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 982: Specialised Diet
Author's Notes: My third drabble for Challenge 399: Diet at tw100.

Summary: Everyone’s tastes in food are different.

Going in search of Ianto one boring afternoon, Jack found his lover down in the showers with the Kneeble colony, letting them splash around in the water, getting clean by grooming each other, and occasionally climbing the walls.

“Lively bunch, aren’t they,” Ianto grinned, watching their antics.

“Very,” Jack agreed as a Kneeble scampered over on its short little legs and scrambled up him to be petted. “It’s amazing how healthy they are on a diet of lichen and slime.”

“To each their own,” Ianto shrugged. “To a Kneeble, slime is the epitome of fine dining.”

“Rather them than me.”
