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 1094: Surfeit
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 424: Hunger at tw100.

Spoilers: End Of Days.

Summary: Abaddon gets more than he bargained for from Jack.

Abaddon isn’t called The Devourer for nothing. He hungers, not for food but for the essence of life, stored in the fragile vessels that are human bodies.

It’s an insatiable need; no matter how many people he drains of life, he still craves more. Each person his shadow touches falls victim to his hunger, sucked dry, only empty shells remaining.

An appetite so vast can’t be sated, not by mere humans, but the one facing him now is different, bursting with life…

Abaddon drinks his fill and more, but it’s too much.

The surfeit of life brings death and defeat.

The End
