Drabble: Precious Memories

Title: Precious Memories

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Mentions Owen, Katie, Tosh, Gwen, Rhys, Jack and Ianto.

Rating: G

Spoilers: Teeny tiny one for Owen’s part of Fragments.

Summary: Little things can mean a lot.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Treasure’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 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.

A/N2: HAPPY BIRTHDAY analineblue!

Often it’s the little, seemingly worthless things that people treasure the most.

A pressed flower Katie had worn in her hair on Owen’s first date with her.

A beer mat Owen had scrawled ‘Happy Birthday, Tosh, Love from Owen xx’ on when the team had gone out to celebrate her birthday.

The ticket stubs from the concert Gwen and Rhys had been to the night he asked her to move in with him.

A post-it note Jack had left on Ianto’s coffee machine one morning, that just said ‘You make me happy.’

Precious memories are worth far more than gold.

The End


The little things that remind us of the most cherished times of our lives are always going to be the most precious things we own.
Well said! Diamond and gold are all very well, but memories are worth more.

Thank you!
So do I! I guess that's why I'm still writing them, I can keep those good times going indefinitely in my own head and in my writing. I'm kinda OCD in a lot of things, I'm not giving up on my Torchwood!

Thank you!

Thank you! We all have our own cherished mementos!
Beautiful! memories will never grow old .....
And they'll never tarnish the way silver does!

Thank you!
Those memories and trinkets speak volumes more than anything else about a person. Lovely little drabble :D
Thank you! They show what is important to the individual person. They'd have no significance to anyone else though.
Awww, this is sweet, and it's true that treasured things may not look much to others but a lot to the keepers :)
Thank you!

I think most people have small keepsakes that mean the world to them, holding memories of special moments in their lives. They're the things that are irreplaceable.
Aww, so sweet. <3
Thank you! It's the little keepsakes that mean the most.
so true!!
Thank you!
Aww lovely :-)
But what is Jack's keepsake?
I never got around to deciding because I ran out of room, lol! Sometimes, 100 words hampers things.

Thank you!
