Drabble: How Many More?

Title: How Many More?

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 393: Uniform at tw100

Spoilers: Fragments.

Summary: Jack faces the new millennium alone.

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







The new millennium hadn’t got off to the start Jack had been hoping for. A few hours earlier he’d been looking toward the future with anticipation, even excitement; the century had turned twice, so his Doctor could show up any time now. The long years of waiting were finally drawing to an end.



Then he’d been faced with clearing up after Alex massacred the entire team.



Standing in the morgue, Jack gazed sightlessly at the uniform rows of drawers, the final resting places of the people he’d called his friends. How many more would join them before the Doctor came?



The End

Cheerful

Yeah, sorry about that, luck of the draw. Today's will be happier, I promise!

Thank you!

Well, if I wasn't sad before, I am now :)
Sorry about that, but it was your prompt ;)

It was a start of a new stage of Jack's life. It was hard but it brought him a lot of good things along with the bad.

Thank you.
It must have been one of his most difficult moments!
I think so. He had to decide whether to take up the reins of Torchwood or not.

Thank you.
that must have been the hardest thing Jack has ever had to do.
The hardest thing up to that point, yes, but things got a whole lot harder for him after that, making life or death decisions...

Thank you.
Oh nice
Thank you!

Jack's whole life changed when he had to take over Torchwood Three. It was a defining moment for his character.
A great look at Jack during what had to be one of the hardest times in his life. As old as he was, it feels like this is the point at which he really grew up and accepted painful responsibility. Too bad that even worse losses were in store. (As much as I love Torchwood, the more I reflect on it, the darker it gets.) Now I need to go re-watch "Something Borrowed."
Well, Torchwood was meant to be quite dark.

I agree, up to that point Jack was just an employee. When Alex killed the others, Jack had to decide what he would do. He could have left, but instead he decided to take charge and run Torchwood Three himself, and change it into something better.

Thank you!
