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’


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.
