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

A much younger, hotter Alfred...and I'm quite sure Jack would agree with me.

Now I want to see fic where Jack is Batman and Ianto is his long-suffering Butler/Lover.

Definitely younger and hotter, but still very Alfred-ish, just with a sexy Welsh accent.

Maybe someone will write a story about Bat-Jack and Ianto-fred protecting Cardiff. My brain is too achy to even consider it. You're better at the cracky stuff anyway!

Thank you!
awww this is just awesome!
Thank you! *hugs* Glad you liked it!
Hmmm. Interesting.

Maybe also a combo of Alfred, naturally
And Robin our Boy Wonder, our young fresh just learning Ianto
And Nightwing, Sexy Superhero in his own right?
I believe you're right - all that, and his quintessential Ianto-ness too, an unbeatable combination. Jack/Batman may well find himself completely outclassed!

Thank you!
Yes please!
Could someone write a story with Batman Jack and Alfred/Robin Ianto.
I'd love to read it!!
I read a lot but haven't tried to write because of confidence issues ... English isn't my mother tongue. :P
I would never have known, your English looks excellent to me!

Why don't you start small and try a drabble? It's surprising how much can fit in 100 words.

I'm really hoping someone will write Batman-Jack!
Brilliant. You have captured Ianto's thoughts perfectly :-)
(And he is so Alfred!)
Thank you! It started out perfectly serious, but Ianto's mind started wandering, lol!
***giggles***
That was brilliant!!!
Loved it!!!
Hugs and kissitos!!!
Thank you, Ani! *hugs back*

How are you? I've missed you!
I can see Ianto as Alfred, but with fringe benefits!
Ianto is very Alfred-esque, but hotter, sexier and Welsh! Rather more versatile than Alfred, too ;)

Thank you!
*snorts* At least ianto realises his place.
His place is to keep Jack organised, support and encourage his 'hero', and give him a good spanking when required to keep him in line, lol! Jack appreciates everything Ianto does for him, including the spankings.
Gorgeous - never has Alfred been so hot! Suddenly 'get me on the batphone' has all sorts of new connotations!!!
Thank you so much for my lovely birthday goodies - I've got an email in progress but it looks like it's going to be of epic proportions and novel length!!! So, thank you and all my love *squishy hugs*
Always
D xxx
*squishy hugs back* Glad you liked everything!

I'm sure Jack has Ianto over the 'batphone' every chance he gets ;)

Thank you!

Love, J xxx
I really like this! Jack truly is far less of a hero in shining armor than a 'dark knight', that part of him Gwen refuses to see or gets angry about when the evidence is shoved into her face.

And Ianto would make a very good - and hot! - Alfred, though I think, considering his ever more active growing role on the show, he would have to double as Robin, too ;)
Ianto's a combination Alfred/Robin/Nightwing, hot and capable in battle, but an excellent organiser and general support too.

Yeah, Superman isn't human but Jack, despite his immortality, still is. Superman may be able to save everyone, but Jack can't always, he just saves as many as he can and if he has to sacrifice one to save many, he'll do it. He won't like doing it, but he's the one who has to make the impossible decisions so however hard it may be, he'll do what has to be done. Gwen expects him to work miracles, Ianto just expects him to do his best and to let the team help carry the burden when it gets too heavy.
LOL but batman wasnt interested in Alfed. Great drabble.
Batman's Alfred wasn't young, hot and Welsh. If he had been, I'm sure Batman would have been far more interested in his other, more personal skills ;)

Thank you!
Oh damn, now I'm yearning for Janto superhero AU fic... *giggles*
Hehe! We're all looking hopefully at milady_dragon , everyone seems to expect her to write it *looks innocent*

Than you!

Loved this melancholy, but somewhat humorous ficlet. :)
Thank you! Ianto can switch moods in mid-thought, I've found. This was supposed to be completely serious, but...
Yep, Ianto knows Jack so well!
He does, and he loves him just the way he is!

Thank you!
Love it!
Thank you!

Ianto sees the real Jack.
