Drabble: Not So 'Super' Man

Title: Not So 'Super' Man

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, mentions Gwen

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 287 – Superman at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto watches Jack on a roof and ponders.

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







Tipping his head back, Ianto looked up at Jack, standing on the edge of one of his favourite roofs, coat whipping around his legs in the wind like a superhero’s cape.



Smirking, he imagined Gwen would see Jack as Superman, the pure and perfect hero, always saving the day. But there was a darkness in Jack. For all his immortality, he was merely a man struggling to do the best job he could of protecting his adopted city.



More like Batman really. Underground, cave-like base, standing on roofs at night…



Ianto paused, rolling his eyes.



“Guess that means I’m Alfred.”



The End
