Drabble: Fishing

Title: Fishing
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Andy, Tosh.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 498: More at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Andy’s still fairly new to Torchwood, but he’s already learning that the Rift has a warped sense of humour.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

“I’ve already found eighteen; how many more can there be?” Andy asked, fishing another spiky blue object out of the boating lake.

“I can see at least another fourteen,” Tosh’s voice came through his earpiece from where she sat in the SUV, using a highly magnified video feed from one of Torchwood’s satellites to pinpoint the scattered objects and guide her colleague to each one in turn. “Look on the bright side; at least they’re not alive so you don’t have to chase them.”

Dipping his net into the water, Andy snagged number nineteen. “You’re right; it could be worse.”

The End


Yes, it could be a lot worse; at least they're floating on top, not sunk to the bottom.
A very good point!

Wouldn't be the first time the team had to scuba dive for something though ;)

Thank you!
This scene plays like a "What if Gwen never existed"? scenario.

It does rather, but it's really one of my verse's where the team is expanded with a few new members.

Still wish Gwen never HAD existed though ;)

Thank you!

I see.:)

We can dream. It would have been interesting to see how the rebuilt Torchwood was like without Gwen. It was insinuated that it lack "heart" in the past but RTD could have made an episode that showed the positive that came from her existence in the team.

You're always welcome sweetie.

I don't personally think the team lacked heart, and I certainly don't think Gwen supplied it, but then I don't think she learned anything from her colleagues, except perhaps how to fire a gun.

It would have been interesting though.

Rusty just assumed we would agree with his vision. It would have been much more satisfying had he challenged it. I abhor controdictions.
He was too complacent, sure he was right and that was that.

At least that's over.
Oh much much worse LOL.

Great drabble
Whatever they are, they're easier to catch than Weevils!

Thank you!

And he's on the shore and doesn't have to wade in to get them. A pretty soft landing into Torchwood as things go.

There are worst things, and he'll experience them all!

Thank you!
