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 300: Bookworm
Author's Notes: Hmmmm, I think this is my seventh drabble for Challenge 309 – The Library at tw100.

Summary: Everyone loves a good book – even fluffy aliens!

“Right,” said Ianto, “I’m off to the library, does anyone have any books to return?”

“I do!” yelled Jack, scrambling to fetch his books. “I’ve got a book reserved too. Just came in, could you collect it for me please?” He gave Ianto his best puppy dog eyes as he handed over his books and library card.

“No problem, Cariad.”

Nosy hurriedly slithered over, its toy cart laden with books.


“Yes, Nosy, I’ll get you some more books.”

“Hang on, Nosy has a library card?” Owen was stunned.

“Of course it does,” Ianto smirked. “Under the name Neil Ayson.”

The End

A/N: Confused by Nosy’s alias? Try reading it backwards ;)
