The Ninth Day…

On the tenth day of Christmas, Tommy Lord found a twinkling cube in his greenhouse and took it indoors to show his wife.

By the time the team managed to trace what had come through the Rift, all ten members of the Lord family, including their two pet cats, had been turned into frogs.

Luckily, they were all inside at the time, otherwise Torchwood might never have found them. As it was, they spent two hours trying to catch the leaping Lords so Tosh could change them back.

Ianto wondered if it was too late to run away from home.

TBC in ‘The Eleventh Day…


Loved it :-)

Poor Ianto. Don't run away- only two more days to go... (I think I may be looking forward to them slightly more than Ianto is!)
I think that's a safe assumption. Jack probably has to drag Ianto out from under the bed every day, promising all sorts of things just to get him to come in to work.

Thank you.
LOL! You--and the Rift--have done it again! I really thought "10 Lords a Leaping" might be something Jack would enjoy dealing with *wink*, but then again we already had the construction workers for him to ogle, so I couldn't imagine where you were going with this prompt.


Guys, if you see Ianto packing a suitcase, don't let him leave the Hub! We might never see him again. :-p
Ianto's retreated under the bed again and Jack's trying to coax him out. It gets more difficult every day. Poor Ianto.

Frogs are very slippery and hard to catch, I'm sure the team were leaping around the house bumping into each other, catching and losing frogs. It must have been complete chaos.

Thank you.

(I have two tomorrow as the first one wasn't going right. I'll still post it as an alternate like I did on Day Eight, but I think the new one works a bit better because it shows Ianto's at the end of his tether.)
Oh1 I love frogs! if they can't turn them back, they can join my two resident frogs!
Poor Ianto! hang on two more days!!!!
I love frogs too, we have lots in our garden pond. They really are hard to catch though, very slippery.

Poor Ianto, he'll be so glad when this is all over.

Thank you.
Ianto needs Santa Jack to make him feel better. ;)
He really does! I think he's about ready to quit Torchwood and find a nice cave to be a hermit in.

Thank you.
*spits coffee & chips*
*kaff! kaff! kaff!*
LMAO! omg...the Demented One strikes again! Poor Ianto has his apartment door chained to keep from going to work! You'll never get him out for tomorrow!
This is the most memorable bunch of thoroughly enjoyable drabbles; I've had so much fun reading these. Can't wait to see what you do with the last two.
Oops! Sorry, didn't mean to make you choke! You akay there?

Ianto's taken refuge under the bed again, Jack's on hands and knees trying tom coax him out but I don't know if he'll succeed in time for tomorrow, lol!

Thank you, I hope you'll enjoy the fruits of my demented imagination for the last two days!
Run away, Ianto! Run far, far away!!


This was hilarious. Absolutely hilarious.

I wonder though...to change the frogs back, did they need a kiss??
No, much to Jack's disappointment and everyone else's relief, lol!

Ianto is still seriously considering escaping the madness, but Jack's trying very hard to persuade him to stay, After all, there are only two more days, surely Ianto can manage to get through those, can't he? Jack's not above begging...

Thank you.
Jack better treat Ianto to special time once these days are over.
He'll pamper his Ianto and be extra attentive to all his needs. He doesn't like seeing Ianto so frazzled

Thank you.
I can just see them running all over the house, trying to catch all the slippery leaping Lords...LOL!!

It was a tough job, Ianto had to fetch butterfly nets in the end!

Thank you!
LOL Iantos had a gut full aready.

Great drabble.
He really has, poor boy. He just wants to hide away somewhere, or wake up and find it was just a bad dream.

Thank you.
Did you know that when you snort soda through your nose it burns slightly? Just thought you should know. Cleans screen while giggling.
Only slightly? *raises eyebrow* Chocolate and toast are both exceedingly painful. I'd advise you not to try it with them.

Apologies for your discomfort. ;)

Thank you!
lol. I understand Ianto.
Poor boy, he'd really had enough by this point!

Thank you!
