Ianto was impeccably dressed, with dark overcoat and striped tie. Stained and torn, Captain John, in his red jacket, appeared to have survived a collision between starfighters.They looked equally glum."He never writes," said John."Never calls," said Ianto."Does he remember your birthday?""Not yet."The Time Agent snorted. "Why do we put up with him?"The identical thought came to each mind. Ianto's blush matched the sudden light of memory in John's eyes."Yeah," said John. "That's why.""Totally worth it," said Ianto.
I like the idea of them bonding.... :) very nice.
Well - they do have something (or someone!) in common. So glad you liked it!
Great I could picture them sitting on a bench overlooking Cardiff Bay.
Nice image, isn't it? - Thanks for the comment.
:D John and Ianto talking about Jack - great!
So glad to hear you enjoyed it. I was thinking it might be fun to write a few more of these...
Please do! \o/
Sharpening my pen....
Love them having a good old grump about the one thing they've got in common.
I suspect neither of them get much sympathy anywhere else.
Hee! That was great. Very funny.
Thanks for the lovely comment.
