Title: Letters Home
Characters: Tosh, Jack
Written For: Challenge 319 – Stationery/Stationary at tw100
Summary: Jack gives Tosh a gift beyond price.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Jack agrees to the conditions for Tosh’s release without any real intention of sticking to them; what UNIT doesn’t know won’t hurt her.
He’s instructed to allow only limited contact with her family via postcards, but the first thing he gives Tosh is an elegant and expensive set of the finest stationery. The paper is pale lilac, thick but supple, the envelopes delicate ivory. It seems almost a crime to mar them with writing.
Tosh does so anyway, writing long letters in Japanese, the kanji flowing from her brush with increasing fluidity as she practices.
She can’t thank Jack enough.
