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 454: Lot Number 8
Author's Notes: For the prompt ‘Lot Number 8’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 288 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

Summary: Items of alien origin turn up in the oddest places.

The Rift had existed for many years, happily dropping strange bits and pieces on an unsuspecting Cardiff. Torchwood did their best to collect everything, but even so, there would always be the occasional item that slipped through unnoticed.

One of Ianto’s favourite tasks was to check the various places such items might come up for sale; today, he was at a local auction, having spotted a suspect lot in their latest catalogue.

Lot Number 8 was described as an old-fashioned flatiron, but was really an alien data-storage device. Ianto smiled and raised his paddle. Tosh was going to love it!
