Drabble: Snow Joke

Title: Snow Joke

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: It’s been snowing in Cardiff, but Ianto notices something’s not quite right…

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

A/N: For mahmfic’s prompt ‘Snowman’

The people of Cardiff had awoken to a blanket of snow covering the city is sparkling whiteness over a foot deep. Jack was completely enthralled, as he always was by fresh snow, but as they made their way to the Hub on foot, Ianto was troubled. His suspicions were confirmed when they finally arrived at the Plas.

“Jack, I don’t think this is normal snow.”

“What are you talking about? Snow is snow.”

“Usually you’d be correct, but don’t you think it’s the least bit odd that the snowmen are having snowball fights?”

Jack frowned.

“Now that you mention it…”

The End


Uh, oh! Animated snowmen! That might be charming in a Christmas special, but it's probably really creepy in RL.

Good thing Ianto's on the case! :)
So far they don't seem to be causing any trouble, they're just having fun. Hopefully it's not some evil plot this time.

Have you ever read invisible_lift 's short snowman fic In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman? I think it probably helped inspire this.
I hadn't read that, but I just did! LOL. I see it's not clear what the motivations of that snowman were either. Maybe it just wanted to give its creator a hug. ;)

I bet the park around the Castle is lovely all covered with snow!
I'm sure it must be - at least until the snow gets all churned up and muddy. I still don't like snow, but it's pretty in pictures, lol!

I don't think Ianto was willing to take chances in those circumstances, and I don't blame him, it was a pretty creepy snowman!
oops they will have a cold problem in their hands
Looks that way! On the bright side, they seem harmless, just quietly having fun together so hopefully they're the friendly kind of snowman!

Thank you!
And I just saw that ep with the Doctor about the snowmen ... at least these seem playful... Hope Ianto's got enough equipment to melt these guys if they get rambunctious!
I like to think these are the friendly kind of snowmen - they come to life, play and have fun, then melt away to nothing. Torchwood will keep an eye on them, maybe have a word with them, but as long as they cause no trouble they won't be harmed, lol!

Thank you.
For once snowmen can play ... But they are careful not to catch warm by stirring. This would be disastrous for them.
I can not help but think that Jack Frozz is around the corner ...
It's very cold out so they should be okay, at least until the snow melts. Their lives might be short, but they will be full of fun!

Thank you!
Wonder how much retcon they'll have to dole out this time? LOL
Who knows? Maybe they'll just claim a spill of some kind of hallucinogen!

Thank you!
I shudder to think!

Maybe they can pass it off as hallucinogens in the snow...

Thank you!
Oh dear, let's just hope it's not intelligent snow, if you get my meaning! ;)
Thankfully, it doesn't seem to be, just friendly, good natured animated snowmen who want to have fun snowballing.

Thank you.
Alien snow, well of course this is Cardiff after all LOL. looks like torchwood have some work to do.
Maybe they'll just play until they melt and Torchwood can claim mass hallucination, lol!

Thank you!
Frosty on steroids how very Torchwood.
It's why I love Torchwood - anything is possible!

These snowmen are harmless, they're just having fun. Maybe orchwood will tell people there was a mind-altering substance in the snow causing hallucinations. the people of Cardiff will accept whatever they're told, lol!

Thank you.
Hehe, snowmen are allowed to have fun too Ianto!
As long as they keep out of trouble!

Thank you!
Thank you! *grins*
