Ianto stared at the small group of aliens huddled together in the tourist office. They had endured an unimaginably long and perilous journey to reach Cardiff and now they stood before him, nervous yet hopeful that their quest had not been in vain.

“Let me get this straight. You travelled to Cardiff from the other end of the galaxy?”

Seven heads nodded in unison, round eyes blinking solemnly.

“Loooong way! Many danger. Much time pass.”

“All that way for…?”

“Great delicacy. We take back, we heroes, much praise, many females!”

“Wait here. I have to go shopping. For dog biscuits.”

hahahahaa dog biscuits!!!!!! what strange aliens!!!!!
Well, they're aliens, they HAVE to be strange, it's in the rules ;)

Thank you.
Wonder if they would like some Beggin' Strips (bacon-flavored dog treats) as well? *giggles*

That was cute! :D
I really wouldn't know, you'd have to ask them, lol!

I was wracking my brains for something odd enough for them to be seeking, but ended up with the dog biscuits because nothing else I could think of really worked.

Thank you.
Hilarious! Some people find that fried spiders and boiled larvaes are delicious, so why not dog biscuits? All tastes are in nature. At least their request is easy to satisfy and not likely to endanger the planet. :)
Not to mention that they will be heroes once they get home with an abundance of such a rare and hard to get delicacy.

I suspect they will worship Ianto Jones in future are the bringer of such great riches to them.

Thank you.

LOL were they from the dog star (pun intended)

Great drabble.

I have no idea, they disdn't say, just that it was a very long way.

They will be very popular when they get home!

Thank you.
LOL And, as always, it is up to Ianto to take care of this XD Sweet little drabble that made me smile :)
Ianto does try to help whenever possible, lol, he's very dedicated and good at his job.

Thank you, glad it made you smile!
Hehe :-)
Thank you. Aliens can be so very alien sometimes, lol!
They came to the right man because Ianto knows the best of everything.
Ianto can be relied on to assist any friendly aliens in their quests. These aliens got lucky and will be returning as heroes to their home world.

Thank you.

Fortunately Ianto is equipped phlegm Welsh!
Nothing really surprises Ianto anymore. Still, he doesn't really mind helping friendly aliens, even if it means another shopping trip.

Thank you.
We take back, we heroes, much praise, many females!

I LOL'd for real.

Very amusing! And happily, a request easily fulfilled. :)
I see them as a group of geeky losers who can't get the girls to even look at them, so they pooled their resources and risked everything on the ultimate quest - and triumphed! Ianto was once a geeky teen, he understands. They're going home as heroes and now the girls will HAVE to notice them, they'll finally get dates!

Thank you!
