Now what’s a boy like you doing in a place like this?” Ianto Jones purred, sidling up to the bar and a rather rumpled looking Andy Davidson; the very last man he’d have envisioned hanging about one of Cardiff’s most notorious gay bars.

“I could ask you the same thing!” Andy blurted, flushing as he recognised Ianto who smiled at him before flagging the waiter and ordering a beer. Ianto sipped his drink slowly, watching Andy intently over the rim before cocking his head and holding out his hand, offering Andy a share. Andy stared at him blankly.

“If you don’t-?” Ianto began only to have Andy snatch the drink from his hand and gulp down a few mouthfuls.

“Boys night out.” Ianto said with a widening grin.

“What?” Andy asked, frowning.

“What I’m doing here.” Ianto answered. “Jack’s idea, of course. Though apparently Owen’s always wanted to do it with lesbians.” He shrugged carelessly before laughing as Andy suddenly choked on his next sip.

Nimbly, Ianto snatched his beer back. “Now, what are you doing here?”

“I’m er…” Andy mumbled, stammering himself into silence.

“Looking for someone to go home with?” Ianto invited, watching as Andy’s cheeks darkened almost guiltily.

“I- er… I’m…” Ianto put his glass down and stepped up towards him, his intention clear.

“Coming?” He asked, raising an eyebrow before sliding past the policeman and heading towards the exit. He turned last minute, reaching out a hand.

This time, Andy didn’t hesitate.

Ooh, I quite like Confident!Ianto. I think he's shown more and more confidence as the series progressed, and he's been watching Jack's swagger for a while (in more ways than one!) I can definitely see him going after something (or someone) he wants -- in this case PC Andy. Very nice.

Thank you! He's always been a personal favourite of mine, confident!Ianto has, so am very pleased you're just as keen on him!

Ta, hun :)

Thanks, darling!

I really like this a LOT I think Ianto is way more confident than people give him credit for. Oh and I love Ianto/Andy I think it works and lets face it Andy would be the shy one in that relationship LOL

Anyways good job.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2.03 \\ Eye-sexcs_whitewolf on April 13th, 2008 07:40 pm (UTC)
I do think Ianto would be the one to take charge in any sort of Ianto/Andy relationship, and am very glad that everyone else seems to agree with the idea :D

Thanks, darling!

I *love* Prowly!Ianto and SweptAway!Andy. Mmmmm! I've got all kinds of yummy images of outside the club now. Thank you for the terrific piece.

Isn't he the best? A Ianto that isn't afraid to go out and get what he wants is a Ianto we sure wouldn't say no to!

Alas the word count didn't allow for me to get them out the club ;) hehe

Thanks for reading!

*Squees like a crazed thing* Ianto/PC Andy! ^______^ Oh, you wonderful person you. There's something ridiculously endearing about this pairing, and I really can't quite put my finger on it. We need more of this, so much more. I'm a Janto fangirl to the core, but, you know, variety is the necessity of life and all that jazz.

Why is it, I wonder, that outside of fics it has to be typed PC Andy, as opposed to Andy...? Or, maybe that's just me and I haven't come across anyone just calling him 'Andy' yet. It just looks wrong, you know? *Brain asplodey* God, I need sleep. ^^;; This paragraph is incredibly pointless and rambly, sorry about that...

I love the ficlet, anyways!

:) thank you very much! I do admit I'm Jack/Ianto all the way, but there is something about these two that really does it for me! Especially when they're paired together ;)

Do you know, I usually always type his name as PC Andy when talking about him in general, though in fic I am careful to drop the honorfic! I guess it's maybe just a fandom thing that's really caught on. Who knows, really!

I'll always prefer Ianto/Jack, but I think Andy for jealousy's sake would be fun and interesting. LOL

If I had to choose, it would definitely be Jack/Ianto, but I do like playing around with new pairings and Ianto/Andy, I feel, is rather adorable! heh

Thank you! I'm very chuffed that everyone is liking Ianto's confidence :) especially since it's not really as rare as most people seem to think! heh

And yes, much agreement on Ianto/Andy being cute by default :D

ZOMFG Confident!Ianto FTW! I totally buy that he could be like that even though around Jack he tends to let him take control there's definitely a little bunny of confidence in Ianto.

Never thought of this pairing before but you totally made it work! :D
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2.10 \\ Ianto & Toshcs_whitewolf on April 13th, 2008 09:44 pm (UTC)
Makes you wonder why anyone could consider him to be a rare creature! After the hints we've been given in TW thus far, it's any wonder why not more people are writing a confident!Ianto!! heh.

Glad you approve of the pairing too :) I think they make a rather adorable couple! Thanks!!
