Drabble: The Swarm

Title: The Swarm

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 322 – Feast at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Cardiff has its own Christmas invasion.

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

A/N: You didn’t really expect me to write about Christmas dinner, did you?







They hadn’t come through the Rift, which was odd but not unprecedented; they’d just appeared. Dozens of spiky, ping-pong ball sized creatures, with one thought on their tiny minds. ‘Feast! Feast! Feast!’



With Team Torchwood in pursuit, they swarmed through central Cardiff in the pre-dawn hours, devouring every scrap of tinsel in the municipal Christmas decorations and growing to the size of tennis balls. Then with a popping sound, one after another they vanished, leaving devastation behind.



Ianto surveyed the remains of the decorations.



“How do we explain that to Cardiff Council?”



Jack shrugged. “Think they’d believe it was Gremlins?”



The End


Comments

hahahahahaah they may believe that!
Cardiff Council have learned to accept whatever Torchwood tell them, because they're pretty sure they're better off not knowing the truth, lol!

Thank you!
Well, not to a human... LOL!

Thank you!
Nope they wouldn't believe gremlins for a second LOL

great drabble, what the team has to deal with eh?
They never know what will descend on Cardiff next! They still don't know what they were, but they're gone now and hopefully they won't come back *grins*

Thank you!
Well, it does look like they were fed after midnight... *laughs*
That they were! Thankfully, it didn't turn them into monsters.

Thank you!
Cardiff's so used to weird occurrences they'll believe anything Torchwood says! ;)
So true! Still, they have their pride, they want to at least offer a plausible explanation...

Thank you!
Probably not jack...
Just blame the students- they do all kinds of crazy things that defy reason.
Very true, students are the perfect scapegoats for everything!

Thank you!
