Drabble: Ear, Ear

Title: Ear, Ear

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen, Ianto, Jack

Rating: PG

Written For: Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Owen really shouldn’t play with dead things.

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

A/N: Prompt at the end. This is what happens when I try writing drabbles late at night – my brain slips over to the Twilight Zone. Apologies in advance.

The creature had been D.O.A. and Jack had naturally wanted to know why; the species wasn’t in Torchwood’s database, so presumably this was the first of its kind to fall through the Rift.

Owen hadn’t taken long to determine cause of death; the poor thing simply hadn’t been able to breathe earth’s atmosphere. Instructed to collect data before cremating it, he’d soon grown bored and started mucking about, leading to a rather awkward situation.

The alien’s ear was stuck to Owen’s forehead and wouldn’t come off.

“Why does this shit always happen to me?” he whined.

Ianto just smirked.


The End

A/N2: Title used was ‘Karma’


I would think by now that Owen would know better but again, this is Torchwood, where the unusual and downright weird stuff will happen. It couldn't have gotten stuck in a better place! :D
Owen is now all ears!

I'm a firm believer in Owen having a very grotesque and juvenile sense of humour, as befits someone who never seems to have matured beyond the Medical Student phase. On the other hand, he's now discovered something interesting about the alien's physiology - it's very sticky!

Thank you!
Haha, what an awkward situation! That's what I call a typical Torchwood-problem xD
Owen should know better, but he never learns, lol!

Thank you!
LOL! This makes me think of all the puns and such Ianto could come up with until the ear finally decides it doesn't like Owen anymore..
Yeah, starting with "You're all ears today, Owen"

Ianto is going to have a ball until that ear comes off - Owen can't even leave the Hub! Can you imagine him trying to go out on the pull?

Thank you!
Maybe with an extra ear, he will pay more attention to what people, let's say Ianto, always repeats about being careful with anything that comes through the Rift.
We can hope! But knowing Owen, it will go in one ear and out both the others...

Thank you!
We SO need a picture of that LOL.

Great drabble.
*grins* Owen is eary!

Thank you!
Lol sounds like Owen has hardly left his med school days where the students are known for their bizarre practical 'jokes'.
That's the way I see Owen - the eternal medical student with the grotesque sense of humour, lol!

Thank you!
A friend of a friend once told us a story about someone in her anatomy class getting expelled from university.
Working in small groups they were given corpses - people who had donated their bodies to medical science - to train with. And in one class when they were dissecting the bodies to look at the organs of the digestive system, some guy started skipping with the large intestine that they just had removed!
I'm not sure Owen would skip, but that'sd the sort of behaviour I expect from him, lol! Really though, I'm not surprised he got expelled for that.
Karma can be a bitch!

"Did you hear me, Owen? Are you listening to me, Owen?"

Only to Owen!
He's got enough ears, he should be able to hear, lol!

Owen does it to himself. He never seems to learn!

Don't play with the corpses, Owen. They don't like it.

Thank you!
Too bad Torchwood is a secret organization. That is a picture made for Twitter or Instagram! *giggles*

Maybe Ianto will post it anyway and call it a practical joke he played on a friend using an oddly shaped mushroom and some glue...

Thank you!
Hehe, yup that is karma!
If he wasn't messing around it wouldn't have happened!

I'm not a Treky but this reminds me of an old Star Trek joke:
How many ears has Mr Spock got?
Three - the right ear, the left ear, and the final frontier!
ROFL! I'm a classic trekkie and a Spock fan, I grew up watching Star Trek and Doctor Who, happy memories =)

Oh yes, anmd Owen somehow never learns - much around with your autopsy subjects and SOMETHING will inevitably happen that you'll wish hadn't.

Thank you!
Owen is worse than Jack sometimes! Thank you!
