Title: Trash Or Treasure?

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto, Nosy

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 285 – One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Trash or Treasure? It depends on your perspective.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Late one night, Ianto was busy collecting rubbish from around the Hub before switching everything to night mode.

Retrieving a mug from Owen’s messy desk, he headed for the kitchen, returning to find Nosy rummaging in the bag of rubbish.

“Nosy, what are you doing? Get out of there!”

Nosy backed out of the bag, something unidentifiable clutched in its mouth, and slithered towards its play area. Curious, Ianto followed, watching as Nosy carefully placed its rescued object on a narrow ledge, beside an array of similar objects.

Bottle caps.

Ianto smiled.

One man’s trash was treasure to a Fluff!

The End

Actually, bottle caps are a fun thing to collect. Just hope Nosy doesn't swallow any! ;)
Nosy will be careful, it just likes them because they're shiny and pretty!

Thank you.
awwww and now Nosy is starting her own collection!
Nosy likes shiny things, and likes making its own area of the Hub pretty!

Thank you!

Yeah ! My husband's Aunt collects bottle caps too. Maybe we should introduce Nosy to her, so they could share.
Now Ianto knows what Christmas present to offer to Nosy : a beautiful caps album ;).
Thanks for the fluff, it was really welcome.
LOL! Thankyou, glad you liked it!

Nosy likes making its own area of the Hub pretty. I think everyone will have to leave their bottle caps lying around now to keep Nosy from rummaging in the bins!
Looks like even Fluffs have collections. :)
Fluffs like pretty things, just as humans do. At least bottle caps are a reasonably normal thing to collect, Nosy might have decided it liked Owen's gum wrappers.

Thank you!

Cute! I love these Nosy stories. Sorry I am so behind. I AM still breathing. lol!

love Deb. :)
Glad to hear it! *hugs*

Thank you, Nosy is attracted to shiny things, lol!

Love, J xx
Hey, I collected those as a kid! Good choice, Nosy. :)

*Hugs the Fluff*
*Nosy hugs back*

Bottle caps are shiny and pretty, Nosy doesn't get why Ianto threw that one in the rubbish but figures it was a mistake and managed to rescue it anyway! Cue one very happy Fluff!

Thank you.
If it's sparkly and pretty, Nosy likes it! Ianto will have to make sure bottle caps aren't thrown in the rubbish so that Nosy doesn't keep rummaging in the bins, lol!

Thank you!
Adorable. I love the idea of bottle caps lined up. :D
Aliens have different ideas about what's pretty and decorative, lol!

Thank you!
Aww, CUTE!! I can just see Nosy sorting and lining up it's collection...
Laying them out in different patterns, sorting them by colour... Hours of fun for a Fluff! Each one it finds is a small treasure.

Thank you!
Aww Nosy collects bottle caps how cute.

great drabble.
Thank you!

I don't think it started out as collecting as such, Nosy just saw one, thought it was pretty and claimed it. Of course, then it saw another one and had to have that too... Before you know it, Nosy has a collection!
Yay, another Nosy fic :-)
Very cute :-)
Thank you! Nosy's an expert on cute =)

Don't know if I'll manage another drabble for the prompt though, my brain's not cooperating.
Nosy can have big fun with bottle caps.
Yes, it's an exciting new thing to discover! So many clever things can be done with bottle caps =)

Thank you!
Aww, so cute!
Thank you! I think Nosy has an excess of Cute genes, lol! It can't help being cute. If I tried to write it as a slavering monster, it would still be cute.
aww, even aliens need hobbies! maybe ianto could hide other items from the set around the hub on quiet days for him
They do! I think in future Ianto will tell the rest of the team to just leave their bottle caps lying around instead of throwing them away so Nosy doesn't keep digging in the rubbish, lol! It's a good idea for everyone to bring interesting bottle caps with them and hide them for Nosy to find!

Thank you!
Aw, that's cute. You give Nosy a whole personality just in three sentences! Well done, you!

Also, I like the serentiy of the image: Ianto alone in the hub, late at night, cleaning up--it has a calm quality that you manage to capture quite beautifully.
*blushes* Thank you!

Nosy lives, I swear, it inhabits my brain and definitely has a personality. It embodies the word 'cute' lol!

I think Ianto would like the peace and tranquilty after the noisy team members (Owen and Gwen) have left and the only sound is Jack rustling paperwork in his office, maybe Tosh tapping computer keys, and the soft sound of Nosy slithering about. It would be his time to unwind, doing simple, mindless tasks like tidying up and washing mugs, letting go of the stress of the day and looking forward to some fun with Jack!
