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

Comments

I'm not sure that it is, because I take issue with her 'liking' to do it. Good investigators can do that, but it's not necessarily something they enjoy. With Gwen, the nosiness never stops, she pries into things she has no business knowing, just out of nosiness. She's probably a gossip too, spilling other people's private matters to everyone.

(Does it show that I don't like Gwen?)

Thank you.
