Title: Black Dog | AO3

Characters: Jack, Tosh
Challenge: #250, blue moon
Rating: G
Notes: based on the legend of the black dog

It was a miserable day in Cardiff. There was a severe thunderstorm lingering over the city.

"Jack, I'm pulling something up on the mainframe," Tosh said.

"What is it, Toshiko?"

"It's something that looks like a dog, but it seems bigger than one."

Jack ran to Tosh's computer. "Can you zoom in on what you're talking about?"

Tosh enlarged the photo of the large dog creature. It had glowing red eyes.

"That's really rare," Jack said. "You only see one of those once in a blue moon."

"What is it, Jack?"

"It's a black dog. Someone's going to die today."

So apparently I missed the announcement for the latest [ profile] tw100 drabble this morning (along with this mythology ficathon). lol, oops. Anyway:

Title: The Mechanoid Harp | AO3
Author: [personal profile] merryghoul
Characters: Ianto, Owen
Challenge: #249, Jack and the Beanstalk | f_p
Rating: PG
Notes: crack, nod to a Classic Who villain, sms text format

(Ianto Jones) Remember when the Mechanoid ship fell through the Rift?

(Owen Harper) Don't remind me.

(Ianto Jones) We had to put baby oil on you so you could fit in the opening.

(Owen Harper) Stop it, Ianto.

(Ianto Jones) And you were so upset you came back with a harp that can play by itself. Lol. Awesome. Seriously though, I need you focused next year. We're gone have a lot of drinking and stupid nonsense to do, and I don't want dumb shit like responsibility to get in my fucking way.

(Owen Harper) At least we agree on that.

Title: Prey | AO3
Author: [personal profile] merryghoul
Characters: Suzie
Challenge: #248, Pied Piper
Rating: PG-13
Notes: Inspired by Long Time Dead, but nothing spoilery.

It was easy for Suzie to lure men to their deaths. All she had to do was use her feminine wiles.

Suzie was fond of the sob story, but sometimes the sob story could only go so far. She had to rely on other things, like her physical attractiveness.

One short, black dress and some makeup later and Suzie was ready for the clubs. There, she'd search for her prey.

Once she had her prey in sight, she seduced him and took him home.

And Suzie made sure the last thing her prey saw was the blades of her knife.

Title: Just Gotta Get Right Out of Here | AO3 | Teaspoon
Author: [personal profile] merryghoul
Characters: Jack
Challenge: #245, the Olympics
Rating: G
Notes: Inspired by the short Doctor Who tribute at the 2012 Opening Ceremonies.

Jack snuck into the Olympic Stadium in London to watch the opening ceremonies.  They were always a spectacle, especially in the modern era, and he wanted to see London's take on them.

Jack liked every portion of the opening ceremonies. But he almost left the stadium during the middle of the technology segment.

The sound of the TARDIS was heard during Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." Jack was about to teleport to the floor of Olympic Stadium to find the Doctor's TARDIS.

He looked up. The incarnations of the Doctor were on a television screen.

"Danny Boyle knows the Doctor?" he said.

Tosh was in the medical bay awaiting the removal of shrapnel in her arm.

"Are you nervous, Tosh?" Owen asked.

Tosh nodded.

"Don't be. You'll only feel a sting when I clean the wound."

Owen removed the shrapnel. He also put a few stitches in her arm.

"You can open your eyes now."

Tosh opened her eyes. Owen pointed to the wound.

"I'll need to take the stitches out in a few weeks. If you feel any pain, let me know as soon as you can, okay?"

"I will. And thank you, Owen."

Owen squeezed her hand. "You're welcome, Tosh."

Title: Things From the Rift | AO3 | Teaspoon
Author: [personal profile] merryghoul
Characters: Suzie
Challenge: #243, Henny Penny
Rating: G

Sometimes, while she worked on the Resurrection Glove, Suzie would imagine it, the other glove (wherever it was) and the knife getting sucked through the Rift. Suzie thought all of those items were thrown out into space by someone or something not human (or from Earth). Maybe they were thrown away in an act of defiance. Maybe the maker of these items couldn't control them anymore. Maybe these items were condemned from a society.

What Suzie did know is that the glove she had and the knife would be the end and the beginning of the rest of her life.

Title: No Sun For You | AO3 | Teaspoon
Author: [personal profile] merryghoul
Characters: Jack Harkness, Suzie Costello
Challenge: #242, sun
Rating: G
Notes: Set during the audiobook In the Shadows (just before "Adam"), where Jack falls into Hell, lives in a flat owned by his former Torchwood boss, and Suzie is a meteorologist there with the power to mock Jack as he watches her.

Suzie looked into a monitor to view the weather. "The satellite is showing clear, sunny skies. No, that's not right."

Jack smiled. "That's great, isn't it, Suzie?"

"Oh, shut up, Jack."

Suzie walked up to the monitor and shook it. As she was shaking it, the weather outside started to get cloudier and darker.

Suzie walked back up to the green screen. The satellite was showing cloud cover over the United Kingdom.

"Okay. The satellite is now showing dark clouds over all the United Kingdom. They'll continue to be over the UK until the evening."

Jack sighed. "You win, Suzie."

Title: Sea Devil, now on AO3 and Teaspoon
Author: [personal profile] merryghoul 
Characters: Jack, Owen
Challenge: #241.5, belated
Rating: PG


I'm tangled in a fishing net down at the harbour. That's why I'm texting you now.

I was trying to trap this alien who was hanging out near Cardiff Bay. The alien was actually not an alien at all. It was a Sea Devil.

The Sea Devil ran back in the water and over the trap I set in it. Now I'm hanging seven feet from the bay.

I swear I wasn't drinking. This has nothing to do with Captain Morgan. Bring wirecutters. And don't bring Ianto, please.

I thought the Sea Devil could cut through rope, okay?

"Yes, Jack?"

"I need you to check on that one-eyed monster. He's secure in a holding cell, but he might get out."

Ianto giggled.

"What'd I say? I said there's a one-eyed monster in a holding cell and he might get out. What's wrong with that?"

Ianto cleared his throat. "Sir, you do realize you've made a masturbation pun?"

"But there really is a one eyed monster in a holding cell and he's this close to breaking the plexiglass in the cell. Can you check on him for me?"

Ianto kept giggling.

"Forget it, Ianto, I'll do it myself."

Title: Good News Day | AO3 | Teaspoon
[ profile] tw100 Challenge: #234, unloved prompts, and #176, journalism
Rating: PG-13
Notes: Spoilers for episodes 1.01-1.06. Inspired by a Werner Herzog documentary I recently saw. (And written because I was ill and couldn't focus on my current WIPs today.)

A good day in the world of journalism depends on the worst things happening to human beings. In Cardiff, journalists have Torchwood to thank for good news days.

People being stabbed with a three-bladed knife? Thank Torchwood.

Sudden disappearances in Cardiff nightclubs? Thank Torchwood.

Cannibals found and arrested in the Brecon Beacons? Thank Torchwood.

Retcon helps suppress the memories of those affected by alien phenomena. Their accounts make the media rounds, but what really happened will only be known to Torchwood.

As for those non-alien encounters? The police keep Torchwood's secret. To the press, Torchwood's nickname is "police special ops."
