Drabble: Lot Number 8

Title: Lot Number 8

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Tosh

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Items of alien origin turn up in the oddest places.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Lot Number 8’, 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.

The Rift had existed for many years, happily dropping strange bits and pieces on an unsuspecting Cardiff. Torchwood did their best to collect everything, but even so, there would always be the occasional item that slipped through unnoticed.

One of Ianto’s favourite tasks was to check the various places such items might come up for sale; today, he was at a local auction, having spotted a suspect lot in their latest catalogue.

Lot Number 8 was described as an old-fashioned flatiron, but was really an alien data-storage device. Ianto smiled and raised his paddle. Tosh was going to love it!

The End


Tech stuff and Tosh go together very well, she most certainly will love it.

Great drabble.
Thank you!

Ianto is always happy when he can return with something Tosh will like. I think he might stay at the auction for a while, see if he can bid on something from WWII for Jack, he likes getting Jack little treats too =)
I understand Ianto. What a nice way to look for artifacts!
It's one of his favourite parts of the job!

Thank you!
I love how Ianto is always thinking of others. Of course, it's an extra added perk that he gets to shop with Torchwood money.
There's that! With Torchwood picking up the tab, he can bid as high as he needs to in order to get alien artefacts off the streets.

Thank you!
Such a good friend, thinking of Tosh like that. *laughs*
Ianto likes to give Tosh little treats, she deserves them and when it's on Torchwood's tab, so much the better! He's doing his job and making his best friend happy =)

Thank you!
How deep does that Torchwood expense account go? I imagine they must to go eBay a lot, too! ;D
Jack's made some very astute investments to supplement their funding from the crown.

I've seen what's on ebay, there's a lot of suspiciously alien-looking stuff out there!

Thank you!
"on an unsuspecting Cardiff". Haha, poor Cardiff gets loaded with so much stuff that it doesn't know what to do with! xD
Nothing's as classy as an alien data-storage device that looks like a flatiron! Can I buy it? :D
Sorry, whatever you bid, Ianto's just gonna bid higher, it's his job and Torchwood can afford it!

Thank you!
Dammit, I was already looking forward to it! ;(
Yeah, Torchwood always gets all the cool toys! But Tosh will be happy!
Good old Ianto; Tosh knows Ianto will always take care of her tech needs!'
She loves it when Ianto tracks down interesting goodies.

Thank you!
Ianto is a really sweetie.
He is.

He has to buy anything alien he tracks down, to get it safely stored away in the archives, but he's always thinking of his friends when he comes across something one of them will like. It makes him happy to take back a treasure for Tosh especially.

Thank you!
Loved the ending. I could just picture ianto smiling as he thought of tosh whilst he kept bidding.
It's always fun for him to take something back from one of his auction trips that he knows will please one of his colleagues - especially something for Tosh or Jack.

Thank you!
