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 427: Not Seeing Things - Sequel to ‘Seeing Things?’
Author's Notes: My 32nd drabble for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100. I don't have any more written... yet. This might still continue though, just have to look at the remaining prompts again, see what I still have to work with. Prompt at the end.

Summary: Owen doesn’t know what’s worse – hallucinating or not hallucinating.

When Ianto saw Owen arrive at the Hub that morning looking more than a little hung-over and immediately make his way to the autopsy bay to suffer in peace, he looked over at Jack and winked.

“Wait for it…”

A moment later, Owen’s voice drifted up from his domain, sounding rather uncertain.


“Yes, Owen?”

“Either I’m hallucinating or there’s a wallaby down here.”

“Oh, that’s just Daisy, she won’t hurt you.”

“O-kay. Why’s it smiling at me? That’s seriously creepy!”

“She’s just saying hello.”

Owen stared. Daisy smiled.

“I hate this place!” Owen muttered.

Daisy patted his shoulder consolingly.

A/N: Title used is ‘Wait For It’
