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 629: Reliving The Present
Author's Notes: My tenth drabble for Challenge 326 – Doctor’s Visit at tw100, and the second of three today.

Spoilers: Doctor Who, Boom Town.

Summary: Jack watches the events of Boom Town on CCTV.

This day had been marked in red on Jack’s mental calendar for years, now he sat in his office listening to the sound that haunted his dreams.

He’d sent his team off a few hours ago on a wild goose chase up in the Beacons, investigating UFO sightings. Well, more like he’d let them go after ‘trying to dissuade them’. The more he’d said it was nothing, the harder they’d insisted on checking it out.

So, they were far away where they couldn’t interfere while the Doctor, Rose and his still-mortal self visited Cardiff.

He wished he’d gone with them.
