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 281: Creature Feature
Author's Notes: For star54kar’s prompt, "It's a one eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater!"

Summary: Torchwood never knows what will come through the Rift next…

They really should have been accustomed by now to the strange creatures the Rift took pleasure in dumping on an unsuspecting Cardiff.

However, the monstrosity now hovering in front of them had come as something of a surprise.

“It's a one eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater!” Tosh gasped. “Whoever wrote that song must have seen one!”

“Sheb Woolley,” Ianto said distractedly.


“The writer.”


The one eyed, one horned, flying purple creature glared at them.

“I’ll have you know I most certainly do not eat people! That’s slander! I happen to be a vegetarian,” it said huffily.
