Written For: Challenge 486: Confidential at tw100.
Summary: Ianto doctored his confidential Torchwood file before taking Lisa ton Cardiff.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Everyone at Torchwood had a confidential personnel file, and only the head of Torchwood had access to all the information in them. They contained a lot more than the employee’s name, date of birth, medical history, family, and a list of previous jobs, schools attended and degrees held. They detailed any and all criminal activities: parking tickets and speeding fines, arrests, and even the crimes people never got caught for. There were the names and addresses of everyone they ever dated or slept with, every pet, every school detention, even day of playing truant… Hartman used the information she gathered to ensure loyalty and to select people for assignments
Ianto didn’t know how she’d obtained all the information she possessed, but the files were scarily thorough. He deleted them all from Torchwood’s servers, purging the system, leaving only the basic employee information behind. It wouldn’t do for another organisation, such as UNIT, to get hold of them.
Then he doctored the remaining information in his file, making himself appear ordinary, unthreatening. He couldn’t afford to give Jack Harkness any reason not to hire him, not even so much as the shoplifting charge from his teens.
Lisa’s life was at stake.
