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 203: Stargazing - Sequel to ‘Watching The Skies’
Author's Notes: I think this is the eighth drabble in my second round of fills for Challenge 300 at tw100. One more left for this challenge and one for the bonus challenge, YAY!

Summary: Ianto and Jack continue to enjoy their romantic interlude.

The light show had ended, but still Jack and Ianto lingered in the pre-dawn stillness, gazing at a sky filled with more stars than could ever be seen over Cardiff. Jack had long since memorised earth’s constellations and now he pointed them out to Ianto, though he suspected his lover already knew their names.

“That’s Cygnus, the swan. One constellation, dozens of stars. Earth’s astronomers are only just learning how to detect planets around distant stars, but they’re out there, millions of them.”

“Do you miss it? Travelling among the stars?”

“Sometimes. Someday we’ll visit them together.”

“I’d like that.”
