Drabble: Mystery Explained – Sequel to ‘Jack’s Request’

Title: Mystery Explained – Sequel to ‘Jack’s Request’

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Jack, Tosh, Team mentioned.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 357: Dinosaur at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack explains what caused the skeleton to go on the rampage.

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





The dinosaur nets worked beautifully, capturing the rogue skeleton quite handily. Once it was safely restrained, Ianto turned to Jack.


“Okay, you said you’d explain once we caught it, so spill!”


Grinning, Jack approached their captive, plucking a small, previously unnoticed object from one of its legs.


“What’s that? Tosh asked.


“They’re used for moving heavy objects easily; basically, they make the object move itself. But they’re not designed for use on previously living things because they make them think they’re alive again.”


“Nifty,” Ianto said, then sighed. “Shame we can’t use it to return the dinosaur to the museum.”


The End
