Drabble: Critters

Title: Critters

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, mentions Jack.

Rating: PG

Written For: Challenge 340: Spiders at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: A vicious alien species is menacing Cardiff; Ianto Jones to the rescue!

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

Jack called them spiders because they had eight legs and scuttled. Ianto was of the opinion that they were more like mobile tennis balls with teeth. So he was on a mission, a one-man crusade to rid Cardiff of the alien menace, and he’d found the perfect weapon for the job.

Stalking through the pre-dawn mist of Bute Park, he spun around at the sound of scuttling legs and swung his hockey stick. It made a very satisfying thwack as it struck the vicious little bugger, flattening it. Score! That one would never again take a bite out of anyone!

The End


Ha ha, they never did explain the hockey stick! ;)

Which is one of the reasons I love it, it's just such a crazy thing. And I adore the expression on Ianto's face when he's wielding it *grins*

Thank you!
Jack's "what the?" expression is pretty priceless too! :)
Yeah *grins* You think you know someone and then they get ahold of a hockey stick...
aha and here comes the hockey stick again!
It's a very useful weapon in the right hands!

Thank you!
URG better Ianto than me doing that, great drabble
Ianto Jones, defending the spider-haters of Cardiff since 2005... He's good with that hockey stick!

Thank you!
Yes! I love this use of the hockey stick. Although I bet he and Jack don't use it like they used to afterward. :)
I think Ianto will clean it thoroughly before they use it for fun again.

Did you ever read this one?


Thank you!
As a total arachnaphobic, all I say id, Brave Ianto
He's a true hero!

I'm not fond of big spiders, so I'll apologise in advance for all the other spider drabbles to come. Needless to say, I didn't choose the prompt.

Thank you!
Oh great, I shall look forward to more. Can't stand the things in the flesh, or even look at pictures, But I can at least read, and I can have the fun of picturing Ianto, and maybe also Jack later.
Hope you'll enjoy what I've done to Jack then... ;)
I knew that hockey stick was good for something! ;)
Ianto is good at finding practical uses for things ;)

Thank you!
Anyone for a game of spider hockey? :-)
They're b=not very good as balls, they just go SQUISH!

Thank you!
