The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 1041: Naming Owen - Sequel to ‘The Superhero Name Game’
Author's Notes: Part four of my drabble series for Challenge 412: Super-Heroes at tw100.

Summary: It’s Owen’s turn.

Owen’s superhero name was proving difficult to pin down. What could possibly fit Torchwood’s irascible medic?

“Doctor Grumpy,” Jack suggested.

“Sounds more like one of the Seven Dwarfs. How about Medical Man?”

They looked at each other and both shook their heads. “Nah.”

“The Surgeon?” Jack tried.

“Scalpel Man?”

“Doctor Miraculous?”

“Only when he comes to work sober,” Ianto replied, deadpan.

Jack laughed. “Good one!”

“The Xenobiologist?”

“Too much of a mouthful.”

“Doctor Fix It?”

“Sounds like a handyman.”


“That might work.”

“That wasn’t a suggestion, Jack!”

“Oh, sorry.”

“Wait, I’ve got it! The Weevil Whisperer!”

Jack laughed. “Perfect!”
