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 810: Blink – Part 3
Author's Notes: My fourth drabble for Challenge 360: Blink at tw100, and the last part of the Blink trilogy.

Woohoo! Another one that came out at exactly 100 words, no editing required! Someday maybe I’ll work out how many of those I’ve written.

Summary: They caught the alien, but how do they fix Ianto?

“I didn’t hurt him!” the alien whined. “I was just defending myself!”

“Didn’t hurt him?” Jack sounded incredulous. “Look at him, he’s all stiff! And not in the good way.”

Ianto rolled his eyes at that.

“How do we fix him?” Owen wanted to know.

“You don’t. You can’t. The effects should wear off soon.”

Ianto looked beseechingly at Jack, who seemed to understand, lifting his stiff boyfriend and laying him on the sofa.

“That better?”

“You’re welcome.”

An hour later, Ianto unstiffened.

“Oh thank God. I have a whole new respect for store mannequins,” he groaned.
