Drabble: Not Our Problem

Title: Not Our Problem
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 428: London at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Jack and Ianto watch TV at Christmas.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

It’s Christmas Day. Slouched on the comfy sofa in Ianto’s flat, he and Jack are too stuffed from dinner to even contemplate moving. Jack picks up the remote and flicks the TV on for the BBC news, followed by the Queen’s speech, but closes his eyes and yawns, paying no attention to what’s on the screen.

“Huh,” says Ianto. “London’s being invaded by aliens again.”

“Of course it is; it’s Christmas,” Jack replies. “Not our problem though. The Doctor and UNIT can handle it.”

“You know the best thing about Christmas?”


“No. It’s not having to save the world.”

The End


I am sure that for once they are very happy to be in Wales during the festivities!
Oh yes, it means they can literally sit this one out!

Thank you!
They certainly need a day off.

Great drabble.
They work so hard the rest of the year, a day off shouldn't be too much to ask for.

Thank you!
One day off isn't too much to ask.Let The Doctor handle it.. Happy Christmas Jack and Ianto
They certainly deserve the break!

They (and I) wish you a Happy Christmas too ;)

Thank you!

Amen! If they won't pay the toll to come across the Severn, The Doctor can have them! Cardiff is entitled to one day off a year!

Torchwood do deserve a break now and then! I'm sure the Doctor has everything in hand.

Thank you!
