Drabble: Beware!

Title: Beware!

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: None really

Rating: G

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Cardiff’s not quite like other cities.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Beware’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 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’s not your average city.

Oh, it looks normal enough, pretty much like any other British city. Similar shops, pubs here and there, restaurants and nightclubs, offices and blocks of flats. There are even parks, and because it happens to be on the coast, a marina for those wealthy enough to own a boat.

Holidaymakers flock to the area because of the castle and other tourist attractions. By day it’s delightful.

But if you venture out after dark, beware. Keep to the busy areas, the brightly lit streets, and stay out of the alleyways.

Because the shadows here have teeth!

The End


Oooh, spooky! Great way to get geared up for Halloween! ;D
Oh Lord, I forgot Halloween! It's not all that far off. I was going to write a fic, but now I'm tied up with Through Time and Space I can't see that happening. Oh well, maybe next year!

Thank you!
Aww yes.

Lol never saw creepy stuff when I was out at night in Cardiff. Maybe I'll have to look better next year:)
Just beware of the alley Weevils - don't want you getting bitten!

Thank you!
Thank you!

Rats are bad enough, but weevils are far worse!
This is Cardiff perfectly described. Nice! :)
Thank you! I keep looking at all these saved prompts and every so often my brain will go *ping* I know what to write for that one! It's fun!
Oh I like this, brilliantly put.

great drabble.
Thank you! I rather like this one myself!
Love the last line

Wouldn't want to run into a weevil just because you wanted to take a shortcut!

Thank you!
I think even if it's subconsciously, the people of Cardiff know to stay out of the alleys at night. I know I never go near them. They give me the creeps.
Most people in big cities - or even small towns - stay out of alleys, but there are always those who want a short cut, or somewhere dark to make out. In Cardiff the residents are probably more sensible than the holidaymakers.

Thank you!
Right, so LJ needs a kudos button, for when I love something but can't think of ANYTHING constructive to say...

Loved this, by the way ;)
LOL! I'm quite happy to accept a smiley face on lieu of words!

Thank you!
Good to know :)
