Drabble: Seeing Is Believing

Title: Seeing Is Believing

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, mentions Team Torchwood, the Doctor and The Master

Rating: G

Spoilers: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Doctor Who, Last of the Time Lords

Summary: After losing everything during TYTNW, Jack returns home needing to reassure himself that his friends are safe.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Safe And Sound’, 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.

The Master took everything from Jack during The Year: his liberty, his dignity, his life over and over again. His faith in humanity was stripped away and for a while, even his belief in the Doctor wore thin.

Cardiff, his home on Earth, was destroyed while Jack was forced to watch but worse, his team, his friends, were taken from him one at a time.

Returning to a Cardiff undamaged by a year that never happened, Jack sought his team, finally able to breathe easily when he found them in peril but still safe and sound, and most importantly, alive.

The End


What a relief for Jack! What he went through was unimaginable. He was probably sure he'd never see his team, much less the Earth, again.

Huzzah for second chances!
Let's hope he makes the most of his second chance.

Because he was on the Valiant, he remembers what happened. think it must be hard to adjust to the fact that what you KNOW happened, suddenly didn't happen at all. The only way to get it to sink in a bit would be to see for yourself. Until Jack caught up with his team, he must have been wondering if he would find them at all.

Thank you!
It must have been his greatest victory seeing them alive!
And the proof he needed that everything really D gone back to how it was before, with them still alive and safe.

Thank you.
I would think he probably did, as well as having nightmares. And then when Gray and John Hart bombed Cardiff, all of the represses feelings would come back to the surface.

Has it really been 9 years? It doesn't seem than long ago, seems more like two or three.

Thank you.
I can even begin to imagine how Jack must have felt seeing his friends alive after everything.

great drabble.
Neither can I, but the relief must have been tremendous.

Thank you!
Back to 'normal' peril, then *awww* *hugs Jack* :)
Yeah, he gets them back only to have to keep putting them back in danger. That's got to mess with his head after everything he's been through.

Thank you!
I cant even begin to imagine what Jack must have gone through or how it would have felt to be back.

Good drabble
Neither can I. After everything he went through, finally seeing that his team are safe must have been an overwhelming relief.

hank you!
