Drabble: Unexpected News

Title: Unexpected News

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen, Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 289 – Baby Names at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Owen discovers one of the Hub’s residents is expecting.

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






“Jack, one of the new Weevils is pregnant,” Owen announced, relishing being the bearer of less than joyful news.



Jack looked more than a little surprised.



“Are you sure? I thought you told me you didn’t know how Weevils reproduced.”



“Well, yeah, I said that, but only because I’d never seen a pregnant Weevil. None of the Weevils I’d studied had any reproductive organs, but this one does.”



“Which one is it?”



“The one you named Brad.”



“Ah. Guess I’d better rename her.”



“What would you call a baby Weevil?” mused Ianto. “A Weevlet? Weevling?”



“I’m thinking Fred,” said Jack.



The End

ROFL! This was lovely and very funny. Loved it!
Thank you!

Ianto is busy rolling his eyes at Jack.
Thanks for putting a big smile on my fce before my blood tests!!!
Fred is a nice name, Jack!!!!
Thank you. I like the name Fred too - I had a guinea pig called Fred!

*hugs* Good luck for your blood tests, be brave!
I think Brenda would be more appropriate for the mama and I wouldn't name the baba untill you are sure what sex it is Jack LOL.

great drabble.
Yes, Brenda is perfect!

The trouble with Weevils is that it's REALLY hard to tell. even Owen doesn't know most of the time, lol! And Fred could be either without having to change it much, but Ianto is still rolling his eyes at Jack!

Thank you!
I think Owen needs to do a study of how they reproduce. Or no coffee for him. Lol
He IS supposed to be the expert, he should look into things a bit more closely. I'm sure Janet would be happy to help!

Thank you.
I like Fred. And as I recall, so did Romana, LOL!
Fred's a good, solid name. You can't go wrong with Fred!

Thank you!
Could be a Fredrika given their success in sexing weevils!
Or a Freda!

Yeah, Weevils aren't the easiest creatures when it comes to determining gender. Owen suspects that weevils may have three genders and the ones he encounters are almost all the third kind, lol!
***giggles***
Very funny, loved it!!!
Hugs!!!
Thanks, Ani! *hugs back* Glad it gave you a giggle =D
Fred? Not Magenta or Columbia? *giggles*
No, they were two of the other Weevils brought in at the same time as Brad - now renamed Brenda (better hope Rhys never finds THAT out, lol!), and Rocky. ;)

Thank you!
Ha, Brenda! *gigglesnort*
Heehee! I think that was owensheart 's idea, but it really is the best alternative to Brad.
Made me grin :)
Thank you, that's good to hear!
I wait before naming the new arrival Jack until you are sure about pink or blue.
Ah, but isn't that the problem? They can't even tell if adult weevils are male or female, so how could they tell with a baby one?

Thank you!
Lol, brilliant!
Thank you! I needed to write something more cheerful after the last one.
