Drabble: Good Excuse

Title: Good Excuse

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen, Tosh, Ianto, mentions Jack.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 403: Fireworks at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: The team prepare to celebrate Independence Day.

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

A/N: A couple of days late for the actual day, but it's the thought that counts.







“This is ridiculous!” Owen complained. “Jack’s not even really American, so why do we have to celebrate Independence Day?”



“He claims it’s one of the traditions that was carried out into space when humans first started colonising other planets.” Tosh shrugged. “Of course, by his time, it wasn’t about America’s independence from Britain any more, but about established colonies declaring their independence from earth.”



“That’s true enough,” Ianto agreed. “Apparently it’s quite a big deal when a colony petitions for independence, but I suspect Jack mostly just wants an excuse to set off those fireworks left over from Bonfire Night.”



The End

Lol i hope they are silent fireworks, poor doggies of Cardiff.

Great drabble.
Very loud, as fireworks usually are, unfortunately. I'm sure he won't be the only 'American' celebrating though.

Thank you!

Who doesn't love an excuse for a party?

Me? I'm not really a party person. The team will have fun though, even grumpy Owen.

Thank you.
How well Ianto knows Jack. Hope Myf and Nosy aren't too upset by the bangs. My animals go spare
Myf will stay in her aerie, Nosy will enjoy the fireworks. it used be not like loud noises but it's grown used to them now and only gets scared if the rest of team show signs of alarm, lol!

Ianto knows Jack inside out ;)

Thank you!
