The Oncoming Coat

Drabble: Undimmed

Title: Undimmed

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Estelle.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 370: Old Age at tw100

Spoilers: Small for Small Worlds.

Summary: Some people age gracefully.

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

Everyone grows old; Jack had seen it happen so many times and it always saddened him, watching strong young bodies and minds wither as time took its toll.

Some people stood the test of time better than others; to Jack, Estelle was still as beautiful and vibrant as when they’d met, and her mind remained sharp as a tack.

It was so hard lying to her, telling her he was his own son when in truth, the passing years that had brought her to old age hadn’t left a single mark on him. Would she hate him if she knew?

The End


I think she knew, but allowed him to keep his secrets.
It wouldn't surprise me at all.

Thank you!

Estelle is such a great character. Wish they could have done an ep back in time when they were both young.

That would've been beautiful, she was a special lady.

Thank you!

I think she knew, she treats Jack with such gentle affection in this episode, that doesn't match with her thinking he's NOT Jack.
That's a good point. But Jack can't see it because he thinks he's keeping his secret.

Thank you!
Oh I think she knew.

Great drabble.
I kind of hope she did. She was a smart lady, not easy to fool except when it came to the Fae.

Thank you!
Estelle is as beautiful inside as outside!
Anyway she knows. Ele is very intelligent. Jack is still a bit naive, I think !!
Perhaps it's more comforting for Jack to believe he's fooling her. She's very astute though, I think she knows.

Thank you!
