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 12: A Weevilly Inconvenience
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 256 - Freaky Friday at tw100

This is the first of a trilogy, looking at different aspects of the situation.

Summary: There's a slight Weevil-related problem....

Owen skulked up from the vaults, shoulders hunched and arms hanging at his sides. He was walking oddly, almost shuffling with his knees bent.

Ianto watched him curiously. Something wasn’t right.


Owen jerked around, snarled and backed away.

That was… odd.

“Jack? I think we have a problem.”

“What is it now?”

“You know Owen’s been running tests on Janet using that new piece of alien medical tech…”

“I vaguely recall something about that, yes.”

“I think he may have accidentally switched bodies with her.”

“Our medic’s a weevil?”

“Yeah, and I don’t think she’s very happy about it!”

The End
