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 1095: Handy Hoix
Author's Notes: My final drabble for Challenge 424: Hunger at tw100.

Summary: Even a Hoix has its uses.

Hoix are eating machines. Anything organic will do, they’re even less fussy than weevils in that respect. In fact, a Hoix is probably the only creature anywhere that would eat a Weevil.

About the only thing safe from a Hoix’s appetite is another Hoix. If that weren’t the case, they’d each themselves into extinction. The hunger of the Hoix is legendary.

The one in Torchwood’s cells is no exception; it can eat its own bodyweight every day and still want more. Torchwood would be facing bankruptcy from feeding it, but for one thing.

It’s a really excellent garbage disposal unit.
