Drabble: Bitter Thoughts

Title: Bitter Thoughts

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Tosh, mentions Gwen and Owen

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 383: Unrequited at tw100

Spoilers: Greeks Bearing Gifts.

Summary: Tosh watches Owen and Gwen together.

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







Tosh was an old hand when it came to unrequited love. Owen was far from being her first crush, but even back in school, the boys preferred girls with curvaceous figures and little in the way of brains.



She bit her lip, surprised and ashamed by her bitterness and the petty nature of her thoughts. It was just that Gwen was the sort of woman who could have pretty much anyone she wanted. She already had a boyfriend she went on about all the time, so why did she have to have Owen as well?



It just didn’t seem fair.



The End

No it wasnt fair, poor Tosh

great drabble
At least in my version of events se gets her man in the end!

Thank you!
Gwen and Owen never made sense to me.
Me neither. Gwen should have stuck with her boyfriend.
Frankly, Tosh have curves too, and she´s more inteligent and beatiful (much more than Gwen) - we can see it especially in Adam -. I never understood why EVERYBODY had to fall in love with Gwen. Why? In TW there are people really fascinating and beautiful, and with a lovely heart (much more than her, sincerely).
I agree wholeheartedly, but this was from Tosh's POV, and she does have a bit of an inferiority complex when it comes to her sense of her own attractiveness, and she probably wasn't very curvy back in her school days. I tried not to reflect my own thoughts and feelings in this one but think of what might have been going through Tosh's head at that point in time.

Personally, I've never seen the appeal of Gwen, I find her shallow, selfish, and a hypocrite, but Tosh is such a genuine, caring person.

Thank you.
