Disclaimer: Torchwood, its characters and situations, while created for the express purpose of making me happy, are not mine. No infringement is intended or implied.
Extremely Pretentious Note: Northrop Frye says that we experience narrative in two ways: first, as though we're on a train, each event arising in time and linking causally to what comes subsequently like the ties of a track; second, once we come to the end, like a painting, in which all events are related, not in a linear logic or fashion, but spatially, symbolically, poetically.

As for canonical errors arising from my Janey-come-lateness, my apologies. *frets*

*The title is taken from Dylan Thomas's Fern Hill
