A/N: A second fill for the square Swan/Deception

The alien, now in its natural form, sat forlornly in its cell.

“What do we do with it now?” Owen asked Jack.

“We find out what it's doing here, aside from pretending to be a native.”

“According to our records, it's a Flummel. They're peaceful scholars,” Ianto supplied.

“I did no harm,” the Flummel protested.

Jack frowned.

“Then why’d you run?”

“I am not authorized to visit your world.” It sounded sheepish.

“So you tried to hide.”

It nodded.

“Why a swan?” Owen demanded.

“They’re similar. I thought I would blend in.”

“And the third leg?” Ianto inquired.

“I miscounted.”

The End


I'm sure anyone caught up in a situation like this, including Ianto, could quite easily miscount body parts they weren't familiar with. I'd much rather they be chasing this swan than the purple one. This one is nice.
Me too, iantojjackh 's swan was SCARY!

Yep, poor thing was quite frantic, not knowing what Torchwood might to to it if they caught it. It needn't have worried though, now they know it's not a threat of any kind I'm sure they can come to an arrangement that suits everybody.

Thank you.

For sure! I'd take the one with three legs over the one with the nasty teeth any day!
Something friendly is always more appealing than something that's trying to kill you.

Not sure how many legs a Flummel should have in its natural form. Two is boring, three would mean the whole 'miscounting' thing wouldn't work, so it must have more than three, maybe six or so... It's important tio figure these things out in case I want to use the character again. ;)
