Drabble: Faded

Title: Faded
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, mentions Tosh.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 468: Faint / Feint at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Some of the files in Torchwood Three’s archives are very old indeed.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.





Ianto pulled on a pair of gloves before opening the filing cabinet. It was the oldest one in the archives, it’s contents made fragile by age, so the reports it contained needed extremely careful handling.


Selecting a file, he photocopied one sheet at a time while scanning them into the computer. The ink was badly faded, leaving the writing so faint it was difficult to read, but Tosh’s computer programme restored clarity so every letter and smudge was rendered crystal clear. It didn’t help decipher the appalling handwriting of some former agents though. That was a job for human eyes.



The End

Great drabble
Thank you!
Sympathies Ianto. I remember trying to decipher the old acccessions ledgers of the Mitchell Library
I had enough trouble deciphering the scrawl of the librarians I worked with =/

Thank you!

Well I'm glad Tosh at least helped to fix part of the problem! You can't ever fix the "human" factor, though....

Tosh is a genius. She saw the problem in your drabble and worked on finding a solution ;)

Ianto can do the deciphering of handwriting. He's had plenty of practice with Owen's.

Thank you!
