The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

Chapter 1000: Good Excuse
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 403: Fireworks at tw100. A couple of days late for the actual day, but it's the thought that counts ;)

Summary: The team prepare to celebrate Independence Day.

“This is ridiculous!” Owen complained. “Jack’s not even really American, so why do we have to celebrate Independence Day?”

“He claims it’s one of the traditions that was carried out into space when humans first started colonising other planets.” Tosh shrugged. “Of course, by his time, it wasn’t about America’s independence from Britain any more, but about established colonies declaring their independence from earth.”

“That’s true enough,” Ianto agreed. “Apparently it’s quite a big deal when a colony petitions for independence, but I suspect Jack mostly just wants an excuse to set off those fireworks left over from Bonfire Night.”
