Drabble: Leprechaun Logic

Title: Leprechaun Logic

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Owen, Jack

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 311 – Leprechauns at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto and Owen try some alien alcohol, with unusual results.

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

A/N: Thanks to Wall With A Fez for the idea!

Owen had tested the alien alcohol, pronouncing it safe for human consumption, so he and Ianto had tried some. Then a bit more, and another glass… It really was very good. Maybe a bit too good.

Giggling and clinging to each other, they staggered through the Hub, searching for something.

Jack watched them, baffled.

“What’re you looking for?”

“Pots of gold,” Ianto grinned dopily.

“S’right!” Owen said solemnly. “Can’t be Leprechauns without pots o’ gold.”


Ianto nodded so hard he fell over.

“Gotta be Leprechauns on Paddy’s Day! It’s patriotic!”

“You’re Welsh!”

“Welsh Leprechaun!” Ianto agreed.

Jack gave up.

The End


Though I can relate to Ianto, here! Can almost picture the Snarky Twins staggering!
This drabble brings back memories ...
Been on some epic pub-crawls on St.Paddy's day, the best/worst one was when I'd consumed 18 pints of Guinness over the course of 14 hours and was still standing/stumbling, being mostly held upright by my partner who is part Irish except that he still insists that 'Everybody is Irish on March 17th'[I am Indian]!!
Of course that particular instance was over a decade ago, doubt my liver and kidneys can stand that sort of punishment nowadays ... Ahhh, youth ...

You would have fitted right in with Owen and Ianto, perhaps between the three of you, you might all have managed to stay upright - I understand tripods are very stable, lol!

Oddly enough, I've never been drunk, just never liked alcohol much *shrugs* I have enough trouble staying upright sober anyway, lol!

Thank you! (I've done a more serious one from the prompt for FAKE, I'm trying to write in both fandoms using the Torchwood prompts - it seemed like a good idea at the time!)
ROTFL!!! Poor Jack, here I thought Ianto was the sensible one in the bunch! I would have LOVED to see John, Gareth and Burn do something like this; it would have been hysterical.

I will not tell you about the hangover my hubby inflicted on both of us nor how we both woke up nekkid and wet the next day -- in BED! I was literally hip-deep in a puddle of water-in BED...

OMG, the hangovers they'll have the next day ...
They'll survive, they've had hangovers before, lol!

They would have done such a great job with the scene, lol!

Thank you!
LOL, these two are hilarious! They should get drunk more often! xD

*grins* Thank you! Drunk leprechaun wannabes are always fun ;)
Thank you! I had almost too much fun writing this one!
These two drunk are hysterical.
Especially when they gang up on Jack in their drunkenness, lol!

Thank you =)
Hehe, poor Jack.
I bet those two drunk is funny! :-)
Funny and in Ianto's case, adorable - who wouldn't love a Welsh Leprechaun?

Thank you!
hahahaha I can't imagine Jack giving up!
Well, he gave up trying to get sense out of a drunken Ianto, lol! If Ianto wants to be a Welsh Leprechaun, Jack isn't going to try to stop him, he's way too cute!

Thank you!
If anyone could be a Welsh Leprechaun, it's Ianto Jones!
He makes a cute Welsh Leprechaun!

Thank you!
Hahha oh this is priceless, made my day this.
*grins* Thank you! Drunk Ianto is adorable =)

*gigglesnort* The Torchwood folks missed comedy gold by not writing a drunk scene with Ianto and Owen. That was priceless! :D
They would have done such a great job with it, lol!

Thank you!
Always love a drunk Ianto,St P's day or not!
I suspect Jack loves a drunk Ianto too - he's so entertaining!

Thank you!
Of course Jack gave up arguing - so many better things to do with a drunken Welsh Leprechaun! LOL!!
Ianto can be very insistent when he's drunk, better just to let him be a Welsh Leprechaun if that's what he wants =)

Thank you!

I know that Ianto is Welsh and they like to drink ...
But I would have hoped more holding from Ianto.
Well, maybe the alien alcohol was a bit stronger than they expected, lol!

Jack is finding the result quite entertaining!

Thank you!
