A/N: For the prompt ‘Sweet Annie’, 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.

She was a lovely girl, bubbly, outgoing, friendly and funny. She’d always pause to chat when she delivered Pizza to the Tourist Office, telling Ianto he worked too hard and should remember to have fun occasionally, that he was too young to be so serious all the time.

He knew she lived with her parents, had two married older brothers, two little nieces and a cat called Moe. She was studying to be a teacher and she wanted to travel the world.

And now she was dead, and it was his fault.

Sweet Annie didn’t deserve to die like that.

The End


Sweet and poignant; I don't think I've ever seen anyone give attention to Annie...
She was an innocent victim, a person with her own life. I wanted to show that, and that she had people who were going to miss her. Ianto is just feeling so guilty, I think that's where his stomach rats came from - guilt over the death of an innocent. I'm not counting Tanizaki, I don't think he was innocent at all.

Thank you!
No, the doctor wasn't. This is so lovely though; much appreciated for Annie, too.

Thank you. She deserved to be seen as a person rather than a plot point.
Great drabble. very poingnient.
Thank you! I really piled the guilt on poor Ianto!
Annie's death would haunt Ianto as she was innocent in the wrong place.
I agree. He'd be devastated that his desire to save Lisa cost an innocent young woman her life.

Thank you.
Thank you!
