Drabble: Night Frost

Title: Night Frost

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Torchwood Team.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 401: Cold at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Cold weather can bring unexpected beauty.

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







The night was bitterly cold, the full moon hanging in the cloudless sky almost bright enough to drown out the stars. Sensible people were tucked up warm in their beds, but Torchwood didn’t always have that luxury. Some nights their job required them to protect the city while its citizens slept on, oblivious.



Tonight they’d been dragged from their dreams to deal with a Hoix, but as they bundled their captive into the SUV, they looked around at the frost coating every bush, tree, and blade of grass, turning them silver, and almost pitied those who’d never witness such beauty.



The End

Some things you only ever get a chance to see in the dead of night. At least it makes their nightly outings just that little but less unpleasant.

It's a reward for being up in the middle of the night =

Thank you!
Frost is really beautiful.

great drabble.
It can be, but it makes everywhere so cold! *shivers*

Thank you!
That does sound beautiful :)
And very cold! *shivers*

Thank you!

I had the chance to contemplate this kind of show, many times at different times of day and in different places (my garden and its surroundings, in the Fagnes Belgium, sort of covered moorland stream, tall grass and small trees, whose magnificent old oaks and winding).
it is still as magical and enchanting !! and fragile and limited in time.

thank you for the memories of reminders!
You're welcome, it sounds really beautiful!

Thank you!
