Title: Worms

Author: badly_knitted

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 331 – Worms at tw100

Summary: Tosh tells Ianto something shocking.

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

“Ianto,” said Tosh one day as they chatted over coffee, “did you know Jack’s got worms?”

Ianto almost choked, staring at her in shock.


“Yes, I found out yesterday, completely by accident. Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything; I just thought you probably knew. He said he usually doesn’t tell people because of how they react. No idea why it would bother anyone; I think they’re fascinating.”

“You find Jack’s worms fascinating?”

Tosh nodded. “He keeps them in this glass tank thingy.”

“It’s called a wormery, Tosh,” Jack said, joining them.

Ianto breathed a sigh of relief. “Oh, earthworms.”

TBC in 'Not-Earth Worms'


Eww! Hahaha, that's so cute! Earthworms!
Poor Ianto was thinking of something else, thanks to Tosh not realising her words could be taken the wrong way. He's happy Jack only has some earthworms, lol! Earthworms are fun =)

Thank you!
Me too! and My stomach was doing gagging sounds ......
Ooops, sorry, but I don't go in for nasty things so it was almost bound to be some sort of misunderstanding, Jack's worms are the nice kind. (As a gardener, I love worms, lol!)
Oh geez, I can see where Ianto would have freaked out just a little!
Poor boy! And Tosh had no idea that her poor choice of phrasing was rather disconcerting for him!

Thank you!
hahaha I can see how Ianto can take that the wrong way

great drabble.
Poor Ianto, and Tosh had no idea she was being completely misunderstood!

Thank you!
oh, god... my mind probably went to the same horrible places as Ianto's did. Eeeeeeeeewwwwwwwww

Thank goodness is just a wormery.
Tosh just didn't think, lol! even geniuses can put their foot in it.

Thank you!
LOL! I'm so relieved that Jack didn't have parasites but as earthworms creep me out, I wouldn't be too thrilled with those either! :-p
Ianto doesn't mind earthworms, they're better than the alternative. I like them, but I've spent most of my life rooting around in the garden so I'm used to them.

Thank you!

Oh dear, I think we just took a year off Ianto's life with that little disclosure! Dear sweet Tosh had no idea that would be so badly misconstrued!

It was such an innocent comment in her head, she had no idea Ianto would take it the wrong way.

Thank you.
Lol, brilliant!
Thank you.
*giggles* Jack's been pregnant, I can see why Ianto would think he had worms! ;)
Well, Tosh could have phrased her comment less ambiguously...

Thank you.
