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 954: Gwen’s Question
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 393: Uniform at tw100.

Posting early today because I'll be at the hospital for tests at the time I usually post and I don't know when I'll be able to get back online.

Summary: Newbie Gwen has a question.

“My clothes are completely ruined,” Gwen sighs one day, shortly after she joins the team. A field trip down into the sewers has left them all grubby and stinking. “How come Torchwood doesn’t have a uniform? You know, like the police.”

Owen stares at her and snorts in disgust. “Defeats the object of bein’ a secret organisation, doesn’t it? Every Tom, Dick, and Harry would know who we are.”

“But it says Torchwood on the car.”

“Only because official vehicles get fewer parking tickets,” Tosh explained.

“Well, that’s Jack’s excuse anyway,” Ianto smirked. “Really, he just thinks it looks cool.”
