Drabble: In The Marshes

Title: In The Marshes
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Owen, Team.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 429: Deep at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: The Rift sometimes drops things in very inconvenient places.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

It’s just after dawn and Torchwood are searching the marshes for something the Rift has inconveniently dropped there. They have no real idea what they’re looking for, so they’re all sloshing about in their wellies, stick in one hand, scanner in the other, wishing they had more than two hands each. The reeds are sharp, and keep getting in the way.

They’re startled by a deep booming sound, reverberating through the still air, and Owen nearly drops his scanner trying to draw his gun.

Ianto snorts. “Relax, Owen, it’s just a Bittern.”

Owen glares at the bird. “I knew that.”

The End


I guess you can never be too careful...
Torchwood can be very dangerous, but sometimes a Bittern is just a Bittern.

Thank you!
Lol well you cant blame Ianto for being jumpy working for torchwood.

great drabble/
Owen's the jumpy one - he never did like being out of the city. Ianto's used to it.

Thank you.
A Bittern can sound scary if you don't know what it is, like a screaming fox. Of course Ianto does know Wonder if Owen does know, or if he's just trying to save face
Owen didn't have a clue, he doesn't venture out of the city unless he has to.

I like bitterns =)

We haven't had foxes around here for a few years. Their screaming is quite eerie, like a woman screaming. Which is fair since I believe it's the vixens who scream.

Thank you.

Lol, real life is sometimes scarier than anything the rift can throw at them!

Weird sounds are always scary!

Thank you.
