The Shrine
fiwen1010 wrote in tw_tourists
The Shrine has come up in a few comments so far, and seems like a popular place to visit. So the question for this week is: What do you think of the Shrine? Have you been to it/do you want to go to it? Would you leave something or have you left something - and what is it/would it be?

What does Ianto's Shrine mean to you?

I haven't been to the shrine as I haven't been to Wales. I do want to visit it but have no plans to leave anything there. When I first found out about the shrine, I was startled and then amused. I found it funny; the fact that people would memorialize a fictional character in such a way. To me the shrine is incredibly human. I see shrines all the time... you drive along and see small memorials on the sides of highways or some such. After 9/11, I visited Ground Zero. Yes, Ianto's shrine is a memorial to a completely fictional character but the idea of paying tribute and memorializing things that are important to us, is a very human trait. Real is relative. And though it wasn't said on Torchwood... "Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?"
