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
Characters: Jack, Owen, Ianto, Janet
Written For: Challenge 260 – Odd Couples at tw100
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!”
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?”
