Drabble: Fair Trade

Title: Fair Trade

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Unknown Aliens

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 310 – Caffeine at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Aliens have come to Torchwood to arrange trade.

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

Well, this was certainly an intriguing proposition. Not that aliens wishing to trade for valuable commodities was all that unusual; only last year there’d been a group of aliens who’d traded flawless gems for dog biscuits. That had been interesting, but this…

These beings were interested in trading for Jelly Babies. It seemed a strange visitor some years earlier had got them hooked on the sweet treat so they were seeking a supplier.

They’d chosen their trade goods well. Owen had done a full analysis, now Ianto tested the product.

“You have a deal.”

Premium grade coffee beans; caffeine heaven!

The End


I'm not surprised. But they probably won't get coffee as good as Ianto makes.
Maybe they don't drink coffee at all - the beans are merely their trade goods. Ianto's impressed with the quality though, he can make excellent coffee for the price of a few jelly babies, lol.

Thank you!
I think I can guess WHO got them hooked on Jelly beans LOL

that is a fair trade tho. Great drabble.
Yep, ecveryone can guess WHO is responsible, lol!

Thank you!
You just have to love the Doctor for spreading the love of Jelly Babies throughout the universe XD And no wonder that these are aliens after the whole of TW's hearts LOL

Thanks for sharing, the WE looks bleak, so this was really a sweet pick-me-up :)
Thank you! The Doctor has spread joy as well as chaos throughout the universe, lol! I think the aliens did some research before approaching Torchwood with a few to trading ;)

Hopefully I can pick you up more today, I have two drabbles I want to post, leaving just one for tomorrow in case the new prompt is early again.
Oh, that Four! *shakes head*

He probably did it on purpose knowing that these aliens would come to Earth and meet Ianto, and knew that Ianto was the King of Coffee, and...well, timey whimey. *laughs*
One can never discount timey wimeyness where the Doctor is concerned ;)

Thank you!
Ok, I saw this after my last posted note: I repeat, the Doctor needs to set Ianto up with an intergalactic trading post, not just a cafe. Ianto could clean up a lot of problems with his coffee and ability to trade and Jack could be part manager! :D :D :D

A terrific drabble...
*laughs* Ianto's Intergalactic Coffee Emporium and Trading Post! Has a certain ring to it, doesn't it?

Jack would be happy as long as he got free samples and time off with the boss ;)

Thank you!
The Adventures of Ianto Jones' Intergalactic Coffee Emporium & Trading Post has a wonderful ring to it, especially with (Nosy, Janet and Mfanwy protecting the place). Maybe one day in the future this would be another drabble setup.... :D
You never know...
Hee, Doctor Who reference! Slick! ;D
*grins* Thank you!

The Fourth Doctor got his foot in the door and now he keeps sneaking back in, lol!
Lol :-)
and both parts won their treats!
They did, it's a very beneficial arrangement for everyone!

Thank you =)
Magic cofeee.
And Nosy....
Ianto is very pleased!

Thank you!
