A/N: This one’s a double drabble.

On the streets of Cardiff, and in bars, clubs, and homes across the city, the New Year festivities were well underway. Many of the celebrators were already drunk, as if they were working on washing away the dregs of the old year with alcohol. It was safe to say that a large percentage of the city’s population would be starting off the New Year with one hell of a hangover.

Ianto had done the same himself when he was younger. A whole lot of New Year’s Eves had passed in an alcohol sodden haze, with memories of the night before being sketchy at best come morning. He’d grown up a lot since then, in attitude if not in years. These days heavy drinking didn’t hold the appeal it once had.

‘Well, to each their own,’ he thought as the countdown to midnight began. Everybody was entitled to celebrate however they wanted to, within reason. At least this way if any of the revellers happened to spot two men and a large, furry snake sitting on the roof of the Millennium Centre watching the fireworks, they’d be more likely to put it down to the booze. Nobody would believe them anyway.

The End



Ha! Love the surprise ending! That just cracked me up! :-D

((You've got a little typo in the 3rd line - 'it' instead of 'if'))
Thank you! My fluffy alien deserves a chance to enjoy the festivities too ;)

(Darn, I swear those pesky typos hide until after I post! Now I have to decide whether to leave it or find the entry on all five of my accounts and fix it. Mistakes gnaw at me, I edit repeatedly and still sometimes they slip through, especially with the drabbles which get posted so quickly. I extended this one from a drabble to a double drabble just before I posted it, so that's likely why. Thanks for letting me know!)
Great drabble.
Thank you!
Lovely to think of Nosy enjoying the fireworks. It'll love the colouts and sparkles
It's very excited, it's only seen fireworks on TV before now!

Ianto and Jack can watch in comfort wrapped in a Fluff ;)

Thank you!
AWWWWW lovely to see that Nosy could also enjoy the festivities with her favourite human beings!!!
And Nosy can keep its humans warm while they enjoy the view ;)

Thank you!

And assuming anyone does remember, they'll just put it down to the usual brand of wierdness Cardiff usually provides.

There are some advantages to living in Cardiff - people will accept just about anything...

Thank you!
