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 408: Coming Back
Author's Notes: I give up - here's another one for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100.

Title is the prompt.

Summary: Jack thinks about the pain of resurrection and the one thing that can make it less of an ordeal.

Coming back was as painful as getting killed in the first place; Jack always likened it to being dragged across broken glass, but that didn’t do the searing agony justice. It never got any easier.

He’d grown accustomed to enduring the pain, to making wisecracks that concealed how much he suffered each time. He’d had to, there were too many occasions when he’d resurrected only to confront whoever had killed him. Showing weakness was never a good idea.

But he’d finally found the one thing that made coming back better: waking up in the arms of the man he loved.

The End
