Title: Quelled or Quenched
Warnings: Violence, language
Cast: Team, all canon parings, Ianto/OC, Torchwood One (some made up names), Rhiannon & Co.
A/N: The title comes from the poem “Binsey Poplars” by Gerard Manley Hopkins. This is AU.
Summary: Torchwood One’s mantra of “if it’s alien, it’s ours” may suit the dreams of rebuilding an empire, but does little for ethical concerns. In 1998, Captain Jack Harkness becomes aware of the imprisonment and experimentation on the Ambassador of the Forest of Cheem.
