Drabble: Natural Attraction

Title: Natural Attraction

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen, Ianto

Rating: PG-13 for Owen being Owen

Written For: Challenge 313 – Open at tw100. Prompt used is Challenge 161: Bugs.

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto has some fun at Owen’s expense. Could be subtitled 'Revenge Is Sweet'.

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

A/N: My eighteenth drabble for this challenge.

“I hate bugs!” Owen whined, batting ineffectually at the swarming insects.

“You hate everything,” Ianto replied, rolling his eyes. “They probably sense that. Or they’re attracted to that godawful aftershave you use, could be either.”

Owen glared, opened his mouth to deliver what would have been a particularly scathing retort, and immediately started choking as he swallowed one of the insects.

Ianto smirked.

“How do they taste?”

Coughing, spluttering and cursing, Owen snarled, “Get the fucking things off me!”

“As you wish.”

Ianto picked up the hose, smiling, and turned it on full, soaking Owen to the skin.



The End


I love it when Ianto is mean, hehe!
Oh, revenge is sweet indeed - or wet in this case! ;D
Owen deserved it!

Thank you!
hahahahahah what a nice way to get rid of him!
Ianto is very inventive when it comes to getting revenge!

Thank you!
Owen's just never happy, is he? *laughs*
There's no satisfying some people *sigh* He wanted Ianto to get rid of the insects, Ianto just did as he was asked ;)

Thank you!
Let's see Owen call Ianto the Team Pet again! *giggles*
Maybe this time he'll learn his lesson - Ianto is very inventive when it comes to revenge!]

Thank you!
GROSS I have certain bugs too poor Owen. hehe but love how Ianto got them off him.

great drabble
Most don't bother me, except mosquitoes. (I wouldn't eant to be attacked by a swarm of wasps though.)

Ianto is ingenious - or possibly just fiendish, lol!

Thank you!
Hub wars are alive and running.
Lol! It is like a Hub Wars episode, isn't it. Hope my friends iantojjackh and tardisjournal don't mind!

Thank you!
ROLF! Get him, Ianto!

Mind? I don't mind at all. I'm honored that Hub Wars seem to have taken on a life of its own and become a "thing". I love the idea that, somewhere in the AU that lives in our minds, Ianto and Owen are alive, well, and endlessly pranking each other. :D

Interestingly, the first "Hub War" installment also involved insects, so in a way this is coming full circle. And further proof that bugs will always be a way to get under Owen's skin. :-p

LOL! Thank you! I hadn't realised I'd inadvertently committed Hub Wars, but this is just what happened when I started writing for the 'bugs' prompt. Sometimes, I have no idea what I'm going to write, I just start typing and see what happens. If I like what I end up with, I post it, lol!

Ianto and Owen will prank each other throughout eternity, they can't help themselves and it's useless trying to stop them. It's just how they interract.
Hehe :-)
Although I do symapthise with poor Owen - I don't like bugs either!
Most don't bother me, but I wouldn't want to swallow one. Being caught in a swarm wouldn't be fun either.

Thank you!

and another method for revenge.
cold shower is good too.
but how Owen found himself covered with insects?
I suspect Ianto slipped something into Owen's coffee to make him irresistible to insects, lol!
