Drabble: Mind Your Language

Title: Mind Your Language
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, Gwen, Clangers.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 432: Tone at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Gwen needs to work on her alien languages.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.





Communicating with the latest aliens to accidentally wind up in Cardiff was proving tricky. The small, pink beings were friendly enough, but their language consisted of whistling in different tones. Gwen tried whistling back, but whatever she ‘said’ seemed to offend them. The two big ones turned bright purple, whistling shrilly and covering the ears of their little ones.


Thankfully, Ianto arrived and took charge. Before long, the visitors were on their way to their intended destination.


“I’d expect that from Jack, but not you, Gwen.”


“What did I do?”


“You said you wanted to lick them all over.”


“EW!”



The End

Trust Gwen,even when she doesn't know what she's 'saying' she says the wrong thing
Heehee! Gwen can put her foot in her mouth in any language without even trying!

Thank you!
LOL oh my goodness Gwen hahah.

Great drabble
When she puts her foot in her mouth, she makes a proper job of it ;)

Thank you!

In fairness, one can't be fully conversant in every language. Not everyone is a walking encyclopaedia like Ianto.

True, but there are times Gwen really should keep her mouth shut and not even try. She's less likely to offend someone that way.

Thank you!
