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 447: Monstrous Beastie
Author's Notes: My sixth drabble for Challenge 317 – Mammoth at tw100. This is probably my last for this challenge, I don't have any other ideas.

Summary: Jack is confronted by something horrible and needs rescuing.

“IANTO!” Jack’s voice came through the comms., sounding more than a little panicked.

“Jack? What’s up?”

“I could really use your help here!”

“On my way.” Ianto drew his gun and set off at a run. “What is it?”

“Don’t know, but it’s big! No, huge, enormous, immense, massive, humongous, of mammoth proportions…”

“Okay, okay, I get the picture.” Ianto just hoped his handgun would be enough firepower to deal with this monster. He skidded to a halt beside Jack, looking around. “Where is it?”

“There,” Jack quavered, pointing.

Ianto looked and burst out laughing.

“Jack, it’s a stick insect!”
