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!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 1024: Police Protection
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 408: Copper at tw100.

Summary: Jack doesn’t care that the Cardiff police don’t like Torchwood.

Torchwood wasn’t well liked by the Cardiff heddlu, which was understandable. Trouble was, they ran roughshod over everyone from uniformed coppers on the beat to inspectors and crime scene people.

It was easy to think that Jack and his team should be more polite, but in an emergency there was seldom time to ask people to leave, and wait while they made up their minds. In life-or-death situations, if sending the police packing saved them from attack by something they weren’t prepared to deal with… Well, Jack would rather have them alive and hating him than dead.

Simple as that.
