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 871: Rubbish!
Author's Notes: A fifth drabble for Challenge 376: Rubbish at tw100.

Wow! Another one to come out at 100 words first try! That’s three in just over a week!

Summary: Sometimes the Rift brings Torchwood wonderful things, and sometimes… it doesn’t.

Jack and Ianto trailed back into the Hub looking grubby and dishevelled after going out to investigate a Rift alert. Tosh, always eager to investigate the gifts the Rift bestowed on them, smiled in anticipation.

“What did we get this time?”

“A load of rubbish,” Jack grumbled, heading up to his office.

“I know a lot of what comes through is broken or damaged, but that doesn’t mean it’s not interesting,” Tosh objected.

“It was a literal load of rubbish, Tosh,” Ianto explained. “Complete with rubbish bin. Jack’s just a bit cranky because it dropped on his head.”

Tosh giggled.
