Summary: Tosh understands the language of computers better than she understands people.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
To many people, perhaps even to most, computer code is unfathomable, a mysterious foreign language that only a select few can comprehend. Tosh finds that strange, because for her there’s no mystery to it at all. She finds it as simple to read as English or Japanese, the languages she grew up with.
Computer code is logical and sensible, far more so than any human language. It’s free of emotion and sentiment, dealing solely with facts and logic.
Sometimes Tosh wishes people were more like computers; then maybe there’d be fewer misunderstandings, less chance of someone getting their heart broken.
