Drabble: Her Father’s Words

Title: Her Father’s Words

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Gwen, Gwen’s Dad, Jack, Torchwood Team

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 332 – Gwen Cooper at tw100

Spoilers: Everything Changes.

Summary: There’s a fine line between curiosity and snooping.

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

“I love you, duckling,” Gwen’s father told her when he caught her snooping where she shouldn’t. “But there’s a big difference between being curious and being nosy. One of these days, you’ll put your nose somewhere it doesn’t belong, and you’ll get in real trouble.”

Peering down through the pouring rain from the multi-storey car park, watching ‘Special Ops’ bring the murder victim back to life, she remembered her dad’s words.

“Maybe there’s no right way of doing it,” the leader said before looking straight up at her. “What do you think?”

Fleeing the scene, she thought, ‘Dad was right.’

The End


Oh this gave me a thrill! Back at the beginning before RTD have a chance to make Gwen an obnoxious character !
I'll confess, the first episode was when I started to dislike her. Her prying, lying to Rhys for no reason, the fact that she got an innocent caretaker killed and her incompetence as a policewoman didn't endear her to me. Surprisingly, she managed to go downhill from there =/

I don't expect characters to be perfect, but I do want them to be believable, and as a PC, she definitely wasn't. Now if she'd been a JOURNALIST, I could have understood and even accepted a lot of her stupid behaviour. It would have made sense.

Thank you.
