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 217: Preparing For Battle - Sequel to ‘Defrosting Jack’
Author's Notes: The second of my drabbles for Challenge 302 - Thaw at tw100. At the moment I've lost count of how many drabbles left in this story. There might be three more, possibly four. The final one doesn't fit this prompt, but is needed to complete the story. One of the others is a bit tenuous, but I'm hoping I'll get away with it.

Summary: Jack revives and gets a situation update from Ianto.

Gasping back to life, Jack found himself bundled in blankets and held tightly in Ianto’s arms.

“Hey,” he murmured, “how long was I gone?”

“About thirty minutes. Had to thaw you out first.” Ianto looked grim.

“How bad is it?”

“Ten of them, two of us. The team are on their way with weapons; we’ll be safe until then. Your playmates are getting frustrated, but at least while their attention’s on us they aren’t looking for victims elsewhere.”

“That’s some consolation I guess.” Jack pulled on the dry clothes Ianto handed him. “They’ll regret tangling with Torchwood.”

“Not for long!”
