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 469: Precious Memories
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Treasure’, 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.

Summary: Little things can mean a lot.

Often it’s the little, seemingly worthless things that people treasure the most.

A pressed flower Katie had worn in her hair on Owen’s first date with her.

A beer mat Owen had scrawled ‘Happy Birthday, Tosh, Love from Owen xx’ on when the team had gone out to celebrate her birthday.

The ticket stubs from the concert Gwen and Rhys had been to the night he asked her to move in with him.

A post-it note Jack had left on Ianto’s coffee machine one morning, that just said ‘You make me happy.’

Precious memories are worth far more than gold.
