“They wanted what?” Gwen asked, gaping.

“Dog biscuits. Bonio actually. They’re the ultimate delicacy on their world.” Ianto shrugged. “Don’t think much to them myself, rather dry. No accounting for taste though.”

“Wait a minute, you tried one?”

Ianto looked surprised. “Of course. How else would I find out what other biscuits they might like? Sent them home with an ample supply and some samples.”

“Hold on,” Jack butted in, “Who paid for this bounty?”

“They did. Used my credit card though, didn’t think the supermarket would accept their currency.” He held out several flawless sapphires.

“They’re welcome back anytime.”

The End


Flawless sapphires for dog biscuits? They can ask me for help anytime.;)

Besides, I wouldn't be suprised that, sometimes dog biscuits could have a better taste than some human food. :(

Very funny!
Maybe sapphires aren't worth as much on their world, it's all about availability after all. If sapphires were everywhere here, they wouldn't be worth much; it's only because they're hard to come by that they're valuable. The more common something is, the less it's worth.

Thank you.

Ahahaha - sapphires for dog biscuits - I would SO do that :)
Seems like a fair trade to me ;)

Thank you!
I can offer myself to shop for them any time .... one of my weakness and the most expensive are jewels and whenever I can, I treat myself with one ....
I prefer semi-precious to precious stones, but sapphires are lovely. Not fond of diamonds though, I find them boring, I'd rather have clear quartz or Apophyllite.

Ianto is quite happy to supply these aliens with whatever they want if that's how they plan to pay!

Thank you.
I too prefer sapphires to diamonds.
Diamonds are just cold. Sapphires are lovely, Emeralds and Rubies are nice too. Garnets are better though.
Ah, Ianto, leave it to him to get a great deal! :) Very cute drabbles :)
Thank you.

Well, of course Ianto got a good deal. He's a canny shopper and very good at trading with aliens so everyone comes away from the deal feeling like they've got a bargain!
Actually dog buscuits arent really that bad, some are quite nice.

Great drabble.
Tha aliens certainly think so!

Thank you.
Hehe - love that Ianto actually tried them!

I ate cat biscuits once as a dare when I was little. They weren't as bad as I expected.
Ianto is very thorough, he was bound to taste test them, just to be sure, lol!

I've never been daring, though I did steal the class gerbil's sunflower seeds when I was at school.
Made me smile big time
YAY! Thank you, I love to make people smile =D
Hee, Torchwood could start a sideline here! ;)
Ianto is skilled at trading with aliens, he'll always make sure to get a good deal.

Thank you.
Hee! This actually sounds very plausible to me, since I spend most of my time with a fellow who would do ANYTHING for dog biscuits but wouldn't give a fig about precious stones. Unless they were covered in biscuit crumbs. *g*

Thank you. Value is determined by availability. On their world, dog biscuits have to be imported from the source at great expense and even greater risk. Sapphires, on the other hand, are probably everywhere. Ianto got an excellent deal and the aliens left believing they'd got a bargain. everybody's happy.
conscencieux always!
Yep! That's our Ianto!

Thank you.
LOL! I just bet they're welcome back anytime.

My dog won't even eat dog biscuits! Sure wish those aliens would come here, I've got a deal for them on several unused bags! :-p
Misty was fussy too, wouldn't eat most rabbit biscuits.

It takes all kinds to make a universe. At least the brave little aliens went home happy and successful. If Ianto got an excellent deal, so much the better!

Thank you.
