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 283: Good Newts!
Author's Notes: For kul_breez’s prompt ‘conservation’

Summary: Torchwood has previously unnoticed residents.

Coming down into the Hub on the invisible lift, Jack was treated to a very stimulating view of Ianto, on hands and knees, peering into the Rift pool.

“Loving the view, Ianto!” he grinned. “Mind if I ask what you’re doing?”

“We have Newts!”

“Oh. That sounds bad.” Jack frowned. “How do we get rid of them?”

Ianto looked horrified.

“We don’t! I’m pretty sure they’re Great Crested. Do you have any idea how endangered they are? We should consider ourselves lucky, they’re a protected species.”

“Really?” Jack peered at the Newts. “Looks like Torchwood’s branching out into nature conservation.”
