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 402: Illuminated
Author's Notes: My seventh drabble for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100.

Spoilers For: A Day In The Death.

Summary: Owen and Maggie watch the lightshow created by the Pulse.

They’re a strange pair, a living dead man who’d lost hope and a woman who’d lost her reason to live. Yet here they stand, on a rooftop at night, thinking maybe they can go on after all.

Life’s not all darkness and despair; hope can be found in the unlikeliest of places. The future’s looking brighter for both of them, all because of a mysterious alien device; a message they can neither decipher nor comprehend.

It sings to them, a symphony comprised of ribbons of light, more beautiful than anything they’ve ever experienced, and it fills their hearts with wonder.
