Drabble: Pied Piper




Title: Pied Piper

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 259 – Queues at tw100

Spoilers: None.

Summary: For Torchwood, even the most mundane parts of daily life can sometimes take a step into the Twilight Zone.

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

A/N: I have no idea where this came from…




When Ianto found the small piece of alien tech while walking to work early one sunny morning, he thought nothing of it, just picked it up carefully, placed it in a bag and carried on walking.


Passing a bus stop he didn’t notice the small queue of people turning and following him. The same thing happened at the next bus queue. Everyone he passed immediately stopped what they were doing and followed him.


Reaching the Plass, he glanced back and stopped dead. The long line of people stopped too.


Ianto pulled out his phone.


“Jack? I’ve got a slight problem.”


The End


ROFL! Definitely something Jack would say!

Ianto's life is going to be somewhat difficult if half of Cardiff keeps following him around, especially as Torchwood is supposed to be secret!

Thank you!
Giggle snort. I think jacks gonna be jealous.
Hmmmm, jealous of Ianto because of his new fan club or jealous of the people following him? Lol!

Thank you =)

Lol! You're probably right! He'd be happy if he could be first in line behind Ianto with everyone following him!
LOL! Oh dear! Are we sure that's the tech that caused the queues? I'm thinking it might have happened anyway!

"A slight problem" indeed. I wonder what it's going to take to get them to leave? :-p

Maybe they need to turn the tech off or just put it down and everyone will just wander off again, lol!

Then again, if it's just enhanced Ianto's natural attractiveness, they may have a slightly bigger problem dispersing the crowd!

Thank you!
Are we sure that's the tech, and not Ianto's natural hotness? LOL!
Lol! Perhaps a bit of both? The tech has made everyone notice how attractive he is so now they just want to follow him? Who knows? Torchwood's Cardiff is a very strange place at the best of times!

Thank you!
I love it!
I know I wouldn't need alien tech as an excuse to follow Ianto around though!
Lol! I think most of us agree ;)

Ianto's a little bemused though.

Thank you!
oops! who has the longest queue of fans now??!!!!
loved it!
I think Ianto must have - I'm still wondering how far the line stretches...

As iantojjackh says, Jack is now jealous!

Thank you!
ha ha, can i join that queue, preferably right behind him
great job
We should all just surround him - you know, just to protect him from all those other people ;)

Maybe the device is like the one Bieber has, except it's on a lower setting so people follow politely instead of mobbing him, lol!

Thank you!
I think if Ianto had looked down he would have seen the problem. He picked up one of those defabricators that were used on Jack at Game Station.

Of course, if it was, then where did he get his phone from? ;)

Thank you!

Uh, you might not like the answer to that question.
Ianto is really picking up bad habits from Jack, lol! Of course, a phone is a lot safer than Jack's miniature blaster, but it must be difficult to answer when he's fully dressed!
Jack will not be happy if everyone starts to follow Ianto!
or he will have one of his phrases he has the secret!
Jack won't be happy at all - he wants to be the only person following Ianto! I think Jack might also be jealous because he's never had so many people following him!

Thank you!
I'm agree with you!
poor Jack ;-))))))))))))) LOL
I'm sure Ianto will make it up to him. Perhaps he'll let Jack follow him around all day ;)
I can see the picture!
LOL! =)
Thank you!
Hee hee great drabble.
Thank you! =)
