"The Broken Ear" Torchwood drabble Owen, Ianto Rating-G

Title: The Broken Ear
Fandom: Torchwood
Characters: Owen, Ianto, Jack, Gwen
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-A-Day 2011 Day 43. Prompt from dairwendan: Ianto and Owen discussing Tin-Tin. Beta'd by ebineez01. Comments and concrit welcome. Refers to dialogue from A Day In The Death. Takes place sometime between A Day In The Death and Exit Wounds.
Summary: There's worse things than being dead.




Fifty-four minutes and twenty-eight seconds. The exact time Gwen had been in Jack’s office. Their combined laughter echoed through the Hub, punctuated only by Gwen’s faux-outraged yelps at Jack’s increasingly lurid stories.

“Big Tintin fan? Really?”

Owen appeared by his side, reviving the topic that Ianto barely remembered discussing weeks earlier.

“Adventure. Humor. I even thought of becoming a reporter,” he replied, glad of the distraction until he recognised it for what it was.

It was nice someone actually gave a damn about his feelings, but he hated knowing that Owen pitied him.

That meant he hadn’t won at all
