Author's Notes:
Drabble number 31 for Challenge 316 – Reverse Fandom – How I Met Your Mother at tw100. This one and the next one are sort of two sides of the same scene – Owen’s POV, then events from Ianto and Jack’s POV. I’ll try to get both posted today. Prompt at the end.

Summary: A hung-over Owen comes across something weird in the autopsy bay.

Slumping at his desk in the autopsy bay, Owen put his head in his hands, groaning. He shouldn’t have had that last pint; his head was killing him. He wished he’d stayed home in bed, but he’d left a test running the night before and needed to check the results.

A noise nearby made him look up, hoping Ianto was bringing a much-needed coffee. It wasn’t Ianto.

Usually when he was drunk or seriously hung-over, Owen expected to see pink elephants like everyone did, maybe the odd purple giraffe. That was fine. This though…

A wallaby was smiling at him.


A/N2: Title used is ‘Purple Giraffe’
