Jack turned to where Owen was glowering, off to one side. ‘Owen: what did we learn from the lady’s blood sample?’
Owen’s mouth twisted in that little grimace that, Gwen had noticed, he made when he was stumped but didn’t want to admit it. ‘High levels of blood sugar and lipids, which you’d expect from someone who had eaten recently, and her cortisol levels were elevated, which indicates stress, like she’d been running or been in a fight. Apart from that, the blood work indicates she’s in good health. If she was suffering from some kind of disease I’d be looking for a shitload of leucocytes, that kind of thing, but she’s clear.’
‘And she’s human?’
‘Sorry – didn’t I say? Yes, she’s as human as I am.’
Jack glanced over at Gwen. ‘Do you want to take this one, or shall I?’
‘Let’s give him a free ride,’ Gwen replied. ‘I’m feeling generous.’

Jack’s a bit tough on Owen in this one. 

I heard this in a dream I had.
  • "During the day, we were rivals."
  • "And during the night?"
  • "During the night, he was the love of my life."
  • If anyone wants to use this as a prompt, feel free. Just send me anything so I can read awesomeness.
  • what she says: im fine
  • what she means: the death of Ianto Jones was completely unnecessary and it just makes me angry that they killed of a great potentially bisexual character (even though he said to his sister that it wasn’t men, it was only Jack) and no one cares about him and im just so angry that they couldnt let Jack keep someone he loved even for just a human lifetime and Ianto was so underappreciated and i really really love him and the audio books are great but i just wanted more of him in the tv show and i feel like they wasted a great opportunity for a great plot regarding him and Jack and they completely fucked the show up for me and series 4 sucks ass and everything sucks and I Miss Ianto Jones A Lot™ and then they both die and Jack wakes up among all the bodies and He Just Sits next to Ianto's corpse and mourns and i hate this show

I believe that two people are connected at the heart, and it doesn’t matter what you do, or who you are or where you live; there are no boundaries or barriers if two people are destined to be together.
