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 445: Like Father, Like Daughter
Author's Notes: My fourth drabble for Challenge 317 – Mammoth at tw100. Not what I was going to write next, but this idea popped into my head out of nowhere, so I wrote it.

Summary: Jack and Ianto take Meriel to the local summer fair.

Visiting the summer fair with two-year-old Meriel, Jack and Ianto decided to try their hand at some of the games.

Meriel cheered as Jack threw darts at balloons, trying to burst enough to win her a stuffed animal. Not that she needed more ‘teddies’.

Triumphantly handing his daughter a fluffy grey toy, Jack grinned.

“There you go, sweetheart, an elephant!”

Hugging the creature tightly, she shook her head.


“Are you sure?”


Jack sighed.

“Two years old and she knows the difference between an elephant and a mammoth. She gets that from you!” he accused Ianto.

Ianto smiled proudly.
