Drabble: Worlds Apart

 

Title: Worlds Apart

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Does not compute…

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 260 – Odd Couples at tw100

Spoilers: None.

Summary: They are so different…

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

A/N: I was struck by this late last night, so I jotted it down. Typed it up just now and it’s 100 words exactly, without editing!

 

 



 

They come from different worlds, and with Torchwood that can be taken literally. She has her origins in the far future; he comes from a world that no longer exists.

 

They are so different from one another that they can’t even touch, there is no common language that unites them, yet there’s a strange sense of kinship between them. They share an understanding of the vastness of time and space that few here, in this time and place, could comprehend.

 

Mainframe watches over the hand in its jar and wonders if it feels as out of place as she does.

 

The End

Fantastic! The oddest pairing, ever!!
Thank you! I wonder about my brain sometimes, it comes up with the most peculiar ideas!
wow that was just truly fantastic!
Thank you! I don't know where it came from, it just appeared in my head so I wrote it down!
Now I never saw that pairing happening! That's great!
Thanks! It just came out of nowhere. I had been thinking about trying to write a Tosh/Mainframe friendship thing, but when I started thinking about Mainframe, I got this! It's probably the oddest thing I've ever written, lol!
This definitely wins for "oddest couple"! Well-done. :D

And how cool is that that it arrived in exactly 100 words? Clearly, it was meant to be. :)

I know! I jotted down words, crossed bits out and added others last night, I had an idea it must be close to 100, but I didn't know I'd hit it exactly until I typed it up in word!

I'd been thinking about usable characters, and maybe doing Tosh/Mainframe, but I got this instead. Unexpected but I was so pleased with the way it almost wrote itself, I didn't know how it would end until I reached the end, then it just seemed obvious!
COOL
Thank you!
Okay that was a lot weird. Good though.
Thank you! My brain scares me sometimes, I never know what it will come up with next, lol!

Lovely.
Thank you! =)
I love you for this. :)
Thank you!

It's one of my favourite drabbles - I have no idea where it came from, but I really like the way it turned out. =)
