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 220: Cleanup - Sequel to ‘Victory’
Author's Notes: My fifth drabble for Challenge 302 - Thaw at tw100, and the sixth part of the series which started with 'Cold Comfort'. There will be one more part.

Summary: The battle is over, all that’s left is to clean up the scene.

Cleanup is a subdued affair. Death should never be taken lightly, not even when it’s meted out in defence of the planet.

The invaders’ remains will have to be burned. Creatures with an affinity for ice are not something Torchwood wants in their cryo freezers. They’re almost certainly dead, but it’s still a chance none of the team are willing to take.

Besides, there’s not all that much left anyway. Ice melts, and beneath that protective covering they were smaller than they’d appeared. Ianto might have felt sorry for them, had he not seen how much they’d enjoyed Jack’s suffering.
