Characters: Owen, Tosh, Ianto, mentions Jack.
Written For: Challenge 403: Fireworks at tw100
Summary: The team prepare to celebrate Independence Day.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: A couple of days late for the actual day, but it's the thought that counts.
“This is ridiculous!” Owen complained. “Jack’s not even really American, so why do we have to celebrate Independence Day?”
“He claims it’s one of the traditions that was carried out into space when humans first started colonising other planets.” Tosh shrugged. “Of course, by his time, it wasn’t about America’s independence from Britain any more, but about established colonies declaring their independence from earth.”
“That’s true enough,” Ianto agreed. “Apparently it’s quite a big deal when a colony petitions for independence, but I suspect Jack mostly just wants an excuse to set off those fireworks left over from Bonfire Night.”
