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 162: The Rift In Autumn
Author's Notes: The first of two drabbles for Challenge 296 – Autumn In Cardiff at tw100.

Summary: Autumn in Cardiff can bring unanticipated hazards, as Ianto discovers.

Ianto stomped into the Hub, muttering under his breath, with Jack trailing along behind him.

“Ianto, calm down! It was a work related accident, Torchwood will pay for the repairs.”

“What happened?” Tosh asked, looking concerned.

“The Rift’s gone mental, that’s what! I think it has a grudge against me,” Ianto groaned, shoving his hands through his hair, making it stick up in all directions and dislodging bits of leaf.

“It’s not mental, just seasonal,” Jack explained, patting him comfortingly on the shoulder.

“Oh yeah? That’s no excuse for it to drop an entire bloody alien tree on my car!”
