Title: Ride On Technology

Toshiko Sato - February 21, 2012 09:00 PM (GMT)
Toshiko Sato

Toshiko is a very private person therefore she seems shy. In fact she isn't, she knows what she wants and what she believes in. The team is very important to her and she quietly takes care of them.
She is a bit of an idealist in the matter of humanity. She realizes that there are things that are simply the way they are and they work in a certain way, but she works in Torchwood to protect the good of humanity and it's her drive to go on.

She's a rather friendly person, trying to be nice to everyone equally. She's a bit too trusting though.
Since she will take care of you and consider your thoughts she makes a great friend. But of course it's not that easy. Everyone's got their quirks. Hers are that she seeks trust, and also that she's torn between her work and her personal feelings.
She won't destroy a relationship because of some mental disorder though.

I can't really see her hating on anyone. Not for simply being a person anyway. She will take care of something that threatens earth or humanity, but she will only take personal offence if someone she loves is threatened, or well... if someone is an ass without reason. Though she will try to find reason and if someone gets on her nerves she knows how to defend herself.

In the past she's had few lovers. She had a relationship with Mary, but she saw her more as a friend who she could rely on, the sexual part in that relationship just happened.
Later she fell in love with Tommy, but he needed to return to his timeline in 1918 to fix the timeline and with Jack's help she was able to be the one to convince him to do that.
She's always had a crush on Owen though, something he never realized. And she's not the one to just go and tell what she feels.
I'm open for more romance suggestions. She doesn't fall in love randomly though so there should be good reason or it could simply develop while we plot <3

Ianto and Toshiko:

Of course, these two being the quieter and most well-behaved out of the team (crazy stunts with cybermen and aliens with mind reading devices aside), I can see them getting on quite well. I won't say they're best chums since I think I remember you saying something about this but I could imagine them probably sympathising with each other, especially in the romance department (well, he's atleast with the guy he likes, even if it's not perfection).


We can see where things go, maybe have these two work together solving a mystery perhaps (they're both very intelligent and all). :]

Toshiko Sato - March 9, 2012 03:21 PM (GMT)
The reason I'm skeptical with them is because when Toshiko had the medal from Mary she listened to his thoughts and she had no idea what he felt therefore I concluded they don't know each other too well. Even later I couldn't see them talking much or anything. It always seemed to me like Ianto only had a better connection to Jack and only "watched" the others.

I'm not at all against having a thread with these two... but exactly because both are a bit more quiet they don't talk much. If both were shy and looking for friends, then yeah, I could see them making eye contact and then becoming best friends xD *exaggerated* But Tosh knows what she wants, kind of, and she still didn't talk much with Ianto. I believe there's just not too much chemistry between them. Might be just me though. I'm not sure, but did you suggest a kind of romance?
I'll think about everything again though, my opinion might change.

Other than that, yeah, I don't mind having a thread with them. Do you want them to be in the team, or rather alone? If it's the latter Tosh might come into conversation with him for doing something? You may remember she developed a time capsule thing, I already used that in my rp sample, but I'd also like to use it in the rp. So maybe they could talk about that? She'd kind of give him an idea about what she plans, but because she wants it to be a surprise she wouldn't tell too much. Just my thought.
Ianto could also ask Tosh something. Dunno, what do you think?
In my opinion it should definitely placed in the hub.

Ianto Jones - March 16, 2012 11:10 PM (GMT)
Yes! I think it's all a matter of interpretation and we rarely got to see much personal interaction as it was mainly mission mission mission. Of course, both being quite private people, they wouldn't be too close and open with each other, but I could imagine they're a lot more amicable with each other than they both are with Owen (let's face it: Owen's an ass).

In the hub, yeah. Doing something. Tosh working on something and...puzzled, frustrated, and Ianto could come along and try and help? Team effort, maybe some bonding (I do think they should become closer, of course not an overnight jobesq way XD).

So yes! Erm. I can't think of how to start right now, you any good with starters?

The Doctor - March 20, 2012 10:31 PM (GMT)
The Doctor and Toshiko:

These two have met! And I can imagine after some time he would definitely remember her. Of course, he'll look a madman to poor Toshiko, but hopefully he'll refresh her memory.

They would perhaps get on, especially since she's intelligent and they can bounce off each other. He may or may not offer her a trip somewhere ("Is there a historical figure you would like to meet? ; )" )

Your thoughts?

