Drabble: Transforming – First prequel to ‘Weird Awakening’

Title: Transforming – First prequel to ‘Weird Awakening’

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto and Jack test out an educational toy.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘The Experiment’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Jack knew what the device was; he’d seen them before though he’d never had the opportunity to try one. It was a sort of educational toy, popular on a distant planet where the people enjoyed learning through being. The effects were temporary, typically wearing off in a couple of hours. He explained what he knew to Ianto.

Ianto raised an eyebrow.

“So if I press that button I’ll turn into something else?”

Jack nodded.

Smirking, Ianto reached for the device and suddenly, instead of Ianto there was a ferret.

Jack grinned and triggered the device himself. Now for some fun!

TBC in ‘Ferreting About


awww two gorgeous ferrets ... two ... Jack turned into a ferret too, no?
Yep! Two ferrets - one air force blue, the other grey with red pinstipes, lol!

There will be two more parts to this =)

Thank you!
Oh yes,I read again weird awakening
The other two parts will fit between this drabble, which is the first part, and Weird Awakening, which is the final part =)
Oh, so that's what happened! *giggles* I'll bet they were cute ferrets! :D
There are two more drabbles to come to fill the gap between this one and Weird Awakening (well, a double drabble, then a single drabble), so look out for those, hopefully over the next couple of days.

Thank you!
I wouldn't be at all surprised!

Thank you!
Lmao, that reminds me of the scene in Harry Potter 4 where Mad Eye Moody turns poor Draco into a ferret, haha xD Not sure if you've ever seen Harry Potter...

Anyway, let's hope our guys really get their normal shape back - I don't think that they could still work in their job otherwise (and, even worse, Jack couldn't wear his coat anymore!).
They do get turned back, that's the drabble Weird Awakenings that I wrote for one of the tw100 prompts a few weeks ago, I just decided to go back and write the rest of the story because someone asked how they's been turned into ferrets in the first place. There will be two more parts bridging the gap between this drabble and Weird Awakenings to complete the story.

I've read all except the last Harry Potter book, but I haven't seen any of the movies. Can't remember if the ferret scene was in the books or not.

Thank you!
Hee hee! Ferret sex??
I'm sure they will experiment, or just do what comes naturally to a couple of frisky ferrets!

There are two more parts to come.

Thank you!
oh my goodness! Jack and Ianto as ferrets?!!! The Hub will never recover :D. Plus, I want one of those toys! Would be very handy some days.
The fun you can have as something that's not you, LOL! They still have their human minds lurking in the back of their ferret brains, so they won't cause major damage, they'll just explore their environment with their ferret senses and have a good time =)

Thank you. More later today, hopefully!
Bet they're adorable! :)
I'm sure they are - how could they fail to be?

Thank you!
And i can just immagin what they can get upto in the hub LOL.

Great drabble.
You'll even see some of it later today if I can get the next part posted, lol!

Thank you!
OMG. What if Jack turns into a bunny?
It's okay, the machine is set to 'ferret'. I know how my pet rabbit reacted to a stray ferret, even though he had never seen or smelled one in his life. I wouldn't let anything bad happen to the boys. They'll be having ferrety fun in the next part!
ya know, these two guys get up to more trouble and you really aren't helping :D Glad I didn't open this at work; I could never explain what I was falling out of the chair laughing about! :D

Looking forward to part 2...
*grins* But they're so much fun to get into trouble!

Part 2 - Ferreting Around - is posted! =)

Thank you!
Aww cute :-)

And nice to see Ianto taking the lead and pressing the button first, not just being dragged into one of Jack's crazy ideas :-)
Ianto has healthy curiosity and likes learning new things. It's an experiment that has potential for interesting results!

Thank you!
Who knew Ianto had ferret fantasies.
Probably not even Ianto... I think either the device was already on the Ferret setting, or it decided that the most beneficial form for the boys to experience at that time would be the playful, mischievous ferret. A few hours as ferrets would do them a world of good!

Thank you!
I see.
poor Owen.
Well, Owen isn't there so he won't know anything about it. At least, not this time ;)

Thank you!
