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 650: Frippery
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 329 – Chiffon at tw100.

Summary: Tosh longs for a beautiful dress.

It was foolish frippery, the kind of dress Tosh would likely never have occasion to wear, yet she couldn’t take her eyes off it. Floating layers of chiffon in several shades of purple flowed from a simple bodice to sweep the floor. It was made for dancing. Sighing, she turned away, putting it out of her mind, until Jack told her they’d been invited to UNIT’s New Year party.

Stepping into the ballroom, skirts drifting weightlessly around her legs, she felt like a princess.

Frippery it might be, but it was worth everything to see the look on Owen’s face!
