Author: badly_knitted

Summary: Jack gives the team some very unwelcome news.

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

A/N: Prompt used is ‘Field Trip’






A collective groan echoed around the boardroom as Jack uttered the team’s most dreaded phrase.



“Right everybody, dress casually, pack for a couple days, we’re going on a field trip!”



“How can he sound so bloody cheerful?” groused Owen. “Doesn’t he remember what happened on our last field trip? We almost ended up on the menu!”



“Yes, Owen,” Ianto butted in, “I’m sure none of us need reminding about that, thank you.”



“I’m just sayin’.”



“Well don’t.” Tosh shuddered.



“Don’t look so worried; we’re not camping this time! It’s a minor incident involving stranded, peaceful aliens. What could go wrong?”

Famous last words anyone?

I'm sure relaxing is the last thing on any of their minds after their last trip out.

Do I seem to be using the word "last" an awful lot here?
Only three times, lol! And it's justified!

Jack should know better by now.

Thank you!
Oh wonder what could go wrong.

Lol another Drabble series.
Drabbles do that to me sometimes, lol!

Only a three-parter this time though, I think we'll probably get a new prompt next week so I want to get what I've written posted before it ends.

Thank you!
Oh lord, famous last words...
Ianto's rolling his eyes and thinking "Why does Jack do this to us? The field trip is bad enough, but now he's jinxed us!"

Thank you!
Those fateful words, WHAT COULD GO WRONG he should SO not have said that.

great drabble.
Jack really put his foot in it there, lol! He'll soon finf out that things ALWAYS go wrong when you say something like that!

Thank you!
"What could go wrong?" Oh no, that phrase never means anything good...
And even after all these years, Jack still hasn't learnbed there are some things you just don't say.

Thank you!
Famous last words...
Well, you know Jack, he doesn't hold with superstitions, lol!

Thank you!
Well done Jack - you know you've just jinxed it, right?
The reactions of the rest of the team should give him a clue, lol!

Thank you!
argh
very bad question!
Jack really wasn't thinking!

Thank you!
