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 836: Things That Matter
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 368: Episode Tag at tw100.

Summary: Ianto takes care of something that matters to Jack.

Everyone has gone home, even Gwen; Jack’s finally managed to persuade her to leave. He was under the impression that Ianto had left too, but apparently he was wrong about that.

“What are you still doing here? Don’t you have somewhere else to be?”

Ianto shrugs. “I thought someone should fix this for you.” He indicates the hand, now in a new containment jar, the fluid bubbling merrily.


“Because it’s obviously important to you. Things that matter to people need to be cared for.” Ianto smiles faintly; Jack has his hand, Ianto has Lisa. Maybe they’re not so different.
