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 382: Answers - Sequel to ‘Questions’
Author's Notes: I believe this could be part ten of the Drone Series. Written for Challenge 315 – Drone at tw100.

Summary: The more answers they get, the less they seem to know. Mysteries multiply.

Hart smirked at the team; Ianto resisted the temptation to rearrange his face a little.

“I asked you a question.”

“Oh come on, lighten up! All business all the time; it’s not a good look on you.”

Ianto gritted his teeth, praying for patience.

“What came through the Rift?”

“Don’t know, didn’t see. Whatever it was, it had already gone when I got here.”

“Gone where?”

“If I knew that, I’d have gone after it. Figured your doohickey could track it.” Hart glanced towards the drone.


“On it; scanning for Rift residue.” She paused. “Okay, I have a trail.”


With Tosh and their drone leading the way, Torchwood set off tracking the mysterious new arrival.

Hart went with them; he wasn’t given any choice in the matter, frogmarched along between Owen and Gwen. Not that he seemed to mind; in fact he looked like he was thoroughly enjoying himself. Jack found his attitude annoying.

“Why exactly are you here, John?”

“I was bored, alright? Earth’s not exactly the Vegas Galaxy. Thought maybe if I did something useful, you’d let me stick around for a bit.” He shrugged awkwardly.

“If you’re so bored, why not leave earth?”

“Because I can’t.”
