TWFanFic: Growing On Me [Owen Harper/Ianto Jones]  
Title: Growing On Me
Rating(s): PG-Rated.
Pairing(s): Owen Harper/Ianto Jones.
Word Count: 497words
Challenge: written for writerinadrawerround 1.05 "Oops".
A/N: I'd meant to post this a couple of weeks ago, but just haven't had a moment until now. When submitted to WiaD I recieved only negative votes for this entry and thus was one of the entrants who ended up in a drawer, so all manner of constructive critisism is more than appreciated.

I told you not to eat it!” Ianto snapped, turning a glare upon Owen who returned the look with a scowl just as ferocious.

“How was I supposed to know the candy was cursed?” He grouched; his hand on his hip as he squared off to Ianto.

“Aside from the fact that this is Torchwood and we deal with all manner of alien artefacts-,”

“We eat in here all the time!” Owen interrupted. Ianto pinched at the bridge of his nose, gathering his control before deigning to reply.

“Not, as far as I’m aware, from quarantined parcels I’ve explicitly labelled as being unfit for consumption.”

“Yeah, well…” Owen shrugged and Ianto had the unsettling sensation of feeling his own shoulder lift and fall with the movement. He squeezed his eyes shut in the hopes that when he opened them again he’d awaken from this particularly awful nightmare.

“How come you got… affected too?” Owen asked, his voice a mutter as he prodded at Ianto’s chest.

Ianto’s slapped the hand away. Inching his eyes open only to wince as he realised nothing had changed. He sighed and turned his head to look at Owen’s head.

“Clearly I’m being punished for all my offences.” He grumbled, looking away and tugging at the white sheet covering them from the waist down.

“Oh, ha-ha!” Owen mocked, flicking at Ianto’s ear.

“Will you please stop touching me?” Ianto snapped, whacking at Owen’s hand again.

“Hey, you’re a part of me now, so… technically I’m touching myself.” Owen grinned in a way that made Ianto blanch, before blushing an unflattering shade of pink.

“How do you know it’s not you who’s growing on me?” Ianto shot back whilst trying to ignore Owen’s lecherous grin.

“You’re blushing!” Owen crowed, grinning more widely. Ianto grit his teeth.

“I am not.”

“Yes, you are.” Owen reached out, prodding at Ianto’s chest again. Ianto grabbed at his finger, meaning to sharply twist it the wrong way but somehow finding himself just… holding on. Owen was watching him, some blend of curiosity and interest- as if he were examining Ianto as some alien specimen he found particularly fascinating. Ianto found himself staring back.

“It’s sort of fascinating…” Owen whispered, flexing his fingers about Ianto’s hand. “That I have control of the right side and you the left and yet…” he looked down as best he could. “And yet we have only one body between us. One set of arms, one pair of legs… one…” he drifted off, waggling his eyebrows.

“Owen!” Ianto swiftly dropped the doctor’s hand.

“Two heads though,” Owen smirked.

“You’re not- you’re not dealing with this properly!” Ianto huffed. “We need to figure out how to de-attach ourselves!”

“Jack’s working on that right now,” Owen said, reaching out to stroke at Ianto’s face, “which leaves us plenty of time to get better acquainted.”

“I think that candy has addled your senses, Owen.” Ianto breathed, but this time, he made no move to push Owen away.

Okay so this isn't exactly someting I'm use to seeing you write and I hardly ever read Ianto/Owen! But this was good, made me smile anyway and no I'm not just saying that!

It is good, I can't understand why you'd get such negative feedback from this?

I've not really tried my hand with these boys before, but the prompt just seemed to fit for the situation and well, things went on from there. I was really kind of proud of this piece and quite gutted that no one else seemed to like it!

But thanks hun, I'm glad you took a change to read it :)

If I'd had a larger word count to work with I'd have added that the effects of the candy would have worn off eventually, so yes, Jack is most likely having a bit of fun with the CCTV ;D

heh. Thanks, hun!

Hey sweetie. That was cute! Yeah, I can totally see Owen using the situation to his best advantage.

I haven't been around much recently so... er... happy belated birthday! *hangs head in shame* Hope you had a great one!

And no worries! I still love you ;) I had a great birthday, it lasted pretty much two weekends, which was awesome X)

X) thanks! I'm glad you still enjoyed it despite it not being what you were expecting. Once I had the initial idea of this piece, it just refused to be written any other way! heh.

OMG! Two Heads With But One Body? The Oddest Couple?
Cracky as hell, but *g*, why not? If anyone could pull it off, you could, and i think you did. More adventures of these conjoined idiots would be fun to read I think.

XD heh, thanks! More, eh? Well, I really hadn't thought about continuing with the idea but who know? Never say never, right? ;)

Thank you!

Oh this was a great mix of humour and hotness
Normally I like Jack/Ianto, but I think Owen/Ianto is beginning to grow on me *grin*

Thank you! I'm a total Jack/Ianto girl, but these boys just *happened* when I was writing this, I really had no control over it! Really glad it worked for you :D
