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 468: The Loser
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘When I Was Your Man’, 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.

Spoilers: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Exit Wounds compliant.

Summary: John wanted to win Jack back, but he just drove his former lover further away. He only has himself to blame.

John kept hidden, watching the ragged remains of Jack’s team lay their friends to rest.

He was mostly to blame for their losses. He’d let himself get conned, all because he’d wanted to return Jack’s lost brother to him; maybe win Jack back in the process. By the time he’d realised he was being played, he was trapped, a bomb bonded to his arm, compelled to help Gray carry out his insane vendetta.

Once upon a time, Jack would’ve turned to John for comfort; now Eye Candy had taken his place.

There was nothing left for him here.

He’d lost.

The End
