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


I am wibbling for Jack right now.

This was great, such a difference in how the team view Father's Day. Just loved it. :)
Thank you! I intended to post this on Father's Day, but I think it fell either during the bingo madness, or in the middle of a drabble challenge that proved too inspiring, lol!

It's always interesting to look at the different life experiences of the various Torcwood team members; most of them have had more than their fair share of bad times.
