Drabble: Whoever She Wanted To Be

Title: Whoever She Wanted To Be

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Suzie, mentions Gwen and Jack

Rating: PG

Written For: Challenge 325 – Clean Slate at tw100

Spoilers: Everything Changes, They Keep Killing Suzie.

Summary: Suzie’s plan has worked; she’s getting a whole new life.

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

A/N: The second of my three drabbles today!

Her plan has worked like a charm, even though it had meant being dead for a time. That part hadn’t been pleasant, but it was worth it.

She’d taken her revenge against her father, stealing away what little life he had left; now she’d take someone else’s.

Cooper slumped in the seat beside her, life slipping away second by second. Suzie felt it filling her to the brim. Jack would be after her, but he’d be too late.

The coast, the ferry, then hello new life! Death had wiped the slate clean; she could be whoever she wanted to be.

The End


I like to think Suzie WAS a good, decent person, probably a bit damaged even before she joined Torchwood, but then the glove latched onto her, twisting and warping her for its own purposes and she was lost. It wasn't designed for use by humans, so I guess the human mind isn't strong enough to control it and gets taken over without even the person being taken over having any idea that it's happening.

I see Suzie as a victim of alien technology just as much as Lisa was. Maybe she could have been saved, but then she would have been left with the guilt for all those she killed. It would have been fascinating to see Torchwood trying to save her from herself and from the glove's influence.

Thank you!
