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!

Chapter 154: The Gathering
Author's Notes: My fourth and final drabble for Challenge 294 – Teddy Bears’ Picnic at tw100. I decided I should write something that fit the prompt a bit better…

Summary: Jack and the team observe some alien visitors.

“They’re not actually teddy bears,” Jack explained to his team in a low voice, “they just look similar.”

Truthfully, the creatures really did resemble oversized stuffed toy bears. There were around seventy of them, all shades of brown and grey, sitting in a circle in a woodland clearing.

“Are they having a picnic?” Gwen asked in an awed whisper.

“Clan gathering,” Jack replied. “Every year they choose a neutral planet and the clan leaders gather for a meeting; set up trade, exchange news, elect new leaders, that kind of thing. Don’t worry, they’re peaceful folk. By morning they’ll be gone.”
