WIAD 2.03 - 'The Not-So-Fantastic Five' (Torchwood, implied Jack/Ianto)

For writerinadrawer's third challenge, 'Superpowers,' with the added element of a book. Excitingly, I got the highest score this round and immunity for the next. Yay! I'm actually extremely flattered.


Title: The Not-So-Fantastic Five
Rating: PG
Spoilers: None that I'm aware of.

TO: Harkness, Jack
CC: Cooper, Gwen; Harper, Owen; Sato, Toshiko
FROM: Jones, Ianto
SUBJECT: Potential causes

According to my research, we may be or have been:

1. Genetically mutated
2. Bitten by a radioactive arachnid
3. Exposed to solar radiation
4. Secretly aliens from another planet
5. Under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs

Will keep looking, but you'd be surprised how hard it is to pick something up when you can't see your own hands.

6. Completely and utterly daft

Seriously tea boy if I'd known comic books counted as a reliable source I would've used Doc Ock as a reference for my BS.

Owen, last I checked, your BS didn't need references.

Leave Ianto alone, he's only trying to help.

BTW, has anyone figured out how to turn it off yet? I don't think I can sleep tonight if I'm still glowing in the dark. What am I going to tell Rhys??

You know, you defeat the purpose in having x-ray vision.

Much later, Ianto seals the alien device into a storage box and locks it up with a tag reading 'NOT FOR USE.'

"Well, that was interesting," he remarks, locking it away with the growing collection inside Jack's safe.

"A device granting us temporary super powers? Probably a novelty. Some eight year old alien kid's dream toy." Jack grins, elbow edging over to knock into the stack of comic books on the corner of his desk, scattering several onto the floor. "Whoops."

Ianto sighs and bends over to pick them up. "I thought your affliction wore off."

"It did." Jack grins wider, leaning back in his chair to enjoy the view. "I don't need super powers ... half the fun's in using my imagination."
