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 403: Late Night Alert
Author's Notes: My eighth drabble for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100.

Prompt at the end.

Summary: Jack and Ianto have a late night Rift alert to deal with.

Just after two in the morning, the deafening sound of the Rift alarm dragged Jack and Ianto from a deep sleep.

“Bugger. That’s all we need after the day we’ve had,” Ianto muttered, dragging himself from the bed and going to check the coordinates. Jack followed with their clothes.


Three hours later, they trudged back into the Hub, covered in mud from chasing several dozen three-legged aliens around Bute Park in the pouring rain, trying to get them back into their spaceship.

“We should’ve stayed in bed,” Ianto grumbled. “I could’ve told you nothing good ever happens after 2 am.”

The End

A/N2: Title used was ‘Nothing Good Happens After 2 am’
