Drabble: Father’s Day

Title: Father’s Day

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Gwen, Tosh, Owen, Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Spoilers: Mild for most of the show, including CoE (vague references to characters only).

Summary: Father’s Day means something different for each of the team.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Variations on a Theme of Father's Day’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.






Father’s Day means different things to different people.



Gwen took the day off to visit her parents. It was always a special day for her; she loved her dad and knew he adored her.



Tosh made time to phone her father, wishing him a happy day.



Owen ignored the whole thing. He’d never known his father anyway.



For Ianto, it was a day of conflicting emotions. As a small child, his dad had been his hero, but as he’d grown older, their relationship had been soured by alcohol-fuelled bitterness.



And Jack? He thought of his daughter and felt only regret.



The End


Comments

Kind of bittersweet to realize that only two of the four feel they can actually celebrate the day.
Yeah, most of the team have less than happy family lives. Gwen has it easier than the others, her parents are alive, close enough to visit, and they love her.

Thank you!
