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 659: Not-Earth Worms – Sequel to ‘Worms’
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 331 – Worms at tw100.

Summary: Ianto meets Jack’s worms.

Ianto was extremely relieved to discover that Jack’s worms were of the earthworm variety, although Jack explained they weren’t actually from earth, which was why they were in a wormery in the first place.

“They’re from Veltaxis,” he explained, showing them to Ianto. “They’d thrive here, but regular earthworms would probably be wiped out; they’d be unable to compete.”

The Veltaxis worms were longer and fatter than earth’s worms, strikingly striped black and white, and very sinuous. Ianto could see why Tosh found them so fascinating; they were almost hypnotic.

“I watch them for relaxation,” Jack admitted. “It’s very soothing.”
