That's all you get. Ask me one question. Any one question, anything, no matter how crazy it is. An honest answer. No catch.

All comments will be screened so your question stays private between you and me, and only you will get to see my answer to your question. But I dare you to repost this and see what people ask you.

(ooc: Not really screening the comments, but the conversations are to be treated as private.)

Diminishing Returns

Owen nearly drops the keys trying to get the door of his flat unlocked. His companion giggles and gropes at his arse while he bends down to pick them up again. After some annoyed jiggling of said keys, the door finally swings open and the two of them stumble over the threshold.

They're both rollicking drunk.

And pawing at each other in that uncoordinated and slightly ineffectual way that people do when they've had one too many and are desperately wanting to shag each other's brains out.

Cut for sexual situations and profanityCollapse )

OOC: Yes.I'm alive! Hugs all around.

Sorry for being horrendously MIA these past few weeks. The changeover at work has involved many a 10-12 hour work day and meant I've been getting home when the little one is already asleep which makes for a very cranky exhausted mum. Anyways, the Go Live week is over and I am back to my scheduled programming. Huzzah!!! And shall be re-inserting Owen back into the mix especially at RS once I have caught up on the reading.

Thanks to everyone who sent me a concerned note or message, you are all fabulous and I really appreciated it. *hugs*
Owen was actually a bit nervous. Which was stupid, really. It was only a second date, for heaven's sake. But how long had it been since he'd actually gone on a proper second date with someone? Diane? It was a troubling thought.

And fuck, Reinette was so extremely out of his league that it was completely laughable, and yet she'd accepted. Which made him wonder just why she had.

After all, he had an ulterior motive. Or so he told himself. But let's face it, she was extraordinary. He didn't need to consult the fucking history books to know that. He had eyes, and ears, and other body parts which responded appropriately to her subtle allure.

And for some odd reason, she didn't find him all that obnoxious. Most fucking peculiar. Usually that was part of his...charm.

Well, there was no point in trying to second guess the whys and wherefores because he'd reached the point on the docks that he'd specified and she was due to arrive any minute now. On foot, since she'd made it clear that she still wasn't really that fond of cars. Owen had decided that the date ought to be a surprise, and so had only told her to dress formally and to meet him down on Mermaid Quay at 7 o'clock.

He was wearing a rather dashing suit. Not exactly a tux, but close enough. White shirt even, but he hadn't bothered with a tie. Still, on occasion he scrubbed up fairly well, if he did say so himself. He leaned on the railing, looking out at the harbour and resisted the urge to fidget with his cuff or glance at his watch.

OOC: Tired mumblings

My humble apologies to anyone waiting for tags from me. I'm afraid RL has been kicking my butt these past couple of weeks. My employment is going through a big change at the moment, and my 8 month old son has been suffering though his first major cold/flu all week. So right now I running on empty, fighting off the cold myself  and pretty brain fried.

Thank you for being patient and I hope I can bring Owen back into play - causing trouble, annoying Jack, flirting his arse off and taking names - real soon.
It was an unfamiliar feeling.

Owen wasn't sure how it had happened, or if he was entirely comfortable with it yet, but...

For the first time in ages, he'd actually looked forward to coming to work. Had woken up with a smile on his face and no hang-over. Had bloody well hummed in the SUV on the way to the Hub.

It'd only been a few days, but something had happened to put him in an uncharacteristically good mood. He hoped to fucking god that no-one else had noticed. Especially not Ianto. Ianto never missed a thing, which was a particularly annoying trait of his.

But, yeah. Owen felt good. He felt at peace with himself. There was nothing to rage at. Nothing to be unsatisfied or disappointed about. Things had picked up.

He knew it couldn't last, but that unfamiliar feeling...it wasn't so bad, really.

He was happy. He was content to just be.

He was useful. His expertise was actually being appreciated.

They even completed each other's sentences. Each other's thoughts. It was really quite fucking amusing when you thought about it.

And she laughed at his jokes. Even the lame ones. She gave as good as she got. Even when she rolled her eyes at him, he knew she was smiling on the inside.

With Diane it had been all overwhelming passion, and terror, and the grandness of it all. Casablanca on fucking speed. Doomed from the start.

This time he was comfortable, but completely intrigued as well. And not bored one bit. Not by a long stretch. Never a dull moment so far.

And she understood. Knew what it was like to have that burden. That compulsive desire to save people.

His intellect -- so often a turn off with his pulls, that part of him which was all about the science, the minute facts and details and probabilities and trivia that he needed to keep crammed in his head -- it wasn't an issue. In fact, he was quite bloody sure he could learn a thing or two from her. It made him smirk just thinking about the next time she'd catch him out and arch an eyebrow at him. Not keeping up with your reading? Shame on you, Dr. Harper.

She had a boyfriend, but he could work around that.

And she was fucking beautiful. He'd found himself just gazing at her UNIT ID picture on the monitor. Tosh had caught him at it and he'd accepted a date with her to cover it. Poor Tosh. He sort of felt bad about that, but he hadn't wanted it to get around the Hub. Not yet.

But this feeling, it was definitely starting to grow on him.

And there was no rush, was there? No need to set things in motion.

It was only the beginning, right?

Maybe this time he'd slow down and enjoy the ride.

Strange. This time he wasn't afraid at all.
