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 984: A Long Wait
Author's Notes: Spoilers: Fragments.

My first drabble for Challenge 400: Milestone at tw100.

Summary: There’s a long road ahead of Jack, waiting for his answers.

New Year’s day of the year 1900 was just the first in an endless series of milestones Jack knew he must pass before finally encountering the Doctor again. The Tarot girl had told him that meeting would not come about until the century had turned twice, and the road ahead of him seemed to stretch out interminably. A hundred years is an awfully long time when you can’t just skip over the boring bits.

Nevertheless, he didn’t have a choice. If he was to get the answers he needed, he’d have to wait, crossing off the years as they passed.
