Characters/Pairings: Toshiko Sato/Owen Harper
Warnings: Spoilers for Torchwood S2 finale "Exit Wounds"
Recced because: I'm taking a side trip in the Whoniverse to Torchwood, with this story. It stars two of my favorite Torchwood operatives: quietly strong Toshiko Sato, computer whiz and researcher extaordinaire, and the man she's lately cared for, Owen Harper, the brilliant doctor who only lately - very lately - has realized his feelings for her. Bubbles San takes a lightly stylized tone in this short, and sweet, story. Far from hampering her respectful grasp of both characters, or their interaction with each other, this deliberate fairy-tale illuminates both.
