Title: More To See
Author: [livejournal.com profile] badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 443: Flying/Flight at [livejournal.com profile] tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Ianto is willing to put up with occasional boredom in order to enjoy the adventure of space travel with Jack.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble.

The freedom of space was intoxicating to Ianto, or at least the idea of it was. In reality, the whole flying from planet to planet part was perhaps not quite such an exciting adventure as he’d imagined. Planets were a very long way apart, many solar systems only had one habitable world, so the majority of their time was spent in transit.

Pick up a cargo here, then slip into the vortex heading for their next destination. Most trips between planets took between two and four weeks, but whenever an urgent cargo was needed further afield, instead of skipping from one solar system to the next, picking up and dropping off other cargos as they went, they would have to make a straight run. Then it could be twelve to fourteen weeks before they reached habitation again.

It could get a bit boring with the ship on autopilot and only one person to talk to, although he and Jack usually found ways to keep themselves occupied, but seeing all the amazing sights whenever they made planet-fall more than made up for the occasional tedium of inter-planetary travel.

There was always more to see; Ianto wouldn’t trade this life for anything.

The End
