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 287: Fragmented - Sequel To ‘Keeping Busy’
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 308 – Multitasking at tw100. I decided to continue with the idea from 'Keeping Busy'. There will be one more part to finish this one off.

Summary: The effects of the alien tech on Ianto may not be unwelcome to Ianto, but they’re seriously disorienting to everyone else.

Although Ianto was enjoying his new ability to do everything at once, it was freaking the team out.

He was impossible to look at or to interact with in any way since none of him was in any particular place at any given time. Just trying to look at him proved so disorienting that Jack eventually had to go and lie down. The others just kept their heads down, focussing on their own work to avoid seeing the fragmented, blurry image of their colleague flitting about the Hub like a disjointed ghost.

Everyone hoped the effect would wear off soon.
