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 909: Lovelorn
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 383: Unrequited at tw100.

Summary: Janet the Weevil is feeling blue.

Jack hadn’t had time to visit torchwood’s inmates for a few weeks, so what he found when he finally ventured down to the cells concerned him.

“What’s wrong with Janet?”

The Weevil in question was huddled dejectedly in the far corner of her cell, moaning piteously.

“She’s fallen in love,” Ianto replied. “Unfortunately, the object of her affections doesn’t reciprocate her feelings.”

“Ah, poor old girl. Unrequited love sucks. So who’s the cad being so mean to our poor girl?”

Jack glanced around at the Weevils housed in nearby cells.

“Not a Weevil,” Ianto smirked. “Owen.”

Jack shrugged. “Close enough.”
