Drabble: The Gathering

Title: The Gathering

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 294 – Teddy Bears’ Picnic at tw100

Spoilers: None at all.

Summary: Jack and the team observe some alien visitors.

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

A/N: I decided I should write something that fit the prompt a bit better…






“They’re not actually teddy bears,” Jack explained to his team in a low voice, “they just look similar.”



Truthfully, the creatures really did resemble oversized stuffed toy bears. There were around seventy of them, all shades of brown and grey, sitting in a circle in a woodland clearing.



“Are they having a picnic?” Gwen asked in an awed whisper.



“Clan gathering,” Jack replied. “Every year they choose a neutral planet and the clan leaders gather for a meeting; set up trade, exchange news, elect new leaders, that kind of thing. Don’t worry, they’re peaceful folk. By morning they’ll be gone.”
