*sort of flops down beside him* Mickey Smith? *holds out her hand* I'm Gwen Cooper. *smiles* I don't think we've met properly.
*glances up from his laptop once, then again and smiles* Just Mickey. *takes her hand and shakes it, smiling* You're working for good ol' T.W. too, yeah?
*smiles and nods* Right. We're to be teammates, just Mickey. *laughs a bit* So, of course, I wanted to start out asking you a favor.
*closes his laptop* Yeah, sure. What's up?
*smiles* Well, it's not official until Jack clears it, but we have that little party coming up, and I need someone I can trust on security. I was going to do it, but Jack needs me in another capacity. *charming smile she learned from Jack* And I heard you know a bit about undercover and alien weaponry.
*blushes! at the smile* Uh.. yeah.. yeah, I mean, I don't know much. I mean, I do as such but.. uh... *realizes he's rambling like an idiot and shuts up* Okay. Yeah. *smiles* I can do that.
*laughs* All right, good. That makes me feel better. *sits back on the bench, looking pointedly at the laptop* So computers, then? Have you talked to Tosh yet?
*shakes his head, looking a little shy* I like computers, but she's like a genius, yeah? *shrugs* I'm just kindof... a little better than civilians. *sheepish smile*
*smiles reassuringly* Well you've already got a leg up on me. I'm lucky I can log in to check my e-mail. And Tosh is a genius, but she's one who loves to talk about her chosen vice. If you ever need anything from her, I'm sure she'd be more than happy to have a chat.
*blushes* Okay. Maybe.. maybe I'll talk to her. So you're second in command, yeah? God it's weird. This version of Torchwood's tiny compared to ours.
*flushes with pride* Oh, yes. Well. Tiny we may be, but we're efficient. I worked in a larger force before - granted, it was only the police services - but I greatly prefer Torchwood. *nods* It easier to get lost in the shuffle when there are so many people, but with us? Everyone depends on everyone else, so I think each of us does his or her job very well because of it.
Yeah. Guess so. I worked in a small group before, it was just me 'an another guy for a while. Kindof.. you know, freedom fighters. We done well enough but then when Rose and her Mum showed up we all joined Torchwood. *grins a little* I say 'joined' but I think it was more a hostile takeover.
*grins* Freedom fighters? I like that. *laughs* Come to it, that's sort of what Torchwood 3 was like. Apparently, we barely had funding, even after Canary Wharf. So most of our equipment is found alien junk, turned up a bit - mostly by Tosh and Jack, and sometimes Owen. *nods* Well, Rose is sort of a... one woman show. So I can picture it.
That was crazy. I was there, you know. Me an' Rose. An Jackie, that's her mum.
I'm sorry, Mickey. *pats his arm* I've heard it was horrible.
We weren't really in the thick of it as much as we coulda been. *looks at her with a smile* You were a PC? In, Cardiff, I guess it was, right?
*nods* I was. *chuckles* I sort of... ingratiated myself with Torchwood.
Tell me about it? *smiles shyly, stretching out on the grass with his hands behind his head*
*grins* Well, I was at the scene of a murder when I first saw Jack and the team. I watched them bring someone back to life, and needless to say, I was intrigued. *chuckles* So like an good constable, I followed up. *shrugs* Jack... I guess he sort of took pity on me or something, and explained the organization to me, though he wiped my memory. *smirks* But I managed to find my way back to the Hub, and... *looks a bit uncomfortable* ...well, Jack offered me a job.
Oh, wow, yeah. *wide eyes* They brought somebody back to life? I know we had something that would kindof.. make zombies but not actual living or breathing people.
*nods, looking away* It didn't last very long, and in the end, as everything, it did more harm than good. *swallows hard* *subject!change* But you... parallel universe, eh? What's that like?
Oh. *was going to ask more, but notes her subject change and leaves it be* Almost exactly the same. *giggles* Only.. the me that was there was named Ricky and he died, so I took his place. Some people were alive that shouldn'ta been and some people were dead. Really weird all around.
*frowns* Sounds like. *thinks then grins a bit* So it's like... Bizarro World? Was Ricky, like, your evil twin?
*giggles* No, he was the leader of a group of freedom fighters and he had a boyfriend. I was.. just an office worker who's girlfriend got stolen by the Doctor. My Gran died a few years back and his was still alive. When he died I took his place so I could you know, do some good. *smiles a little shyly* Couldn't do too much as an office boy, you know?
Stolen b the Doctor? *smiles a bit* Somehow, that sounds accurate. 'm sorry to hear about about your gran. Did Ricky's... take to you?
