Summary: Jack is determined to remake Torchwood into a force for good.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: Double drabble.
Torchwood Three wasn’t the same as Torchwood One, not anymore. Way back when he’d first been conscripted into the super-secret organisation, Three had followed One’s orders to the letter. It had been nothing more than a branch office, toeing the party line, its leaders doing very little thinking for themselves. Aliens were found, captured, and either killed for dissection or imprisoned, regardless of whether they were hostile or harmless.
As the decades had passed Jack had worked hard behind the scenes to change things, trying to mellow the attitude of Torchwood Three’s operatives towards aliens who weren’t a threat, but it wasn’t until Alex handed over the reins before killing himself that Jack was really able to effect changes.
Now, with Torchwood One destroyed, there was nothing to stop him; his first act was to change the Doctor’s classification from enemy to friend. He’d stood firm as Earth’s champion on so many occasions; he deserved to be respected, not criminalized.
Jack wanted to turn Torchwood into something the Doctor could be proud of. From now on it would champion the cause of peaceful aliens while protecting earth from the ones that intended harm.
There’d be more than enough senseless killing.
