Drabble: Earning Redemption

Title: Earning Redemption

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Tosh

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 325 – Clean Slate at tw100

Spoilers: Fragments.

Summary: Tosh gets an offer she can’t refuse.

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

Tosh had sacrificed everything for her mother. Her reward had been a barren cell: no hope, no freedom, no future.

Then he’d come, all flappy coat and flashing smile.

“Give me five years, I’ll get them to wipe your record clean.”

There’d only been one answer she could give.

Now here she was, her life signed away for the next five years in exchange for a clean slate. But that was okay. Five years was nothing compared to the rest of her life. She’d work hard, earn her freedom and redemption, then leave without looking back

It would be simple.

The End


Good on Tosh. She had no idea that she was destined for a job like that and she loves every minute of it.

She does, but at the start it was a means to an end. She soon found it was her ideal job!

Thank you!

I'll get around to commenting on yours when I have time to read them, lol! I've been tied up writing my fan_flashworks piece for the challenge that ends today, another massive chapter for my current WiP. It's easily my longest fic to date, even longer than my AU I think, and that was over 20,000 words. it's a relief to ease back and write a few drabbles now I've had the time. I was too busy earlier in the week.
Sadly no it wasn't so simple, great drabble
It really wasn't. When it came right down to it, I doubt Tosh would have left at the end if her 5 years anyway.

Thank you!
Tosh will learn life is rarely so simple.
She's rediscovered hope after having none, so she's perhaps being too optimistic, though I think she'll be happier at Torchwood than she expects to be.

Thank you!

Oh dear ... simple - yes ... but not in the way she imagined.
No indeed! Poor Tosh!

(In most of my 'verses, she survives though, and stays with Torchwood anyway.)

Thank you!
It's good to feel optimistic, yet the future may change along the way... *sigh* :*)
It certainly changed a lot for Tosh!

Thank you!
Not so simple. She doesn't know what job Jack is taking her to. Doesn't know she is going to find her place in life where she belongs. She's never going to leave and not look back. She is Torchwood until she's old and grey :-)
Tosh didn't expect to find her perfect place and be happy, but she did.

Thank you!
