Rec - Torchwood Goes Watercolor by Canaan

I began my recs with an angsty crossover. Let's end with something VERY silly...

Story: Torchwood Goes Watercolor
Author: Canaan
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1207
Author's Summary: A strange being comes through the Cardiff rift. Stranger than usual, even. Torchwood/Looney Tunes crossover.
Characters/Pairings: Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Other Character(s), Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a Looney Tunes crossover and ships Jack with a toon - do you really need more justification than that?

The alien walks calmly over to his spatial transmogrifier. This device--this elegant solution--will fold the Earth in upon itself, clearing that section of space without the obstructive messiness of debris. He inserts the critical component: a crisp, green block of compressed lunetrium sufficient to power a hundred rocket ships for the next thousand years. He strokes the lunetrium fondly as his other hand programs coordinates into the control panel. At the very last second, he sticks his fingers in his ears. There's a momentary darkness. Time seems to have passed when he opens his eyes and sees blue.


He's flat on his back, looking up at a concave blue hemisphere. This is concerning, as blue hemispheres ought to be convex. He also feels as if he's been run over by the Neptune Express. He gets to his knees before a man's voice says, "Don't move."

There's a trio of earthlings looking at him. Dark, tight-fitting clothing covers most of their ghastly pink skins. He hears more earthlings moving behind him. "Who the hell are you?" Marvin asks.

They look out at him over primitive devices he assumes are guns. A woman in imposing boots answers him: "We're Torchwood."

I hope that you've enjoyed these recs - if so, please show your appreciation of the authors by reviewing the stories!
