Characters: Ianto, Janet, other aliens.
Written For: Challenge 470: Prison at tw100.
Summary: Ianto cares for Torchwood’s inmates, but sometimes he wonders…
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Ianto moved among the cells, feeding the inmates; Janet and Brad the Weevils, Cyril the Hoix, and Yuk, the weird rubbery thing that sat in a corner wobbling like a jelly.
‘Do they know they’re in prison?’ he wondered. Cyril was there because Hoix ate anything, including people, so he couldn’t be allowed to wander the streets. Janet was there for study and Brad because he’d turned rogue, becoming dangerous after losing a hand in a fight with another Weevil.
As for Yuk, it was there because nobody knew what else to do with it.
All were prisoners of circumstance.
