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 473: Act Of Mercy
Author's Notes: My fourth drabble for Challenge 318 – Long Overdue at tw100.

Spoilers: For Cyberwoman.

Summary: Lisa’s final end was long overdue.

Lisa was gone.

If he was brutally honest with himself, Ianto had suspected she was gone long before the team had killed her. From the moment the conversion had started, the cyber implants had been chipping away at her mind, her personality, everything that made her human. They’d gradually consumed Lisa, leaving behind only a shell inhabited by a soulless, emotionless mockery of the warm and wonderful woman he’d loved.

But he couldn’t let her go.

Instead of hating his colleagues, he should be thanking them for doing what he should have done months ago; they’d finally ended her suffering.

The End
