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 184: Food For Thought
Author's Notes: Here's another drabble for Challenge 299 – Green Eggs and Ham at tw100.

Summary: There’s no accounting for tastes.

Ianto stared at the small group of aliens huddled together in the tourist office. They had endured an unimaginably long and perilous journey to reach Cardiff and now they stood before him, nervous yet hopeful that their quest had not been in vain.

“Let me get this straight. You travelled to Cardiff from the other end of the galaxy?”

Seven heads nodded in unison, round eyes blinking solemnly.

“Loooong way! Many danger. Much time pass.”

“All that way for…?”

“Great delicacy. We take back, we heroes, much praise, many females!”

“Wait here. I have to go shopping. For dog biscuits.”
