Summary: Some diseases have no cure.
Funny thing, working for Torchwood.
You think you’re getting away from humanity by working with aliens; that’s what you heard Jack promise, even if it has nothing to do with what he actually said.
You’ve diagnosed your co-workers with the terminal condition of being human. You love them all and hate yourself for letting them get so close.
Jack comes to your apartment looking for god knows what. You used to fuck him on nights like this; now all you have are words. He spends hours talking about Gwen, and you know he’ll never get over her.
You never did.
