Drabble: Doctor Owen Harper

Title: Doctor Owen Harper

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen

Rating: PG

Spoilers: Anything with Owen being Owen.

Summary: This is what he is.

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

A/N: For mahmfic’s prompt ‘doctor’

Owen knows he’s a pain in the arse; a cynical, lazy, sarcastic bastard and he’ll make no apologies for that. He has his reasons and those who need to, know what they are. Everyone else can take him as they find him or get stuffed, and quite frankly he couldn’t care less which.

But for all his cynicism and bitterness, first and foremost he’s a doctor, and God help anyone who gets in the way of him doing his job.

Human or alien, doesn’t matter; if they’re hurting he’ll fix them, or bust a gut trying.

He has no choice.

The End


What a beautiful description of the acerbic doctor, so true !!
Thank you! I wanted to see if i could capture the essence of owen in a drabble. He's a tricky character in a lot of ways. On the surface he's not a nice person, but inside he's a caring man dedicated to healing.
Lovely look deeper into Owen.

Great drabble.
Thank you! Glad you like it =)

I wanted to see if I could explore Owen a bit, maybe understand him better.
Yep, that's Owen. He's a prick, but he's also quite wonderful.
Thank you!

There are two contradictory sides to Owen, it makes him intriguing =)
I loved this insight into Owen's psyche! Well done, You!!
Out of all the TW characters, I love Ianto, Jack, Tosh and can't stand Gwen, I relate best to Owen; and it was almost like you described my own character in that first paragraph of your drabble. :P
Thank you!

I relate most to Ianto at his most downtrodden and put upon, but Owen fascinates me. He's so full of contradictions, a prickly character bent on keeping people from getting too close to his already shattered heart, a cynical, unrepentant bastard with a caring heart and healing hands. I love that he doesn't care what people think of him. It's liberating writing that side of him.
Owen is awesome! :)
(Spoiler Warning)
He didn't deserve to die :'(
My Owen doesn't die! Well, not until he gets really old!
Oh sure, sorry I forgot! ;D
I wish he and Tosh had become a couple. They would be cute together :3
They do in some of my longer fics, and in fics by other people too! You have a lot to discover, we Torchwood fic riters are very determined to fix all the errors in the series!

Thank God for fanfiction! :D Now I really have to go check out some Torchwood fics - right after I watch the last episode of Children Of The Earth ;D
(Spoiler warning)
I can't believe Ianto died already! Waaah! And it was such a sad death, too! D: Well at least he died in Jack's arms, but still... :'(
Lalalalala Never happened! I refuse to consider CoE as part of Torchwood, it's just Jack's basd dream, ianto's fine! Denial is lovely this time of year ;)
This is exactly how I see Owen - he's a right pain in the arse, but get between him and someone who's been hurt, and look out.
Thank you!

He's often grumpy and unpleasant, but he takes his oath as a doctor seriously!
So beautiful... As ever :D You're the Great Queen of the Drabbles.
*blushes* Thank you!
Exactly the way I see him.
Thank you Glad I captured him correctly!
Wonderful character study in so few words. Well done!
Thank you!

I was given the prompt 'Doctor' and I just wanted to try to captute the esence of Owen in a drabble, glad you think it worked!
Bless him.
Good character study.
Thank you! Owen's an interestingly complex character.
Perfect Owen.
Thanks! I'm pleased you think so =)
*sigh* So true. Miss him, in a way :-/
Even when I didn't particularly like Owen, I found him interesting and I respected him for not pretending to be anything but what he was. He knew he was a bastard but he didn't care.

Thank you!
Thank you! I wanted to see if Owen could be sketched out in 100 words. He's an interesting character, full of contradictions!
