Drabble: Lazy Day

Title: Lazy Day

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen, Ianto, Jack, Gwen, Tosh, Myfanwy.

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: There’s nothing to do, so the team have a lazy day.

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

A/N: For kul_breez’s prompt ‘lazy day - Torchwood style’. This one’s a double drabble.

For the first time in living memory, team Torchwood had absolutely nothing to do.

All their paperwork was finished, all the filing done; cataloguing was up to date… There wasn’t even a corpse for Owen to dissect or one of Tosh’s programmes needing work.

“Now what?” asked Owen, throwing himself down on the sofa.

“Now we have a lazy day.” Ianto’s voice drifted up from where he lay on the floor, legs on the sofa, watching Myfanwy lazily circle the Hub on an updraft.

“Doing what?” Owen grumbled.

“Anything,” Jack replied, lying down beside Ianto. “Or possibly nothing at all.”


“Doing nothing suits me just fine.” Gwen flopped down beside Jack. “Been run off my feet planning the wedding. It’ll be nice doing nothing for a change.” She stared up at Myfanwy with a happy sigh.

Stretching herself out on the floor to Ianto’s other side, Tosh let out a huge yawn, setting everyone else off.

“I can’t remember the last time I felt so relaxed,” she admitted.

“You lot are weird,” Owen muttered, sliding off the sofa to lay down with them. “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

Watching them from above, Myfanwy sighed. She’d never understand humans.

The End


Very cozy.

It makes me miss the show all the more. The first moment I knew Torchwood was doomed was when I read they used the redressed hub set for the Doctor Who Christmas episode and it was "in storage." I knew we would never see that brilliant set again.
Yeah, that spelled the end. I loved the Hub set, it was so enormous but it felt right and it gave lots of scope for filming.

THank you.
Here's a prompt: Myfanwy lays an egg and/or becomes enamored of ......
Didn't I already do egg-laying? I can't remember, LOL! So many drabbles....

Thank you!
I love hearing Myfanwy's thoughts. She usually somehow manages to sound more intelligent than a lot of humans I know.
She finds humans baffling, but quite amusing, lol!

Thank you.
of course her humans are weird, they are TW!
True! She doesn't mind them being weird really, she just finds it puzzling. Everytime she thinks she knows how they behave, they do something unexpected!

Thank you.
It's perfect! Better tan I hoped for! I love the visual of them all on the floor and Myfanwy circling overhead. Very, very well done... and a double drabble bonus!

Thank you!
YAY! Glad you like it!

The moment I saw the prompt I got the image in my head of Ianto laying on ther floor with his legs on the sofa, being as lazy as possible. The others seemerd to like the idea so they decided they'd join him. Myf is just confused, poor thing. Everytime she thinks she has them figured out, they do something odd.

(I've done another of your prompts, but I'm not telling you which, you'll have to wait and see!)

Thank you.
Only at Torchwood would a lazy day consist of watching a pteranodon. ;)

Nicely done.

They have a unique spin on most ordinary activities, don't they?

Life with Torchwood is certainly different!

Thank you.
This was great. I also love it when Myf weighs in on events. :)
She couldn't help noticing they were all staring at her, she just doesn't know why!

Thank you.
Lovely lazy day at Torchwood, bet that doesn't last long LOL.

Great work.
I think they deserve as day off, so I'll wave my wand and make it so! ;)

Thank you.
It's great to see the Team like this. They deserve a lazy, contemplative day like this. Even if IS confusing to a certain resident Pter. ;)
They don't often get the opportunity to just relax, so they make the most of it on rare occasions such as this.

Poor Myf, her humans are so baffling.

Thank you.
These are great
Thank you!

It's about time the team got a chance to relax a bit!
I want a lazy day like that, too *whines* XD It would be so great... and this story is great too ::) <3
*grins* Don't we all!

Torchwood don't get such lazy days often, which I suppose is why Ianto has to demonstrate the proper way of enjoying them! LOL! He does know everything, after all.

Thank you!
I love it. Even if I don't comment as much as I should, I want you to know that I love everything you write. It's so pleasant to come back from work everyday and to know that I'll find one of your drabbles or fics on my friends page. Thank you for all the fluff you put into my life. :D
You're welcome, I hope I can continue to provide plenty of fluff!

The next few aren't exactly fluffy though, sorry!

Thank you!
Nice :-)
Thank you!

I think we could both use a proper Lazy Day!
I replied to this on DW. I loved your drabble and Myfanwy too. Also, can I steal the icon you used on your drabble? I've never seen that one. Really great icon! I will never forget that scene with Jack's watch and John talking to him like the Princess Leia hologram. :)

Thank you, and of course you can, just remember to credit the maker!

It's a great icon. I needed a Torchwood team icon so I went hunting and got two - one for here and one for dreamwidth.
a moment of peaceful.
They really deserve it every once in a while, it's nice giving them a chance to relax.

Thank you.
