2 Drabbles: The Way To A Weevil's Heart & A Weevil In Love

I decided to put both of these drabbles in the same post because they start more or less the same, but then go in different directions. I couldn't decide which to write so in the end, I just did both. Hope you like them!

Title: The Way To A Weevil’s Heart & A Weevil In Love

Author:  badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Owen, Ianto, Janet

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 260 – Odd Couples at tw100

Spoilers: None.

Summary: Janet’s in love….

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

A/N: Two similar drabbles, because I couldn’t decide which way I wanted to go with it. If in doubt, write both!

The Way To A Weevil's Heart

“I don’t get it. We went to so much trouble finding a suitable mate for Janet and they can’t stand each other! What’s the problem? They’re both weevils and Brad is quite the looker by weevil standards.” Jack couldn’t conceal his exasperation.

“To be fair, it’s not Brad’s fault,” Owen said wearily. “He fancies Janet, but she’s not interested. Her heart’s already taken.”

Just then, Ianto wandered in carrying several steaming mugs. “Coffee?”

Janet moaned softly, yearning towards the Welshman.

“Oh, you have gotta be kidding me!” Jack sounded shocked.

“Nope! She’s smitten.”

Ianto shrugged. “She really likes my coffee!”

The End

A Weevil In Love

“I don’t get it. We went to all that trouble finding Janet a mate and they can’t stand each other! What’s the problem? They’re both weevils and Brad is quite the looker by weevil standards.” Jack couldn’t conceal his exasperation.

“To be fair, it’s not Brad’s fault,” Ianto explained. “He fancies Janet, but she doesn’t want him. Her heart belongs to someone else.”

Owen ambled in. “So, how are the lovebirds getting along?”

“They’re not,” Jack grumbled. “Ianto thinks Janet loves someone else.”

“Like who?” Owen sounded puzzled.

Hearing Owen’s voice, Janet purred seductively.

“Does that answer your question, Owen?”

The End


LOL! I love them both!!! How can Brad compare to the charms of Ianto. As for Owen, that's a puzzlement!
Lol! I know! But a Weevil wants what a Weevil wants... Thank you!

I'm mad at LJ again - all that struggle to get two cuts to work in one entry, but I can't get a separate URL for each drabble, which is gonna screw up my master list =(
Of course Janet would be smitten with Ianto! As for Owen, who wouldn't want to be Queen of the Weevils? LOL!
Janet is fickle! I think she wants Ianto's coffee, but Owen's body because he's similar to a weevil, just a bit better looking, lol!

Thank you =)
Yeah, poor Owen - he's Janet's ideal man, sets her little Weevil heart all a flutter! =P (She only wants Ianto for his coffee, which is probably a good thing as Jack doesn't want to be jealous of a Weevil!)

Thank you =)
Hehe fantastic!
Love them both.
I think I prefer the first one, because to me it seems to flow slightly better.
But Janet as weevil queen is just brilliant! :-)
Thank you!

I still can't decide which idea I like best, though there's something to be said for a caffeine-addicted Weevil! I wonder if caffeine works differently on Weevils... maybe it makes them mellow!
LOL! I can easily see both being true at one time or another. After all, it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind!

Ha, ha--"Brad" and "Janet"! Good one! I bet that was Jack's doing. He seems like a "Rocky Horror" fan. No wait, I think he was claiming he was the inspiration for the movie! My bad.
Lol! Yes, Janet is fickle with her affections - she only wants Ianto when he has coffee with him, she finds Owen more Weevily attractive!

Brad is not really my idea, I've seen the name used before for male Weevils, it seems pretty much accepted that it's a Rocky Horror thing, so it seems to have become a kind of fanfic tradition. I can definitely picture Jack as the inspiration for the movie!
I must say that Janet ended being quite intelligent when choosing mates: a Coffee King and the King of weevils! she really likes royalty!

awesome, both of them!
Lol! Yes, Janet has become thoroughly spoiled, she has much more refined tastes now, ordinary Weevils are no longer good enough for her, she's set her sights higher. After all, these humans are nice to look at and even Owen has better manners than a Weevil!

Thank you =D
Hee hee loved them both.
Thank you! =)

Janet's not a girl willing to dsettle for a Weevil when she has better looking prospects! Lol!
Those are fantasic! Who would or could compae to Ianto and his coffee. Owen?????
Janet has good taste! As for Owen, well, he looks a bit Weevilish and Janet did take his body for a test drive when Owen accidentally swapped bodies with her, lol!

Thank you, glad you liked them!
Alternate endings! I like it. Janet/Owen could be such an interesting, seriously messed up dynamic.
Thank you!

I ship Janet/Owen, I think it could work! Lol!
Owen/Janet a forbidden love story.
It's tragic, they're obviously made for each other ;)
