad you're enjoying them. I'm still busy writing, a lot of drabbles and some short fics. I've managed not to miss a weekly drabble prompt since I started writing them last September so hopefully I can keep that going. I even occasionally write episode-based drabbles, though those tend to be rather angsty.

I'm working on several fics at the moment, but the plot bunnies aren't cooperating too well with those so I've ended up writing other things this week.

All sorts of things happen on LJ all the time - you probably have a lot to catch up with. Hope you continue finding things to enjoy!
