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 463: Just Us
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘We Were Us’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use. I wrote this one backwards. I knew the ending I wanted, so I started there.

Summary: Jack enjoys a day of freedom from Torchwood, with Ianto by his side.

Hand in hand with Ianto, strolling along the beach, barefoot and enjoying the sunshine, I felt at peace. These were the days I lived for.

Tomorrow, we’d be back at work, protecting Cardiff from the flotsam and jetsam of the universe with no idea what we’d be facing next. It could be anything from a full-scale invasion by hostile aliens to an assortment of odd socks; the Rift was unpredictable enough that anything was possible.

But for now, we weren’t Captain Jack Harkness and Torchwood’s general support officer; we were just us, Jack and Ianto, enjoying a rare day off.

The End
