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 823: Missing Out
Author's Notes: One last drabble for Challenge 363: Missing at tw100.

Summary: Torchwood doesn’t leave time for normality.

Working for Torchwood meant leaving any hope of a normal life far behind. Being permanently on call left little time for a social life, and because he couldn’t tell people what he did for a living, Ianto had drifted away from his old friends. He didn’t have much in common with them these days anyway.

The same was true for his family. Rhi would invite him for Sunday dinners, Birthdays, Christmas, but even when he said yes he often had to cancel.

Sometimes he felt he was missing out on life; even so, he couldn’t regret the choices he’d made.
