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.
