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 842: Optimism
Author's Notes: Written For: Challenge 369: Awkward at tw100.

Summary: Sometimes, capturing the alien doesn’t go to plan.

Really, Ianto thought, they should all be used to this kind of thing. They’d been in this job long enough to be well aware that Torchwood and dignity didn’t mix. Nevertheless, somehow they were never really prepared, they still had this kind of blind optimism where they thought that this time, everything would work out just fine.

It almost never did.

Which was why they were now in this awkward position, covered in goo and hanging upside down from a signpost in the middle of Cardiff.

Some aliens should not be made angry.

“We’ll get it next time!” Jack promised.

The End
