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 530: Holding On To Hope
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Cups (Pitch Perfect's When I'm Gone)’, 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: Jack’s gone, but Ianto is holding on to hope.

Jack was gone, vanished without trace. Was he taken or did he just leave? It was a shock, but Ianto had to admit he wasn’t really surprised. He thought he knew who Jack had left with; what hurt was that he hadn’t cared enough about them to say goodbye.

He looked at the extra cup of coffee he’d fetched. What a waste.

Still, all the time Jack was gone, Ianto found himself reaching for Jack’s mug whenever he made coffee. At the back of his mind, a little voice kept telling him ‘Don’t give up hope; Jack will come home.’
