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 808: Blink – Part 1
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 360: Blink at tw100, and the first part of a three-parter.

Summary: Something’s happened to Ianto, now the team has to figure out what.

Most Rift retrievals were routine, but occasionally something went wrong. The team had split up, searching for what had come though; Ianto must have found it. The others heard a yelp through their earpieces then silence.

When they reached Ianto, he was propped against a wall, stiff as a plank of wood, unable to move anything but his eyes.

“Ianto!” Jack gasped. “Can you hear me? Blink once for yes and twice for no.”

Ianto rolled his eyes.

“What does that mean?” Jack asked, confused.

“That you’re a moron,” Owen scoffed. “Ianto, if you can hear me, blink once.”
