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 378: Field Testing Begins – Sequel to ‘I Spy’
Author's Notes: Where am I? I think this is he sixth part of the Drone Series for Challenge 315 – Drone at tw100. I have one more part written, but it ain't over yet!

Summary: There’s a Rift alert at last, finally the drone can take to the sky!

Before Ianto could plan his revenge, the Rift decided to wake up.

Alarms started blaring while he was dressing and the drone headed for the door, jiggling impatiently to be let out.

Ianto rolled his eyes, reminding himself that it was just a machine; the impatience was all Jack’s, desperate to finally try his new toy in the field. Well, Jack could wait for him to put his shoes on; there was no way he was walking to the main Hub barefoot.

When he finally opened the door, the drone zipped out, heading for the stairs with Ianto trailing behind.


Once the drone was programmed with the Rift spike’s coordinates, Ianto placed it on the invisible lift, sending it to the surface before joining the others in the SUV.

By the time he climbed into the passenger seat, Tosh already had their new toy airborne and was tracking it on her computers.

It was performing well so far, taking the most direct route possible, navigating smoothly around obstacles at an altitude of thirty metres. Already halfway to its programmed destination while they were barely underway due to the early evening traffic, Tosh said it should arrive well ahead of them.
