Drabble: After The Storm

Title: After The Storm

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Team Torchwood

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: The British weather has been causing problems for Torchwood too.

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

A/N: Inspired by the weather here.

It had been a tough few days, the Rift as unsettled as the weather. Multiple Rift spikes had sent the team out into torrential rain and gale force winds countless times, retrieving everything from broken alien toasters to unstable explosive devices and an invasion attempt by lizard-like aliens which failed miserably because being cold-blooded, they hadn’t the energy to fight.

The Rift had finally settled sometime during the night while the waterlogged team were trying to get dry. Now, as dawn broke over the bay, Ianto smiled as a ray of sunlight pierced the clouds. Torchwood had weathered the storm.

The End


Lovely parallel !
Thank you! The rest of the country is suffering in this horrible weather, so I'm sure Torchwood has been battling through it too.
What a wonderful "word painting" of Torchwood and Rift environment. The weather seems to match Torchwood; things get a little rough in the corse of cases but they always come thru at the end.
It's sheer stubborn determination at times, but they get things done because they know they have to.

It would be just like the Rift to throw everything at them when the weather is at its worst

Thank you.

The whole country might sink if it keeps raining, people are losing their homes, their business, everything, it's horrible.
Lovely :-)
That first raze of sunshine after the storm - so much hope. A new beginning. So uplifting.
Thank you!

We could do with some sunshine and dry weather, maybe it would get the flood waters down a bit.
This reminded me of the 'Another Life' novel, where the weather conditions were very similar. I actually have the audiobook read by JB.

Nicely done! :)

Snap! So do I!

That's the weather we've been getting lately though, I guess life is imitating Torchwood, which is not good. There have been more flood warnings across half the country over the last few days.

Thank you.
We had some heavy rain on the US west coast over the weekend, although I'm sure it wasn't as bad as what you were getting. Hope you're staying dry. *hugs*
This morning started out with pouring rain, then turned to snow. Then the skies cleared, we had blustery winds and sunshine. Now the sun has gone down and it's pouring with rain again. I'm staying indoors. we're lucky not to live in a flood area, but a lot of people have had to be evacuated in the worst-hit places.

That's true - we could really use some sunshine here to dry things out a bit.

I love watching storms and seeing the sun come out afterwards, when everything is still wet, washed clean by the rain, but right now I don't want any more rain, we've had more than enough.

Thank you.
Lovely drabble the team has so much to deal with.
They have the Rift AS WELL as the weather, so they're doubly cursed. The weather is more than enough for most people to cope with at the moment!

Thank you.
What a good ending for a hard-working day! It's really good to enjoy small things... :) <3
We could all learn from Ianto!

Thank you.
Bravo the Team!!
They did well in difficult circumstances!

Thank you.
