Drabble: Like A Soap

Title: Like A Soap

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Tosh, Owen, Jack, Gwen & OCs

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 305 – Soap Operas at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Life with Torchwood is worse than a soap opera at times.

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

It had been a hellish week, even by Torchwood standards.

A stranger accused Ianto of being the father of her unborn baby, despite the fact they’d never met and she wasn’t pregnant anyway.

Tosh had come face to face with her evil twin.

Owen found himself being sued for malpractice because someone had stolen his identity and injured a patient.

Jack had woken up in the city morgue, twice, and Gwen was at war with her in-laws over a recipe.

“Someone should make a TV show about us. It would be the most whacked-out soap opera ever made,” muttered Owen.

The End


No, Owen...I've seen much worse.

Although, Tosh and an evil twin...now I think I'd pay to see that! *laughs*
Soaps can be really bad, I don't think my imagination was quite up to the task, but I tried, lol!

Tosh and her evil alternate universe twin would be fun, as long as the team made sure they kept the right one!

Thank you.

That lady would've gotten pregnant just by hearing Ianto's voice! It's that sexy! ;)

An evil Tosh? Good Tosh is scary enough!

I'm amazed Jack doesn't wake up in the morgue more often...

Imagine if they knew that there really is a TV show about them! ;D
LOL! They'd want to watch it and then they'd pick it apart, I'm sure.

Evil Tosh is scary, but she's no match for Good Tosh.

If she's seen Jack first, she probably would have accused him. Hell, she most likely would have accused the first man she met, or even every man she met. She was weird, lol!

Thank you.
Jack and Ianto could make their own soap,with their drama.
That would be the only soap I would ever willingly watch!

Thank you!
Tosh and her evil twin battling over Owen would be funny as hell but watching Jack scare the heck out of morgue attendants determined to keep him would be wilder. Jack would find very creative ways to get away from them, including a little shagging...

Ianto, Owen and Gwen would be the normal ones in this opera...
Well, maybe, maybe not. I might expand on some of the ideas at some point, and they might be less normal than they seem. Well, except for Gwen's which would be completely normal and ordinary. We already know Brenda is very sensible and doesn't like Gwen!

Thank you!
Well Id watch that....oh wait we did lol.

great fic.
Ah, but it was seldom as wacky as it could have been!

Thank you!
I think you just summed up why I dont watch soaps!
(although I might be persuaded to watch one staring the torchwood team.)
Heehee! Likewise. I loathe soaps. I had to draw on everything that's seeped through from living with a soap addict mother to write this.

On the other hand, I'd watch anything that had Jack and Ianto in it.

Thank you.
Nice image
Thank you.
Owen, they did. It was called Torchwood and it was great fun. For a while, anyway.
That'll be a shock to Owen! ;)

Thank you.
We have a phrase in our household. It's "Soap Alert", which means that a soap has come on and it's time to change the channel, LOL!
You live in a sensible household!

It's why I spend all my time in my room, I can keep clear of the soaps mum watches that way, lol!

Thank you.
I'm sure it will! what a week!!!
It was one of their less enjoyable weeks!

Thank you!
Thank you!
