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 414: Tailgate Musings
Author's Notes: I managed to get a couple more written for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100. Here's today's and I have one for tomorrow too.

Summary: Ianto thinks about recent events.

Sitting on the SUV’s tailgate, mind whirling and body aching, Ianto was almost glad of the pain; it reminded him he was alive. He was surprised to be glad about that.

When Lisa died, he’d believed he had nothing left to live for. Now he was starting to think he’d been wrong about that, and a lot of other things too.

Jack wasn’t a monster after all, just a man dedicated to defending his team and humanity from alien threats.

Perhaps the real monsters were humans themselves, the ones who preyed on their own kind.

It was a sobering thought.
