“Right,” said Ianto, “I’m off to the library, does anyone have any books to return?”

“I do!” yelled Jack, scrambling to fetch his books. “I’ve got a book reserved too. Just came in, could you collect it for me please?” He gave Ianto his best puppy dog eyes as he handed over his books and library card.

“No problem, Cariad.”

Nosy hurriedly slithered over, its toy cart laden with books.


“Yes, Nosy, I’ll get you some more books.”

“Hang on, Nosy has a library card?” Owen was stunned.

“Of course it does,” Ianto smirked. “Under the name Neil Ayson.”

The End

A/N: Confused by Nosy’s alias? Try reading it backwards ;)


OHW Nosys Alias is pure Genius!! great drabble.
*grins* Thank you! Thankfully, Alien written backwards makes a good starting point for a name, lol!
*sniggers* Oh, Ianto. You would come up with something like that, wouldn't you?

Too adorable.
*grins* Well, he could hardly get Nosy a library card as Nosy the Fluff, could he?

I tried so hard to come up with an anagram of that, but it doesn't work - too many 'f's and not enough vowels, lol!

Thank you!
awwww I didn't know Nosy could read, or are they just with pictures?
The name on her card is amazing! (for me Nosy is a she ;)
LOL! A lot of people feel Nosy is a boy, I think ypu're the only one who sees it as a girl! Strictly speaking, it's not really either, but it doesn't mind what people call it.

I think Ianto is teaching Nosy to read by this point, though Nosy does prefer books with pictures as well as writing.

Thank you.

This is my 300th drabble!
Ianto is teaching it to read, but it likes looking at the pictures too, lol!

Thank you!
Excellent! when I get home from my son's house I will post something lol! i figure if the prompt is still the same why not add another?

:) and love the alias too!

*grins* Thank you!

It's fair game until the next prompt is up - which probably won't be until Monday at the earliest now. I have two more written for the Library prompt, so hopefully I'll get them posted before the next prompt appears.

Good luck with getting another up yorself!
This is made of so much awesome. Of course Nosy has a library card, and his alias is hilarious. Absolutely loved it. :)
*grins* Thank you! I had to work a bit on finding an alias because anagrams of Nosy the Fluff just did not work - sometimes the simplest approach gets the best result. I wonder if there IS a Neil Ayson out there somewhere...
How cute! But can Nosy read, or is it picture books?
Bookworm was my nickname too.
It's learning to read, Ianto is a very good and patient teacher, but it does love looking at the pictures =)

My teacher nicknamed me Pony Express when I was about 9, because I took my satchel everywhere.
*gigglesnort* Aw, how cute! And hilarious! :D
*grins* Thank you! Nosy is the biggest and fluffiest bookworm ever!
Brilliant alias!! :D Ok, this is my second favorite use of the library prompt you did :D
Thank you! I just had to have a Nosy library drabble, lol!
Aw... Nosy loves to read cause Ianto is such a good and patient teacher. Love Nosy's alias :)

And this "Library prompt has really turned up some great fics.... Would say it almost rivals my all time favourite "Buttons" prompt.

Thanks for sharing <33 and I look forward to more, more....
Thank you!

Yes, Ianto is behind Nosy's love of books, he want to make sure their Fluff gets a good education. ;)

It really has been a good prompt - I even still have one more to post, but the new prompt has been posted early =(

Still, I'll post the last one on all my journals anyway, even though I can't post it to the community.
Actually, I've always thought that Nosy was probably pretty smart. I think s/he was reading a young adult novel.
Not quite yet, but it's learning fast, Ianto is a good teacher. Turning the pages can be a bit tricky though, lol!

Thank you!
Hehe love the name!
What is nosy's favourite book?
*grins* Thank you!

I think maybe Where The Wild Things Are, or something by Dr Seuss, lol!
You are too funny :D:D:D:D:D Neil Ayson, indeed! Hahaha!
*grins* Thank you!

Well, Nosy could hardly register as Nosy the Fluff, lol! Ianto had to come up with an alternative ;)
Welcome to the club of readers Nosy!!
but ah??
they have time to read??
Everyone needs time to read, they find time somehow. Ianto is teaching Nosy!

Thank you!
