Drabble: It’s Good To Be Green – Sequel to ‘A Brighter Shade Of Green’

Title: It’s Good To Be Green – Sequel to ‘A Brighter Shade Of Green’

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, Owen, Tosh, Andy, Mickey, Gwen… and Nosy.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 293 – Going Green at tw100

Spoilers: None

Summary: Nosy’s colour change is the most interesting thing happening in the Hub…

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

A/N: There were so many great theories in the comments for the first of these that I just had to write this. I’m sure everyone will recognise their own ideas, so I’ll just say a big thank you to all who contributed; without you, this third part would probably not exist and you’d all be left wondering!

The team sat around the boardroom table, discussing Nosy’s colour change.

“Okay, what theories do we have?” Jack asked.

“It changes colour at will for camouflage.” Ianto was sticking with his original idea.

“Faded due to poor diet.” So was Owen.

“It fades in sunlight?” suggested Andy.

“In Wales?” Ianto’s eyebrows were getting a good workout.

“Maybe it’s moulting,” said Tosh.

“Doesn’t seem to be,” Mickey grinned. “I’m sure Ianto would’ve noticed.”

“It likes Sesame Street; maybe it’s copying Kermit,” Gwen giggled.

Under the table, Nosy listened, amused.

‘Green shows up. I don’t get stepped on,’ it thought with satisfaction.

The End


So it can change colors when it wants to? Pleez can it go purple at some point?

I thought of some Nosy jokes just for you:

What do you call a fuzzy alien who moves really fast? A runny Nosy!

What do you call a sleepy fuzzy alien? A dozy Nosy!

What do call a children's game when a fuzzy alien plays it? A Ring Around the Rosy Nosy?

(Ok, I'll go back to my padded room now, LOL).
ROFLMAO! *wipes away tears of laughter*

I love them all. Dozy Nosy - I'm sure they get that a lot after a long day!

Nosy can be whatever colour it wants, there's always a chance it'll turn purple!
LOL! Clever Nosy! I love that it can control the color change. Does this mean Ianto is right too and it was camouflaging itself in the wild to blend in?

I see we have some additional team members in the Nosy verse as well. :)

This was fun!
If you look carefully, you'll find Andy and Mickey have been there all along - they joined the team before Nosy did.

Yes, Nosy was deliberately camouflaged when Ianto fell over it. People kept shooting at it, so it hid itself, figuring it would be safer and only ventured forth at night, grazing among the sheep. I think Owen was probably a little right as well and that Nosy can be brighter colours on a good diet, maybe even change colour faster when well-nourished. In the Hub, I imagine it just kept adjusting its colour until it felt confident that all parts of it were clearly visible to everyone, then stuck with the most effective shade, lol!

Thank you.

Ha, clever Nosy! Sometimes I think he's smarter than the rest of them! ;D
Nosy is smart in its own way, and it has a strong sense of self-preservation. Being stepped on hurts!

Thank you.
I was on holidays, today I've read all the fics, loved them.
Big hug, my dear friend!!!
Hi Ani! *hugs back*

Thank you, glad you liked them! Hope you had a good holiday!
Of course! He's green because he wants to be! LOL!
Yep! That's a Fluff for you. Nosy has its own reasons for choosing to be green.

Thank you.

HAhaah oh nosy is clever, great story.
Nosy has good sense.

Thank you!
Haha! Of course it's to avoid getting stepped on! That makes too much sense! LOL!
Nosy's been stepped on before. It didn't like it. Therefore, it's taking what precautions it can, lol!

Thank you!
Hehe loved it :-)
Clever nosy going green as anti-camouflage!
Fluffs are fortunate that way, they can choose to be any colour they want. Camouflage is good in some circumstances but there are times when being highly visible is more prudent. The way people charge around the Hub at times, Nosy figures a nice, bright green is not just pretty, it's practical, lol!

Thank you!
Great read for a Sunday night
Thank you, glad you enjoyed!
Hehe! Nosy is so cute.
Cute and sensible - an irresistible combination!

Thank you!
Ah ha! Smart Nosy. Sometimes bright colors are best!
They certainly show up best if you want to make sure you're seen!

Thank you.
aha so Smart!Nosy goes Green to avoid problems!!!!!
Well done Nosy!
Nosy is one smart Fluff!

Thank you!
All these beautiful hypotheses are true ! coffee him good, food with the right vitamins too. since he is in the Hub, he could see that he was loved. and it is true that evolve to the ground can be dangerous in times of panic that knows the hub!

This is the color he chooses. Green is the color of hope. (He could have chosen red for Ianto and Jack)
the hypothese of Andy! lol, Nosy often goes out?
Fortunately, it seems that Nosy not moult! Finally, I hope! otherwise poor Ianto.
Thank you. I think Nosy made the right choice, it won't be mistaken for anything else unless it's in the hothouse among the plants.

Maybe we'll see whether or not Nosy moults some other time. ;)
LOL!!! Very cute and I swear I didn't look ahead or read other comments when I thought of Kermit the frog but it's a good reason/ So it could be seen :) Nicely done!
Thank you! I nearly called this one It's Easier Being Green ;)

Nosy has good sense, and its own kind of logic.
