Pairings: Jack and Ianto but only referenced in passing.
Disclaimer: I still don't own them, the BBC and RTD beat me to it, and this makes me no money.
A/N: Just a bit of silliness that popped into my head when I should have been writing either one of the other two stories I have on the go. I couldn't work this fragment into either one, so I thought I would put it up here. Songs mentioned are owned by the Beatles and Queen.
Hard Day's Night
"We should have a Torchwood anthem." Tosh mused, quietly as the SUV made its way back to the Hub, after another encounter with a Blowfish.
"I'm not sure there's a song that quite sums up working for Torchwood." Gwen pointed out.
"Hard Day's Night?" suggested Owen, "Working like a dog when you wish to be sleeping like a log? Sounds about right to me."
Ianto mused for a moment, "All goes wrong later on though doesn't it? They seem to think that when they get home to whoever it'll be alright; when really it should be, "when I get home to you, I find the things that you do, make me feel alright... for about half an hour, then the Rift Alarm goes off and I'll go chasing half way across Cardiff only to find it's a false alarm but before I can get back to my bed, there's four Weevils on the rampage in Splott and it takes an hour and a half to round them up and a further two hours to retcon all the people they've somehow managed to be seen by despite the fact it's now four o clock in the morning, and so when I get home to you, I find the things that you do are completely irrelevant because I've passed out from exhaustion on the living room floor."
"Yeah, you were no fun that night," Jack put in, helpfully.
"Its not as catchy that way is it?" Commented Gwen, trying desperately to ignore Jack's comment and not think about the things he might do to Ianto when he got home. From the look on Owen and Tosh's faces it appeared they were trying to do the same.
"How about "We Are The Champions"?" Owen finally offered.
"Perfect," agreed Jack.
It wasn't the most tuneful rendition of Queen any of them had ever heard, but it did make the journey home more fun.
