Summary: It’s Easter at Torchwood

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters, but I do own Nosy!

Jack and Ianto watched from the shadows in the night-darkened Hub as Nosy slunk about carrying a large basket. Every so often, it stopped, took something small and brightly wrapped from the basket and tucked it behind or under or inside one of the Hub’s meagre furnishings.

“What on earth is it doing?” whispered Jack.

“Hiding something that looks suspiciously like Easter Eggs, I think,” Ianto replied.

“How does it know so much about earth traditions? Come to that, where the hell did it even get Easter Eggs?”

“Online?” Ianto suggested. “As for how it knows what to do with them, it has been watching rather a lot of children’s television lately.”

“Huh,” said Jack. “So instead of the Easter Bunny, we have the Easter Fluff?”

“We’re Torchwood, we do things a little differently. Come on, let’s leave Nosy to it. It won’t be fair on the others tomorrow if we already know where all the eggs are hidden.”

“I suppose,” Jack agreed reluctantly. A thought suddenly crossed his mind. “Wait a minute, if Nosy bought the eggs online, how did it pay?”

“Probably charged them to the Torchwood credit card,” Ianto said with a yawn. No way was he going to tell Jack that he’d bought the eggs himself and explained to Nosy what to do with them. That would just take all the fun out of things!


Next morning, when everyone had arrived, (including Rhys, who often helped out at the Hub when he wasn’t at work), Ianto ushered them into the boardroom, where Nosy solemnly handed them each a small basket with a note attached.

When all was quiet and still last night

The Easter Fluff came slinking through

It hid some eggs quite out of sight

As gifts for every one of you.

Now it’s your job to find the all

Start searching high and low

But not too high as Fluffs aren’t tall

As all of you should know.

“An Easter Egg hunt? Seriously?” asked Owen, looking at Jack incredulously.

Jack shrugged. “Don’t blame me, it was the Easter Fluff’s idea.” He pointed at Nosy.

“Well, I think it’s a great idea!” Gwen said eagerly. I haven’t had a proper Easter Egg hunt since I was a kid!”

“What are you waiting for then?” Jack waved his own basket. “Let’s get started!”

As the team filed out of the boardroom, Ianto held Jack back.

“Just to be fair, we should hunt in the parts of the Hub where we didn’t see Nosy hiding the eggs.”

Jack pouted, but reluctantly agreed and followed Ianto to Nosy’s playroom to hunt among its toys.


Two hours later, everyone was sprawled on the sofas, sipping hot coffee and munching on chocolate. They’d each found at least 20 small eggs and they set aside a few from each of their baskets to give to Myfanwy later. After all, it was only fair that she got to join in the celebrations. Nosy lay across their feet, slurping quietly from its own coffee cup and delicately nibbling a crème egg that Ianto had unwrapped for it.

“That was fun,” Jack mumbled around a mouthful of chocolate. Then he added quietly to Ianto, “Do you think I should change the PIN number on the Torchwood credit card? We can’t have Nosy spending all our funds. Who knows what it might decide to buy next?”

Ianto hid a smile. “Don’t worry, Jack, I’ll handle it.”

Jack beamed. “Thanks, Ianto.”

“No problem.” After all, Jack never remembered the PIN anyway so he’d never notice it hadn’t changed!

The End

Yay more nosy!
This is just too cute! :-)
Thank you, glad you liked! Happy Easter!
Hee, Easter Fluff! Love it! :D
Who needs the Easter Bunny when you have a Fluff?

Thank you!
OMG! I just want to hug Nosy! Nosy hiding eggs is just too adorable!
Nosy does like to get into the spirit of the holidays! Hiding eggs is much easier than decorating Christmas trees.

Thank you!

(Is that a Dee icon? YUM! I've started looking for a few FAKE icons - just started reading the manga for the third time - it's no wonder I'm not getting any other books read...)
Torchwood as written for cbeebies. Such great fun. (I am not sure if you would take that as a compliment, but it really is meant as one!)
Nosy would approve, I'm quite sure it's been watching cbeebies every day! So much to learn from the TV.

Thank you, glad you enjoyed it.
Clever Nosy and Ianto and everyone had fun. Happy Easter.
Yep, they all had a good time and Nosy was so good at hiding the eggs, they were still finding the odd one a few weeks later, lol!

Thank you, and Happy Easter to you too!
LOL too cute.
Thank you, glad you enjoyed it!
Awesome Nosy fic! I love holiday fun with Nosy. And I really love Ianto making Jack think Nosy bought the supplies....and silly Jack believes him.
Ianto's so good at sounding completely serious, and they don't really know yet just what Nosy might be capable of, so Jack just accepts Ianto's comments as the truth, lol! I love making Jack that little bit dense, it's kinda nice to think he's willing to believe anything if it sounds remotely plausible, he's so open minded to possibilities!

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the holiday fun!
You're welcome! If you hadn't said anything, this wouldn't have been written, so thanks for the inspiration. It was a little rushed, and I was going to post just the first part, but I decided to write a bit more which was why it took longer to post.
That was sweet and lovely!!!
I loved it!!!
Hugs and kissitos, my dear J!!!
Thanks, Ani! *hugs back* lad you enjoyed it!
awwwwwww thank you for the fluffy fic!
Are those verses from you too????? really nice poetry included!
aha! poor Jack, he will never know what has hit him when he decided to hire a Ianto Jones!
awesome! and high five for Nosy!!!!
Thank you! And yes, I did write the verse too, I had to wrestle a bit to get the rhyming right, I'm out of practice, I used to write poetry quite a bit when I was younger.

Jack never knows whether Ianto is being serious or not, so he tends to take everything as the truth, lol. Better to be safe than sorry, after all. No one knows much about Fluffs, so maybe Nosy could learn to order things online...

(Better make that a low five for Nosy, lol)
Sneaky Ianto is Sneaky! Of course he taught Nosy how to hide the eggs. *laughs*

That was just so cute!
Jack is quite willing to believe otherwise; he can be quite gullible where Ianto and Nosy are concerned - Ianto can tell outrageous lies so convincingly, while Nosy's talents are still being discovered, so who knows? Jack might start giving Nosy an allowance...

Thank you, glad it gave you a laugh!
Awwww loved this J :)) Nosy and Ianto make a great Easter Bunny team
*fluffy hugs*
D xxx
Thanks, D, glad you liked it! *hugs back with extra fluff*

Battling a sore throat right now - hope you're doing better than I am! J xxx ♥
Brilliant. Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
An Easter Fluff? Now I've seen everything! LOL. I loved the image of all them relaxing and stuffing their faces with Nosy sprawled on their feet. <3

Happy (Belated) Easter! I hope you had a good one. :)
There is no better foot warmer than a fluff - and it can warm multiple feet at once!

Thank you, glad you enjoyed! (Nosy had to clean bits of chocolate out of its fluff afterwards - I think that's why it chose to lay on their feet!)

Had a quiet Easter as I seem to have caught a sore throat from somewhere and I'm not feeling very lively. I think I need Nosy to keep me warm.
Oh, how CUTE! That's just adorable.
Thank you! Glad you liked it =)
