Title: Jumping The Gun

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen, Jack, Ianto, Team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 272 – Jump The Gun at tw100

Spoilers: None at all.

Summary: Owen lands himself in a predicament…

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




Crashes and clatters sounded from the autopsy bay, accompanied by increasingly girly screams of “Get it off! GET IT OFF!” from Owen.


Ambling over to see what was happening, the team were treated to the unusual sight of Owen flailing about with the tentacled creature they’d found earlier wrapped firmly around his head.


After several minutes, Jack managed to prise the poor creature off, leaving Owen slumped on the floor, gasping for breath.


“I know I’m not the medical expert here, but I thought you were supposed to wait until something was dead before performing an autopsy,” Ianto commented mildly.


The End


Yeah, I can see how tentacle guy would be a bit miffed about that... now I want to get out the plasticine and put some tentacles around my "Owen" figure... good thing is, you could not see his face at all LOL

I might just do that. Or do you want to do it?

(you know, I even bought myself some tiny test tubes and medicine bottles, to be able to decorate the autopsy room once I have made that Owen figure. I migh rush things a bit forward, in that case - oh, you are giving me ideas, lady! Bad at this time of the evening. Very bad indeed. Now I have to wait till tomorrow for daylight)
You go ahead - I don't have an Owen stand-in (though I have just bought a herd of Weevils so my boys can go Weevil hunting - and another Jack because he was part of the package deal, lol!)

I plan to do a similar thing with Jack and Ianto and a tentacled thing, but I'd love to see my drabble scene come to life!

Tentacled guy wasn't seriously hurt, he soon recovered and I believe he set up home in the rift pool, though he kept well away from Owen.

I'm waiting for good weather before I do anything more elaborate than the occasional picture. I also need some more props...

Ha ha ha ha ha. Ianto is right Owen. Did Ianto take pictures so Owen can relive the event?
I'm sure the CCTV took care of pictures - Tosh is saving the footage to disc.

Owen was in a hurry, he wanted to leave work early. I think he's planning something for Valentine's Day. Shhh, though, don't tell Tosh!

Thank you.
Thank you, glad you found it amusing!

I wanted to make up for last week's depressing drabble, it was uncharacteristically gloomy so I needed something more cheerful this week!
Leave it to Owen? Poor tentacled creature is probably scared out of it's life!
Yeah, Owen was in a hurry to finish work. Poor tentacled creature! Thankfully it wasn't seriously damaged and will have a long and happy life in the rift pool. It'll keep well clear of Owen in future though!

Thank you!
Hehe! Oh, poor Owen. No, scrap that - poor little tentacled creature!!!
Yeah, mustn't feel too sorry for Owen, it was his own fault! Tentacled creature made a full recovery, with some tlc from Ianto. Now it lives in the rift pool, making rude gestures at Owen.

Thank you.
ROFL! What a mental image. Silly Owen.
Very silly Owen! No tentacled creatures were harmed in the writing of this fic, lol!

dieastra is planning an action figure re-enactment, so look out for that at some point!

Thank you.
hahahahah and I am sure that that CCTV is going to be teasing material for long!
Oh yes, you can be sure of that! Tosh is saving it to disc, it's so entertaining! Owen will be much more careful in future.

Thank you!
Ianto has always the very innocent sentence and but true: LOL.
I'm glad to know that the poor creature is safe and has private pool!
Ianto will take good care of it.
Owen doesn't usually make such careless mistakes, but Ianto thought it best to remind him anyway.

The creature is very happy now, Ianto takes very good care of it and Jack helps. It likes them, but it's not fond of Owen!

Thank you.
Hehe love it!
Thank you! I have a fondness for tentacled things. (It was fine after some tlc from Ianto.)
I so love Ianto's sarcastic humor!
Yeah, he loves to point out what should be obvious to Owen! Sly digs at Owen are one of Ianto's chief delights =)

Thank you!
Oh that would have been a sight, hee hee poor owen.
Thank you!

Yeah, it would be quite a sight - and if dieastra can create an Owen figure, we might well get to see it!
Great drabble
Thank you, glad you enjoyed it.
