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 963: Mother’s Day Plans
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 395: Mother at tw100.

Spoilers: Nothing too specific.

Summary: Gwen wants to know what the team are doing for Mother’s Day

“What’s everyone doing for Mother’s day?” Gwen asked. “I’m taking my mum flowers and a card.” She looked questioningly at her teammates.

“I’ve sent my mother Carnations,” Tosh smiled. “Red ones. I won’t get to see her this year.”

“That’s a shame. What about the rest of you?”

“I don’t do Mother’s Day,” said Owen. “Mum kicked me out when I was sixteen.”

“Oh. Ianto?”

“I’ll take flowers to the cemetery.”

“My mother won’t be born for three thousand years,” Jack put in.

Gwen went quiet. Until now, she’d never realised how lucky she was to have a loving mum.
