Ganked from babykid528


Comment with a character and I'll answer the following five questions about them.


babykid528 gave me Gwen Cooper.




1. Do you like this character?
I do. Somewhat defiantly, because I know people in the fandom hate her and she has done insanely unlikeable things. However, I would say she is not a Mary Sue and she definitely has faced the consequences of her actions. I think she's portrayed as someone trying to do the right thing in a very dark, cynical situation, and it's interesting to see her idealism getting peeled away in the face. Look at the difference between Random Shoes and Adrift, which are two epsiodes much reviled by those who hate her. (Clearly the hand-job in Adrift was thrown in to keep some of those people from trashing the episode as badly as they trashed Random Shoes for being completely Gwen-centric.) In one, there's a lightness and innocence and Gwen actually accomplishes something in her quest. In the second, the quest is folly and causes more pain to everyone, especially Gwen herself.

2. What name/s do you call this character?
Usally Gwen. Sometimes "Gwen Cooper" when I'm writing from Jack's admiring POV or Ianto's angry, dismissive one.

3. What image/color do you associate with this character?
Color would be black for her shiny black hair and shiny, sexy black leather jacket.


4. What image-song do you associate with this character?
God Only Knows What I'd Be Without You-The Beach Boys (Jack's POV)


5. What blood-type do you think this character is?
AB-It's Torchwood, you gotta go both ways.

6. Of all of the titles that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?
Is this the worst phrased question EVER?
Considering that in canon she's slept with Rhys and Owen, snogged Karys and had UST up the wazoo with Jack, there's plenty of options. I WANT canon Jack/Gwen (with ILU and graphic sex) but only for the epic wank that would ensue, and because John and Eve would make it so damn hot. I love the bits of Gwen/Owen we got, and I've written Gwen/Martha femslash because someone asked me to and you know...it's Torchwood. I've even written Gwen/Ianto because I like the dynamic although the more I get dug into my anti-Ianto trench the less likely it seems because one finds it difficult to imagine Ianto giving an inch on his Jack obsession. (I'm still trying to find a way to make plausible J/I/G-since I believe to my soul that Jack wants it and WLB Ianto fights me every step of the way. It will happen for Halloween though.)

Note to the Rhys fans...sorry. Rhys has never done it for me, and clearly whatever they have that she keeps running back to isn't enough, even though she wants to believe it is.



7. What would you want to say to this character?
Illegitimi non carborundum.


8. What do you want to do with this character:
Hang out and talk about Jack.




1. Do you like this character?
LOVE! Lovelovelovelovelove. And lust after, of course. I love him and will forgive him anything ***AS LONG AS IT'S IN CHARACTER*** Conning, lying, stealing, cheating, screwing anything that moves and being an all around bastard is in character. Especially leaving anyone who's delusional enough to think he cares more about them than the Doctor standing in the dust while he runs away as quickly as a wrist-strap will take him to be with the Doctor.

2. What name/s do you call this character?
Jack. The Captain. Captain Jack. Harkness.

3. What image/color do you associate with this character?
The blue of his eyes, the grey of his greatcoat and the blinding white of his smile.

4. What image-song do you associate with this character?
Dancing with Rose Tyler to Moonlight Serenade and Dancing with CJH to A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square.

5. What blood-type do you think this character is?
O-it's Jack. Gotta have an O-joke.

6. Of all of the titles that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?
Anybody. But. Ianto.
The Doctor. Rose. Rose and The Doctor. Gwen. Owen. Tosh. Capt. John. Estelle. Dead Wife. CJH. The boy and girl next door on his home planet. Woman he stole the ship from. Algy. Chantho. Cute guy from Utopia. Lynda with a Y. Twin acrobats. Executioners. Vincent/Vanessa. Kathy Swanson. Anybody in the whole fucking universe.


7. What would you want to say to this character?
Believe me, believe me, I can't help but love you, but believe me, I'll never tie you down. (Unless you really want me to.)


8. What do you want to do with this character:
Have him fuck me three ways from sundown, and then go out somewhere so that we were seen together and then go back and do it again.




1. Do you like this character?
I do. Slightly less than Nine, but I do like him, and probably love him as well. He's very endearing, although a bit of a light-weight. And I'm still pissed about his treatment of both Jack and Martha.

2. What name/s do you call this character?
Ten. The Doctor. Mr. Mope

3. What image/color do you associate with this character?
Blue. The Tardis and the Blue suit from Journey's End, as well as his demeanour in Series 3 and 4.

4. What image-song do you associate with this character?
Travelin' Man. (He thinks he's Elvis, but he's really Ricky Nelson. Mind you, I love Ricky Nelson.)

5. What blood-type do you think this character is?
Something that we don't know about here on earth.

6. Of all of the titles that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?
My shipper heart says Jack, but I'm not an idiot. There's no way to get around the sparkle when Ten and Rose smile at each other.


7. What would you want to say to this character?
Get OVER IT, big guy!

8. What do you want to do with this character:
Slap him silly, until he figures out how much he needs Jack, then go to Cardiff get Jack (who will hopefully leave without even bothering to say good-bye to Ianto--AGAIN!!!) and take off on the TARDIS with the two of them. If I get the threesome, awesome, but I'll be happy with Jack getting HIS Doctor.
