Drabble: Victorious

Title: Victorious

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Team

Rating: PG

Spoilers: Nada

Summary: Torchwood have survived another battle.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Sunrise’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 316 earlier this 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.

It had been a long, difficult battle. The band of Krillian mercenaries who’d fallen through the Rift had been heavily armed and out for blood; whose blood hadn’t seemed to matter.

Battered, bloody and weary to the bone, the Torchwood team slowly limped their way back to the SUV just as dawn was breaking.

Ianto, who was leading the way, stopped suddenly, pointing as the sun rose above the horizon.

“Sun’s coming up, and we’re all still alive,” he said cheerfully. “It’s going to be a beautiful day.”

They smiled at each other, weariness forgotten. They’d saved the world again.

The End


Any day with Torchwood is a good day when you can see the sunrise. I just love Ianto's outlook, really.
The others are all "I'm tired, my arms hurt, moan moan." Ianto is happy to be alive as the sun comes up. He, perhaps more than any of them, knows how quickly it can all end for a Torchwood agent. I'm thinking this is probably while Jack is away with the Doctor and the team are dealing with everything without their leader.

Thank you!
Who else than Ianto seeing the glass half full!!!?
Ianto's sees that they were lucky and should appreciate that they survived instead of complaining that they're tired.

Thank you!
Great drabble, sums up Torchwood perfectly.
Thank you!

They work hard, but every day they all survive is a good day.
as the lone cowboy going into the sunset after completing work are.
except that they are a team, and it's morning.
great day to continue.
Yes, they're striding into the dawn of a new day!

Thank you!
Thank you! Sometimes they all need reminding that being alive is a good thing.
A battle hard-won and a reward well-deserved. A beautiful day, indeed. :)
Sometimes Ianto has top remind the team that winning is good!

Thank you!
