Drabble: Soggy Situation

Title: Soggy Situation

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Owen

Rating: PG

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Ianto is less than happy with Owen.

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

A/N: For angelsphonebox. Prompt at the end.

Ianto plucked duckweed from his hair, dropping it back into the village pond; not that it made much difference to his appearance. He was soaked from head to foot and suspected there might be tadpoles wriggling around inside his shirt. He glared at Owen, who was standing nearby, gloomily watching the SUV being pulled from the water.

“When I tell you to stop, I don’t mean slam your foot on the accelerator and try to drown us!” he snapped. “Next time, I’m driving. What the hell were you thinking?”

“There was a wasp in the car! I bloody hate wasps!”

The End

A/N: Prompt was "Next time, I'M Driving!"

Sequel: 'Waterlogged'


I'm scared of wasps too but at least it wasn't a giant alien one.
Yes, Owen should count his blessings. Wasps are annoying.

Thank you.

Donna Noble: When I say giant, I don't mean big, I mean flipping enormous!

That was a fun episode!
Im afraid im with Owen on that, I hate wasps.

Great drabble.
Most people do, they're not the most lovable of creatures!

Thank you!

Poor Donna already encountered a giant spider in "The Runaway Bride".

Wasp generally have a short life span. But there is always a wasp nest near my house!

Maybe they breed alot?
Wasps are like bees with a queen and lots of workers I think. I always have wasps coming into my bedroom in spring looking for a good nest site. I have to send them out again.

Donna did get an unfair share of the giant creepy crawlies, poor girl!

According to RTD giant alien insects can only be dealt with by drowning.
Well, it WOULD be a bit difficult to squash them with a rolled up newspaper ;)

Sorry, I'm tired and it's making me silly.

Unfortunately violence is the only way to get rid of them. I feel sorry for pest control.

That's okay. I've got a headache because I have to do my business assessments.:(

I'm with Owen on this. Was once in a car with a wasp. Driver pulled over and came to open door. Slowly and gently I held my arm out so it could fly away. Wretched thing stung me. For its pains it got swatted by driver. Wasps are nasty and aggresive. Poor Ianto hates being messy. Knowing him he'll make sure tadpoles are safe
I'm sure he will rescue all tadpoles and put them back where they belong.

Yes, wasps are aggressive and often sting without provocation, but I don't think riving into the pond helped, lol!

Thank you!
I know I just don't comment enough on you wonderful drabbles. You amaze me every time by putting so much story into only 100 words. I really enjoy reading them!
Thank you! At one time I thought I could never write a drabble, but I've done over 1000 for Torchwood now, and more for other fandoms. Just goes to show what you can do if you try!
