Author's summary: "Do you ever get the feeling that we're the best two?"
Characters/Pairings: Tosh, Ianto, Owen, Jack, Gwen
Recced because: In typically incompetent Torchwood fashion, Owen accidentally vaporizes Ianto and Tosh. (Well, kind of.) And a story with a premise like that has to go somewhere great. Sure enough: Tosh and Ianto find themselves lurking around the hub, able to communicate with each other yet unseen and unheard by their colleagues. It's good to have the focus on these two underused characters, and I can't argue too much with the last line.
"What does it do?" asked Gwen, opening a box labelled 'miscellaneous weapons.'
"I don't know," answered Tosh. "None of my scans could penetrate it."
"Hey!" called Ianto, "watch where you point that-"
"Oh," said Owen dully. "That's what it does."
"Jack!" called Gwen, "you'd better come down here. Owen's just vaporised Ianto and Tosh."
