Title: A Different Kind of Shiver
Pairing/Characters: Jack/Ianto
Rating: PG13
Spoilers: Season 1
Summary: The Hub is kept at a brisk 17 degrees Celsius
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

The Hub is kept at a brisk 17 degrees Celsius. Warmth equals languor, languor means slow responses, slow responses can mean death in their line of work. Ianto rarely feels overheated wearing a waistcoat with his suit, yet on days when they've got little to do - and puttering about with the coffee service is the most action he sees - he does feel the cold.

On those days Gwen seems to keep her leather jacket zipped up, Tosh wraps delicate fingers around a cup of oolong tea as she breathes in the fragrant steam and Owen buries himself in an oversized hooded sweatshirt - hunkering down at his workstation to conserve heat until he can escape for the night and seek out some willing attractive female to generate frantic friction with.

The Hub feels even colder once they've all gone home, leaving Ianto to feed Myfanwy in the chill air, made worse when he opens up the skylight to let her out for a short flight. He stands there waiting, under the midnight blue night sky, a shiver shuddering down his spine as he blows on his hands, impatient.

Then Jack is there behind him, breath hot on the back of his neck, body sidling up against his as if they were made to meld together. He breathes words into Ianto's ear: sometimes naughty, sometimes sweet, always enticing. They stand there waiting until it's time for her to come home, until it's time for Ianto to close up shop and slip into a warm bed, Jack's bed.

Ianto knows the Hub is set to 17 degrees. But when they're bare, skin on skin, Jack's mouth latches on with searing heat and Ianto wonders where the cold went. His waistcoat lays forgotten on the floor and his only shiver is one of anticipation.

Thank you so much! I rarely go for prompt tables, but I know the person who put this one together and it's a good one.
