Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Gwen, Owen, mentions Tosh and Ianto.

Rating: PG

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: The team aren’t happy about having to re-do their reports.

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

“I can’t believe Ianto’s correcting our reports and making us re-write them!” Jack whined to the rest of his team as they sat around the boardroom table, busily writing.

“I know!” said Gwen. “He gave me three out of ten for mine.”

“Hah!” Jack was jubilant. “I got five out of ten! What about you, Owen?”

“I got a two,” the medic muttered gloomily.

“So why isn’t Tosh here?” Gwen asked.

“She’s teacher’s pet. Teaboy gave her full marks. And a gold star.” Owen pushed his chair back and stood.

“Where are you going?”

“To hide his fucking red pen!”

The End


OMG I love ❤ this one.I can picture some of my students....
LOL! The power of the red pen cannot be underestimated!

Thank you.
Of course Tosh is "teacher's pet". She is the brains of Torchwood after all...
I really don't know why the others are so surprised, lol!

Thank you!

Revenge for stealing all his blue pens. A punishment that befits the crime!

Definitely a punishment.

Thank you!
LOL Ianto treats them like kids. but I guess sometimes they need it.

great drabble.
Well, if they behave like kids, they'll get treated like kids.

Thank you!
Yeah, Owen...like Ianto doesn't have at least a dozen red pens, hid in various places around the Hub! That's only going to get you into more trouble, and Ianto doesn't fight fair.
Owen is simply proving Ianto's point for him, lol!

Thank you!

Dear Owen, that is only going to make him more mad at you - have you thought it through far enough?
It's doubtful; Owen just reacts. Ianto has lots of red pens anyway.

Thank you.
Obviously Tosh knows how to spell and punctuate, and she wouldn't expect Ianto to do her work for her.
I'm sure the others know too, but are just too lazy to do it properly. (Rather like me in emails. Capital letters and the like are too much effort!)
Don't worry Owen - I'm sure Ianto has plenty of backup red pens!
Owen is an idiot to think there would be just one pen. Ianto has boxes full.

Jack does try, sort of, but he's easily distracted. Gwen and Owen are just lazy.

Thank you.
Eeep, I'd hate to know where he intends to hide it!
Wouldn't matter, Ianto would just get out a fresh one.

Thank you!
oh! oh Owen should be avoided: there will be a punishment if it hides the pen Ianto.
And Ianto must have a reserve.
Ianto has lots of red pens, Owen is out of luck.

Thank you!
