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 249: Scarred Love
Author's Notes: For mahmfic’s prompt ‘Scarred Love’

Summary: They’re both scarred.

They both have scars, physical ones from bullet wounds and emotional ones from… well, from life taking every opportunity to kick them in the teeth.

Lost loves, parental neglect, imprisonment; few people come to Torchwood undamaged and they’re no exception.


It takes almost dying to make Owen notice Tosh, see her clearly for the first time. And just as he starts to consider a relationship with her, she almost dies at Gray’s hands. Saving her life cements the bond between them.

At night they trace each other’s scars tenderly.

Without them, they might not be where they are now. Together.

The End
