Going in search of Ianto one boring afternoon, Jack found his lover down in the showers with the Kneeble colony, letting them splash around in the water, getting clean by grooming each other, and occasionally climbing the walls.

“Lively bunch, aren’t they,” Ianto grinned, watching their antics.

“Very,” Jack agreed as a Kneeble scampered over on its short little legs and scrambled up him to be petted. “It’s amazing how healthy they are on a diet of lichen and slime.”

“To each their own,” Ianto shrugged. “To a Kneeble, slime is the epitome of fine dining.”

“Rather them than me.”

The End


My husband has his degree in microbiology with a specialization in fungus. You'd be surprised how tasty some of that stuff can be!

Great job!
Well, mushrooms are fungus and a lot of those are very tasty. And some are poisonous of course... Can't have everything!

Thank you!

Yeah - we eat oysters, and truffles, and salmon roe, and even chicken eggs, and if you think too closely about it they can be considered quite disgusting :)
Well, I wouldn't eat oysters and I loathe roe of any kind, so... I'd still draw the line at slime anyway, on principle...

Thank you!
rather them than me too.

great drabble.
Must admit I don't find the idea of eating slime at all appealing either...

Thank you!
it must be a pretty sight and very funny!
a relaxing moment in a difficult world full of unexpected!
Kneebles are just fun to be around. they're such happy little creatures.

Thank you.
