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 24: Worlds Apart
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 260 – Odd Couples at tw100. Drabbles have taken over my brain this week, I can't stop writing them! I was struck by this one late last night, so I jotted it down. Typed it up earlier today and it’s 100 words exactly, without editing!

Summary: They are so different…

They come from different worlds, and with Torchwood that can be taken literally. She has her origins in the far future; he comes from a world that no longer exists.

They are so different from one another that they can’t even touch, there is no common language that unites them, yet there’s a strange sense of kinship between them. They share an understanding of the vastness of time and space that few here, in this time and place, could comprehend.

Mainframe watches over the hand in its jar and wonders if it feels as out of place as she does.

The End
