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 586: Stars
Author's Notes: For angelsphonebox’s prompt ‘Stars’

Summary: Something is puzzling Ianto…

Ianto rolled onto his back and lay staring up at the stars.

Something wasn’t quite right, but for a minute he couldn’t work out what. Then it came to him.


How the hell could there be stars when he was in bed in Jack’s bunker?

He poked Jack in the ribs.




Jack peered up, smiling sleepily.


“There shouldn’t be stars underground!”

“S’okay, they’re not real.”

Ianto frowned.

“What d’you mean?”

“That thing we found is a projector. I finally got it working, wanted to surprise you. Don’t you like it?”

Ianto thought, then smiled.
