Drabble: Frazzled

Title: Frazzled

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Nosy, mentions Team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 313 – Open at tw100. Prompt used is Challenge 240: Curiosity Killed The Cat.

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Nosy’s nosiness gets it into a spot of bother.

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

A/N: My twentieth drabble for this challenge.

Nosy was, as its name would suggest, somewhat nosy. Whatever anyone was doing, sooner or later the curious alien would have to investigate.

Usually, Nosy simply watched, finding even routine things fascinating. It would peer over Tosh’s shoulder at her computer screen or hang over the railings watching Owen performing an autopsy.

One day, poking around on Gwen’s desk, there was a zapping sound and suddenly Nosy’s fluff was standing on end. It gave a startled squeak.

“Let that be a lesson to you,” Ianto said sternly, retrieving the errant Taser. “Curiosity kills the cat, but it frazzles the Fluff!”

The End


Shocking story.
Absolutely ;)

Thank you!
That's what you get for being literally nosy, lol! I don't think this incident will teach the little alien a lesson though xD
Not so little, it's several meters long, lol! But no, it won't really curb Nosy's curiosity though it will probably use a tool of some sort to poke about on Gwen's desk with in future, just to be on the safe side after this hair-raising incident!

Thank you!
LOL! I bet it took forever to get its fluff to lay back down! Or a prodigious use of conditioner.
Jack and Ianto tried to help, but kept getting static electric shocks. Nosy was banned from the computer area until the effects wore off, in case it accidentally shorted anything out.

Thank you!
Yikes, Nosy needs some gel! *giggles*
Electrically charged Fluff on the loose, lol! Touch it and your own hair will stand on end!

Thank you!
Nosy isn't the least bit squeamish. Everything is of interest.

Can't say I'd enjoy watching an autopsy though. I could probably stand to, but it would make me shudder.

Thank you!
Poor Nosy but as the saying says "Curiosity killed the cat and satisfaction brought him back" she will be sniffing around soon!
Nosy will not stop being curious, it can't help being that way. Besides, electricity is harmless to Fluffs, it just tickles.

Thank you!
lol, poor Nosy.
Have no fear, turns out electricity is harmless to Fluffs and they can hold a charge for several hours. Fluffs have some very useful attributes.

Thank you!
I have a picture of Nosy with sparks in its fluff going up to one of the humans and giving them one heck of a static shock now. *grins*
I expect it did, lol! Now EVERYONE's hair is standing on end. Nosy likes to share the fun ;)
AW poor Nozy, it wont be touching the zappy thing in a hurry again.

great drabble
Oh, I don't know, maybe Nosy liked it! It was an interesting, tickly sensation, a bit surprising but certainly not painful!

Thank you!
Aww bless, Poor Fluff.

I bet it doesn't learn from this incident though!
Electric shocks are no deterrent to Fluffs, it appears they're immune to harm from electricity. Aliens with weird biology, lol!

Thank you!
Nosy all bristling ...
Poor extra-fluffy Fluff!

Thank you!
