Characters: Ianto, mentions Tosh.
Written For: Challenge 468: Faint / Feint at tw100.
Summary: Some of the files in Torchwood Three’s archives are very old indeed.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Ianto pulled on a pair of gloves before opening the filing cabinet. It was the oldest one in the archives, it’s contents made fragile by age, so the reports it contained needed extremely careful handling.
Selecting a file, he photocopied one sheet at a time while scanning them into the computer. The ink was badly faded, leaving the writing so faint it was difficult to read, but Tosh’s computer programme restored clarity so every letter and smudge was rendered crystal clear. It didn’t help decipher the appalling handwriting of some former agents though. That was a job for human eyes.
