Drabble: Workplace Hazard

Title: Workplace Hazard
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Team Torchwood, Owen.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 431: Size at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: In Torchwood, size is a variable, not a constant.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Every workplace has its share of hazards, but Torchwood has more than most. Where else can you find information on what to do if you accidentally end the day a different size than you were when you arrived for work?

It’s a problem all Torchwood agents encounter occasionally, getting shrunk or stretched to varying degrees, or even inflated several sizes so nothing they own fits. On one occasion Owen was temporarily rendered so thin his clothes fell off in the middle of the Hub. He took the subsequent jokes surprisingly well.

In Torchwood, you quickly learn normal rules don’t apply.

The End


Size really does matter in Torchwood.

Owen has the opposite problem to Jack now?
LOL! I think they probably managed to reverse what happened to Owen, since it was caused by lien tech rather than bad eating habits.

Thank you!
Great drabble.
Thank you!

It's so true!

It's the basis of all things Torchwood! Check your disbelief at the door.

Thank you!
And the shrinking becomes a normal hazard... poor Owen, I guess *lol* :)
I'm sure they managed to restore him to normal. After they stopped laughing at stick-figure Owen ;)

Thank you!
