Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Gwen, Tosh, Owen, Ianto, Jack.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 395: Mother at tw100

Spoilers: Nothing too specific.

Summary: Gwen wants to know what the team are doing for Mother’s Day

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

“What’s everyone doing for Mother’s day?” Gwen asked. “I’m taking my mum flowers and a card.” She looked questioningly at her teammates.

“I’ve sent my mother Carnations,” Tosh smiled. “Red ones. I won’t get to see her this year.”

“That’s a shame. What about the rest of you?”

“I don’t do Mother’s Day,” said Owen. “Mum kicked me out when I was sixteen.”

“Oh. Ianto?”

“I’ll take flowers to the cemetery.”

“My mother won’t be born for three thousand years,” Jack put in.

Gwen went quiet. Until now, she’d never realised how lucky she was to have a loving mum.

The End


At least everybody answered her politely, she says, looking at Owen strangely.
Even Owen has days when he just can't summon up the energy to be sarcastic or rude, lol! Maybe the way they replied, so matter-of-fact, got through to Gwen better than if they'd been nasty about her question. Then, she could have gone on the defensive, this way she actually had to think about what they said.

Thank you.
I feel kinda sorry for the team.

great drabble
So do I, they've lost so much.

Thank you.
Not everyone comes from a cookie - cut family Gwen!

I wish I could be as blunt as the team when asked personal questions.
Perhaps they've learned that blunt works best with Gwen. It shuts her up quicker.

Thank you.
I'm not so sure about the well-meaning part, but certainly she is thoughtless.

Thank you.
So true, lol!

Another case of open mouth, insert foot.

It's why Gwen's mouth is so big - she's been cramming her foot in it all her life. ;)

Thank you!

Yes Gwen is very lucky.
It's good that she realizes !!
She does occasionally realise that she's blessed, she just forgets quite often.

Thank you!
And once again, she manages to ask the wrong question!
Opens her mouth and shoves her foot straight in it.

Thank you.
