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 1060: What’s This?
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 417: Slice at tw100.

Summary: There are many ways of identifying alien tech…

Cataloguing everything in the archives was slow going. Whenever Ianto couldn’t identify something he had to take it upstairs and ask Jack if he knew what it was.

Naturally, when he appeared in the main Hub everyone demanded coffee, so putting the latest device down he set about making some.

“How much longer?” Owen complained, leaning on the counter. “And what’s this? Looks like part of a lightsaber!” Picking the device up, Owen waved it around, accidentally pressing a small button. With a whooshing sound, he sliced clean through the kitchen table.


Ianto sighed. “Apparently it’s a laser knife.”
