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!

Chapter 617: A Chance To Fight Back
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 325 – Clean Slate at tw100

As with yesterday, this is the first of three drabbles for this challenge. The new prompt will be up tomorrow so I have to get these posted today or they won’t count. I was tied up with other writing earlier in the week because the deadline for that challenge was the 10th, so I only got back to the drabbles yesterday. Cue the mad dash, lol! So much for making things easier on myself this year

Spoilers: Fragments.

Summary: Owen’s not making a new start, just trying to put the pieces back together.

Losing Katie broke something deep inside Owen; he knew he’d never be the same. She’d been his life, his future, his whole reason for living and now she’d been ripped away from him by something he couldn’t understand.

An alien incubating in her brain? It made no sense; none of it did.

He railed at the man in the coat, kicking and punching until he exhausted himself, then let Harkness take him to Cardiff. At least there maybe he could fight back against monsters he’d never known existed.

It wasn’t exactly starting with a clean slate, but it would do.

The End
