Drabble: Ordinary Copper

Title: Ordinary Copper

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: PC Andy, Jack.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 408: Copper at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: PC Andy gets a very unexpected offer.

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

PC Andy Davidson wasn’t under any illusions; he knew he was just an ordinary copper, one of many patrolling the streets of Cardiff. There was absolutely nothing that made him more important or more special than any of his fellow constables, which was why he was confused.

“Say that again?”

“Torchwood’s recruiting; are you interested? It’s a simple question, PC Davidson; all you have to do is answer yes or no.” Harkness stared him down.

“Are you kidding? Why would anyone say no? Of course I’m bloody interested.”

“I was hoping you’d say that. Welcome aboard; you’ll fit right in.”

The End


I'm assuming he'll fit right in because Gwen is no longer there (for whatever happy reason)?

Because if Gwen is still there she will not be happy sharing the shiny with someone she thinks is beneath her (but who is actually smarter, more mature, and more adaptable than she is) ...

Now I want to know where Gwen went to ...
I was kind of seeing this as in the Nosy-Verse, where Gwen is indeed still on the team (but wasn't too happy about Andy being recruited, she had to get over that). BUT, I wrote a drabble not long ago where Gwen disappeared after foolishly picking up an unidentified piece of alien tech. She was never found, so maybe that's why Jack recruited Andy!

Thank you!

Ah yes, I remember that drabble with fondness :)
I'm rather fond of that one myself ;)

How soon do you think your new drabble comm will be up and running?
I'm hoping by the end of the month. I think I'll be posting new prompts on Saturdays, which is a day I have more available time and it'll also mean I'm not clashing with other challenges. I'm just fine-tuning the rules at the moment, trying to make sure I haven't forgotten anything important.

I've never set up a community on my own before, so that will be an interesting experience. I just hope I don't make a mess of it!
Yep no one would ever say no to that offer.

great drabble.
They might regret saying yes later, but they wouldn't say no ;)

Thank you!

Why did this not happen?!.:)
Because of RTD, I guess. It would have been so much better though, Any would have fitted in well with the team.

Thank you.

I should have made it a rhetorical question.:)

Anyway. At least I would have preferred his sense of humor or sarcasm over you know who.
Me too, Andy was a great and sadly under-used character, he would have been so much fun, we could have had three-way snark from Ianto, Andy, and Owen! Plus, maybe Andy would have been interested in Tosh and either made her happy himself or got Owen so Jealous that he asked Tosh out.

That sounds like a cool idea!. Tosh could handle all the testosterone. Now I feel cheated that this never happen. There is always fanfic I guess.
Indeed. Thank heavens for fanfic, where all the things that should have happened get to be explored!

Tosh would flourish, surrounded by testosterone and with no competition from other females =)
I am sure he will be a very good TW employee!
Andy is just what Torchwood needs - someone else to join Ianto and gang up on Owen ;)

Thank you!
