Drabble: Stop That Castle!

Title: Stop That Castle!

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Team, larcenous aliens

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 288, Week 2 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Another bunch of aliens are up to no good in Cardiff.

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

A/N: Episode title = drabble title. It’s just easier that way.

Living on the Rift meant Torchwood were accustomed to peculiar happenings, from minor incidents all the way up to potentially world-ending scenarios, but to Jack’s knowledge, this was the first time aliens had ever tried to steal Cardiff Castle.

They needed to get it back, fast, preferably before anyone noticed it was missing. Tosh had set up a holographic projection so that from a distance it still appeared to be there, but if anyone got too close…

Four aliens, carrying the miniaturised castle, fled along the street, the Torchwood team in hot pursuit.

Stealing tourist attractions would not be tolerated.

The End


That would leave a very big hole in Cardiff. Strangely I once wrote that it was stolen by leprecauns in a story.
It would indeed - hence the need to get it put back quickly before anyone falls in!

Clearly, Cardiff Castle is a very desirable souvenir for visitors!

Thank you!
Bwahahaha! I can just see them running away with the castle.
They wanted a little souvenir of their trip to take home for the folks!

Thank you!
thief! thief! put them in the stocks, it is a castle asfter all
LOL! Great idea!

They'll have to get the castle back to full size first though!

I wonder if Cardiff Castle has dungeons...
poor Aliens, they just wanted a souvenir!
They have to learn that they can't just run off with the tourist attractions - that's what postcards and fridge magnets are for, lol!

Thank you!
No most definitely not!! can u immagine this being an actual episode, would have been realy good.
Oh how I wish.... A rash of thefts that turns out to be aliens taking souvenirs, gaping holes left in the lanscape, the Millennium Centre vanished overnight, Cardiff Castle stolen with tourists still inside....

Could have been a really fun episode!

Thank you!

Awesome and incredibly creative! The last two lines are perfection in humor!
Thank you! *blushes*

The moment I saw that episode title, I knew I was going to have aliens trying to steal the castle. It just seemed a perfect fit for Torchwood!

Brilliant! :-)
Great use of the prompt! You really are on a roll with these reverse fandom prompts :-)

Thanks for the idea you gave me for my drabble - I have one half of a double drabble written now :-)

Also, thank you. This one, the idea just popped straight into my head. Aliens were bound to try stealing the castle sooner or later...
Thank you!

The aliens haven't quite got the hang of collecting souvenirs ;)
being at a friend with wifii I can connect ... I take this opportunity
I think these are of foreign manufacturers of glass balls with snow in ...
I'm sure the castle of Cardiff found in this kind of gift for tourists ... They probably wanted to have their ...
Perhaps they are. Maybe they even meant to give it back after copying it, but Jack isn't taking any chances. He hates it when people try to steal the local landmarks!

Thank you.

Castle theft

omg...I'm choking laughing over this! I've been dealing with bad situation here and this has given me a fit of giggles and stupid smirks that are much appreciated!

This one is priceless!
