Drabble: Competitive

Title: Competitive

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: George and two others

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: There are mysterious things going on in the Hub!

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

A/N: For fanbot. Prompt at the end.

Everyone thought it strange that whenever the whole team went out together, there was always CCTV footage missing when they returned.

It was a complete mystery.


The moment the Hub was empty, George fetched the chessboard, setting it up on the coffee table in readiness for the players, who took up their positions on either side.

Silence reigned except for the muted click of the pieces being moved.

Being closely matched, complete concentration was required from both players. Time ticked slowly past, until…

“Hummmmm!” (Checkmate!)

“Squawk?” (Are you sure?)

“Hum,” Nosy confirmed. (See for yourself.)

Myfanwy huffed.

“Kaaaa!” (Smarty Fluff!)

The End

A/N2: For the prompt ‘Myfanwy vs. ...’


Hahaha! Love the image of these two playing chess.
Thank you. For some reason it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the prompt.

(I have some of your prompts written and hope to write more, just waiting for the ideas to come. I'm also accepting more prompts!)
*heehee* If the team only knew! ;D
They have no idea how smart the team's mascots are, they'd get the shock of their lives if they found out! Really, George is doing them a favour by deleting the CCTV footage, lol!

Thank you.
haha loved this what clever creatures.
They're smarter than the team realises, lol!

Thank you!
OMG! can you imagine those two big ones playing with such small pieces!!!!!!
lovely idea!
They've got a good sized chess set like mine. My board is 20 inches each way and the smallest pieces are 2 inches tall. They still have to be careful not to knock pieces over but they manage.

Thank you.
LOL LOL lol lol lol lol
what else to say??????

the team is not going to think about putting a hidden camera??? after all, the missing footage that could hide something serious, like an invasion ...
But maybe Ianto knows, with his ability deduction, he can be guessed ...
I wouldn't be surprised if Ianto, or maybe Tosh, knows what's going on.

Thank you.
Hee hee! Oh, that's funny!

Thank you! We seldom know what our pets get up to when we're not there, lol!
Ha, ha! The Hub's mascots are all in cahoots. Guess they want to keep "game night" all to themselves. :D

You should see it when they play poker! George always wins, he has the best poker face, lol!

Thank you.
Bahahaha! I just bet he does! And he's got those sleeves that are good for hiding cards in, and hands no one ever even sees, which would be good for "slight of hand", if he were so inclined. I definitely wouldn't play George! LOL.
I always think of Ianto as a good poker player, and George knows what Ianto knows... So yeah, George would be an ace card player, impossible to read. I wouldn't gamble against him!
Don't worry Myfanwy you will do better next time.
She's just a sore loser. She's won half their games, they're very evenly matched, but she gets grouchy when she loses.

Nosy doesn't mind either way, it just likes playing. It's happy when it wins, but doesn't sulk when it loses.

Thank you.
Hehe brilliant :-)
Thank you! I've had some fun prompts to play with, and I'm still open for more!
I can just picture it, LOL!
*grins* It would be a sight to see, for sure!

Thank you!
Smart very smart!

Love it! so smart and they play hess!!!! awesome!
Only the smartest get to join Torchweood ;)

Thank you!
