Drabble: Missing Out

Title: Missing Out

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 363: Missing at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Torchwood doesn’t leave time for normality.

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







Working for Torchwood meant leaving any hope of a normal life far behind. Being permanently on call left little time for a social life, and because he couldn’t tell people what he did for a living, Ianto had drifted away from his old friends. He didn’t have much in common with them these days anyway.



The same was true for his family. Rhi would invite him for Sunday dinners, Birthdays, Christmas, but even when he said yes he often had to cancel.



Sometimes he felt he was missing out on life; even so, he couldn’t regret the choices he’d made.



The End

There's a high price working for Torchwood...
But it's a price Ianto is willing to pay.

Thank you!
The responsibility of saving the world comes with a big cost. Fortunately he is wise enough to be able to find a balance.
Ianto understands that what he does is more important than family dinners. He's keeping the city safe for everyone, including his loved ones.

Thank you!

Hopefully one day she will understand that he was only trying to protect them.

One day, when he can finally tell her the truth. It must be so hard to keep secrets from your only family.

Thank you!
Its hard jot to have a life outside of work but ianto knows how importent his job is.
True on both counts.

Thank you!
High price, but look at the reward - Jack
Yeah, that's one big perk of the job!

Thank you!
Tough life but someone has to do it, and Ianto does it pretty well ;) <3<3
Ianto is very dedicated!

Thank you!
Yep!

it is unfortunately the lot of Torchwood agents!
Fortunately, Ianto has Jack, and vice versa.
Yeah, at least they have each other. That makes everything better.

Thank you!
