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!

Chapter 398: The Note
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100. Prompt at the end.

Spoilers For: End Of Days/Kiss Kiss Bang Bang maybe.

Summary: At least Ianto left a note…

Jack plucked the note from his desk; it was from Ianto.


The Doctor invited me to go travelling with him.


Sitting down heavily, Jack felt lost. Ianto had left? Well, why wouldn’t he? Hadn’t Jack done the same not long ago? At least Ianto left a note. Jack’s heart plummeted; would he ever return?

He was still sitting there staring at nothing when a mug of coffee appeared in front of him. There stood Ianto, looking exactly the same.

“Ianto! You’re back!”

“I never left.”

“But the note…”

“He asked. I refused. Now you know how I felt.”

The End
