Pairings: Jack/Gwen, Gwen/Rhys
Notes: Written for Torchwood100. Challenge #253-Moving Mountains. Thanks to twcardiff for SPaG lookover. Comments and concrit welcome. Takes place in the days following Meat.
Summary: Jack appreciates the challenge.
Jack continued his observation of Gwen and Rhys.
There was a solidity to Rhys; a strength of character that Jack grudgingly admired. When Rhys and Gwen fought, they were honest, sometimes brutally so. They’d pick at old wounds and deep insecurities, drive each other to drink or tears and come back for more. Their shared history made Rhys a formidable obstacle. He was Gwen’s rock and the mountain that Jack would have to move to get her.
He’d come back for Gwen Cooper. Facing a challenge made it even better.
Her mountain of a man was just what he needed.
