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 223: The First Day…
Author's Notes: My first drabble for Challenge 303 – Twelve Days at tw100 and the first part of The Twelve Days of Riftmas. I haven't written them all yet, so wish me luck!

Summary: It’s Christmas, and the Rift is apparently in a giving mood…

Warnings: Random insanity.

On the first day of Christmas, Torchwood got a call from the police. A pair of odd birds had got inside Mrs Partridge’s house and made themselves at home in her Christmas tree.

She hadn’t minded at first, they were pretty and seemed satisfied with the crumbs she fed them. Then they’d built a nest of tinsel and started courting.

“Can’t hear myself think over the racket they’re making,” she told the team when they went to investigate.

“Skreeeek! Skreeeek!” sounded from the living room, like fingernails down a blackboard.

“I see what you mean,” said Ianto, handing out earplugs.
