Summary: They are so different…
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
A/N: I was struck by this late last night, so I jotted it down. Typed it up just now and it’s 100 words exactly, without editing!
They come from different worlds, and with Torchwood that can be taken literally. She has her origins in the far future; he comes from a world that no longer exists.
They are so different from one another that they can’t even touch, there is no common language that unites them, yet there’s a strange sense of kinship between them. They share an understanding of the vastness of time and space that few here, in this time and place, could comprehend.
Mainframe watches over the hand in its jar and wonders if it feels as out of place as she does.
