I really like this insight into Owen's thoughts and behaviour. You can understand why he is the way he is and how he doesn't really want to be how he is. He's been through so much loss and pain and he's inflicting it on everyone else around him. At least eventually he realizes that the team knows that Owen cares inside and he starts to change a bit. Owen's been through too much. Great story.
Author's Response: Thank you! I wanted to make Owen self-aware, but also have him realise the team is fully aware of why he behaves the way he does. They care about him even if he doesn't care about himself.
