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 546: Something In The Dark
Author's Notes: For 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. Prompt at the end.

Spoilers: Tiny for They Keep Killing Suzie, Reset.

Summary: Something’s moving in the dark

No matter how Jack dies, he always goes to the same place, a black limbo where he waits to be dragged back into life. The emptiness is profound, yet he always senses he’s not alone.

Sometimes he hears faint whispering, and it’s a terrible feeling to know something’s nearby and to wish with every fibre of his being that he’ll be gone before it can find him.

He doesn’t know what it is, doesn’t really want to know, but he’s certain of one thing; whatever haunts the dark on the other side, it’s not something he ever wants to meet.

The End

A/N2: Title used is ‘The Other Side’
