Drabble: Millennium Plus One

Title: Millennium Plus One

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, mentions Alex Hopkins

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 327 – Anniversary at tw100

Spoilers: Fragments.

Summary: New Year’s Eve 2000.

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







New Year’s Eve 2000, exactly one year since Alex murdered his team and killed himself; Jack was no closer to understanding why. After he’d taken care of the bodies, he’d looked inside the locket himself and seen… nothing. Maybe it only worked once, maybe the atrocity Alex committed had changed the future, who knew? Jack certainly didn’t.



He’d spent a year trying to come to terms with the events of that night, trying to run Torchwood alone. He’d died so many times. Now here he was, his first anniversary as director of Torchwood Three.



Maybe it was time to rebuild.



The End


Comments

An interesting anniversary for Jack and you've captured it nicely.

Has anyone ever done a drabble or story on Jack's time under Alex leading up to this event?
Thank you!

I don't know! I don'r recall reading any, but there are still hundreds of fics I haven't read yet. Try asking over at twgenrefinders maybe someone knows of some.
And he did so well. jack is both brave and strong to have overcome that.
He tried to do it all alone, but it's too much for one man.

Thank you!

Aah, very nice.
Thank you! I really had to work hard to find ways of using the prompt.
