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 1068: Expendable
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 419 – Survival at tw100. This is part one of a four part series.

Summary: Jack is willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good.

“Jack, don’t be stupid!” Ianto held his lover back. “Have you seen that thing? It’ll kill you!”

“Probably,” Jack agreed, “but not permanently. Listen to me, we can’t let it reach a populated area, there’d be a massacre. All I need to do is delay it long enough for the Big Gun to charge, then you can blast it to smithereens. Better it should kill me temporarily than you, or one of the others, permanently. I know you don’t like it, but I’m expendable. Sometimes your survival is a lot more important than mine.”

“Okay, just try not to die.”