Owen Harper - March 20, 2012 11:51 PM (GMT)
Just adding a comment:

I played the Doctor in a game once and never saw Torchwood. I knew the Tenth Doctor and not Nine at the moment.

My Tenth Doctor loved Toshiko. He was thinking she was brilliant and was planning to invite Toshiko to be his companion. He thought she was brilliant enough.

That was my add on. =)

Toshiko Sato - March 21, 2012 06:33 AM (GMT)
Yeah, I can start though in my head she would do something in the first post, he would do something in the first post, and only in the third post she'll turn to him or something. I'd like to try it naturally this time. I hope you're patient enough with me here xD I can start then :3

Yeah, I can totally imagine her wide eyes of disbelief! xD I also see them getting along because she has extensive knowledge about technological stuff and could keep up with him. The one trip thingy is also an option though somehow they don't go well as longterm companions in my head. She's a bit too... modest or something. I always see the Doctor with self-confident women who often take action themselves, and Toshiko isn't that brash. She does take action herself, but yeah... *hard to explain* Also I think she will usually choose Torchwood over anything else, it fits her. Wooh... that's it? They'll meet, get along and then part again, in my head at least.

The Doctor - March 21, 2012 09:57 AM (GMT)
Ianto and Tosh:

Yes! I am patient, no worries. <3 I suck at starters if I don't have a vivid idea in my head.


The Doctor and Tosh:

Oh no, the one trip would be just fine. The Doctor may possibly realise how withdrawn she is and all. Plus, he has a full-time companion in Donna right now (who we shall say is visiting her grandad while this happens), so he would probably know that while Donna would be quite fine with another friend along, it might be too much for Toshiko. :3

I have an idea in my head to start, I'm thinking perhaps she stumbles on her way to work upon him using his stethoscope on the wall. It'd be is that man doing?! And let's face it, the Doctor is one of those who has probably elicited that reaction from a few people! XD I'm also thinking, dependent on how the thread goes (threads take turns so much it's hard to predict XD), maybe Toshiko can help the process of the Doctor understanding and trusting this new Torchwood.

Toshiko Sato - March 30, 2012 05:31 PM (GMT)
Yes, I think Toshiko would respect her goals and ambitions. She might even come to see her as an example for all she believes in. Because Toshiko is such a private person Sarah might need to show interest in what Tosh's doing.
I think they'll simply meet whenever Sarah should visit Jack/Torchwood or something. They could also be on the same case i.e. they meet when they both pursue the same alien or something. I suppose the indirect way through Torchwood is more natural though.

<div style="text-indent:20px; width:150px; padding:4px; font-family:times new roman; font-size:10; color:#2F2635; line-height:95%;text-align:justify;"> Jenny would be fascinated by Tosh. I think 'polar opposites attract' might work for these two. Jenny's very much alive, vibrant and cheerful and never stopping, whether it's moving or talking. I'm thinking that they might complement each other a little, if you catch my drift. Tosh can learn Jenny how to behave a little, and Jenny can try to get Tosh to act a bit more exuberant at times. And she has to force Tosh to change her clothes at one point, be it under miscellaneous circumstances or not, Tosh will wear leather pants at some point. <p>

First, however, they might tentatively talk a little, Jenny can try to figure out her whereabouts, Tosh can inquire about that far future Jenny came from, they can discuss tech and other everyday stuff? </div>

Toshiko Sato - April 22, 2012 11:01 AM (GMT)
Yep, I can see where you're getting and I can also see it work out, though I have no idea how it's going to be when we start to rp.

Do you already have plans what's going to happen with her first? It would seem convenient if Torchwood found her first, though it wouldn't be unlikely! There was a crashed ship after all and that will draw quite some attention. Do you have an idea where exactly she has crashed? (If you wrote that in your app I'm sorry ;___;)
I believe if Torchwood picks her up first you'll probably be most likely to rp with Jack first and Toshiko later (probably saying the obvious). You could also rp with Gothart though (and then Torchwood meets them both, don't know what would happen then).

Anyway, I'm sure there will be some changes in your char after you start rping, that's why I'm reluctant to make any decisions on what's to happen now. When Torchwood finds her she'll probably start to talk with Toshiko anyway and then let's see what happens and go from there!
