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 698: Doughnuts
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 336 – Junk Food at tw100.

Summary: Do doughnuts constitute a threat?

Jack set a box of ordinary-looking doughnuts on the boardroom table.

“Whatever you do, don’t eat these.”

“Why not?” Gwen asked.

“They came through the Rift. Owen took them to run tests; now he’s vanished and there’s an extra doughnut.”

“Owen might be a doughnut?”


The team eyed the doughnuts uncertainly.

“Become what you eat,” Ianto said slowly. “Mam used to warn me about that. I never believed her.”

They were still warily watching the doughnuts when Owen walked in. Everyone jumped up, hugging him.

“You’re not a doughnut!” exclaimed Tosh.

Owen stared at them, baffled. “You’re all nuts!”
