Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 306 – Under The Sofa at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Something is lurking in the Hub.

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

Something was lurking in the Hub.

It lurked in the shadows under the stairs, barely visible but Ianto knew it was there.

Later, he half saw it lurking behind a kitchen cupboard, almost but not quite hidden.

Jack spotted it lurking beneath his office shelves. Unable to concentrate on his paperwork, he went to bother Ianto in the archives.

It lurked under Tosh’s desk and startled Gwen into dropping the file she was reading.

And when they were eating lunch, there it was lurking under the sofa.

“Why’s Dizzy doing that?” asked Jack.

Ianto smirked.

“It’s hoping for cookie crumbs.”

The End


Ha, ha! I thought it might be Nosy, but Nosy is probably too big to lurk unseen effectively.

Someone give that critter a cookie! :D
Yeah, Nosy has to lurk in plain sight, it won't fit under the sofa! Dizzy, however, is small enough to lurk with great effectiveness under anything, lol! It's a seasoned lurker already, it gets lots of practice.

They're trying to make sure Dizzy doesn't get fat, it's far too fond of cookies!

Thank you!

I like this prompt, I have two more ideas for it =)
They should just give him a whole cookie
If they did that, Dizzy would soon be very fat indeed! LOL!

Thank you!
ooops bad me! I forgot about Dizzy! :(
it is looking for cookie crumbs or playing to be a vacuum cleaner.
Dizzy obviously has a sweet tooth! It does love cookies but the team are worried it will get fat because it's only little.

Thank you!

Hey, Ianto should take Dizzy home with him and have it clean up all those cracker crumbs Jack leaves in bed! *laughs*
A portable organic hoover! *grins*

Dizzy would end up getting fat though, lol!

Thank you!
I'm surprised Jack isn't feeding Dizzy with whatever he drops when he's eating :D
Very cute drabble :D :D :D
Well, fluffs are vegetarians, but they like sweet things too. Dizzy likes sweet things a bit TOO much though, they have to watch it doesn't overindulge and get fat.

Jack's eating habits are improving because he doesn't want the pets to come to harm.

Thank you.
Hehe :-)
Hope it makes up for yesterday's!

Thank you!
Aha. That's so cute. At first I thought it might be Nosy.
(And when I saw the title, I thought it was referring to me. I KNOW I should comment more!)

Nosy is too big to lurk effectively, it can't really hide, but Dizzy is still small enough that it can fit under or behind anything. Though it's on a diet due to eating too many cookies, hence its lurking in the hope of getting some crumbs.

Thank you!
Ha ha Dizzy want treats! soo cute.
But it's learned that begging won't work because it was getting fat and is now on a diet, lol! It can only hope for crumbs, poor little Fluff!

Thank you.
*giggles* I also thought it was Nosy for a sec! They've got a Cookie Monster in the making! ;D
Yep, they do. They msde the mistake of feeding it cookies and now they've had to cut down on treats because it's getting a bit podgy, it wants more! It will stop at nothing to get even cookie crumbs!

Thank you.
Oh I am WAY behind. I didn't know about Dizzy, I thought it was about Nosy at first too. Really cute as usual :) Is Dizzy an alien too?
Dizzy is Nosy's offspring, introduced in my fic Finding Day Surprise, which is set exactly 5 years after Nosy is first discovered. Dizzy is still small enough to lurk in places Nosy wouldn't fit, lol! Think Nosy, but only about a metre long, and it's purple and black instead of green. It's Tosh and Owen's Fluff, so Nosy made it colours it thought they would like.

Thank you!
Thank you!

Just the thought of a tubby little Fluff laying in wait for crumbs was irresistible.
Shame on me!
I forgot who was Dizzy. But it is true that since the adoption, we don't seen a lot since its adoption by Tosh and Owen.
Cute! Nosy not reprimand? Yet she is his mom!
I'm sure Nosy thinks it's funny, Dizzy isn't doing any harm really and Nosy does its share of startling people and stealing food. lol!

Thank you.

There will be more Dizzy when I get around to it.
