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 79: Accidental Parenthood
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 282 – Parents at tw100.

By popular demand, here is the prequel to my drabbles ‘Night Feeds’ and ‘Feeding Time’.

Summary: An accident with alien tech creates a small problem…

It all happened in a flash — literally.

Tosh was examining a piece of alien tech they’d retrieved. Owen dodged to avoid stepping on Nosy and tripped over his chair, knocking the tech to the floor.

A blinding flash of white light shot upwards, there was a startled squawk and suddenly Myfanwy was on the ground, glowing brightly and visibly shrinking.

Ianto thought later that if she had simply shrunk it wouldn’t have been too bad, but when the glow faded instead of an adult pteranodon there sat a small, newly hatched, hungry chick, convinced he and Jack were its parents.

Continued in ‘Night Feeds’
