Owen

Double Drabble: Overconfidence

Title: Overconfidence
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Owen, Jack, Team.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 483: Hard at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Owen’s not as clever as he thinks he is.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble.





Owen wanted a coffee, but Ianto was in London at some meeting or other, and wouldn’t be back until late evening. He could nip across the Plas to one of Cardiff’s better coffee shops, but it was pissing down rain outside and he’d be soaked to the skin before he got halfway. Not even the thought of hot coffee was enough of an incentive to endure that.


The rest of the team were off somewhere, dealing with a Weevil sighting, but Owen had stayed behind, saying he had to finish the autopsy of the dead alien from three days ago. He’d actually finished it the day before, but they weren’t to know since he hadn’t handed in his report on it yet. Any excuse to avoid having to get wet.


Pushing back his seat, Owen wandered into the small kitchenette and stared at the coffee machine. He’d seen Teaboy work it dozens of times; how hard could it be? He’d surprise the others by having coffee waiting for them when they got back.


He surprised them, alright!


“Owen! What have you done?” Jack yelled.


Standing there splattered with a thick, lukewarm, brown tarry substance, Owen groaned. “I wish I knew!”



The End

Owen, don't bother having a shower, you are going to be dead when Ianto gets back later.
Ianto will not be pleased, but as long as the coffee machine is unhurt I think he'll feel Owen got what he deserved. He'll still put Owen on decaf for the foreseeable future, but I bet he'll enjoy the CCTV footage of Owen's coffee-making attempt later ;)

Thank you!

What exactly did Owen do? I bet he was just winging it.

He's not as smart as he thinks he is - no one but Ianto can get the coffee machine to produce good coffee.

Thank you!
Haha poor Owen :D Hope Ianto makes him clean the kitchen!
Oh, I think Jack will see that Owen cleans up before Ianto gets home. He doesn't want to find himself in trouble!

Thank you!
HAHA oh poor Owen!!

great drabble.
He shouldn't have messed with Ianto's machine!

Thank you!

Uh oh. Ianto is not going to be happy when he gets back tonight if Owen has broken his coffee machine!

I'm sure the coffee machine is fine, it just didn't want to cooperate ;)

Thank you!
