so long as there shall exist a social condemnation, which, in the face of civilization, complicates a destiny that is divine with human fatality; so long as the three problems of the age—the degradation of man by poverty, the ruin of women by starvation, and the dwarfing of childhood by night—are not solved; so long as social asphyxia shall be possible; so long as ignorance and misery remain on earth, books like this cannot be useless.
—preface to les misérables, by victor hugo
Say that you want it too. Because it’s so easy to crossover Torchwood and Shatterdome.
Because it’s plenty of plot possibilities.
Because… BURN GORMAN. Sexy and smart Dr. Owen Harper, oh dear god.
Honestly, we all need much more of Gorman charachters. Besides, why it’s legal to sandwich Tony Stark between Steve Rogers and Johnny Storm and not doing the same in our case? I’m sure lab orgy would be awesome. For science!
I already imagine happy enthusiastic chat between Owen and Newton over some piece of kaiju and Hermann glowering at them (but secretly looking ang getting jealous)
I know that i’m a bad person. But i want it like hell.
DAMN IT EVERY TIME THIS IS ON MY DASH I NEARLY THROW UP LAUGHING
Both characters are based on Eugene Vidocq. One represents his rebellion against society, the other his loyalty to it. Neither idea could exist without the other: they are two parts of a whole. And Victor Hugo wrote them that way for this very purpose. Having them together makes more sense…
