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 829: Unwanted
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 365: Rejected at tw100.

Spoilers: End Of Days, Doctor Who Utopia/The Sound of Drums.

Summary: Jack’s not wanted on board the TARDIS.

At the sound of the TARDIS, Jack was full of hope. After more than a century, his long wait was finally over, he could get back out among the stars with Rose and his Doctor, shake the dust of earth from his feet, be free again. No more responsibility of leadership, sending good people into danger, he’d be a follower once more, a role he felt far more suited for.

But the TARDIS tried to run from him, Rose was gone, and the Doctor, in a new and unrecognisable incarnation, rejected him for being ‘wrong’.

He no longer belonged there.
