Drabble: Scarred Love

Title: Scarred Love

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen, Tosh

Rating: G

Spoilers: Fragments, Reset, Exit Wounds – but with an AU twist.

Summary: They’re both scarred.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: For mahmfic’s prompt ‘Scarred Love’

They both have scars, physical ones from bullet wounds and emotional ones from… well, from life taking every opportunity to kick them in the teeth.

Lost loves, parental neglect, imprisonment; few people come to Torchwood undamaged and they’re no exception.


It takes almost dying to make Owen notice Tosh, see her clearly for the first time. And just as he starts to consider a relationship with her, she almost dies at Gray’s hands. Saving her life cements the bond between them.

At night they trace each other’s scars tenderly.

Without them, they might not be where they are now. Together.

The End


ROFLMAO! Truly delightful image!

Glad to hear you're starting to feel human again.

Thank you!
I'm glad Owen's eyes were finally opened to what everyone else already knew--Tosh is perfect for him. :)

And in your AU they get to enjoy it some quality time together. :)
They deserve to be happy as much as Jack and Ianto do.

Thank you.
That was lovely.
Thank you, I thought it turned out quite well - after umpteen re-writes, lol!
loved it!!! it really shows that how even from bad situations, love can be born!
Exactly. Sometimes terrible things happen to people but something wonderful comes out of it that might not have happened otherwise.

Thank you.

Oh why, why, why didn't it go like this?
Because RTD thinks the only way to create drama is to kill people?

I have several different versions of how Tosh and Owen could have survived in my head, another one is in the process of being written. I think you can get more drama from people surviving against the odds and rebuilding their lives afterwards than from just killing people willy nilly.

Thank you.
If only... very beautiful.
I like the characters in Torchwood so much that I don't understand how their creator never used them accordingly.
I know! They had so much potential, but he just wasted them. Hopefully I'm treating them better.

Thank you!

(I have written one for your prompt, just haven't got around to posting it yet.)
So sad, I so loved wished it was cannon that they were together.

great fic.
Thank you.

At least in MY canon they're together. Here at the home of fluff, everyone gets their happy endings. ;)
Very nice! And so very true of T3's people, especially. Love to see something on Owen and Tosh;I still don't like that canon did to them.

You really write some wonderful drabbles ... :D
Thank you =D

I don't like what happened to Owen, Tosh and Ianto, so since that was fiction anyway, I just replace whaty I didn't like with something I prefer, lol!

Torchwood Three was full of damaged people, but they put each other back together again and saved lives, they never gave up.
Thank you, they deserve a chance at happiness.
Aww love it.
Sad but sweet and hopeful at the same time.

You said there was an au twist? That's not au- thats how it happened (in my head canon anyway.)
Yeah, but some people out there seem to think things went differently. No idea what they're on about, but sometimes you have to humour them ;)

They went through some bad stuff, but it's brought them together and they're stronger because of it.

Thank you.

This is making me miss the show! :*) But this is still such a heartwarming, real fic and I love it *hugs* <3<3
Thank you! It's what I wish had happened, they deserved to have a chance at happiness.
Thank you.

They deserved to find happiness.
This is the way it should have happened in the series.
It is, so as far as I'm concerned, it did ;)

Thank you!
