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 813: For Love Of…
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 362: Love at tw100.

Summary: Love makes people do crazy things.

Love; it can make people do crazy things. It was love that had made Ianto hide the metal monster Lisa had become in the mistaken belief that he could still save her. He’d risked the world and everyone in it because he couldn’t accept that she was already gone.

Equally, it was love that had kept him believing Jack would return after he’d left with the Doctor, despite all evidence to the contrary.

And it was love that kept him here now, painstakingly repairing the coat because Jack would be lost without it.

No coat had ever been loved more.
