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 390: Interesting Offers - Sequel to ‘Welcoming Visitors’
Author's Notes: My 150th drabble post this year! (It’s probably closer to 170 individual drabbles what with all the double drabbles I’ve been posting, but I’m only counting the number of times I’ve posted one or more Torchwood drabbles.)
This is also Part 18 of the Drone series! Written for Challenge 315 – Drone at tw100.

N.B. The second drabble of this pair sort of switches to Hart’s POV.

Summary: With the Doctor occupied, something else capture’s Donna’s interest.

Jack scowled at Hart.

“That’s keeping him out of trouble. He’s an unwanted visitor; we can’t decide what to do with him. Excuse me, there’s something I need to ask the Doc.” Jack strolled over to where his friend was rhapsodising over Tosh’s drone.

Ianto turned to Donna

“Would you like a coffee?”

“Oooh, please! I’m parched. The Doc makes a mean cuppa, but he can’t make coffee to save his life.”

“Oi, Eye Candy!” Hart yelled, holding up his mug. “Do I get a refill?”

Ianto rolled his eyes.

“What did your last slave die of?”

“Hey! Chained here!”


As Jack’s visitor droned on in the background, the redhead turned to Hart. He stared back appreciatively.

She wasn’t the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen, but she was feisty. And that red hair! She’d be a real handful.

Sauntering towards him, she stopped just out of reach, looking him up and down.

“Well you’re a bit of alright.” She offered her hand. “Donna Noble, and who might you be?”

Hart took her hand, kissing it gallantly.

“Captain John Hart, at your service. And believe me, Red, I wouldn’t say no to servicing you!”

“Cheeky! I think I like you!”
