October in Cardiff, and the city was holding its Annual Halloween Carved Pumpkin contest. Jack had bought pumpkins for the whole team, on the assumption that if they all entered, they were bound to win something.
It took a week in between Rift alerts to get their pumpkins ready, everyone working in secret, but finally the big moment came. They took their pumpkins up to join the hundreds of others on the Plas. It was quite a sight.
With dozens of categories, Torchwood couldn’t fail. Owen’s Weevil design won Scariest Pumpkin. Jack’s was disqualified for being too rude to display.
