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 505: Coming Unfluffed
Author's Notes: This one’s for milady_dragon. Thought you could do with a little boost considering everything you’re dealing with right now!

I really should have posted this one before ‘Personal Grooming’ (Ch. 466), which is kind of the sequel.

Prompt is at the end.

Summary: Nosy is exhibiting a strange symptom, causing Jack to panic.

“Ianto!” Jack ran from his office, eyes wide with panic.

“Jack? What’s wrong?”

“Nosy’s going bald!”


“It’s not my fault, I was just stroking it and all its fluff started falling out!” Jack sounded frantic, holding up a handful of green hairs. “Look!”

Ianto tried very hard not to laugh, but failed.

“Jack, it’s okay. Nosy’s just shedding its winter coat, it won’t go bald.”

“Oh. Are you sure?”

“Quite sure,” Ianto replied ruefully, watching Nosy slither past leaving a trail of green fluff in its wake.

“I really should teach Nosy to use the vacuum cleaner,” he sighed.

The End

A/N: Prompt was ‘Nosy starts shedding’.
