Owen

Drabble: Communication Fail

Title: Communication Fail
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Owen, Ianto, OCs.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 475: Mean at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: It’s always tricky communicating with people who don’t know your language…
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.





Team Torchwood were helping a group of aliens whose ship had landed on earth rather more suddenly than intended, thanks to engine failure.


Giving them the thumbs up to let them know they were all fine after their rough landing, Owen was taken aback by their reaction. Every last one of them flushed from pale blue to bright purple, their feathery crests shot upright, and their already large eyes widened so far he half expected their eyeballs to fall out.


“Uh, Owen?” Ianto murmured. “Somehow I don’t think that gesture means the same to them as it does to us.”



The End

Poor Owen. Easy mistake to make. I'm sure Ianto will figure out how to smooth things over till Jack gets there
Jack's probably already there, busy with Tosh repairing the ship. He'll soothe any ruffled feathers shortly, but now may be a good time for Ianto to practice his Galactic Standard ;)

Thank you!
Whoops hope Owen wasnt too rude to their new friends LOL. should have asked Jack to teach him the lingo first haha

Great drabble
Jack will sort out the misunderstanding. The aliens are shocked, but once they know that no offence was intended it will be fine.

Thank you!
