Drabble: The Thing

Title: The Thing

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Owen, Tosh, Ianto, Thing.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 404: Not Found at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: A thing comes through the Rift.

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

It was about twenty centimetres long, six tall, bluish-grey and fuzzy, and Owen estimated it had somewhere around thirty pairs of legs. That was only a rough estimate, because the latest Rift Gift wouldn’t stand still long enough for a more accurate count. It rambled around inside the tank they’d put it in, treating the sides and lid as if they were extensions of the floor, there simply to be walked on.

“Any idea what it is?” Jack asked his team.

Tosh typed details into mainframe while Ianto checked the archives.

The results came back the same: match not found.

The End


LOL looks like they have another pet to feel until they can figure out what it is and where it came from.

great drabble
I have been reliably informed by Ianto that the new thing will be henceforth know as Fred. Also that Fred needs a bigger tank with some nice homely touches, although he has no idea just what Fred would consider 'homely.' Apparently I'm supposed to figure that part out for him. ;)

Thank you!
Of course clever Ianto will fgure out how to make Thing comfortable. Just hope it doesn't bite him
Ianto has told me he's calling it Fred. Owen says Fred is a vegetarian, and so far he seems friendly. I'm sure Ianto will have no trouble =)

Thank you.
