Title: Disclaimer
Rating: G
Characters:
Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones, Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper
Genre: drabble
Words: 100
Spoilers: None.
Summary: "How can an alien artifact be so bloody boring?"
Disclaimer: I am not the BBC.
A/N: Written for
rabecka .  Prompt given at the end of the drabble.


"How can an alien artifact be so bloody boring?"

"You could play with Daffyd's toy robot, Owen," Gwen said.  "I haven't wrapped it yet."

Tosh couldn't translate the markings on it.  "It could say anything.  'May cause drowsiness.  Do not bleach.'"

Jack smirked.  "Slippery when wet."

"Handle with care," Ianto murmured.

As Jack approached Gwen's desk, the artifact in his hand came to life.  Lights flashed, music sounded.  He stepped back; the device stilled.

Gwen pulled two small cylinders from her bag.  She held them out to Jack.  The alien device chimed and sparkled again.

Jack grinned.  "Batteries not included."

----------------

Rabecka wanted as "characters" a Rift artifact and a battery, and the prompt: "disclaimer".

*snicker* This is wonderful. I love that the character voices are so dead on - yeah, of course Jack would go with "slippery when wet".

re the prompt: All I have to say in my defense is that you shouldn't put such amusing disclaimers on your request posts. It gives us strange ideas...

Unless he could think of something dirtier. ;-)

I'd never done a request post before. And it seemed... arrogant, without a touch of humor to leaven it.

When Ianto said "Handle with care," I went "aawww."

Cute.

Thanks. I almost gave that line to Tosh, but then I realized that it had to go to Ianto.
