Drabble: No Hero

Title: No Hero

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Gwen, mentions Jack and Torchwood

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 332 – Gwen Cooper at tw100

Spoilers: Nothing specific.

Summary: She wanted to be a hero.

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





Working for Torchwood wasn’t what she’d expected. She’d thought she would be a hero, saving the day, protecting earth from extraterrestrial threats.



She’d been wrong.



There were days of drudgery, searching for small, seemingly insignificant objects that had fallen through the Rift. There was endless paperwork, and when an extraterrestrial threat appeared and the team went into action, there was blood and horror and fear. They saved everyone they could, but so many died.



She railed at Jack, telling him they should do more, but deep down she knew they were doing all they could, and something broke inside her.



The End
