A/N: The prequel to my drabbles ‘Night Feeds’ and ‘Feeding Time’

It all happened in a flash – literally.

Tosh was examining a piece of alien tech they’d retrieved. Owen dodged to avoid stepping on Nosy and tripped over his chair, knocking the tech to the floor.

A blinding flash of white light shot upwards, there was a startled squawk and suddenly Myfanwy was on the ground, glowing brightly and visibly shrinking.

Ianto thought later that if she had simply shrunk it wouldn’t have been too bad, but when the glow faded instead of an adult pteranodon there sat a small, newly hatched, hungry chick, convinced he and Jack were its parents.

Continued in ‘Night Feeds’


Ah ha! So that's what happened. Basically, it's Nosy's fault...

And I think Ianto is so the Mom in this circumstance, I really do. LOL!
Like anyone is going to blame Nosy - it was just minding its own business, Owen should have been watching where he was going, lol!

Poor Ianto, mom by default.

Thank you!

Wrote this one this morning and I have a list of drabbles to write, including another butterfly one, and something to round up the chewing gum saga... Just what DOES Nosy do with the gum it's stuck chewing? Poor Fluff, it's getting tired. Might write that from Nosy's POV.
oh poor Myfanwy! At least she has Jack and Ianto as Mum and Dad.
On the bright side, she gets to grow up all over again and she'll be even more devoted to her 'parents'. All creatures are much easier to teach when they're young and she'll live much longer now too.
Hehe, at least she saw Ianto and Jack first and imprinted on them. Imagine how disastrous it would have been if she had seen Owen and Nosy first!
*almost chokes* Owen and Nosy as Myf's parents... the poor thing would have really serious identity issues!

I just hope Jack and Ianto don't encounter problems teaching her to fly!

Thank you =)
this was a well needed prequel!

BTW, I love your butterfly series and I will start commenting from now on .....
Thank you! Glad you liked it!

I've linked all the Butterfly drabbles in sequence today so they can be read more easily. I have the next one written, but I want to get a bit ahead and I have some other drabbles to post as well. I'm overrun with drabble-bunnies - they're really small but very energetic and they breed even faster than the usual kind of plot bunny, lol!
Should have known Owen would be involved! Clumsy oaf needs to look where he's going. ;)

He really does! And it's always Owen's fault (when it isn't Gwen's!)

Thank you!
Owen should have to do the baby pter feeding for being such a Klutz.
While the night feeds are necessary, I think everyone will have to take their turn - Owen will just have more turns than anyone else, lol!

Thank you.
Just another day at Torchwood, as I like to say! LOL
Yep! They should be used to this kind of thing by now....

Thank you!
Still think a baby Myfanwy is cute but OMW demanding as anything, great story. Owen and Nosy should be more careful.
Nosy was just minding its own business, Owen was the one not looking where he was going, lol!

Mini-Myf is a very demanding baby, but they love her anyway!

Thank you!
Aww a baby Myfanwy would be so cute. And Ianto could still train her to poop over Owen.
*snort* I have a feeling THAT will happen without any need for training, lol!

Mini-Myf is indeed cute, but also very loud and demanding!

Thank you!
Love the imagery
Thank you, it was fun working out what happened!
Ah ha! What an unfortunate accident, but such a cute result. :)
It's Torchwood, these things happen, I'm sure there's a whole chapter in the handbook about it ;)

Yeah, Mini-Myf is cute, but LOUD and very demanding when she's hungry, which is most of the time!

Thank you.

in a sense, Myfanwy baby, this solves the problem of the butterfly. It may help to learn to fly.
Oooh, that's an interesting idea! I hadn't thought of that! Thank you =)
Nappy duty anyone?
That's Owen's job! It's his fault, after all!

Thank you.
Nicely done and off to read the other two stories associated with this.

Jack and Ianto as parents would be interesting I think even if it is a pteradon.

Well done. :))
Thank you!

I actually makes them parents of a baby in one fic, but for now they can get plenty of practice with baby Myf!
