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 478: Historic Moment
Author's Notes: My ninth drabble for Challenge 318 – Long Overdue at tw100.

I’m not too sure if this one really works, but I did the best I could with the idea I had.

Summary: It’s a day that will go down in history.

Jack and Ianto sprawled on their sofa, eating dinner while watching the evening news, something they seldom got to do; it made a pleasant change. Not that the news was universally good or anything, but still…

“This is an historic day,” Jack told Ianto. “Someday we’ll tell our grandkids exactly where we were when we first heard the news.”

“What are you talking about?”

Jack gestured at the TV as the newscaster announced the vote had been passed to allow same sex couples to marry.

“Finally! This is the day that marks humanity’s first step towards long overdue full equality.”

The End
