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 766: Fledglings - Sequel to 'Mummy Ianto'
Author's Notes: My fifth drabble for Challenge 347: Silver at tw100.

Summary: The babies are growing.

The creatures had voracious appetites and grew fast. In a week, they’d doubled in size, three-inches long, stalking mealworms as they learned to hunt. They resembled miniature dragons, with iridescent silver scales and delicate wings.

Three weeks and they’d doubled in size again; mealworms were still devoured eagerly but weren’t sufficient challenge for the little hunters. Ianto bought crickets and locusts, watching proudly as the fledglings learned teamwork in order to catch their prey.

The human team adjusted to being used as convenient perches to launch hunts from, and took to checking each other for hitchhikers before leaving the Hub.
