Title: Into The Wilds
Author: [livejournal.com profile] badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 442: Cloud at [livejournal.com profile] tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: It’s a nice day to be out in the country.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: A double drabble.

Rift retrievals in the countryside could be a pain in the arse, but for once they had nice weather for it, so despite the early hour, Ianto was happy to accompany Jack into the wilds. It was quite a hike, so at the top of a steep hill, not far from the coordinates of the Rift spike, they stopped to catch their breath and have a badly needed drink.

Ianto pulled out a flask of his best brew, pouring them a cup each, and they sat quietly on a rock, admiring the scenery, waiting for the steaming hot coffee to cool enough to be drinkable.

Jack was the first to pick up his cup. Considering the way he could gulp down liquids at temperatures that would burn anyone else, Ianto was convinced something in the other man’s futuristic genetic makeup must mean he not only had a cast iron stomach, but that his tongue was impervious to heat. Lucky bastard.

“Um, Ianto?”


“There’s a cloud in my coffee…”

“What?” Ianto glanced across; sure enough, a small, white, fluffy thing was half in Jack’s mug. Ianto poked it cautiously with a spoon. It squeaked.

“I think we’ve found our alien.”

The End

Isn't there a song like that? "Clouds in my coffee, clouds in my coffee." I think it's by Carly Simon. LOL
I loved, and I don't know why, this bit:

“Um, Ianto?”


“There’s a cloud in my coffee…”

For whatever reason, it's just perfect.

I'm never sure what works where. Seems kind of dumb to me to limit everything, but nobody asked me. LOL

Ianto's fame is universal All aliens know where to find the God of Coffee. Jack doesn't begrudge the cloud a few sips, he knows Ianto will always make him more, and it makes the alien easy to capture

A sure fire way to lure any sensible alien out of hiding, though I hope there's an extra cup left over for Jack after having had something swimming in the first one.

I'm going to need some of that magic coffee tomorrow morning to keep me awake at work. Darn the football for starting at midnight and finishing at 2am local time! Should probably go to bed, I'll have to be awake again in two and a half hours!
