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 985: Another Birthday
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 400: Milestone at tw100.

Summary: Celebrating his birthday always makes Jack think about the past.

Another birthday, another milestone reached; it was bittersweet. Memories filled Jack’s mind of places he’d lived, and of people he’d known and loved over the course of his long life. The world had changed so much since he’d first arrived on earth more than four centuries earlier and he knew he’d seen more history than any human alive, but the personal cost was higher than anyone should have to pay.

“You’re brooding again,” a familiar voice commented.

Jack turned to smile at Ianto. “Not brooding; remembering old friends. It’s the only way they can be here to celebrate with us.”
