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 941: Deca What?
Author's Notes: My fourth and final drabble for Challenge 390: Ten at tw100.

Summary: The Rift brings another strange creature.

“Ugh! What is that?” Gwen recoiled with a disgusted expression on her face at the sight of the creature the Rift had seen fit to gift them with. “It looks like some kind of weird fuzzy spider!”

Ianto shook his head. “Can’t be. Spiders have eight legs but this thing’s got ten.”

“It’s a Decapod,” Jack said. “Completely harmless, they’re frugivores and they live in trees. You should see them when they eat fermenting fruit. They get drunk and start tripping over their own legs, bumping into each other, and falling out of the trees.”

“I’ll pass,” Gwen said, shuddering.
