A/N: For the prompt ‘A Merry Heatwave’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.
Cardiff was sweltering in an unexpected, un-seasonal heatwave. It was so hot even the Weevils were keeping to the sewers, where it was cooler. The Rift was still spitting out random objects though, meaning the team couldn’t stay below ground in the relative cool of the Hub all the time.
They were all hot, tired and irritable as they trooped back to the SUV lugging the latest piece of Rift debris, part of a spaceship navigation system. It weighed a ton.
“When we get back, I’m taking a long, cold shower,” Ianto muttered.
Maybe things were looking up!
