A/N: 100 words first try! That’s two in a day!

“This is a bit ignominious,” Ianto said, lying on his back with his hands behind his head. “Thrown in prison on an alien planet for sneezing in public; haven’t they ever heard of allergies?”

“It’s not so much the sneezing they have a problem with,” Jack reassured him. “It’s who you sneezed on.”

“It was a big chicken, Jack!”

“A Murket actually,” Jack corrected him, “and they’re sacred here, believed to be the souls of the departed. You’re lucky we’re not natives; we’ll only be deported rather than executed.”

Ianto gave Jack a dirty look. “Well, that’s comforting to know.”

The End


Great drabble.
Thank you!
Hard to avoid breaking the law when you don't know it. They say ignorance is no defence, but I sometimes wonder.
Me too. If there are laws visitors might inadvertently break, then leaflets explaining them should be handed out, or signs posted. Most people can't read minds.

Thank you!
OMG! Luckily, they got out of it in one piece!
Well, you know execution won't stick with them anyway ;)

Thank you!
Hopefully they had a really big handkerchief...
That came into effect after Ianto's sneeze took him by surprise ;)

Thank you!

Sometimes you just can't buy luck like that.... o_O

Who would want to?

They'll break out soon though.

Thank you!
