Double Drabble: Way Out

Title: Way Out
Characters: Tosh, Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 645: Free at tw100.
Spoilers: Fragments.
Summary: Tosh thought she’d be a prisoner forever, but now she’s being offered a way out.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: Double drabble.

After several months alone in her small, bare cell, Tosh had resigned herself to spending the rest of her life locked away from the world. Maybe it was no more than she deserved for committing treason by building that horrible sonic modulator. She’d known it was wrong at the time, but what else could she have done? Her mother’s life had been at stake; wouldn’t anyone else have done the same to save someone they loved?

Perhaps if she’d told someone about her mother’s abduction and the threats the kidnappers had made, but if she’d done that her mother would most likely have been killed. Complying with their demands had seemed the only way of freeing her. She’d traded her mother’s freedom for her own.

But now she’d been given another option; five years of servitude in return for her freedom, and what was five years when measured against the rest of her life? Surely it had to be better than enduring decades as a prisoner with no rights and no hope of release.

She barely needed to think about it; one simple word would set her free, give her a chance to do something good with her life.


The End


Where it all began. I wish there had been more.
Yes, Tosh never got as much screen time as she deserved.

Thank you!

The injustice of it all. I would have watched a spinoff of her, had she not been killed off.

You're welcome.
Yes, me too. She would have made a great Doctor Who companion.

Yes! She would have kept up with the Doctor on gadgets and the like.
The Doctor would have loved talking with her!

Yeah. Why couldn't the Doctor have had a companion like her?*sighs*
I don't know. Maybe they think the Doctor has to be so much smarter than his companions.

Shame, considering that is one of the things the Doctor values in a person. Although its not a bad thing to just have the potential. I'd like to identify with the companion as well. In some ways, I did with Tosh and I'm not a computer expert.*shrugs*
I identified a lot with Tosh even though I'm a computer dunce, simply because she's quiet, and keeps to herself a lot. She reminded me of myself when I was younger.

Me too.:)
