Drabble: Red Paint

Title: Red Paint

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Tosh.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 334 – Red at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: The Origin of the Hub’s wall art.

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

Standing on the catwalk, Tosh dipped her brush in red paint and swept it across the bare wall. She tuned out the quiet sounds of the Hub in night mode, her entire concentration focussed on the image slowly taking shape before her. It was as though it already existed beneath the concrete’s surface; she was merely making it visible.

Dragons appeared in both Welsh and Japanese mythology, symbols of strength and power, yet elusive and mysterious. It seemed an appropriate emblem for Torchwood, an organisation as legendary and secretive as the winged creature. Perhaps it would bring them good fortune.

The End


I love the idea of Tosh painting that dragon.
It's an idea I've seen before so I decided to write my own version!

Thank you!
Loved that! I can see Tosh painting that dragon. :)
It seemed fitting!

Thank you.

I love that Tosh is still able to see the beauty in their jobs.
Tosh was one in a million.

Thank you.
Lovely. I can just see her painting it. :-)

I read a fic a while back where Gwen and Ianto were cleaning the Hub (don't know why - presumably something alien exploded or something) and in the process they washed off Tosh's dragon painting and were really upset at it's loss because it was after Tosh and Owen had died. I don't remember details of the story. I think it was only a short fic or a drabble. Was it one of yours?
Not mine, but might have been for the 'worms' challenge, I remember reading it. Could've been scottishwillow, or m_findlow. It's so sad, nearly broke my heart.

It just feels like it would've been Tosh's work.

Thank you!
I like this idea.
But it wasn't the whelsh Dragon???
The pictures from the Torchwood set show something that looks more like a Chinese or Japanese dragon.

Thank you.
