What would you expect Owen, as a child, to be afraid of?
What is something he would be scared of seeing or doing?
I’m convinced that he was being abused by his mum, so I’m also convinced that he wouldn’t like people touching him, and he wouldn’t like being in large crowds, he’d much rather be alone. In my head, this only changed once he left home. And yeah. That’s it.
Yeah, I’ve always thought he liked being alone better.
But I was thinking like a specific thing like, I dunno, swimming or being high up or something. Something that I can use for my fic.
(Which you can beta-read, if you like. For some reason I feel like I need input from others for this one, which is unusual.)
Personally, I always figured he would be afraid of water. I don’t know why, just something about how he threw himself in the water in A Day in the Death, seeming to hope and/or expect it to kill him. (Not to mention his reaction to opening his eyes in the water and realising he was still alive.)
I also like the headcanon that he used to be afraid of heights, but insisted on challenging himself about that fear until he could stand perched on a pretty high building and look down at the ground without really being afraid anymore.
my poor ships
no okay guess not
I kind of love this scene. It’s just so interesting. Because knowing the way Owen used to be before Katie died, and the way he is now, makes me wonder what sort of steps were taken between his joining Torchwood and the moment we meet him in Everything Changes. And I love that this episode brings out a softer, more vulnerable, scared Owen. And one that is much kinder.
Also, I adore Diane. One, she is badass. Two, she made Owen vulnerable and softened him and eventually broke him (and I love things that break my favourite characters’ hearts). And she’s just fucking awesome in general.
Diane’s comment “I don’t see why they should be mutually exclusive” perfectly sums up what I’m thinking whenever I see arguments about how one cannot expect both equality and chivalry. Yes, one damn well can! Showing consideration for someone and being polite is not demeaning them as a person or doubting their own capability to pull out a chair, ffs.
(And I think Owen knows this, and is aware of it, and believes it himself, but his ‘real’ self is wrapped up and hidden in so many layers of anger and sarcasm and sexism and prickliness and insults and violence and drunkenness and scorn that he has formed in order to protect it that it takes him a moment or two to let that part of himself through.)
Owen and Ianto together is always a YES.
God, they’re such good partners!
One of my favourite scenes. I just love any interaction between Owen and Ianto, but this scene was particularly good.
So I just found out there’s a thing in England for sort of undergroud tv shows and there’s going to be a lot of people but that’s not the point
the point is
the whole main cast of Torchwood is going to be there, meaning, John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Naoko Mori, Kai Owens, Gareth David-Lloyd,…
FUCK YOU, ENGLAND! FUCK YOU! WHY CAN’T THEY DO THIS IN THE US? I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TO GO TO THIS AND MEET GARETH AND BURN AND JOHN. AND NAOKO AND EVE, BUT MOSTLY THE GUYS.
FUCK YOU WHY DO I HAVE TO LIVE IN THE STATES.
IF ANYONE STILL WANTS TO GIVE ME A SLIGHTLY BELATED BIRTHDAY GIFT
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE
I WOULD DO SO MUCH IF I COULD GO THERE AHHHH
i can’t help but laugh when people say they’re going to start watching torchwood to take their minds off the heartbreak they’ve gone through when watching doctor who
