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 429: One Giant Leap - Sequel to ‘Defining Daisy’
Author's Notes: My 34th drabble for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100. I wanted to post this yesterday with the previous one, but I didn't have enough time. Prompt at the end.

Summary: Owen explains evolution by Rift.

Tosh looked thoughtful.

“So, there’s nothing wrong with her?”

“Not a thing. Maybe Daisy was once a regular wallaby, but we’ll never know for sure. The Rift’s alterations are retroactive. When something becomes changed, if the result is viable, those changes ripple backwards through time so that what a creature becomes is what it’s always been. As far as Daisy’s concerned, she’s never been anything else. It’s natural to her. She’s not broken, she doesn’t need fixing; she’s simply made an evolutionary leap to become a more advanced wallaby. Without such leaps, we’d still be amoebae.”

That actually made sense.

A/N2: Title used is ‘The Leap’

TBC in ‘Tidy-Minded’
