Drabble: Fighting Back

Title: Fighting Back

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto. Owen mentioned.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 293 – Going Green at tw100

Spoilers: None

Summary: The Hub is being invaded by a seemingly unstoppable foe…

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

Returning to the main Hub, Ianto tugged his overalls off and collapsed on the sofa with a groan, wiping his soot-streaked forehead with the back of one hand.

“How’s it looking down there?” Jack asked, handing him a bottle of water.

Ianto shuddered.

“Not good, the alien mould’s spreading fast. The flamethrowers are keeping it confined to level nine for now, but we can’t hold it off indefinitely. If Owen doesn’t come up with something to kill it soon, the whole Hub will be green and fuzzy by the end of next week. Imagine what that’ll do to the archives!”

TBC in ‘You Solve One Problem…’


Poor Ianto. Hope he can save the archives!
The entire team is battling - except Owen, who is working on a solution to the problem. They have a rotation going. It's Ianto's turn to rest, someone else just went down to relieve him. It's a fierce battle! Tune in tomorrow for the thrilling finale. Or not. ;)

hank you!
My allergies just went into overdrive at the thought of all that mold... ew!
It's not a pretty sight! Everyone's wearing masks and overalls to protect themselves. Nosy is ferrying supplies to the battle front where the team are doing their best to stem the tide. Will they succeed? Tune in tomorrow to find out!

Than you.
Ewww! Virulent alien mold! Good luck, Team Torchwood! I have a feeling you're going to need it.
They need all the help they can get! It's a fierce battle but they're doing their best. If it takes over the Hub, Cardiff will be next! Can Owen come up with something to kill it? Tune in tomorrow to find out.

Thank you!
Oh dear mould is bad enough but alien mould, hope they find an answer fast.

Great drabble.
Thank you. Sequel's posted so you can find out for yourself!
Oh dear - flamethrowers don;t like the sound of that.
There's nothing on level 9 except disused cells, so the flamethrowers are safe enough, but they're only holding the mold back. Torchwood will be in real trouble if Owen can't find a way to stop it permanently!

Thank you.
Oh noes. Not flame-throwers near the archives!
Well, several levels below the archives so it should be safe. Ianto is panicking anyway.

Thank you.
*chews fingernails*
It was a worrying time for the entire team.

Thank you.
Eeep! No harm must come to the archives!
That would be a Very Bad Thing! Ianto is fiercely protective of his archives.

Thank you.
Oh man. An archivist's worst nightmare!
Yep! Ianto is fiercely protective of his archives, no way he was letting that mould anywhere near them!

Thank you!
Very Yuck!

Of course, Owen's solution to the problem just causes an even yuckier problem...

Thank you.
ummm that looks creepy!
The team aren't too happy about it either!

Thank you!
green and fuzzy??
Of course, Ianto think first of archives!!
I think rather to computers, Jack's office, to the coffee machine!
what will they do without coffee??
The mould would reach the archives long before it got to any of the other things and the paper files would be completely destroyed, all that vital information lost.

Thank you.
