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 765: Mummy Ianto - Sequel to 'Hatchlings'
Author's Notes: My fourth drabble for Challenge 347: Silver at tw100.

Summary: Ianto starts to adjust to his role as surrogate mum.

‘Great! Now I’m mummy, with thirty-seven hungry mouths to feed!’ Ianto thought with a sigh. His scalp tickled from the brood’s little feet. He’d need to persuade them to stay in some sort of nest; he couldn’t carry them around on his head all the time.

A heat-lamp over a box containing one of his t-shirts did the trick. It smelled of him and was cosy to snuggle into, silver scales shimmering in the lamplight.

The babies were already quite independent, able to flutter out and feast on the mealworms Tosh had provided. Maybe being surrogate mum wasn’t so bad.
