Headhunting Drabble

Title: Headhunting
Author: CrabbyLioness
Characters: Ianto, hapless Stormtroopers
Disclaimer: I'm not making a penny.
Rating: G, pure unadulterated crossover crack 
Based on that picture.

"Are you sure about him?" The helmet concealed the face, but there was no mistaking the doubt in the voice as it's owner stared at the scowling young man in chains the squad had just brought in.

The Lieutenant sighed. "He's the only one we could find who fit the description. Cyber-maintenance skills, high-level butling skills, courage, discretion, proven ability to handle a high-stress work environment, astronomically high loyalty levels -- if he isn't good enough I don't know where else we'll find Lord Vader a new valet." 

Author's Note: Based on the lovely picture  laligintook  in Birmingham and posted here

ETA:  And reposted here with her kind permission.  Thank you!

Part 2

I've always had a soft spot for the redshirts/grunts, probably from watching too many WW2 movies as a child.

Haha 'Cyber-maintenance skills, high-level butling skills, courage, discretion, proven ability to handle a high-stress work environment, astronomically high loyalty levels' loved that, mostly because it's true. I'm going to make some icons from *that* picture very soon. I have a feeling that *that* picture may become the stuff of fandom legend.

That was fantastic.....I am hoping we can get Gareth to Dragon*Con this year....several hundred members of the 501st attend....could prove interesting.

I've got a sequal in mind that continues their POV. I thought about throwing in Jack and Vader, but why? You've got Ianto and a squad of Stormtroopers. That's enough for a series right there. Jack and Vader are just gravy.

Because the look on his face says, "Just wait until I get you in this position?"

oh my god. GEEEEEEEENIUS.

Vader throttles another minion. then feels guilty about it because Ianto's raised his eyebrow a precisely calculated fraction of an inch and he just knows he's going to come out with a dry comment about having to pick up after some people who never learned not to break their toys.

There's a high turnover when the Sith Lord feels tetchy. Why do you think they're having to look so far afield in the first place.

heheh! fantastic!
am immagining it now...
Vader's valet...
really dunno weather he would agree to it at all... but then Jack could come to the resue with the whole rebellion at his side...

see he never should have agreed to that one trip in the Tardis!

Brilliant! I'm so glad someone has used the pure fabulousness of that pic as a prompt.

Now I'm imagining Jack as Han and Owen as Chewie... oh dear!
