Owen

Drabble: Outside Influence

Title: Outside Influence

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Owen.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 396: Bottle at tw100

Spoilers: Out of Time, Captain Jack Harkness, End of Days.

Summary: Owen wonders why he reacted so badly to Diane leaving.

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







Owen looked around his apartment in disgust; empty bottles lay everywhere, a few half-eaten takeaways scattered among them. How had he let this happen? Even after Katie he’d had enough pride to keep his home in order but since Diane flew out of his life he’d really let himself go.



He’d only known her a matter of days, but he’d fallen hard. She’d been the first person he’d allowed himself to really care for since Katie, but even so, her leaving shouldn’t have destroyed him like this.



Had Bilis Manger manipulated their emotions more than any of them had realised?



The End

Interesting analysis. I didn't think about that last bit.
Neither did I until I started writing the drabble. It's funny the way insight crops up when you're not expecting it. We know that Bilis tried to influence the team to open the Rift - and succeeded - but when did he start manipulating them? Was he the one who caused Diane's plane to get set adrift in time? He wanted to distract Torchwood; if he had anything to do with Diane showing up, then he succeeded with Owen.

Thank you!
We will never know which is a shame. I bet he did. I wish RTD had continued that story line. Too bad Tosh was sidelined in that episode.
Torchwood is a mess of missed opportunities when it comes to storylines. There's so much that they could have followed up on tp make the show deeper and richer in its own mythology, but it just gets glossed over or ignored =(
With all the reboots going on with American Sci-Fi shows, I wish someone would consider doing one for Torchwood. Only if there is a guarantee to make it decent.

A girl can dream.:)
If it's remade though, it HAS to be in Cardiff, with all the things that made it great before and more Jack/Ianto.
Of course. But that means that most of what happened would have to be a dream because RTD destroyed the Torchwoods headquarters.

Unless there is another alternative.?
Just say that all the bad stuff happened in an alternate universe version of Torchwood. I think about it that way already ;)

Thank you!
