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 61: Shapes
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 279 – Triangular at tw100. There will definitely be at least one more for this challenge.

Not sure about this one, I don't think it's one of my better drabbles.

Summary: Nosy is a fast learner.

“What are you two up to?” Ianto asked Tosh, who was talking animatedly to Nosy.

“I’m teaching Nosy about different shapes!” Tosh sounded rather pleased with herself.

Ianto raised an eyebrow. “Care to demonstrate?”

Tosh grinned. “Nosy, what shape is a wheel?”

Nosy squiggled around, nose to tail, until its body formed a circle.

“Very good!” She gave Nosy a grape. “What shape is an egg?”

More squiggling and Nosy settled into a rough oval, earning itself another grape.


“Bet you £10 it can’t do a triangle,” said Owen.

Nosy rearranged itself.


“World’s first triangular Fluff!” Ianto smirked.
