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 538: Seeing Is Believing
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Safe And Sound’, 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: After losing everything during TYTNW, Jack returns home needing to reassure himself that his friends are safe.

The Master took everything from Jack during The Year: his liberty, his dignity, his life over and over again. His faith in humanity was stripped away and for a while, even his belief in the Doctor wore thin.

Cardiff, his home on Earth, was destroyed while Jack was forced to watch but worse, his team, his friends, were taken from him one at a time.

Returning to a Cardiff undamaged by a year that never happened, Jack sought his team, finally able to breathe easily when he found them in peril but still safe and sound, and most importantly, alive.
