Drabble: One Hell Of A Life

Title: One Hell Of A Life

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Tosh, Owen

Rating: G

Spoilers: Don’t think so.

Summary: A lot can change in fifty years, but some things just get better.

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

A/N: For the prompt ‘Helluva Life’, one of the prompts I didn’t get around to using for tw100’s challenge 292: Billboard Hot 100 last year. I’ve dug them out again to supplement the prompts I got from my f-list, just because there are still loads I wanted to use.

They sat side by side on the park bench, an elderly couple enjoying the warm summer sunshine as they watched children play. Many years ago they’d done the same thing, but back then the children had been their own sons and daughters.

Cardiff had changed dramatically in the last fifty years, but Bute Park remained a green oasis in the heart of the city; it had always been one of their favourite places.

Tosh squeezed Owen’s hand.

“What are you thinking about?”

He smiled at his wife.

“We’ve had one hell of a life, but I wouldn’t change a thing.”

The End


awww so happy to see them alive and happy!
They deserved a long, happy life together too =)

Thank you!
Awwww! I'm so glad they got there. They deserve it. This is far preferable to the canon ending!
They deserved better than they got on the show, so I'm giving them the life they should have had!

Thank you!
*sighs happily* Yes, Tosh and Owen belong together! They make a great couple ^_^
I agree, Owen needed Tosh's stabilising influence just as Jack needed Ianto and Gwen needed Rhys, somone to balance their personalities and ground them.

Thank you!
Oh yes, this is my headcanon now. Tosh and Owen, living happily ever after... *happy sigh*
They deserve to have a long, happy life together and I'm in a position to give it to them - the joys of fanfic!

Thank you!
I love the idea of Owen and Tosh growing old together and able to enjoy their lives. This made me feel all warm inside :)
Thank you! It's kind of an offshoot of The Curry Club, I wanted to show them still happy after all those years together, enjoying their old age =)
Oh my goodness I LOVE THIS SOOO MUCH!! such a beautiful story.
*grins* Thank you! I wanted them to have a happy life together so I wavrd my magic wand =)
Thank you! I like fixing all the things that went wrong with Torchwood =)
I loved this!

This is the life they truly deserved.
I thought so too.

They never got a chance on the show, but that's what fanfiction is for - to write things the way we wanted them to be!

Thank you!
Oh, this is lovely! And it fits an elderly couple I was reading about the other day. :D More Tosh & Owen? pretty please? :D
There will be more when I have the time to write it, have no fear. There will be drabbles, but hopefully some fics too, I'm just tied up with trying to write for my bingo card at the moment.

Thank you!
Hey, you writers are awesome with these bingos; I just sit back with a cold tea and enjoy what you all put out :D

Have there ever been any fics written that covered the team during Jack's absence or during the time before Jack took over TW-Cardiff that simply focused on them respectively? Jack apparently was freelance or archivist for TW-Cardiff; did anyone ever come up with fics on those times? Just curious...there's so much that can be covered by a team of terrific writers!
I know there are some about the team while Jack was gone, especially their trip to the Himalayas, and I've read a few short fics set before Jack took over, but your best bet would be to ask over at twgenrefinders , I'm sure people there would be able to point you in the right direction better than I can, I have trouble remembering titles and authors.

I'm not being so awesome with mine - 25 squares, I've posted 3 fics, have 2 more I can post when I'm ready and two in progress which, with a bit of luck, will account for 7 squares. Assuming I can actually finish them. *rolls eyes* Progress is not exactly fast. o_O
Aww, sweet :-)
*grins* Thankyou! Tosh and Owen were complaining about the lack of fluff in their lives, so I thought I'd better give them some =)
Aww, they broke the Torchwood curse! Brilliant! :D
I think Jack broke the curse for all of them by employing more agents. It means everyonr gets to live the lives they deserve.

Thank you!
Thank you! Tosh and Owen deserved happiness too =)
