Drabble: Get Out Of That, Then

Title: Get Out Of That, Then

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 288, Week 4 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Aliens invade and capture Torchwood.

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

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







They’d been captured by invading aliens. Again. Funny how that kept happening, Ianto mused.



Bound and gagged, they were locked up. In a tool shed.



Incompetent aliens then. Hadn’t even taken their weapons. Ianto would have rolled his eyes, but it wasn’t worth the effort.



It was the work of moments to find suitable tools, cut themselves free, then take the door off its hinges and escape. Jack was impressed with his ingenuity and promised suitable rewards. Later. They had an invasion to prevent first.



Which proved woefully easy.



The aliens, shocked that they’d escaped, promptly surrendered.



Another crisis averted.



The End

Ha. Stupid aliens indeed.
Well, I figured they can't all be that smart or earth would have been successfully invaded long ago!

Thank you!
ROFL! Locked up with tools! That's pretty incompetent, alright.

We always assume if an aliens have the technology to get here, they'll be highly intelligent, but why would that necessarily be the case? Human beings can get to the moon, but as reality TV proves every day, there are a lot of dim bulbs around.

Great job!
Thank you, that's what I thought. The aliens are so advanced they think we'll be a pushover so they disregard any technology that isn't as advanced as their own, lol!

Incompetent aliens! they did not count on Ianto's knows all!!!

tools .... I can see Jack making some sexy remarks about them!
Jack makes sexy remarks about everything, lol!

Aliens just keep underestimating the people of earth. Our tech may not be as advanced as theirs, but we know how to use what we've got and Ianto is very ingenius!

Thank you!
Great drabble
Thank you!
Dont think much of these aliens then LOL.

Great drabble.
I think Jack and Ianto sort of liked them - they were easy to deal with!

Thank you.
Hehe, incompetent aliens are funny :-)
They're the kind Torchwood prefers, they're so much easier to deal with!

Thank you.
Haha! I love that - beautifully stupid aliens win! ^.^
Incompetent aliens are the best sort, makes for an easy life for the Torchwood team. If only all alien invaders would give up so easily...

Thank you.
