Drabble: Squishy

Title: Squishy

Summary: Not all aliens are robust…
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.




“Whatever you do, don’t squeeze it,” Ianto warned as Gwen angled her tongs towards one of the small, blobby creatures that had come through the Rift. “They squash easily.”


“If they’re so delicate, why don’t we just use our hands to scoop them up?”


“Because their skin exudes a substance that will melt anything other than metal, glass, or rock and I don’t think you want your fingers dissolving.”


“Not on my list of things to try,” Gwen agreed. “Oops!” The tiny creature she was picking up went squelch, dissolving into a puddle.


Ianto sighed. “Maybe tablespoons would work better.”



The End

Poor thing. Unlucky to get Gwen trying to pick it up
Yes, I feel bad about getting one squished, but Ianto will break out the spoons and the rest will be fine ;)

Thank you!

I don't envy them that task. It doesn't sound easy and I used to have enough trouble not squashing eggs from the chicken coop.

At least eggs are relatively hard on the outside...

Spoons will work, I'm sure all the aliens will be collected in no time, minus the one that got squished.

Thank you!
