Drabble: Deca What?

Title: Deca What?

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Gwen, Jack, Ianto.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 390: Ten at tw100

Spoilers: Nada

Summary: The Rift brings another strange creature.

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

“Ugh! What is that?” Gwen recoiled with a disgusted expression on her face at the sight of the creature the Rift had seen fit to gift them with. “It looks like some kind of weird fuzzy spider!”

Ianto shook his head. “Can’t be. Spiders have eight legs but this thing’s got ten.”

“It’s a Decapod,” Jack said. “Completely harmless, they’re frugivores and they live in trees. You should see them when they eat fermenting fruit. They get drunk and start tripping over their own legs, bumping into each other, and falling out of the trees.”

“I’ll pass,” Gwen said, shuddering.

The End

A/N2: A frugivore, in case anyone doesn’t know, is a fruit-eater.


Yeah, I'm with Gwen on this. O.o Anything that resembles a spider...hell, no.
I'm scared of spiders, but these are not all that spidery really, at least not in my head, lol!

Thank you.
Iiiiiiiii think I'll take your word for it, lol!

You're quite welcome! :D
LOL! I think they're cute.
O.O You just keep thinkin' that...
Well, they're my invention, so I kinda have to like them, lol!
Haha, okay, fair enough. :D You can love your creepy, multilegged...thingies. I'm trying to remember if I have any equivalent creations in my own stories; I'm not sure if I do, or not.
My stories are full of a whole host of weird creatures - Nosy and Dizzy the Fluffs, Velvet the Shrodlet, Daisy the Possimpible, Bob, George, the alien butterfly, and a few creatures that remain nameless. Torchwood deserves to have some nice aliens drop in. =)
Very true. :)

And I'm suddenly hoping the Decapod isn't a belligerent drunk! My mind goes in such weird places, lol.

Unrelated: I just read your M*A*S*H fic a few minutes ago...wow, that was good. Some of the sentences sound exactly like things Hawkeye would say.
Oh, thank you! I'm glad you liked it! It's the only M*A*S*H piece I've written so fart, and I really should do more. I'd been watching repeats on an endless loop, two episodes a day on weekdays and four on Sundays, but even so I wasn't 100% sure of getting his voice right. Hawkeye was always my favourite chaacter =)

Decapods are merry drunks. they'd giggle a lot, I think. if they could giggle. And throw their legs around each other.
Well i think it sounds cute.

Great drabble.
Fluffy things are almost always cute ;)

Thank you!
\\sorry, but I'm an extreme arachnaphobe. Shall try noy to visualise them
I'm no fan either - take it from me, they really look nothing like, Gwen was just being xenophobic, lol!

Thank you"!

fuzzy spider with 10 legs ....
in fact with its legs she can eat more fruit!
you have not given its color: if it's neon pink or green tones to blend in with the trees, it should go better ...

NB: with your title, I thought we were going to have a story with decaffeinated coffee ...
and situatuin, gender Owen spitting his mouthful ... LOLr ...
I do like to tease!

Probably in shades of green and yellow, somethung pretty like that!

Thank you.
