Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 439: Buff at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: To Ianto, polishing is an art.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Sitting on the floor of Jack’s office, newspapers spread across the concrete, Ianto hummed to himself as he worked, applying polish to leather and briskly brushing to work it into any scuffs, scratches, scrapes, and creases. The smell of good leather and polish filled his nose, reminding him of Sunday afternoons as a boy.

These days, shoe polishing was a dying art, one he often mourned when he saw the sorry state of other people’s footwear. Trainers had made people lazy.

Setting the brush aside, he picked up the soft velveteen pad, buffing Jack’s boots to a mirror-like shine. Perfection.

The End


Ianto is a perfectionist, and thats a good thing sometimes.

great drabble.
He takes pride in his work, no matter what he's doing.

Thank you!
Jack will really appreciate the hard work. Ianto enjoys making something perfect, and enjoys pleasing Jack. They are so well suited.
So true. And Ianto likes old-fashioned things, he's the kind who would polish shoes properly.

Thank you!
OMG! I thought I was the only one who still polish leather shoes, an old tradition in my family!
Ianto surely makes them shine a lot!
Shoe polishing is an art, I still have all my polishes and brushes ;)

Thank you!

I'm sure Jack appreciates the lengths Ianto goes to to make him look good.:)

I imagine he does, and will reward Ianto appropriately ;)

Thank you!
