Tosh - I Rule

Drabble: Empress Of Earth - Sequel to ‘The Perils Of Boredom’

Title: Empress Of Earth - Sequel to ‘The Perils Of Boredom’

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Tosh

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Toshiko rules the earth…

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: For star54kar’s prompt ‘Toshiko gets bored and…’ There are two endings with this one, it’s up to you which one you believe!

Empress Toshiko the Bountiful, they called her, though she still preferred to be known as Tosh, especially by her many consorts.

Firm but fair, she worked hard to make the world a better place, free from hunger, hate and prejudice. The earth flourished under her reign.

It was the beginning of a new Golden Age, a time when they finally began to make official contact with alien races. Everyone agreed it was a great time to be alive!


Tosh sat up suddenly in bed.

“Good lord, what a weird dream! Maybe having sushi for supper wasn’t such a good idea!”

The End.

Alternate Ending

Tosh sat up suddenly in bed.

“What a weird dream! Never having sushi for supper again!”

A knock at the door.


The End.


Woot! Alternate ending, all the way. I'm really enjoying the idea of Tosh as Empress of the World. (Not to mention fitting two twists into 100 words is no mean feat!)
That was pretty hard and meant some drastic pruning of one sentence, but I made it fit!

Thank you, Empress Toshiko blesses you. Or something.

I've figured out I'll need to post about 5 drabbles a week to reach my target, which means I'll have to write the same number to keep ahead. I'm still accepting prompts if you have any. Some of the ones I've got haven't inspired me yet, and some will have to be written for this december because we're past Christmas (though I have a Christmassy triple drabble sequel to one I posted before Christmas which I hope to post in the next few days). I wrote 4 drabbles today and one yesterday so I'm keeping up so far.
I kneel at the feet of the Empress Toshiko.

Just how many consorts does she have, anyway? Is it a harem? I can see Tosh with a harem. *nods*

I think they all have jobs, but a sort of harem. they just don't lay around waiting to be called, they get on with work when they're not busy making the Empress happy!

How many should she have, a couple of dozen? A mix of men, women and aliens anyway, someone to suit any mood.

Thank you!
I love this!! Empress Toshiko -- is Owen one of her consorts???? I must say, I like the alternate ending better!!!

Perhaps there's a sequel to Tosh's story as Empress????
I don't know about a sequel, I've pretty much run out of ideas for this at the moment.

I'm sure Owen is one of her consorts, but he's still a doctor and has a job to do. All the consorts have jobs.

Thank you.
love when you do alternative ending and I really love the second one!
I couldn't decide if I wanted it to be real or just a dream, so I wrote both!

Thank you.
I bow to the Empress! ;)

Are Jack, Ianto, and Owen among her consorts? (I should hope they are!)
Owen is, but Jack and Ianto belong to each other. There may be the occasional threesome, but that's just fun among close friends. Ianto and Jack handfle the first contact situations for Tosh.

Thank you.
Empress |Tosh, I knew she would be a great leader. Great fic, loved both endings.
Thank you!

Yes, she's what this world needs. Someone who will make the world a better place for everyone, no discrimination of any kind allowed.
Lol! Love it!

I'm convinced the alternate ending is reality and I'd love to see more of Empress Tosh if the inspiration strikes. I would like to nominate Tommy for a position as Tosh's consort! I can just imagine Owen pouting and being grumpy when it's not his turn to make Tosh happy! :)
I don't have any inspiration for this at the moment, but you never know!

Not sure that there's a way to bring Tommy back, sadly, but you can bet Owen's nose gets a little out of joint when Tosh chooses one of the others to spend the night with her!

Thank you!
2 is so my truth.
Strange how most people tend to like that one best ;)

We all want osh to rule the world!

Thank you!

Ahahahaha - I'll take the second ending - brilliant!
It's certainly proved the most popular!

All hail Empress Toshiko!

Thank you.
Tosh would make a brilliant ruler of the universe! LOVED the second ending!!! :D
*Laughs* Almost everyone likes that one best! I guess it makes us have hope. The right person in charge really could make the world a better, fairer place.

Thank you!
What was I saying? actually, no, Jack will have to be wary of all.

at one point I thought I was in Men in Black ...
LOL! Thank you.

Jack isn't worried. The world is running much better now that it's properly organised. Ianto is helping Tosh.
Hehe :-)

Love the alternative ending :-)
Thank you, didn't know how to end it, so I wrote both endings.
Hmm, the 1st ending is more believable, but I like the second one better. All hail Empress Tosh!!
I couldn't decide which way I wanted it to go, but that's the beauty of fanfic - you can have both!

All hail Empress Toshiko!

Thank you.
