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 727: Timely Arrival
Author's Notes: My second drabble for Challenge 340: Spiders at tw100.

Summary: The team are in peril, but rescue is at hand.

This was Jack’s worst nightmare made reality. Captured and trussed up by giant alien spiders, his skin crawled as he watched them scuttling around, binding the rest of his team with their webs.

Paralysed by spider bites, they were helpless and seemingly doomed, until with an ear-piercing screech the cavalry arrived.

Myfanwy swooped low, her beak stabbing at the spiders, her talons slashing. They tried to bite her, but her leathery skin was too tough for their mandibles to penetrate; they couldn’t produce their web fast enough to cocoon her.

Never had Jack been so glad to see the Pteranodon.
