Drabble: Insulted

Title: Insulted
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ianto, alien.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 472: Primitive at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: The latest arrival through the Rift isn’t impressed with earth.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

“This is rather primitive, isn’t it?” the alien asked disparagingly. Ianto gritted his teeth; he’d heard nothing but thinly veiled insults since the being had arrived in Cardiff having been snatched up by the Rift. Clearly he thought he was slumming on this backwater planet known by its inhabitants as ‘Earth’.

“You should consider yourself lucky,” he snapped, finally running out of patience. “A few years ago, you would’ve been taken prisoner, experimented on, and then dissected. I think you’ll find we’re much more civilised these days.”

The alien’s pale skin went paler still, but there were no more insults.

The End


Yes, sometimes all they need is a little perspective - oh and maybe a casual wave of some pliers (evil grin).
Perspective is definitely key - now if Ianto just gives him a tour of the cells...

Thank you!
Well Ianto put him in his place LOL

great drabble
You don't want to dis Ianto's planet, hometown or place of work!

Thank you!
Ianto knows just how to intimidate without actually doing anything. The alien has enough sense to recognise that and caves in. I'd hate to get on his wrong side '
No one with any sense wants to get on Ianto's bad side, he's good at cutting people down to size.

Thank you!
Guests on a strange planet had best be careful about insulting their hosts! (Not that the Doctor always heeds that.)
True, they should be on their best behaviour.

The Doctor is a law unto himself!

Thank you!

Yeah, that's right *nods* You should be so lucky to have Torchwood's finest looking after you. Best coffee this side of the Octavia Cluster. And probably the other side, too.

Not that this alien will be offered coffee it he keeps up the insults!

Thank you!
